All your offset dreams have finally come true!
Behold! Here's the new NAMM Custom Shop '66 Reissue Jazzmaster in stunning custom color Charcoal Frost Metallic! True to form, this Jazzmaster has all of the great period features a vintage Fender fan would want to see, combined with some modern sensibilities that maximize the player experience.
It's hard to imagine anyone but Fender Custom Shop executing such a convincing custom color finish, and its more evident than ever in this guitar. The Closet Classic finish accurately represents some of the finest "under-the-bed" vintage examples, with light aging, finish checking, and yellowing throughout. The aesthetic is tied together perfectly with a great tortoiseshell pickguard, bound fingerboard, and matching headstock, showcasing all the great visual qualities of a mid 60s offset.
Sonically, it's everything you'd expect a great Jazzmaster to be. The handwound pickups are voiced perfectly, with beautiful harmonic bloom and compression that offers up great dynamic range suitable for all genres. You'll hear bold, snappy low end response and chimey top end that excels both clean and with gain.
This is hands-down one of the coolest Custom Shop Fenders we've ever had. If you have your mind set on a custom color Jazzmaster with custom shop quality and tone, this might very well be the one for you.
Price includes original G&G hardshell case, COA, and case candy.
