Fender Japan Jazzmaster JM66-85 Vintage White 2007
Fender Jazzmaster, vintage white, crafted in Japan 2006-8. No one is gonna want this, right? Just kidding, everyone wants a creamy white Jazzy. It's fair enough too: just look at it... what a gorgeous piece of equipment. The creamy vintage white finish has a few knocks and bumps to lend it some authenticity, and matched with the dark tort guard and the streaky rosewood board, it looks stupendous. The offset body is perfectly weighted and the neck is a very agreeable slim 60s C, so it's a very comfy guitar to play, plus we know how to set these up properly so it'll arrive playing nicely. The tone is great: heaps of ping and hi-fi crisp clarity, balanced by a warm and punchy attack. It's perfect smattered with gain and ambience, but it'll clean up nicely too. Heckn' Jazzmtastic.
