Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish Lets guitar age naturally without impeding tone

American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster pickups Re-voiced period-correct tone: open, airy & glassy

For guitarists who must have original-era Jazzmaster sound, look and feel, the Classic Series '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer epitomizes the instrument during the 1960s, when guitarists from coast to coast used it to ride waves of reverb-drenched surf and instrumental music.

With authentic features including a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Surf Green and dual American Vintage Jazzmaster pickups, everything about it takes you back to a wildly creative time when rock music came into its own, from surf to psychedelia and more.

Enjoy proper intonation throughout the entire fretboard due to the fully adjustable six saddle bridge. Dial in a wide variety of tones and volume options from both single coil pickups with the various slide switches and controls.

I own an original 65 Jazzmaster and if you play that and this guitar you would not know the difference in years. They sound the same and best of all they play the same. I own three jazzmasters and this is by far my favorite. It plays like butter, easy soft to the touch and very responsive. The Jazzmaster sound is unmistakable. This guitar has it. I love the Jazzmaster because you can set your rhythm settings and lead setting differently and have them both available at the flick of a switch. The guitar doesn't weigh a ton so its very comfortable to play and you can do most musical styles with it. It's not for shredding but if you play 60's, 70's or 80's rock, jazz or blues then this is by far the guitar you want. I'm very happy with the instrument no adjustment needed and you can play it right out of the box. Of all the Jazzmasters this is the best bang for the buck. zZounds easy payment plan makes this baby easy to own. They are right on the money when it comes to shipping and service as well. Thanks zZounds!
