UK-based builder Vintage has debuted a new addition to its Icon series in the form of the V65V – a mid-'60s-inspired take on the Fender Jazzmaster.

The new model is based around the classic combination of an alder body and maple neck (a bolt-on, of course). Here the neck is one-piece construction, with a soft-C profile and 22-fret rosewood fretboard offering 25.5” scale-length.
