This Custom Shop '62 Jazzmaster is a Limited Edition Paisley Jazzmaster that we had them paint Candy Apple Red - it includes both a paisley guard and the currently installed mint green guard (see pics of both). We love how it turned out - looks like something Johnny Marr might rock, no?
Created in 1968, paisley finishes were inspired by the San Francisco “Flower Power” movement and first appeared on the Telecaster®. To pay homage to this classic aesthetic, the artisans at the Dream Factory put their imaginations to work and created a pair of Paisley Jazzmaster guitars—one in classic Pink Paisley, and one in Black (here's where we changed ours to Candy Apple) both with a matching nitro-finished Paisley pickguard. The two-piece alder body wears a nitro lacquer finish that’s received a Journeyman Relic treatment (ours is a Closet Classic level relic), giving it the look and feel of a well-loved stage veteran. Sporting a comfortable “’62 Jazzmaster C”-shaped profile, the rift-sawn maple neck has a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 #6105 frets for a familiar playing feel.
Rich and throaty-sounding, the pair of hand-wound Jazzmaster pickups are connected with vintage-style wiring; we also kept the famous rhythm/lead circuit intact to ensure authentic tone and performance. For snappy tone and perfect intonation, we added an RSD Jazzmaster bridge, an upgraded touch that could only come from the Fender Custom Shop. Other features include vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
A fantastic guitar that'd make any Jazzmaster lover very happy. Priced with hardshell case.
