Fender’s shrine to the heritage and legacy of those pioneers who made us what we are today. The Fender Custom Shop reached new heights of craftsmanship with its acclaimed Time Machine series—artfully “relic-ed” guitars and basses that revolutionised the entire concept of “reissue” instruments. The Custom Shop has since ventured even higher by crafting meticulous replicas “using the same techniques and tooling used to create the originals” all those years ago.
Designed expressly for jazzers (but adopted by surfers) and introduced in 1958, the Jazzmaster combined refined looks with a warm, mellifluous voice and new tremolo system. The 1959 Jazzmaster Rosewood Journeyman recreates this influential model that helped define new musical genres, with a few twists for contemporary players. The two-piece alder body sports the iconic offset curves designed for guitarists who usually played seated, and also wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a guitar that’s survived over five decades of playing. The tinted, riftsawn maple neck sports a period-accurate “ ’62 Jazzmaster”-shaped profile, while the rosewood fingerboard has been updated to 9.5”-radius and holds 21 6105 frets. Tied together with ultra-flexible, vintage-style Jazzmaster wiring—including the famous “lead/rhythm” circuit, complete with thumbwheel controls—the Hand-Wound Jazzmaster single-coil pickups sound mellow and fat; the model’s calling card.
Other features include a 1-ply Gold anodized pickguard, RSD J-Bridge with brass saddles for extra warmth, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
