This guitar addresses the concerns I have regarding typical Jazzmasters. While it may be regarded by some as "Not a true Jazzmaster" due to the absence of traditional features, it perfectly caters to my needs. The pickups offer enhanced versatility and hotter tones compared to the standard Jazzmaster pickups. The vibrato is a reliable Bigsby, eliminating the notorious unreliability of the Jazzmaster vibrato. The absence of the jazz circuit is a welcome change as I personally haven't found it particularly useful. Additionally, the inclusion of the Jaguar pickup selector grants maximum tonal flexibility, allowing for the activation or deactivation of all three pickups. Remarkably, it manages to retain the ergonomic design and cool aesthetic that defines the Jazzmaster, making it a standout option in my opinion. I would highly recommend. The only critique it's that its a little pricy.
