An article from Tone Report, "Live Gear Spotlight: Gary Clark Jr", shows he uses a vintage 1966 Fender Jazzmaster: > The oddball of the group is a yellow vintage Jazzmaster, which is a whole new feel for Clark. He's still getting used to the guitar, and plays it occasionally on ["Third Stone from the Sun"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2bZAH9D1mI) and "If You Love Me Like You Say."

The official '66 Jazzmasters had a bound neck, block inlays and a matching headstock but early production models had a bound neck and dot inlays. As someone who thinks block inlays just look "off" on a fender, but who loves bound necks, I consider myself extremely fortunate to have come across an ugly ugly refinished (we're talking orange house paint) '66 Jazzmaster produced in January. The refinish job garnered a VERY reasonable price tag (this was also before the Jazzmaster renaissance of recent years) and it's all mine. After getting a new paint job, this is my main guitar. For me, this guitar is the clearest and most concrete example of why a vintage instrument is worth the heftier price tag. The neck pickup like Pop Staples in a bottle, the vibrato arm works like butter and the neck feels like home.
