Here’s the 62 veneer board 100% original Daphne with tort that bterry was referring to ...bterry wrote: ↑Tue Jun 23, 2020 7:58 pmNice! Sherwood Green is so rare, lovely color.fuzzjunkie wrote: ↑Tue Jun 23, 2020 7:59 amFiesta Red does seem to be the most popular color for this scenario. I have seen a number of Olympic Whites and one Blonde.
The only original custom color Fender guitars that I have personally seen that had tortoise shell pick guards that were not Olympics were 2 Fiesta Red pre-1962 Jazzmasters, a 1962 Black Jazzmaster, and a Sherwood Green 1961 Jazzmaster that's owned by a close friend. He’s had it since the early 90s.
-None had matching headstocks, which is also a pre-1962 trait.
All the custom color Jaguars that I have seen that had tortoise pick guards were refinished. A 1963 Surf Green Jaguar that I owned. A 1963 Burgundy Mist, and several Fiesta Reds and Black Jaguars.
-All of the Jaguars had matching headstocks.
There was a member here with a beautiful Daphne blue Jazzmaster that had a tort guard and unmatched headstock that I believe he said was an original 1961 model. I own it’s cousin from 1963 that had a tort guard that I replaced with mint. The guard was original, but the Daphne blue and a Mustang bridge aren’t.
That Daphne is a ‘62 veneer board version I believe and the forum member still has it as far as I know, really beautiful Jazzmaster, indeed.
