FS: Fender American Special Jazzmaster "Magnificent Seven" Limited Edition - Bigsby + Mastery £1100!

What's Hot
CFHCFH Frets: 74
edited July 20 in Guitars £

Selling my rather fetching and wonderful Fender American Special Jazzmaster to make way for something else. 

I bought it from @DB1 recently and as amazingly as it plays, sounds, and looks I prefer a standard JM vibrato (although the Bigsby is a really nice unit - much more precise, and does look very cool). 

One of a 500 run worldwide as part of their Magnificent Seven series. This one's had a Mastery bridge upgrade (£180!), it has the Bigsby licensed B50 trem, and locking tuners, the original case and is in great condition. I also have a cream pickguard that was custom made for this that I will include in case the black doesn't do it for you!

Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 9.5 radius, American Vintage '65 pickups, and simplified switching. The neck profile is a really nice middling C and with the chunky frets it plays a dream.

I'm pricing this at £1300 Now £1100!! There is another used one for sale in the UK at £1500, without the upgrades, and in the US the used prices range from £1500 to £2000 (plus shipping and import taxes).

I'm based in Leeds and whilst I'm after collection only I would happily drive a while to meet up to do a deal.

I'd be open to trades for similar offsets or potentially a tele, but cash is king really. 

Dave has very kindly allowed me to use his pics:

    Blimey, it does look good.

    I do like the Bigsby myself, and have just bought a K-Line San Bernadino with a very similar spec. This is a gorgeous guitar though, and I have to say that  @CFH is an absolute star to deal with and a true gent.
    My girl, she don't stand no cheating
    Cos she's a sheep and just stands there bleating

    I 'minded' this guitar briefly to assist the transition from @DB1 and @CFH - two fine pillars of this community.

    It is a fabulous looking guitar, really lovely. And it could pretty much pass for new.

    A steal at that price. GLWTS.

    Thanks Dave! I'm surprised it is still here at this price given the quality of the guitar and the upgrades.

    Have you not been lowballed yet by the FB's infamous offset lowballer? Give it time...  :#

    Love that cream pickguard, by the way.
