Fender American Vintage II 1966 Jazzmaster 6-String Electric Guitar (Right-Handed, 3-Color Sunburst)

The Fender American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

Luxury Playing Experience

The Jazzmaster was originally advertised as a guitar that contained ‘all the well-known Fender developments,’ where ‘every convenience is provided.’ Intended to provide a luxury playing experience and tempt jazz guitarists into playing solid-body electric guitars, this futuristic and comfort-contoured offset is about as far from a boxy archtop as can be imagined. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the guitar failed to catch on with the jazz crowd, but instead gained early acceptance with ‘60s surf, and later, indie-rock, alternative, and even country players.

C-Shaped Maple Neck

The American Vintage II 1966 Jazzmaster features a comfortable C-shaped maple neck that plays like a dream with a 7.25-inch radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and vintage tall frets. Characteristic of production in 1966, this guitar is offered with white neck binding, pearl blocks, single-line ‘Fender Deluxe’ tuners, and matching painted headstock (on custom colors only). The patented ‘floating’ tremolo, adjustable bridge with threaded saddles, and Pure Vintage ‘66 Jazzmaster pickups, wired to the signature rhythm and lead circuits, deliver a classic tone and authentic Fender feel.

Fender Electrics in their Purest Form

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders- designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form- Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.

Vintage-Accurate Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

Nitrocellulose lacquer, as used on the ‘50s and ‘60s Fender instruments, is a premium finish that reveals the instrument’s true tonal character.

Alder Body

Alder has a well-balanced tone with beefy mids and a robust low-end.

7.25-Inch Radius Bound Round-Lam Rosewood Fingerboard with Blocks.

The 7.25-inch-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes.

Vintage-Accurate 1966 C-Shape Neck

In vintage years, the shape and thickness of Fender guitar necks varied tremendously. The American Vintage II Series offers a variety of authentic neck profiles from Fender’s past.

Pure Vintage ’66 Jazzmaster Pickups

Specially voiced to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years, Pure Vintage pickups are constructed just like pickups from Fender’s golden years. Materials include cloth-covered wire, fiber bobbins, and alnico magnets.

Vintage Style Hardware

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of American Vintage II hardware is manufactured to look, sound, and function just like it did on the originals. Much of the American Vintage II hardware is still manufactured on the original ‘50s and ‘60s era Fender factory machines.
