Fender Jazzmaster 3 Tone Sunburst 1961
Report inappropriate

Here’s an early narrow-necked, slab-board Jazzmaster with great tone and playability. One that may get overlooked among our many, this one is actually very nice, with classic Jazzmaster look and features and some minor wear. Its pickups both sound great, and its electronics are clean.


This Jazzmaster, like all of them, features a unique electronics system. Switchable between two completely different circuits via a toggle switch on the top horn, the top position is a warm rhythm setting, with rotary knobs to control volume and tone. The bottom, “lead,” position allows the pickups to be toggled with the three-way selector and controlled with the master volume and tone.


Summary


Body: Offset-waist alder with three-tone sunburst finish.


Neck: Maple neck with slab rosewood fingerboard, clay dot inlays. Narrow, shallow, tapered profile. Pencil neck date reads "1-61"


Pickups/Hardware: Two very clear and bright Jazzmaster pickups, tremolo, typical Jazzmaster electronics with 1960 potentiometers.


Setup/Playability: Medium action, responsive and smooth, with lower original frets.


Cosmetic Condition: Some wear around edges, assorted dings and dents on body. Little neck finish wear.


Modifications: None.


Weight: 7 lbs 15 oz
