A Striking Axe for the Alt-Rock GuitaristYour Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster electric guitar pays tribute to the alt-rock axe-man of Dinosaur Jr., J Mascis. This beauty boasts a pair of versatile Jazzmaster single-coil pickups, slide switchable lead/rhythm tone circuits, upper and lower volume and tone controls for both lead and rhythm circuits, 21 jumbo frets over a rosewood fingerboard, a comfortable C-shaped maple neck, a warm-sounding basswood body, a tasteful Gold anodized aluminum pickguard, and a secure and ready-to-rock Adjusto-Matic bridge with a Vintage Style "Floating" tremolo tailpiece. You get a serious dose of tonal versatility, sleek looks, and addicting playability all in a single electric guitar.
Jazzmaster Basswood BodyYou'll look and sound great on stage donning your Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster electric axe. The Jazzmaster body shape features a striking contour that's curvy and comfy. Basswood is a lightweight and soft tonewood that yields an evenly balanced resonance, neither too dark nor too bright. Darken or brighten your output at your leisure utilizing your tone controls.
C-Shaped Maple Neck with 21 FretsThe maple neck on your Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster electric guitar features 21 jumbo frets housed in an invitingly smooth rosewood fingerboard. Each frets achieves a comfortable action if your fingers are itching for a little speed, and maple will place a somewhat modest push in those higher frequencies without too much bite.
Pair of Jazzmaster Single-Coil PickupsProjecting the warmth and drive of your performance are a set of Jazzmaster Single-Coil pickups at the neck and bridge. If you're a fan J Mascis's tone, then this powerful pair will do your ears justice. Fill in your signal with gain to get some crunchy distortion, or generate some hot feedback by dialing in more overdrive. The electronics on this axe feature a lead and a rhythm circuit, so your rig is ready for any situation the stage might demand.
Troves of Tonal ControlAlong with your tone and volume controls, you also have a pickup selector switch for three pickup combination settings. There is also a two-position slide switch -- up for lead, and down for rhythm -- to utilize these independent circuits. You also have upper and lower volume and tone control circuits to shape your sound. Play around with all of your controls to hear the different types of tone this guitar can generate.
