The classic is back!

As its moniker suggests, Fender's Vintera series is based heavily on the vintage instruments from the company's early years (the name is derived from the phrase "Vintage style for the modern era"). Fender’s Vintera range offers players classic Fender models that are built to the company’s customary high standard of quality and largely true to the original designs, but since they are built in Mexico, they can be offered at prices that will have even ambitious beginners reaching for their wallets. Vintera models include the 60s Jazzmaster IBM shown here, which features the original Jazzmaster's circuitry and sophisticated tremolo system and comes in a stunning "Ice Blue Metallic" finish.


The Jazzmaster was first launched as the logical successor to the Telecaster and Stratocaster, and it features sophisticated electronics that allow a wide range of different sounds to be achieved as well as a floating tremolo system which provides a higher level of tuning stability than the simpler design used on the Stratocaster. The original Jazzmaster used alder wood for the body and rosewood for the fingerboard, and while the former has been retained here, the latter has been replaced by pau ferro, which is also known as "Bolivian rosewood" and offers a very similar sound and playing feel, as rosewood is now a protected species. The Vintera Jazzmaster also boasts a comfortable "Thin C" neck profile.

The "exotic" Fender

Like its illustrious ancestor, the Fender Vintera 60s Jazzmaster is easy to play and combines a wealth of features with an extensive sonic palette. It is considered one of Fender's more unconventional instruments as compared to the classic Telecaster and Stratocaster, which is why well-known musicians like J. Mascis, Robert Smith, Elvis Costello, and generations of guitarists before them were drawn to the Jazzmaster. Players looking for a Jazzmaster that is as true as possible to the original design and brings with it the same vintage flair cannot go wrong with the Fender Vintera 60s Jazzmaster, provided they don’t mind that, unlike its illustrious ancestor, it does not bear the sought-after “Made In USA” label. And it goes without saying that this model is the guitar of choice for fans of Grunge and Surf music.

About Fender

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Timeless Fender amplifier models such as the Bassman, Twin, Deluxe, and Princeton also enjoy a stellar reputation. Besides maintaining its classic product portfolio, however, the company is also constantly developing new products that make Fender a driving force in today’s music industry.

Rare and sought-after

So whom exactly is the Fender Vintera 60s Jazzmaster aimed at? The answer is basically everyone who likes the way the Jazzmaster looks. Stringing it with light-gauge strings and selecting the bridge pickup is the perfect recipe for twangy Surf Rock, and a pleasant Jazz sound can be achieved by throwing on a set of heavier strings and selecting the neck pickup via the dedicated "Rhythm" circuit. The Jazzmaster is virtually free of sonic limitations, and it is a pleasant surprise that Fender has revived one of its historic guitars - particularly one that is so rare and sought-after on the vintage market.

You'll fall in love with it.

I needed a guitar to play shows. We are playing indie-rock and let me tell you how much I love it.

The sound is just beautiful. The middle pickup position delivers this 60's clean sound, it's hard to top that. On the other hand the neck pickup brings warm guitar sound.
It looks great, well build, had some problems with bridge, had to tighten some screws but that's five minute work.

Worth every cent, it'll make you feel like a badass.

A lire avant de se lancer dans l'aventure Jazzmaster.

! !! Super guitare magnifique a mon goût , finition propre mais pas impeccable non plus .. une petite bavure de 1mm au niveau du sillet rien de dramatique!

Je rêvais de cette guitare depuis la sortie du modèle vintera, j'ai enfin sauté le pas, et je ne suis pas déçu, MAIS, quand la guitare est arrivée, les réglages d'usine était vraiment pas terrible (action super haute, cordes a changer, harmonisation horrible donc très mauvais réglage de l'intonation..et des buzz horribles au niveau du chevalet. je commence a regarder sur le net la raison ..

Le chevalet dois OBLIGATOIREMENT être changé pas celui du modèle Mustang (30 euros) qui est bien plus stable et permet d'avoir un accord juste! c'est dommage que Fender continue a vendre cette vintera avec ce vieux chevalet "vintage"qui est vraiment de mauvaise qualité pour le prix de la guitare, j'ai également acheté un "StopBuzz" (30 euros) pour éviter tout les bruits horribles métalliques.
ET j'ai enfin une guitare parfaite! qui sonne comme jamais avec les beaux micros veloutés ! et un accord et une action parfaite!

voila juste déçu de devoir se prendre la tête a la réception plutôt que de profiter de son rêve!

Vous voila prévenu! sinon foncer!

livraison rapide et très bien protégé! merci Thomann

A remarkable Vintage style Fender Jazzmaster.
Laptop Dancer 09.07.2020
First of all, big thanks to Thomann for a very quick turnaround and delivery! The guitar arrived well packaged as a box within a box and the instrument is in flawless condition.

Build quality and look:
This Jazzmaster is absolutely beautiful!! I chose the model in Ice blue metallic with matching headstock. Together with the tortoise shell pick guard and off-white controls/pickup covers it oozes a real vintage vibe. The build quality is excellent as with most Mexican made guitars.

The fretboard has a Mid 60’s "C" shape which is a bit thinner at the neck and wider at the base. The 7.25 radius with 21 vintage frets might take some getting used to if you are more familiar with a modern "C" shape and normal fret size.
The Pau ferro fretboard is a lighter red/brown colour in comparison to a darker rosewood neck. I don’t notice any difference in feel compared to my other rosewood guitars. The tuners seem stable and are vintage style. The matching headstock is also a lovely addition and not normally available on a Jazzmaster at this price.

The specs say it comes with 9 gauge strings although they feel like 10s. I will put 11s on it which are recommended for Jazzmasters.
A bridge upgrade to a 7.25 radius staytrem bridge may be an option in the future but I haven’t felt the need so far. Nothing wrong with the stock bridge as mine seemed to be set up pretty well and I’ve not had any string slipping off the bridge.
(This is a common problem with all Fender offsets with a floating tremolo and bridge system, especially for players who hit the strings harder).

The pick ups sound just like a Jazzmasters should - They apparently mimic the more vintage Jazzmaster sound of the 60's. Lots of bell-like tones, Surf music and spy movie twang from the two single coil pickups. All controls work perfectly and the rhythm control section on the upper horn provides a nice “jazzy tone” in comparison with the three pick up lead selector which has more bite to it.

The guitar came with a deluxe gig bag. Although it is nice enough for storage it is a bit thin so maybe not ideal for heavy gigging. I will probably invest in a tweed case to complete the vintage package.

Overall the Vintera 60's Jazzmaster is the perfect instrument for guitarists who desire a vintage correct Jazzmaster at a reasonable price point. (The US made Original Jazzmaster costs twice the price yet I doubt you get twice the quality).
It is a solid built, top instrument. The Jazzmaster plays and looks fantastic and I am really very happy with it.

Para música Surf
D.Atanes 28.04.2020
La compré para tocar Surf música.
Suena bien y es robusta, el tremolo no falla y mantiene la afinación.las pastillas suenan con poca salida, pero tiene un sonido cristalino.
Trae una funda acolchada que no utilizo, pero es un detalle.

El puente es bastante regular tirando a mal, las selletas después de tocar un poco se van destornillando hasta el punto de tocar la cuerda contra el mastil, gran problema este... que para solucionarlo cambié el puente por el de un mustang.
También cambié las pastillas por unas pure vintage fender 65, y el cambio es abismal...
Al cambiar las pastillas, estas venian sin muelle debajo para subir o bajar la altura, venia con un cacho de goma, bastante malo...

Una buena guitarra a un buen precio, pero con estos cambios mucho mejor.
