Fender Custom Shop "Rudy's 1962 Jazzmaster" Lake Placid Blue Custom Color
Now, we're partnering with the Fender Custom Shop to recreate the glory of that guitar, as well as a whole series of the vintage Fender guitars we know and love, combining modern playability with vintage vibe, and trying to recreate these guitars as they would have left the factory in their original production year.
Continuing our love affair with offsets, our perfect world Jazzmaster: a Custom Color (Lake Placid Blue), early 60's Jazzmaster with a matching headstock, is meant to be a modern fusion of vintage style/sound with modern accessibility:
- 9.5" radius with 6105 Narrow Tall fretwire
-"Slab" rosewood fretboard
-Vintage Kluson style tuners (Gold)
-Vintage style Jazzmaster tremolo (Gold)
-60's style Custom Shop hand-wound Jazzmaster pickups.
-1.65 Inch Nut width
The neck is an extremely comfortable "C" shape.
Fans of vintage Fenders might notice one thing: the stark white maple neck, which we're used to seeing in it's aged amber form, but we've had this guitar recreated here as if you've just bought a new Fender for the first time in 1962, brand new to you. Imagine what it must have been like taking home your brand new Fender Jazzmaster for the first time in the 1960's, having no idea what to expect. That's the feeling we're trying to capture.
