The Fender American Vintage II 1966 Jazzmaster electric guitar celebrates the original model, which was advertised as an instrument 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 solidbody electric guitars, the futuristic and comfort-contoured offset design of the Jazzmaster was about as far from a boxy archtop as could 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.

The American Vintage II 1966 Jazzmaster features a comfortable C-shaped maple neck that plays like a dream, with a 7.25"-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and vintage tall frets. Characteristic of production in 1966, this guitar is offered with white neck binding, pearloid blocks and single-line “Fender Deluxe” tuners. The patented “floating” tremolo, adjustable bridge with threaded saddles and Pure Vintage ’66 Jazzmaster pickups, wired to the signature rhythm and lead circuits, deliver classic tone and authentic Fender feel. Comes with a vintage-style black case with an orange interior.

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.
