A selection of guitars from each year of the 1960s are highlighted
1965 Fender Jazzmaster
This 1965 Fender Jazzmaster was purchased in 1965. After the original owner passed away in 1968, the guitar sat nearly untouched until early 2010 when the original owner's wife passed away. The guitar has the original flatwound "Spanish" guitar strings on it and very little wear on the gloss neck finish. The traditional Stratocaster knobs, celluloid pickguard, and clay-dot inlay suggest that the guitar may be from the 1964-1965 transition period.
