Traditional Jazzmaster® Wiring Harness

Introducing high quality prewired assemblies for the Jazzmaster®. Just like our highly regarded Strat, Tele and bass assemblies, these prewired Jazzmaster® assemblies use only the finest electronic components, and are even 'period correct' with regards to the color coding of the vintage style cloth wire. All components are treated with Caig Deoxit for long trouble free use. They feature our custom made copper shields, only available at Rothstein Guitars. Fair warning, these will not be inexpensive but they will be of the highest quality you can find and worth every penny.

Here is a link to a YouTube video a customer posted of one of a prewired assembly he purchased from us wthout pickups. He then installed Lollar pickups on his own.

If purchased with pickups, the pickups will come pre-connected.

A Note About Fit

The pickguards we carry are manufactured by Fender and will drop right into any USA Fender Jazzmaster, however we now carry both the import and USA versions of the tortoise pickguard since it by far the most popular color choice. Upon special request, we can special order an import pickguard in another color such as white pearl. Please note the difference between between the pattern of the import and USA pickguards is relatively minor, however there are some differences with regards to color.

The image below will show the color variations between the USA vs the import tortoise pickguard. You can click on the image to see a larger version.


* IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CELLULOID PICKUARDS (this applies to Tortoise Pickguards)

** Tortoise pickguards are made of Celluloid like you will see on vintage Fender guitars. This is the GENUINE stuff.  Please be aware that celluloid is very flammable, so please keep it away from flames. Celluloid is a solvent based plastic and it tends to shrink over the years. Many vintage Fender guitars are plagued with this phenomenon. Very often the material cups slightly, so that when placed on a flat surface its edges may be raised 1/4" to 1/2" above the surface. Even if they're cupped when they come out of the package, they can easily be screwed flat onto the guitar.


Knobs and Pickup Covers

  • Available in white, black and cream.

How Long Will It Take? - please read before ordering

All pickups will be special ordered from Curtis Novak and each assembly is wired and tested one at a time to your specs by hand. Our lead time on Jazzmaster assemblies is approximately 3 - 5 weeks. We will do our best to process your order as quickly as possible.
