Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special - Black, Rosewood fingerboard

Why We Love This Product!

Classic Jazzmaster Vibe... and More!

The Classic Player Jazzmaster Special takes everything that made the Jazzmaster such a revolutionary instrument in the 1960s and adds some modern player-requested touches. The alder body is loaded with new pickups that provide fatter tone and hotter output. Another interesting enhanced feature is the neck pocket is cut differently for better pitch. The trem plate has been moved to increase the break angle and improve sustain. The Classic Player Jazzmaster Special also sports an Adjusto-Matic bridge for awesome intonation. The Classic Player Jazzmaster Special merges the past and the present!

Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special at a Glance:
    • Classic Player One-of-a-kind Features
    • Fender Style

Fender Style
Fender guitars of the late '50s and early '60s borrowed a lot from the automobile designs of the times, which meant lots of chrome and lines that were anything but "traditional." The Jazzmaster used the same offset-waist body shape as the Jaguar with a streamlined control scheme for more straight-ahead players.

Classic Player One-of-a-kind Features
There are a wide range of new features on the Classic Player Jazzmaster Special that set it apart from its vintage-styled siblings. New pickups provide fatter tone and more out and an Adjusto-Matic bridge keeps intonation in check. Medium jumbo frets make bends easier and a new neck pocket cut offers better pitch and a comfy feel. Another cool modification from the original, the trem plate has migrated closer to bridge to increase break angle and sustain and a screw-in tremolo arm is also a stark improvement over the original.
