OVERVIEW

A desirable vintage of the stylish classic with its improved neck and period features.

The Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar takes you back to the middle of that musically momentous decade, when the reverb-drenched surf had largely receded and the Jazzmaster began its steady decade-long ascent toward alternative indispensability for subversive new generations of iconoclastic guitarists. It had also acquired some elegant new design features by 1965, such as a bound round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays, and distinctive white "witch hat" control knobs.

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-'80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, they've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept-restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more-based on actual vintage guitars. Includes case.

  • An authentic recreation of the classic model
  • Lighweight alder body
  • Mid '60s C-shaped neck profile
  • Bound round-laminated rosewood fingerboard
  • Vintage accurate pickups wound to period-correct specs and sound

    Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    This ia a beautiful guitar, but it is not for everyone. It is perfect for every kind of nuanced clean sound, from Jazz to Country to instrumental guitar like Surf. It is also great for Blues and overdriven sounds. But do not try full distorted Rock or Metal with this. This guitar is not made for heavy distortion. Yes, the bridge is vintage accurate, so it is trouble. I had my guitar tech tweak it, and no more problems. With that, I highly recommend this beauty. Thank you, Fender, for making this one.

    Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    This is a great fender guitar, It has all the quality you would expect from an american fender. The one weak point of this guitar, or any jazzmaster, is the bridge. Many jazzmasters today have a tun o matic style bridge, but the traditional jazzmaster bridge is a pain in the butt. I can't list in detail every issue i have with it but it pretty much falls apart as you play it. I had to scan my floor for the springs and screws that hold the saddles on. It has been recomded to me to replace he stock saddles with mustang saddles. Love my jazzmaster 99.9% just need to get rid of the poopoo saddles. Don't let my opinion of the bridge/saddles discourage you from buying a '65 jazzmaster RI, just buy some mustang saddles to go with.
