This wonderful surfing guitar weighs just 8.10 lbs. and has a contoured solid alder body. One-piece maple neck with a nut width of between 1 5/8 and 1 11/16 inches, a scale length of 25 1/2 inches and a very comfortable medium profile rising from 0.82 inches behind the first fret to 0.97 inches behind the twelfth fret. 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" 'transition' logo in gold with black trim, "Jazzmaster" in black beside it, and "With Synchronized Floating Tremolo" and the last two of four patent numbers in black below. "Offset Contour Body Pat. Pending" decal at the ball end of the headstock. Single "butterfly" string tree with 'large' nylon spacer. The neck is stamped "4 JUN 65B". Individual double-line Kluson Deluxe tuners with oval metal buttons, each stamped on the underside "D-169400 / Patent No." Four-bolt neck plate with "L" serial number between the top two screws. Two grey-bottom Jazzmaster pickups with outputs of 7.88k and 8.12k. The potentiometers are stamped "137 6451" and "137 6519" (CTS December 1964 and May 1965). Three-layer white over black plastic 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 marks on the back and sides of the body. There is some very slight touch-up on the edges of the headstock face, most prominent around the low 'E' tuner bushing and the first two patent numbers of the decal have worn away. There are are few slight and very small small indentations on the back of the neck - most likely from the use of a capo. There is very little fret-wear and almost no wear to the fretboard. This fifty-three year old Jazzmaster is still in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. 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, original black leather guitar strap, an original? gray guitar cord, and even the original twelve page Fender Jazzmaster Instruction Manual/Hang Tag with matching serial number and price of $250! .
