I think He's refering to the Black "The Ventures" MIJ Jazzmaster. It came stock with SD SJM-1 Pick ups and a Custom Pickguard that had a "The Ventures" Inscription and the Rythem cuircuit was also deleted on these, the "sharkfin" top on the pickguard was rounded of because of this.
Theu were alimeted edition. Perhaps indeed the "35 anniverary".
They seam to fetch some money these days, but appart from the mentioned non stock pu's and different pickguard, they are MIJ guitars.
