Overview

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.

    Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    This is a great guitar with a wide range of tones that you can customize and change at a flip of the switch. I use this guitar to get sounds found in Rocket (pumpkins) or Ride (leave them all behind). The soap bar pick-ups are loud and clean, if your looking for distortion, you will need a proper tube amp. I used a 30w VOX. Marshall Haze does a great job too. Solid state amps do not exploit the tonal range of this guitar. Yes I would recommend this to a friend that plays alternative music, jazz, rock. I would not recommend it for a friend who plays grunge or heavy metal. I use one of my other guitars for that.

      Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

      This is my first JM, and that's after 50+ years playing. The Strats, Teles, and Les Pauls have kept me happy so I was hesitant to pick up a Jazzmaster. But I'm sorry that I waited so long.
      This model has been a constant list of surprises. First I put 10's on it and then did a set-up. Action came up perfect, very low with relatively little relief. Then I plugged it in and the second surprise was all of the incredible sounds that I was getting. I'm essentially a country-rock guy and this was delivering everything that I was looking for.
      Third, after breaking it in for an hour or so I gave it a detailed inspection. Fit & finish are flawless and the and the bound neck really add a finishing touch..
      So, I will still play all of my others, but this will definitely go into my rotation.

      And I just found the same thrill with a new P90 loaded SG, so I've got some catching u to do.

      By griffin

      from CT

      Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

      this guitars pickups are the worst they don't take distortion well at all and fuzz out I am an active musician and this will just not do for my type of work. If I could give this guitar less stars I would.
