    Default 1980's 62 Jazzmaster reissue

    Hi,

    I'm thinking of buying a early 80's 62 reissue. This I believe is the first time that fender started to do re-issues.
    I'm asking about the build quality & how these guitars are regarded?
    Do not know whether this is CBS or not.
    Apparently you have to remove the neck to find out & the seller does not wish to do this

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Well, there's a lot of gray areas in that proposition. One, unless the sale price is just outrageously low, I wouldn't do the deal if the seller won't let you examine it by a little disassembly. The '62 reissues are generally well thought of, but don't command huge prices. They are after all, reissues, and not the originals. Then the Jazzmaster demographic is sort of a niche market in itself. Not every player out there is a Jazzmaster fan. I suppose that would have been different if Hendrix played a Jazzmaster, but that is what it is.

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
