This Jazzmaster just arrived and absolutely slapped me upside the head! 

I've never seen one this clean.  I immediately noticed how great this particular Jazzmaster played.   Tim went through the guitar to get the specs he caught the radius, noticed it was off and alerted me.  Sure enough, the neck has a 12" radius.  I initially figured this was a refretted guitar with a re-radiused fretboard, but I showed it to some friends at the recent vintage guitar show and we all agreed that the frets look original, there is no "pull out" of the rosewood around the frets, and the fret ends look to be factory work.  If someone did do this work after it left the factory, they are a true artist.  

The result of this flatter radius is a feel like no other Jazzmaster can give you.  Imagine an SG feel on a 25.5" scale Fender.  It is fast and easy - feels amazing.  

The guitar is all original, including the shortened trem arm and even the original strap!  The pickguard has shrunken just slightly, not nearly as much as every other one I've seen.  The case is in amazing shape, mirroring the guitar.

Such a great collector or player's piece.  You'll love the way it feels!
