Cosmetic Condition: Boy oh boy is this one tasty Jazzmaster! The original Lake PLacid Blue over Candy Apple Red can be seen along the finish chipping of the neck pocket, giving a little glimpse into this guitar's history. The body is well worn, with great checking lines taking center stage amongst a smattering of light dings, dents and scratches. The sides prove most worn, with a higher concentration of dings and chips to be found. The neck feels nice and smooth, with a bit of finish wear adding a nice contrast along the maple. The headstock has plenty of dings, edge wear, scratches and finish loss, adding to the the vintage vibes emanating from this '66. This Jazzmaster is only improving with age!

Playability: Plays well with low action. The frets are wide and low with play wear..

The original tuners have been reinstalled, but the tuner grommets are not original. The tuner shaft holes have been dowelled and re-drilled. The trem arm is missing.
