Appealing to fans of '60s-style Jazzmasters, the Fender Vintera '60s Jazzmaster solidbody electric guitar delivers vibrant, wide-ranging tone that transcends specific musical styles. Loaded with a pair of Vintage-Style '60s single-coil pickups, you'll have access to the full sonic range offered by the Jazzmaster's iconic rhythm/lead switching configuration. Fender's classic floating vibrato is here to add sweetly subtle warbles and bends. And the maple neck with mid-'60s "C" profile offers the stout-yet-fluid playability Jazzmaster fans love. Complete with a four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard, the Fender Vintera '60s Jazzmaster packs everything you love about Fender's distinctive offset guitars.
Fender equips the Vintera '60s Jazzmaster with a pair of Vintage-Style '60s single-coil pickups for that iconic Jazzmaster tone beloved by so many guitarists at Music Experience. Fender voiced these pickups to respond to your playing like the originals. The smooth and velvety sound of the neck pickup is nicely balanced by the edgy, bright bridge pickup. You'll be amazed at the balance of rich lows, detailed mids, and sparkling highs, especially with both pickups engaged. It's one of the reasons you'll hear Jazzmasters in so many instrumental hits from the '60s — the tone is rich, balanced, and defined, the perfect foundation for many different musical styles.
The Fender Vintera '60s Jazzmaster is a treat to play, largely because of its vintage-style neck profile. This is a pleasantly stout neck, and its increased mass yields an incredibly natural feel, as well as excellent sustain. And wait until you experience the fast-playing pau ferro fretboard with medium-jumbo frets — bending notes and playing chords high on the neck have never been easier.

Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the warm, smooth sound that made the Jazzmaster a legend.
