Fender Japan Jazzmaster JM66-85 Candy Apple Red 1998
Fender Jazzmaster, crafted in Japan, 1997-00. Candy apple always looks sweet on a JM; this one is surely a tasty example. The classic Jazzy 'plonk' is there in spades; this has a heap of natural attack and brightness and will certainly cut through a mix nicely even when low-key drowning in effects. The neck is a standard slim C profile, so it's easy to get along with and generally serves very well. There's not many better looking guitars around than a Jazzmaster, so nab yourself a bright red homie today.
