The '65 Jazzmaster Is Back!

With your hands on the Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster solidbody electric guitar, you'll understand why 1965 was such a special year for this iconic guitar. Fender based the American Vintage Series on actual vintage guitars from their past, to bring you a period-correct '65 Jazzmaster that plays like a modern classic. The American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster is built just like an original - you get an alder body, a '60s C-shaped maple neck, a laminated-rosewood fingerboard, and vintage-style appointments throughout. And with a duo of specially-voiced American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster single-coil pickups, your favorite amplifier will love the Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster as much as you do.

American Vintage Series means period-accurate details

Fender spared no expense in creating the American Vintage Series, and you'll see it in the American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster. To make it as vintage-accurate as possible, Fender restored original tooling dies, voiced new pickups, and even reformulated vintage finishes based on actual vintage examples. The result is a guitar that not only looks accurate - it feels like you're playing a well-worn-in classic that's been waiting to be re-discovered.

Beauty, tone, and playability

With Fender's American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster, there's genius in the details. This beloved guitar's beauty, tone, and playability are no accident. It starts with the lightweight alder body, the classic 3-ply white pickguard, and a thin Fender Flash Coat nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Then, there's the highly playable C-profile maple neck with its round-laminated rosewood fingerboard and 21 vintage-style frets, unique sounding single-coil pickups, floating tremolo with lock button, intricate switching system, and more. If you're a fan of '60s Jazzmasters, the Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster is one drool-worthy axe.

Vintage-style pickups provide classic tone

Fender wouldn't rest until the American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster sounded as vintage as it looks, so they got to work developing a special set of pickups specifically for the American Vintage Series. This Jazz packs a duo of American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster single-coil pickups, specially wound to period-correct specs and tone. You get the same tonal versatility that made the Jazzmaster the legend it is today.

Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • American Vintage Series Jazzmaster, based on the design of original 1965 Jazz
  • Vintage-style Flash Coat Lacquer finish is thinner than modern finishes, allowing the alder body to "breathe" and enhance tonally as it ages
  • Mid '60s C-shaped neck plays fast
  • Two specially-voiced American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster single-coil pickups are wound to match the sound and specs of original '60s pickups
