FENDER SQUIER JAZZMASTER Vintage Modified BARITONE Guitar Black Finish 45065
This is a 2016 Fender Squier Vintage Modifed Baritone Jazzmaster. These were only made for one year and are hard to find. The guitar plays great with no issues. Features include Seymour Duncan pickups, 30-inch scale, C-shaped 9.5" radius neck and pearloid block inlays. These are really a lot of fun to play. Every time I sit down with it all kinds of new ideas come up because it just sounds different than a standard guitar.
Cosmetically it's very clean. Has some mild marks along the rear edge, which I tried to show, but hard to see. Frets are in great condition. This will work with several baritone tunings. I use (and will set it up for) B to B. You can also use A to A and others. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, 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. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. 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.
The Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster from Squier offers players an exceedingly comfortable 30-inch scale length, with a C-shaped profile maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5-inch radius and 21 medium-jumbo frets with white pearloid block inlays. This Baritone Jazzmaster is outfitted with two Duncan Designed JM-101 single-coil, full-bodied pickups with Alnico 5 magnets, controlled via a three-way pickup switch.
A Perfect "Secret Weapon" Guitar
Low-strung Fenders have been a secret weapon of session guitarists for decades. And this Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Baritone puts that same low-end musical power into your hands for an affordable price. The basswood Jazzmaster body is bolted to a maple neck with a 30" scale length — perfect for maintaining punch from the low A-A tuning. And a duet of Duncan Designed JM-101B single-coil pickups delivers a fat yet twangy tone that cuts right through. With its unique tone, the Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Baritone is a valuable tool to have in your guitar collection.
Plenty of So-Cal personality
One look at this baritone and you'll immediately think of the Southern California rock 'n' roll scene. Its comfortably contoured offset basswood body is a favorite among surf fans and indie rockers alike. The maple neck is carved to a familiar C-shaped profile that is never too bulky. And the rosewood fretboard's 9.5" radius maintains chording consistency all the way up and down the neck. Not only that, but touches such as fretboard binding, block inlays, and chrome hardware give the Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Baritone a hot-rodded look.
Baritone electric guitars provide a voice and playing experience that is like nothing else. The punch and power that resonates from guitars like the Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Baritone come from a specific combination of design and materials that Fender has perfected over several decades. For instance, its 30" scale length keeps the strings tight for better tuning and assertive tone. Whether you're adding low-end chords, a unique-sounding melody, or even doubling a bass part, this baritone is a great way to do it.
Onboard this baritone is a pair of Duncan Designed JM-101B single-coil pickups. These pickups blend some of the best sonic elements of humbuckers and other single-coils. They deliver meaty lows that help push this bari's character to the front of a mix, while their natural bell-like highs ensure each string rings clearly. With the pickups in this guitar being equally happy driving a clean Fender Twin or a raging fuzz pedal, Sweetwater players have found a ton of versatility in this Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Baritone.
