Leo's Favorite Custom Color
1963 Fender Jazzmaster Candy Apple Red with Matching Headstock
This wonderful surfing guitar weighs just 8.00 lbs. and has a contoured solid alder body. One-piece maple neck with a nut width of just over 1 5/8 inches, a scale length of 25 1/2 inches and a very comfortable medium-to-thick profile. Rosewood veneer fretboard with 21 original medium-to-thin frets and inlaid pearl dot position markers. Large headstock with matching Candy Apple Red finish and decal with "Fender" 'spaghetti' logo in gold with black trim, "Jazzmaster" in black beside it, and "With Synchronized Floating Tremolo" and four patent numbers and one design number in black in two lines below it. "Offset Contour Body Pat. Pending" decal at the ball end of the headstock. Single "butterfly" string tree with nylon spacer. The neck is stamped "4 DEC 63B" and the neck pocket has "12-63" written in black ink. Individual single-line Kluson Deluxe tuners with oval metal buttons (stamped on the underside "D-169400 / Patent No." Four-bolt neck plate with serial number between the top two screws. Two grey-bottom Jazzmaster pickups with outputs of 7.93k and 8.15k. The potentiometers are stamped "137 6410" and "304 6421" (CTS March 1964 and Stackpole May 1964). Four-layer (tortoiseshell over white & black) celluloid pickguard with thirteen screws. Two controls (master volume, master tone) plus three-way pickup selector switch and jack socket on the treble side of the pickguard, two roller knobs (volume, tone) plus two-way circuit selector (rhythm/lead) slide switch on the bass side of the pickguard. White plastic "Witch Hat" knobs with metal tops. Jazzmaster bridge and integrated tailpiece and tremolo. There are a few small surface chips on the treble edge and the back of the body. Otherwise this fifty-three year old Jazzmaster is as near mint (9.25) condition as one could wish for. The Candy Apple Red (over Silver) is as fresh as it was when it left the factory. Complete with the original tremolo arm, bridge cover and even the original twelve page Fender Jazzmaster Instruction Manual/Hang Tag. Housed in the original Fender three-latch rectangular tan hardshell case with brown leather ends and dark orange plush lining (9.00). This actual guitar appears in Werner's List on p. 37 "L27974 J-Master CAR". (#1934)
