Fender 2015 Classic Player Jazzmaster Special ROsEwOoD Sunburst Offset 20739
You're looking at a 2015 Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster in sunburst finish in excellent playing and cosmetic condition. Frets are in good condition. All electronics sound good. It has a 9.5" radius maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard and medium-jumbo frets. The Rosewood board is noteable since Fender switched to Pau Ferro in 2017 and many people prefer the feel of rosewood!
The Classic Player Jazzmaster is a simple gutiar with excellent sounding pickups. Offset body for a great look and iconic Fender Adjust-o-Matic bridge with vintage tremolo. Cosmetically, there are some small edge marks (see pics), but overall very clean. Weight is 7 pounds, 14 ounces, almost a pound lighter than the last Jazzmaster I sold. Comes with tremolo bar but no case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (See bottom for setup and packing details.) Thanks for looking!
Just in case you're not familiar with this model, the switching is set up in the vintage fashion, the way the Jazzmaster was originally envisioned by Fender. That means the black slide switch above the pickups when up is in normal or "lead" mode. In lead mode, the white 3-way pickup switch and Volume/Tone knobs down below work just like any normal guitar. The black switch in down position engages the "rhythm" circuit which uses only the neck pickup and the two black controls for volume/tone, and it has a much warmer "jazzy" sound.

My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
