Fender Custom Shop 1959 Jazzmaster Journeyman Relic Electric-Guitar - Oxblood
Created as deluxe version of the strat and introduced in 1958, the Jazzmaster combined refined looks with a warm, brilliant voice and a unique tremolo system. It's changed a fair bit over the years. Originally intended for Jazz players this model has been adopted by surf rockers and indie rock maestros. However, the 1959 is still considered to be the standard by which all other Jazzmasters are judged. This one keeps all the perks of the original while adding a few twists that modern players have asked for.
This guitar sports a Journeyman's Relic that recreates that great broken in feel of an instrument that's been on the road for decades. Additionally, it possesses a light two piece offset Alder body to keep those shoulder pains at bay during long playing sessions. The Custom Shop sorted for the lightest body to ensure this.
