More about American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster®

La série American Vintage présente de toutes nouvelles déclinaisons de modèles originaux, qui viennent redonner vie à l'histoire et à l'héritage de Fender d'une manière authentique. Dotés de caractéristiques clés et de spécificités techniques incontournables, depuis les années 50 jusqu'au milieu des années 60, les nouveaux instruments de la série American Vintage s'ancrent profondément dans les racines de Fender. En perpétuant adroitement son inébranlable volonté de créer des guitares américaines novatrices, la marque Fender démontre clairement qu'en plus de savoir où elle va, elle n'oublie pas d'où elle vient.

La série American Vintage a pendant longtemps procuré à Fender ses meilleures ventes de guitares. Sa commercialisation, au début des années 80, était en fait l'un des signes avant-coureurs du retour fracassant de Fender, tandis que s'achevait le règne de CBS. Aujourd'hui, c'est non sans audace que Fender repart de zéro pour présenter une série American Vintage originale comportant de nouvelles caractéristiques et spécificités, ainsi que le plus haut niveau de précision vintage jamais atteint. Au lieu de purement et simplement remplacer nos anciens modèles, nous avons repensé le concept de la réédition vintage de A à Z, en restaurant les outils originaux, en élaborant de nouveaux micros, en retravaillant les couleurs vintage, et plus encore. Pour ne rien laisser au hasard, cette nouvelle aspiration est basée sur d'authentiques guitares vintage. Le contrat a été rempli, et pour preuve : chaque instrument American Vintage délivre une sonorité tout bonnement magique.

L'American Vintage ’65 Jazzmaster vous fait revivre cette décennie capitale pour la musique, alors que la surf music aux réverbérations outrancières s'essoufflait sérieusement, la Jazzmaster commençait son ascension qui allait faire d'elle, pendant dix ans, un incontournable pour les nouvelles générations de guitaristes iconoclastes. Elle avait également hérité d'ornements élégants, caractéristiques de l'année 1965, tels qu'une touche filetée en palissandre laminé, dotée de points de repère en nacre plus larges, ainsi que des potentiomètres de réglage blancs de type « witch hat » (« chapeau de sorcière »). Disponible en finitions trois tons Sunburst et Aztec Gold (édition limitée).

I got my Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster at Matt Umanov's guitar shop in NYC. I was lucky to get one with the 1 of 46 back plate too.

This guitar sounds so good its ridiculous, the quality and overall playability is awesome. You can play almost any genre of music with it, having a good time doing it and enjoying the looks of this awesome Leo Fender design.

The only problem with it is that in 1965 nobody was thrashing their guitars and probably a modern Jazzmaster will do that job better. The notes tend to choke when you play above the 12 fret. You can fix that by adjusting the action on the guitar, but you loose by doing that to.

The tone is epic, it drives beautifully and screams if you make her.

Watch out for this one, its a keeper.

Tonal versatility is great. Note that in fenders, the center pickup switch, increases the total output. its simple pickup 1 + pickup 2. But in more traditional guitars with 2 humbuckers, the center mode have the same output as one pickup alone.
in this case, its like you have one high output humbucker in middle mode . and if you dont like that, that Jazzmaster, Jaguar lead/rhythm Swithches are ready ! any output and gain you want ...

the only drawback is the bridge. In this model bridge angle is low. You cant pick hard with 9-42 gauges . but 10 wil do the job :)
and theses pickups. THESE are NOT simple single coils with their characteristics. They are something like P90s but with different Coiling pattern. They have warm and powerful sound. if I should find a suited humbucker, they sound like Alnico Pro 2 o pearly gates from SD or simple PAF pickups .
