Originally marketed as a high-end guitar aimed squarely at jazz cats, the Jazzmaster instead charted its own unexpected course as a boldly original instrument. In the hands of surf, rock, punk/postpunk and alt/indie guitarists who preferred a more distinctive sound and style, it has endured as a creatively prized “other” stage-and studio preference ever since. The 1966 Jazzmaster Deluxe Closet Classic is a nod to one of the last great original Leo Fender-era designs of the mid 1960s. A hand-selected two-piece alder body wears a Deluxe Closet Classic lacquer finish for a slightly worn but well-taken-care-of look. The rift-sawn maple neck has a ’62-style Jazzmaster “C” profile, topped by a comfortable vintage compound-radius (7.25”-9.5”) round-lam rosewood fingerboard with pearl-dot position markers and 21 medium vintage frets.
Hand-wound vintage Jazzmaster pickups are wired to the model’s signature rhythm and lead circuits, with master volume, master tone and three-way switch. Other features include six-saddle vintage-style adjustable bridge with “floating” tremolo tailpiece, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with nylon spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
