This is my second Vintage guitar

owner: Dra Wrappin'

I have been looking for a slab board Jazzmaster for a long time.

I imported it directly from a music store in New York.

It is believed to be made in 1960. Neck date is 1960, with a few internal parts here and there from '59. Body date is painted over and not visible. The toggle switch is cream-colored. It is a mystery why it is not amber. It may have been replaced.

Original pickups are very healthy. The repairman who repaired this guitar said "This guitar has the highest output of all the Vintage Jazzmasters I've ever seen. It's a very energetic guitar.

The fingerboard was in bad condition, so I had the repairman polish it. It's a slab board, so I don't mind so much, and it's in pretty good condition.

The case was original from the 1950s, but it was so beat up that I bought a current case.

◎Paint... probably refinish.
Not sure of the original color.
It is not even left on the neck pocket.
It's a blood color, like SG.

◎Refret, re-nut and other adjustments were made by repairman.

◎Pickups...The front pickups are fat and sounded like a single pickup. The front pickups are fat and sounded like a single pickup.
Rear is sharp.
I like the sound of the center.

D'Addario 011-049

◎Bridge...Original bridge

There is no string drop at all. Picking is strong and sharp, but no string drop.
