What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
Special Design Hot Jazzmaster pickups Very warm, fat single-coil tone with added output
Adjusto-Matic bridge Flawless intonation across all strings
Though never quite as universal as the Stratocaster or Telecaster, the Jazzmaster is an absolute classic Fender in its own right. The Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special is a vintage-styled version in the mold of the mid-60s classics complete with hallmark tone switches, soapbar pickups, and floating tremolo system. For the countless players out there who have always longed for a classic Jazzmaster of their own, the Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special is a fantastic choice.

Classic Jazzmaster Electronics

Apart from its unique body shape, the original Jazzmaster was distinguished by the use of two versatile soapbar pickups and an innovative tone-circuit switch. The Jazzmaster pickup was designed for tonal versatility and clarity using a wider coil than most Fender pickups and magnetic pole-pieces. Though single-coils, Fender Jazzmaster pickups are known for producing a rich, warm tonal character comparable to humbuckers. Ironically, the Jazzmaster was never widely adopted by jazz players, but the distinct tonal flavor given by the pickups and rhythm and lead circuits has made the Jazzmaster a mainstay in genres like surf-rock, grunge, and experimental-rock.

Revolutionary Floating Tremolo

Jazzmasters are also known for their distinctive floating tremolo system. This landmark Jazzmaster innovation puts a full range of tremolo tools right in your hand whether elongating a bend at the end of a solo or adding some wavy texture to your strumming pattern. Even with the wild floating tremolo, the Classic Player Jazzmaster Special does a great job staying in-tune thanks largely to the sturdy adjusto-matic bridge.

Pedalboard's Best Friend

The Jazzmaster has a reputation as one of the most pedal-friendly guitars ever made, and the Classic Player Jazzmaster Special is no exception. The versatile tone switching tools along with the responsive soapbar pickups strike an ideal configuration to be highlighted by any number of diverse stompboxes. Especially when run through a Fender tube amp, the Classic Player Jazzmaster combines with delay, reverb, fuzz and other pedals as if they are direct extensions of the guitar itself. The Jazzmaster's pedal-friendliness is one of the main reasons noise-rock pioneers like Dinosaur Jr's J Mascis and Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo can be counted as, well...Jazzmaster masters.

Vintage Fender Style and Feel

To round out the timeless appeal of the Classic Players Jazzmaster Special, Fender has outfitted this axe with a full set of stunning vintage features. The tortoise-shell pickguard set against the classic finishes makes a striking appearance as does the vintage headstock and tuners. The neck is made from maple in a comfortable C-shape profile, and capped with a rosewood fingerboard. Combined with the ergonomic back contour on the body, the Classic Players Jazzmaster Special is the kind of guitar that just begs to be played well past your bedtime.

Features:

- Vintage Jazzmaster design and style
- Updated Jazzmaster soapbar pickups
- Floating tremolo system with sturdy ajusto-matic bridge
- Comfortable C-shaped profile on maple neck
- Three-way pickup selector and rhythm/lead tone circuit switch
- Included gig bag

There's something about the design of the Jazzmaster that has attracted a certain breed of guitarist for decades. Maybe it's the distinctive tone and compatibility with effects. Maybe it's the ultra sleek design and vintage style. It might just be the appeal of having a classic Fender a little less common than a Strat or Tele. Whatever the reason, the Fender Classic Players Jazzmaster Special is a timeless take on the Jazzmaster design with all the quality and tone you expect from Fender.

The Fender Jazzmaster was first introduced to the world in 1958 with its uniquely contoured body, incorporating a snappy 25.5-inch scale length with warm-sounding pickups. Original lead and rhythm circuit switching incorporates independent volume and tone controls, and the floating tremolo with tremolo lock adds to the distinctive look and sound of the Jazzmaster.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Jazzmaster for the masses"
Sound: This is a great sounding guitar. The pick-ups are hotter than the vintage Jazzmaster but it makes sense to do so on a modern update. Ease of Use: Pretty simple to use. Some people might not be use to the second lead circuit which has its own volume and tone controls. But once you get your head around that it is pretty much straight forward. Quality: This guitar is solid. It is a Mexican made. A lot of people have misgivings about that. But I have not seen a flaw-- and I bought one that was discounted as blemished. Go figure. Value: I paid less than they sell for now. At the price I bought I'd give it a 10 but at the current price I am hard pressed to do so. The Wow Factor: I dreamed of a Jazzmaster since I was a kid. Now it is affordable.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Classic Jazzmaster"
Overall: Very impressed with the quality "out of the box". Guitar arrived set up perfectly and wasn't missing anything. I have played custom shop, vintage, and American series Jazzmasters but this things hangs with them and then some. I'm usually obsessive about tweaking my guitars to get a little more out of them but I can't really improve on this besides possibly throwing a stronger bridge pup in.
