From Our Research Team:
The past and future collide!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 great intonation. The Classic Player Jazzmaster Special merges the past and the present!
Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special at a Glance:
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 Unique Features
There are a variety 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 output and an Adjusto-Matic bridge keeps intonation in check. Medium jumbo frets make bends easier and a new neck pocket cut provides 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.

Classic Player Jazzmaster
by Mike from Philadelphia, PAI purchased the classic player jazzmaster about 3 months ago, so this is a comprehensive review over a few months use. Prior to this, I was mainly a SG player. This has now become my main guitar for... read more [+] every style I play (folk-rock, country, blues, jazz). It gets used every day, and is gigged with constantly. Holds up extremely well to the rigors of gigging, abuse, and feels like a tank. The floating vibrato system on here is the most smooth system Iíve ever used, the arm stays in place perfectly. Iíve had no issues with tuning at all. No sharp fret edges, and getting a super low action was easy. The 9.5 radius yields a not-too-thick neck thatís comfortable up the fretboard. The hotter pickups are nice and balanced, and the rhythm circuit gets beautiful muted jazz tones. However, the bridge pickup is a bit bright for my tastes, but I understand that is all personal preference. All in all, probably one of the best guitar purchases Iíve made in the last 10 years. close [-]

by Steven from Charlottesville, VA USAI purchased my MIM Jazzmaster in black 5 years ago when they first hit the shelves. Everything about this guitar is great, the stock p-90 pickups sound fine. Everything is just as it should be. I've n... read more [+]ever had any problems with it overall through the 5 years that I've owned it. Sounds, feels, looks and has the soul like a classic USA Jazzmaster.

The only reason why I give it a 4.5 is because there is no chance you can customize the guitar. USA Jazzmaster pickups won't fit in the pick-guard or body. And you can get any color pick-guard you want...as long as its brown tortoise shell.
But the guitar is amazing. (It can get Nels Cline tones....so thats a win)
Not to mention you cant beat the price.
Hope this helps! close [-]
