Fender Japan Jazzmaster JM66 in vintage white, made in Japan 2007-10. The Jazzmaster is a style-icon: sleek 60s curves, the best headstock going around around and a stellar list of players. This one, dressed in classic creamy white with a tort guard, looks extremely appealing. The neck is nice and slim, and combined with the always-balanced offset body, this is a supremely comfortable and accomodating player. The classic JM ‘ping’ and thick, juicy attack is all there; you’ve got a really solid base to mix up a colourful sonic masterpiece smattered with ambience and gain… nothing takes pedals like a Jazzmaster. You really can’t go too wrong here; this is a lovely guitar with attitude to burn.
