This Fender Jazzmaster was made in 1963 and apart from the recent fret job, it's pretty much all-original. (The original bridge cover went missing years ago.) The finish shows signs of wear here and there, but overall it looks good. The finish on the back of the neck is mostly worn away up to the 7th fret and some of the headstock decal has chipped. The pickgaurd is slightly warped, as is common on many Fenders from this era.The previous owner had this guitar refretted about 15 years ago and whoever did the work cut through the fretboard into the neck in a few places, a sadly not uncommon situation. As the frets were worn, we refretted the guitar and now plays like new. In photo #8 you might notice the extension of the black finish toward the tailpiece which would indicate some amount of overspray. We also see evidence of this under the black light and while it's unclear why the finish touch up was done, it was done nonetheless. Includes the original case and whammy bar.
