Fred Stuart's Unique 'Surf and Skateboard' Fender Jazzmaster
1999 Fender Surfin' Jazzmaster (Fred Stuart)
The epitome of a surfing guitar… this one-of-a-kind Jazzmaster weighs just 7.00 lbs. and has a contoured solid ash body. The top and back of the body is finished in Cadmium Yellow wash and then hand-painted with a 'Surf & Skateboard' theme using various shades of red, blue, green and white acrylic and then sealed with several coats of clear lacquer. One-piece 'uber-flamed' birds-eye 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 clay dot position markers. Large headstock 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 metal spacer. On the back of the headstock is Fred Stuart's Fender Custom Shop decal and the serial number in black. The neck is stamped "4 JUN 99C" and the neck pocket and underneath the four-bolt neck plate both have "RELIC" stamped in blind. The heel of the neck is signed in pencil by Fred Stuart. Individual 'no-line' Kluson Deluxe style tuners with oval metal buttons. Four-bolt Fender "Custom Shop USA" neck plate. Two grey-bottom Jazzmaster pickups with outputs of 7.99k and 7.87k. Clear plexiglass pickguard with thirteen screws, also hand painted by Fred Stuart (on the underside) to match the acrylic design on the top. Two controls (master volume, master tone) plus three-way pickup selector switch and jack socket on the treble side of the pickguard. Transparent red plastic 'Stratocaster' style control knobs. Jazzmaster bridge with six individually adjustable saddles and integrated Jazzmaster tailpiece and tremolo. Complete with the original tremolo arm with matching transparent red tip and the original bridge cover. This wonderfully light and unique piece of musical art is in near mint condition with just some very light finish checking. Housed in the original 'Road Runner' three-latch, rectangular black hardshell case with gray plush lining (9.25). (#1931).
