Another truly incredible remake of Fender's Jazzmaster from their golden age of guitars.
Introduced as Fender’s top-line guitar in 1958 and aimed squarely at jazz cats, the Jazzmaster® had instead found its way by 1965 into the hands of surf rock guitarists everywhere who made electrifying use of its sleek offset body, dual-tone circuits, and locking tremolo system. It acquired several new features in ’65, including pearl fingerboard dots instead of clay, a brown shell pickguard, white control knobs with chrome tops, and a thicker headstock decal.

The Time Machine 1965 Jazzmaster Relic® honors that magnificent model with original features and several slight modifications for modern players. The two-piece select alder body has a Relic lacquer finish; the sturdy rift-sawn maple neck has a comfortable “C” profile topped by a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with narrow-tall frets for smoothly effortless play. The special RSD J-Bridge has a steel base and brass saddles that deliver articulated tone with a strong primary note that lets the sound of the guitar ring through. Other features include hand-wound Jazzmaster pickups and vintage-style tuning machines. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity.
