The Don Wilson Jazzmaster

I know that the black Ventures CIJ JM was part of the 3-guitar set that Fender sold in the 90s.

But does anyone have info on the "Don Wilson" JM that was MIJ?  I never heard of this model.

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.

No, I'm not referring to the black Fender Ventures JM.

This is a sunburst model.  Here's the link to it.

Hmm. Just noticed that it doesn't appear to be a Fender. I thought it was a JM at 1st glance, but I guess not.
