Originally designed for jazz guitarists, the Jazzmaster was quickly adopted by surfers and punks who were drawn to the offset, contoured body, new vibrato system and flexible electronics. The 1959 Journeyman Relic Jazzmaster brings the vintage style, sound and feel of those exciting musical times into the modern era.
A pair of hand-wound Jazzmaster pickups crank out rich, throaty tone with enough power to slash through a mix. Vintage wiring and controls, including the classic rhythm circuit, shape the pickups’ voice to unlock your creativity. The Journeyman Relic lacquer finish lets the body wood breathe with pure Fender tone while looking (and feeling) like a well-loved guitar that’s been broken-on over hundreds of gigs.
