    Alright folks - the purge of all my non-vintage guitars is happening. Here is one of the BEST modern Jazzmasters you can get your hands on. It plays better than my '65 or '66 and has been my main recording guitar over the last 8 months. Other than that it has never been gigged. It's setup better than any Jazzmaster I have ever played with the Mastery bridge resting flat on the body. Plays like butter. Resonant as anything you've ever strummed. I've got way over 2k in this, and I am confident this will blow any custom shop Fender out of the water. It's super light weight and sounds fantastic. I've owned several new and vintage JM's, and this is among the best of the best (beat my AV65 out). I really can't overstate how upset I am to be moving it, but I am after my dream vintage guitar and everything that is non-essential must go... It was put together and tweaked by my very talented guitar tech who knows JM's like the back of his hand. I'll let the specs do the talking...

    Neck: (Around $700.00)The neck is STELLAR. Super flamey and nice and fat, unlike most Jazzmaster necks. Its been finished by MJT. Feels and looks beautiful.
    The specs:
    ORIENTATION: Right for Right Handed Players
    SCALE LENGTH: 25.5 Standard Fender
    NUMBER OF FRETS: 21 Fret
    NUT WIDTH: 1.650 (41.91mm)
    HEEL WIDTH: 2-3/16 (55.56mm) Standard Fender
    TUNER HOLE SIZE: 11/32 Vintage Kluson
    TRUSS ROD TYPE: Single Acting Adjust at the Heel
    FB RADIUS: 9-1/2
    12TH DOT SPACING: Narrow (Post 1964)
    NUT SLOT STYLE: 1/8 Standard Fender Flat Bottom Style
    SHAFT WOOD: Flame Maple Premium 4A $80
    FB WOOD: Flame Maple 3A + $20
    FB STYLE: Slab Standard Fender
    TOP DOTS: None Use Custom Inlay Selected Below
    CUSTOM INLAY: Black Block + $90
    SIDE DOTS: White 2mm
    SIDE DOT LOC: Centered on Finger Board Wood
    FRET WIRE SIZE: 6105 Medium Nickel Silver
    FB EDGES: Semi Rolled Standard
    BACK PROFILE: Chunky C 90 99
    BINDING: Black Binding + $90
    FINISH: Raw (No Warranty)
    FB FINISH: Raw (I will apply my own)
    MOUNTING HOLES: Drill Holes Standard Fender Pattern
    NUT INSTALLATION: Do Not install a Nut

    Body: (Around $500.00)
    The body is swamp ash. It sounds amazing with the maple neck. It's a little more "tele" than my other Jazzmasters. I found this body from Guitar Mill. Its super accurate AND incredibly light at 3 pound, 2 ounces. MJT did a wonderfully tasteful black all nitro finish that is lightly aged. The body is super, super resonant.

    Electronics: (Around $400.00)
    Rothstein Wiring Harness
    Pickup Wizard Vintage Style Pickups

    Bridge: (Around $200.00) Mastery. The best of the best!

    Tremolo: (Around $200.00)Pre-CBS Fender. No arm, though any American arm would fit.

    Plastics: ($100.00)
    NOS 70's witch hat knobs
    Spitfire Pickguard

    Tuners:
    This has a set of ultra rare Grover tuners on it that appeared on some Fender coronados and Jazzmasters during the 60's. They work so much better than the F style tuners or even the Klusons of the period... I searched for a set of these for years. I paid nearly $200.00 for these. They rock and look insane.

    No case, but I'm experienced packing guitars and have even sent a '62 JM with no case...

    Price is $1,500 PPG, Free shipping CONUS ONLY! Local pickup in Chicago, IL.
