Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '58 Jazzmaster Proto Closet Classic Faded 2-Tone Sunburst With Case
The Fender 1958 Closet Classic Jazzmaster is a stunning guitar that was made to give off the vibe of an original model left in storage for many, many years. Designed with a period correct build and hardware but with some modern tweaks that give it the versatility that the original model never had.
Classic '58 Design
Looking back at the original 1958 Jazzmaster you had a lot of innovative pieces of tech for the time. Not only did it incorporate multiple switches for different tones instead of the standard 3 way switches on other guitars. But it also introduced us to the now iconic Fender floating tremolo that foud its way on to a few different Fender Alternative guitars throughout the years.
The body has been made out of Lightweight Ash making it easier to play for longer periods of time while the neck is built from Quatersawn Maple and Rosewood. One of the more interesting parts of the neck is that it is actually built off of the 1962 spec 'C' profile with a 9.5"" radius rather than the original '58 design.
Classic Electronics Remade
One of the issues with some older guitars like this came from excess noise. Overwound single coil pickups and 50's technology made them a bit of a pain to work with at times. So even though it is using hand wired pickups based on some Jazzmaster guitars from this era they have managed to minimise noise, hum and other issues.
The Fender Custom Shop honors the debut year of the sleekly subversive Jazzmaster with the splendid Limited Edition 1958 Relic Jazzmaster. Its lightweight ash body features a vintage-style lacquer finish and a gold anodized pickguard. Dual hand wound Jazzmaster pickups deliver full-voiced sound and tonal versatility with five-way switching and modern wiring.
Other premium features include a tinted quartersawn maple neck with 1962 Jazzmaster ""C""-shaped profile, 9.5""-radius rosewood fingerboard with 6105 frets and bone nut, Custom Shop RSD bridge, vintage Fender-logo tuners and more. Includes Custom Shop Limited neck plate, case and certificate of authenticity. Available in Faded Two-Color Sunburst and Desert Sand.
