Vintage 1965 Jazzmaster Style

For the guitarist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year guitars built with meticulous attention to accurate detail that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.

Built using original tooling and based on actual 1965 models we tracked down, the U.S.-made American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster takes you back to the middle of that musically momentous decade, when the reverb-drenched surf had largely receded and the Jazzmaster acquired elegant new design features and began its long, steady ascent toward must-have status for subversive new generations of alternative guitarists in the decades to come.

Flash-Coat Lacquer Finish
Flash-Coat Lacquer Finish

The term flash-coat lacquer refers specifically to the quickly applied thin and final “flash” of topcoat lacquer applied to most American Vintage instruments. The composition and method of application for this finish layer lets an instrument “breathe” with a more natural resonance, and imparts a more authentically vintage appearance.

Newly Voiced American Vintage Pickups
Newly Voiced American Vintage Pickups

American Vintage instruments feature specially voiced pickups meticulously researched and crafted to reproduce the authentic design, voice and performance of specific instruments from individual model years in the 1950, ’60s and ’70s. Their superior sound and style is one of the defining hallmarks of the American Vintage series.

Bone Nut
Bone Nut

A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, not to mention being an authentic original-era Fender design element. Many players consider bone string nuts more “organic” sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts made using synthetic materials.

“Round-Lam” Rosewood Fingerboard
“Round-Lam” Rosewood Fingerboard

Fender introduced “round-lam” (short for round-laminated) rosewood fingerboards in the early 1960s as a new method of attaching smooth-playing and attractive rosewood fingerboards—in a thin, rounded veneer-like form—to sturdy maple necks. In look, sound and feel, it’s a classic Fender design element still widely used today on many contemporary and vintage-style instruments.

Bound Fingerboard
Bound Fingerboard

The elegantly sophisticated look of a bound fingerboard dates to the great Fender instruments from the mid-’60s to the mid-’70s, and is reproduced here in carefully crafted detail.

Period-Correct Cases and Ephemera
Period-Correct Cases and Ephemera

American Vintage instruments are complemented by cases that are every bit as vintage-authentic as the guitars and basses they so stylishly contain, accompanied by a fascinating wealth of in-case reproduction extras and accessories, such as straps, cables, polishing cloths, wiring kits, bridge covers, owner’s manuals and more.
