Fender Custom Shop

We have a deep love for Jazzmasters here at Truetone Music, so it made our day when we got to play an outstanding example like this 1959 Jazzmaster from Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder Dennis Galuszka.  The body is made of reclaimed Redwood from the Santa Cruz boardwalk - this is a truly unique, one of a kind build. 

This Jazzmaster also features a roasted maple neck (quartersawn) that matches the body perfectly, with a AAA rosewood fretboard.  It's a stunning guitar.  At only 7.6 pounds, it's one of the lighter Jazzmasters we've had.

It's not all about the aesthetics though - this is an amazing sounding guitar.  Featuring two Josefina Campos hand wound pickups, it can have that raunchy, growly and aggressive tone when needed, but with enough woodiness that it never sounds harsh.  In all pickup positions, the high notes have a clear, pure, crystalline quality that is reminiscent of Tom Verlaine's tone on Television's Marquis Moon.  Full chords also have incredible jangle and sparkle. The midrange has plenty of bite in the bridge position, and it has a broader, throatier quality in the neck position. The lows sound defined and woody in both positions, and the neck pickup has satisfying oomph.

We personally picked the wood out with Dennis Galuszka while at the Fender Custom Shop in Corona.  A year later, this magical Jazzmaster landed at Truetone Music, and now it can be yours.
