My new guitar, a 2000 re-issue Fender Jazzmaster in colour type 2 tone sunburst and white pickguard. What an amazing guitar! The playablility of this guitar is just astounding. I myself have quite fat fingertips and have struggled with certain makes and models of guitars in the past, but this has a nice sized frettboard, with a good distnace between strings. the sound quality can be changed from quite crisp and clean sounds to quite muddy dirty sounds from just the flick of a switch, so the guitar is easily versatile in many genres of music, id say most adequit for blues, surf rock, 50's rock and most obviously jazz. With the factory string (which were 10. gauge) I found it to be quite twangy due to the bridge slots being quite wide. But after going and buying a set of D'addario 12. It came to life straght away. The only thing to let this guitar down is the tunning mechanics. If you really go nuts on the thing it tends to de-tune itself quite easily. A problem that has been easily adjusted by putting some exsiting 'Grover' mechanics on. But generally a great guitar. Ideal for beginners too as my son of 9 has really warmed to this guitar and finds it a lot easier to play than the Cort Z42 I purchased for him.
Made in Japan / Limited Run / Alder Body, Maple Neck, Rosewood Fretboard / 2 The Jazzmaster has all the classic tone of the original. First introduced at the 1958 NAMM show, the Jazzmaster guitar features a uniquely contoured body, a snappy 25-1/2 scale length and warm-sounding pickups. Separate lead and rhythm circuit switching is a classic original design incorporating independent volume and tone controls, and the floating tremolo with tremolo lock adds to the Jazzmaster's distinctive look and sound.
