A close encounter with an original Ocean Turquoise Fender offset is a rare event indeed, and this ’66 Jazzmaster even has case candy. We take a deep dive…
This Jazzmaster sports a retroitted Mustang bridge

Identifying custom colours on vintage Fenders isn’t always as straightforward as you might think. This is especially true when the colour coats were oversprayed with clear nitro, which would subsequently darken with exposure to sunlight. It doesn’t take much for Olympic White to look blonde, or Lake Placid Blue to turn green. But when a inish is clearly original and you have the funds, it sometimes makes sense to buy the guitar and igure it out later… That’s more or less what happened with this 1966 Jazzmaster. It was sold to ATB Guitars in Cheltenham, England as a Sherwood Green example. On arrival, closer examination reveals the inish to be the equally rare and arguably more attractive Ocean Turquoise.
