'62 Jazzmaster® Journeyman Relic
'62 Jazzmaster® Journeyman Relic®, Rosewood Fingerboard, Aged 3-Color Sunburst
Model Number: 9235001600
The Jazzmaster®—the first Fender® guitar with a rosewood fingerboard—was designed for the jazz market, but while jazz guitarists never adopted it, it was soon a hit with surf guitarists. The Custom Shop ’62 Jazzmaster Journeyman Relic is a cool nod to the offset original and all the surf, rock, punk, postpunk and alt/indie music it has contributed to on stages far and wide. It wears a perfectly worn Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish on its two-piece select alder body, and the rift-sawn maple neck features a ’62 “Jazzmaster C” profile, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium vintage (47095) frets.
The Custom Shop hand-wound Jazzmaster pickups are wound to vintage spec and produce a distinct mellow tone. Vintage wiring includes a three-way toggle switch and two separate volume/tone controls with a lead/rhythm switch. Other features include a four-ply brown shell pickguard, RSD J-Bridge with compensated brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines and a bone nut. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
