Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '59 Jazzmaster Journeyman Relic - Faded Aged Daphne Blue with Hard Shell Case


Vintage Vibe Meets Modern Craftsmanship with the Fender Custom Shop '59 Jazzmaster Journeyman Relic


Timeless Elegance Reborn

The Fender Custom Shop proudly presents the Limited Edition '59 Jazzmaster Journeyman Relic, a guitar that pays homage to the iconic Jazzmaster model that first graced the world in 1958. After 65 years, this 1959 rendition effortlessly captures the charm, sound, and essence of the original Jazzmaster era, while introducing modern enhancements that will resonate with discerning players.

Aged to Perfection

Crafted from a sleek two-piece select alder body, the '59 Jazzmaster showcases the exquisite Journeyman Relic lacquer finish in Faded Aged Daphne Blue. This distinctive finish imparts the appearance of a cherished guitar that has been passed down through the years, bearing the signs of countless jam sessions, home practice, and some well-deserved playing wear. With light finish checking, friendly nicks and dings, and hardware that has dulled over time, this guitar exudes the character of a fortunate find.

Vintage Flair Meets Modern Precision

The rift-sawn maple neck features a '62-style Jazzmaster Large "C" profile and a 9.5"-radius flat-lam AAA rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow tall (6105) frets and a bone nut. Adding to its vintage charm is a single-ply gold anodized aluminum pickguard, reminiscent of early Jazzmaster models. The guitar is equipped with two Custom Shop hand-wound '62 Jazzmaster flat magnet pickups, a three-way pickup switch, and vintage dual-circuit (lead/rhythm) wiring. A special modern touch comes from the 250k volume and tone potentiometers, enhancing both tone and playability.

Premium Appointments for Superior Performance

This Jazzmaster boasts a Fender "floating vibrato" tailpiece paired with a modern Custom Shop RSD (Research Special Design) bridge, ensuring exceptional sustain and tuning stability. Vintage-style tuners, a wing string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity complete the package, making this Limited Edition '59 Jazzmaster Journeyman Relic an irresistible treasure for collectors and players alike.
