Fender Japan Jazzmaster JM66-85 Vintage White 2000
Fender Jazzmaster, vintage white, crafted in Japan 1999-02. Oh boy, this one is a looker. The classic curves of the offset body are hit perfectly by the creamy non-catalog vintage white finish, and as always with white guitars, it looks all the better for some honest play wear. The tone delivers that classic JM-attack with buckets of clarity and sparkle; perfect for mixing with effects and crafting thick soundscapes. The neck feels nicely played in and the body is lively in the hands; it's a friendly thing in the hands. These are getting harder and harder to source, especially in the unusual hues, so if you've been waiting for the right one, here's you shot.
