What we say:Fender have redesigned elements of the Jazzmaster to accentuate what it always had and make this popular model even more of a classic.
The main benefits to this model, and the most welcome to a lot of players, are a simplifying of the controls and the substitution of Mustang saddles into the bridge. Jaguars are notorious for having strings ping out from the bring when a certain amount of pressure is applied. A popular modification was to put the Mustang saddles on and Fender have wisely does this from the start!
The custom-designed pickups are hotter than usual and the volume control has a good treble bleed circuit so when you clean up the hot pickups by turning the volume down, you don’t get mushy, unusable tone: your Jazzmaster’s distinctive bite and cut remains, just with less gain! Perfect.
The scale length is standard Fender 25.5”, as Jazzmasters have always been, but now the neck has gotten chunkier: it’s now a more substantial ‘Deep C’ carve which is so comfortable and playable! The radius of the neck is Fender’s modern standard: 9.5 inches. Even the frets have been reconsidered: Fender are favouring Narrow-tall frets which lie somewhere between vintage frets and jumbos. You’ll feel a nice balance between chord playing and leads with this type of fret, curbing impulses to go too shred heavy. Unless you’re J Mascis, that’s not what Jazzmasters are for anyway!
All in, the upgrades are all really sensible and warranted. Jazzmaster fans may find this to be their ultimate guitar.
Not enough can be said about how incredible this Mystic Seafoam is! This is such a special finish, especially matched to the maple of the neck. What a fantastic looking, feeling and playing guitar!
