1966 Fender Jazzmaster Candy Apple Red Metallic


This late 1965/early 1966 Fender Jazzmaster in original Candy Apple Red Metallic finish may be the best mid 60s Jazzmaster I've ever played. It's a comfortable weight (8 lbs even, has low miles on the original wide frets, has an unfaded original custom color finish, and great sounding Jazzmaster pickups. Check out the video below where Riggs tests the set up extensively with a heavy right hand and some nice overdrive and fuzz. 

Measurements: 8.0 lbs / 3.7 kg total weight. The neck measures 1.66" / 42.16mm wide at the nut, 0.90" deep at the first fret, and 0.94" deep at the 12th fret. The neck pickup reads 6.57k ohms and the bridge pickup reads 6.75k ohms. The neck heel date reads "4NOV65B". The potentiometer codes indicate the 51th week of 1964.

Originality: All finish, parts, and solder are original to this Jazzmaster except for one replaced 6th string tuner (single line Kluson from the early 1960s).

Playability: Excellent. The neck is dead straight, truss rod functions as intended, frets have very little wear, and the electronics are clean and operate as intended.

Condition: Excellent! A little case rash on the lower side by the output jack and light checking on top horn, neck heel, and hedstock. Apart from that, it's clean with typical nicks, dings, and scratches. 

Included: The original case is included.

Fine Print: All guitars ship via FedEx Priority Overnight for domestic sales or FedEx Priority International. I offer a 48 hour approval period beginning on delivery for all sales during which you are welcome to opt for a return as long as the guitar is still in as-sent condition. I do not charge a restocking fee, but any non-refunded payment processing fees, outbound shipping, and return shipping costs are subtracted from the refund in the case of a return.
