Maple Neck Fender Jazzmaster?

Post by Tahbuss » Fri Feb 21, 2014 5:56 pm

Were there a whole lot of these? I've heard of a few 'prototype' Jazzmaster that had them. Does anybody know anything about these guitars? Pictures?

I can't even imagine a cream or desert colored with an anodized and a maple neck.. sooo amazing :?

I've not seen any standard production Jazzmaster with maple boards. But you could mock it up in the dressing room at the top of the page.
I finally finish building a guitar, go to play it, and then remember, "oh yeah, that's right. I suck at playing... Why did I build another guitar again?"

IIRC, some of the Squier VM Jazzmasters had maple boards.

I was going to go maple on my last build but didn't at the last minute. I wanted an all-one-color guitar; maple, cream, oly white… Would look like this if I had:

Soooo nice. I wish they would make an interchangable maple neck for both the jaguar and jazzmaster MIJ or USA. I found this hunting online...

yes they made a handful in the late 60s/early 70s.
this one is in the fender book, but does nowadays actually belong to another OSGer here (from/in france, iirc)

Totally amazing! I have dream journals filled with this Jazzmaster. Seriously, if the owner is listening, I'm willing to drop some shiny Euros on this guy! Drop me a line and name your price, hoss.

You don't see too many of those maple necks from the late 60's/ early 70's. It would be great if Fender started offering a maple neck jazzy/jag. Maybe a nice reissue is in order :? :? :? :?

I'm not a fan of block inlays but hell, beggers can't be choosers lol. :wacko:

The body on that Jazzmaster is also interesting, or more specifically the color. It's almost as if it's a honey burst as opposed to a 3tsb. :P

My jazzmasters neck is maple, but the fretboard isn't.
