Snappy, vivacious tone from dual American Vintage single-coil pickups

Fender equips the '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer with a pair of American Vintage '65 single-coil pickups, and you'll be amazed at the balance of bark and bite you'll hear from your amplifier. 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. So while the '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer is a natural choice for reverb-drenched surf rock, it's a workhorse guitar with versatile tone.

Offset waist gives this guitar exceptional balance

While it has a huge tonal range, many players love the Fender Jazzmaster simply because it feels great to wear and play, even for hours onstage. The offset waist on the '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer looks undeniably cool, but it also enhances the overall balance of the instrument. Whether you're playing sitting down or standing up, the Jazzmaster is one of the more comfortable guitars you'll find.

Classic Jazzmaster switching for exceptional tone shaping

"Lead" and "Rhythm" tone circuits with individual tone controls give the '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer incredible flexibility. It's surprising that many of the most iconic Jazzmaster players often ignored the versatile switching options, but there's a whole world of tone to discover here. Between the wide tonal range of the '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer, your guitar amplifier, and your pedalboard, it's easy to sculpt your own unique tone.

Surf Green Jazzmaster

A few years back I had a CIJ Jazzmaster with a Seymour Duncan custom humbucker in the bridge. It looked like a normal Jazzy but when you pulled up on the tone knob. Wow, instant humbucker tones. I wanted to replace that guitar ever since it got away. So when these came out that was the plan. SO after it arrived I plugged it in and gave it a test drive. Some have said that the pickups are bright on this unit. but I think they sound "vintagey" and just perfect. I play mostly oldies, and some country mixed with punk. (Cowpunk as it is called) Now I do not think I will be changing anything on this guitar. First, right out of the box it was ready to play. (I mean apart from tuning) Action was nice and low. Set up as spot on. And intonation was on the right side of acceptable. Ready to go. I think the folks at Sweetwater should get the credit for the set up. Not sure how Fender sends them out the door. So I plugged into a Fender Rock Pro AMP. I was amazed at the playability. The smaller vintage style frets felt good. I have been playing Gibson/Epiphone products lately and this felt like coming home. Neck was easy and fast. Trem did its job with no worries. I went through my set list from Johnny B Good. to Munsters Theme, to Ramones and Old 97's and did this with all of the many many many settings. I think if you want a well rounded guitar that can do almost any thing music wise this is the one. Cosmetics on this guitar were outstanding. It looks SOOOOO much better in person than in any picture I have seen. The aged look on the neck really goes great with the body color. It really is a looker. Fit and finish were excellent better than you might expect for a MIM Fender. I was delighted. SO Great set up right out of the box. Many tones from awesome pickups. Looks like a well crafted million bucks. Comes with a great looking case. Now the other side of the coin. I really don't have many things here. When plugged into my Marshall AMP there was a lot of HUMMMM, But really not much more than any Strat or Tele might have. Plus when you start playing you can't hear the hum anyway. Such is the plot of a single coil. I also had a string pop out of a saddle a time or two, but nothing that NOT playing Rockaway Beach at 120 BPM wouldn't cure. So in other words don't beat on it. But if you are buying a Jazzmaster to play punk and metal, you might could want to rethink that decision. As noted in other reviews it did smell like wet paint when I first opened the case, but this only took a day to go away. Summary, for the money you get way more than you paid for. Just make sure it is what you want. You won't be sorry. Also Sweetwater has the best financing deal on the interwebs.
Music background: Amatuer musician who plays out once in awhile but mostly for my own enjoyment.

Mexico Custom Shop?

This is a fine guitar. Sadly, I like it better than my American Custom Ship Jazzmaster. The finish is excellent. Tone is classic. The play and set up are perfect. One of my problems with old Fenders is the low, vintage frets. Bends can be tough. The vintage frets on this are not too low. The neck has a perfect combo of easy, low playability, with bendability. Congrats to the Mexican craftsmen who made this. As always, Sweetwater is the only company I fully trust on every deal.

Much Much More Than a MIM Fender

Jazzmasters are by far my favorite guitars. For years, owning one seemed more like something to do as a mid-life crisis in thirty years. I knew there were lower end models out there, but I didn't want to mess around with anything that wasn't the real deal. Then I found this one. At first I was put off because it was made in Mexico. Then after a bit more research, I learned just how well these particular guitars are actually made. Not to mention the American Vintage '65 pickups. I started looking up reviews and demos online and realized I had to have it. I did read that it had bridge issues (common for JM/Jag), and the pickups were a little bright. These things were mentioned so often that I had already made plans to buy a mustang or Mastery bridge and pure nickel strings for it. When I plugged this thing in for the first time, I heard nothing but amazing surf jangle on the highs. warm and creamy low end, and punchy mids to round it all out. I don't find the pups bright at all. If you're looking for something a little less sharp, I'd say stick to a Strat. As notorious as the bridge issues are, I don't really find it to be a huge problem. A string will slip out of it's saddle maybe once every couple of hours of nonstop playing. And that's with 1.20 mm picks and heavy hands. It's really not difficult to just tuck it back in and keep playing. Anyway, the tones you can get out of this thing are really infinite. It holds a tune remarkably well. Also, I really like to look at it and if I could afford it, I would definitely buy another one for the sole purpose of looking at what beautiful and incredible instrument this is.


This is one beautiful guitar. The finish is perfect. Playability is great. Pickups sound good to me, from smooth jazzy to twang and surf. I have owned other Mexican Fenders, but this guitar is definitely a step above. Its on par with my American Standard Fenders. Not quite equal, but pretty darn close. Its a keeper and a nice addition to the "herd".

I've been looking for an affordable Fender Surf Green guitar for a long time, and this one knocked it out of the park! The vintage style and feel of this '60s Jazzmaster Lacquer fit my aesthetic perfectly. The pickups give me everything I need, from big warm low end to punchy mids and pronounced highs. I also love the feel of the neck, which plays fast and is easy on my hand, so I don't get fatigued during longer sessions.
