Fender Jazzmaster '66 reissue, vintage white, crafted in Japan 97-00. The world has many sunburst JMs, but vintage white... that's something different! The only thing better than crisp vintage white is aged vintage white, and this one has plenty of natural wear to lend it extra mojo. It seriously looks so good. Playing-wise, the slim and sturdy neck is in great shape and doesn't make you work hard, combined with the perfectly balanced body, this sits in the hands nicely indeed. The handy JM dual circuitry allows you to dial in a bunch of different tones, from thick and swampy to short and sparkly. It's at it's best swimming in gain and reverb, there's nothing like a JM as a base to build enormous effect-laden soundscapes on. Certified cool guitar.

Cosmetic condition notes: moderate finish wear. The most obvious thing is some uneven fading in the lacquer from since-removed stickers. There's some aging on the machine heads and bridge to a smoky look, but they're all functioning fine. Plastics have yellowed a fair bit, and there's scratches on the guard. There's a few dings and chips on the back, the worst of them is on the bottom 10cm or so below the rear strap pin. Pre-loved with scars to show it, but really nothing major. Overall: good condition
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electrics tested and working properly. Recently been through a Topshelf setup with fresh 11-gauge strings. Playing with majesty!
