PRICE DROP!!Ventures tribute model designed by the Ventures and Fender japan for the japanese market. Very rare model as used by yer man from The Raveonettes and yer man from Glasvegas. Differences are the tone circuit is absent (who uses it anyway?!), the neck is a chunky C with block inlays and a satin finish. the tone and volume controls are set back further away from the strings than a normal jazzmaster. the pickups are seymour duncan and the finish is a beautiful ebony transparent burst which allows the grain of the lightweight ash to appear around the scratchplate. the dots on the binding of the neck are larger than normal so i'm assuming the Ventures dude is a little short sighted. the headstock is a 60's shape with matching paint and gold logos. the hardware is gold all over. comes with hardcase and gold tremolo arm.
