Fender’s original prototype instruments were fashioned from pine and now, with the 2017 Limited Edition American Vintage ’59 Pine Jazzmaster they’ve come full circle. This body wood began its functional life over 100 years ago, as part of the Globe Grain Elevator facility in Superior, Wisconsin, before it was reclaimed, cooked and fashioned into an instrument. The grain, knotholes and man-made imperfections make each one unique.
The 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Pine Jazzmaster is loaded with a pair of V-Mod single-coil Jazzmaster pickups, kicking out vintage-inspired tone while the new treble-bleed tone circuit retains high end clarity, no matter where the volume control is set. The improved tremolo and bridge incorporate a screw-in arm and brass Mustang saddles that stabilize the strings while enhancing your tone.
COOKED, RECLAIMED PINE BODY
This unique guitar is hand-crafted from 130-year-old pine reclaimed from the Globe Grain Elevator facility in Superior, Wisconsin, complete with original grain, knotholes and man-made imperfections. A lightweight wood, pine provides ringing sustain and a warm, round tone. “Cooking” is a thermal treatment that removes moisture, sweetens the tone and darkens the natural color of the wood.
Only one available.
