1960 Fender Jazzmaster. An early custom color Blonde Jazzmaster formerly owned by Joe Bonamassa! This guitar features a resonant Ash body and plays great with a slimmer neck profile. All original with the exception of a well-done refret and a replaced nut. The original black-bottom pickups have a great sound with balanced output and a clear, lively tone. The neck pickup delivers a warm, thick, and open character, while the bridge pickup provides lots of surfy twang and attack. An awesome custom color offset! Includes original hardshell case

"Last week I went on and on about how amazing it was to be offering a 1957 Goldtop formerly owned by Joe Bonamassa, and here I am now tasked with describing another one of his former instruments. This week’s offering is a beautiful 1960 Jazzmaster in factory blonde, one of Fender’s most beloved custom colors. Apart from the inherent value of vintage Fender offsets, you can be sure that Joe only buys the very best in playability, sound, and originality. 

Once the black sheep of the company’s lineup, the Jazzmaster is now one of the most recognizable and desirable electric guitar designs out there and 1960 was certainly among the model’s premier years. The Brazilian rosewood slab fretboard is the hallmark of the last true iteration of Fender’s “golden era,” and provides a richness and response that simply cannot be mimicked with the later laminate boards. The ash body used on blonde-finished Fenders not only look better than the alder equivalent, but are notably lighter and more resonant, reminiscent of early Stratocasters from the first few model years of their production. This particular example is sporting a replaced bone nut and a very clean refret, but is otherwise completely untouched. Custom color vintage Fenders with celebrity provenance don’t come around every day, and this one will surely go fast."
