A Modern Take on the Classic Jazzmaster
The Fender Player Series Jazzmaster reimagines the classic offset guitar for modern players. While the offset alder body and floating vibrato tailpiece remain true to the original, the Player Series Jazzmaster boasts a pair of humbucking pickups with impressive touch sensitivity and clarity. Whether you’re playing clean or with a ton of fuzz, you’ve got a huge range of tone to explore just between the 3-way pickup selector and volume and tone knobs. All this at a price for working musicians makes the Fender Player Series Jazzmaster a value-packed guitar you shouldn’t miss.
Fender’s Player Series: vintage vibe, modern edge
Fender went back to the drawing board with updated radii for more historically accurate body shapes, new vintage-inspired finishes, and a classic logo that harkens back to the Fenders of yesteryear. But these smooth-playing instruments also look to the future with modern enhancements that include 22-fret necks, upgraded bridges for better sustain, and new pickups that crank out legendary Fender tone by the boatload.
Simplified switching with a vast sonic range
The Player Series Jazzmaster forgoes the extra rhythm circuit found on more traditional Jazzmasters, simplifying the control scheme and also eliminating the need for aggressive players to wedge something in there to prevent accidental switching. Players at Sweetwater are fairly sure you won’t miss it, though — between the vibrant and articulate humbuckers, a coil-splittable bridge pickup, and your trusty volume and tone knobs, you’ll discover tones appropriate for practically any musical style.
Highly playable neck with modern “C” profile
Finished with satin urethane and loaded with 22 medium-jumbo frets, the maple neck on the Player Series Jazzmaster doesn’t disappoint. Expect a comfortable feel that doesn’t feel thin but won’t impede your progress if you find yourself in higher positions. And if you’re the type of guitarist who regularly tweaks your setup, or you live in extreme conditions, then you’ll be pleased to know the truss rod adjustment point is at the headstock (instead of in the neck heel like the vintage originals).
