From Our Research Team:
A Jazzmaster with the Roar of a DinosaurSquier's J Mascis Jazzmaster™ pays homage to the indie-rocking, distortion-loving axeman behind Dinosaur Jr. This offset-waisted vintage white beauty sports a gold anodized pickguard for a touch of vintage flash. Onboard the J Mascis Jazzmaster™, you'll find specs requested by J himself - an AdjustoMatic bridge, vintage styling, and a smooth-playing satin-finished neck, to name a few. Beyond that, you'll find a duo of full-toned single-coil pickups plus the Jazzmaster's famous flexible tone controls. All in all, you'll be ready to make some noise with the Squier® J Mascis Jazzmaster™.
Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
A guitar fit for a noise-rock king
You'll be supremely psyched to have the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster in your hands. This Squier pays tribute to the alt/indie rock founding father, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. Mascis certainly took the instrument to a new place with his feedback-drenched, distortion-laden rocking. And this new signature model pays affectionately ear-splitting homage to Mascis, giving the instrument a modern makeover for fans who've been clamoring for such a model.
Sports Mascis-requested mods to the already-flexible Jazzmaster
With its vintage inspired vintage white finish, '60s headstock, and gold anodized pickguard, the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster features the cosmetics, pickups and hardware specified by Mascis himself. Such cool mods include an Adjusto-Matic bridge, a slightly wider nut width, and a satin-finished neck. The Dinosaur roar comes from dual Jazzmaster single-coil pickups and the barrage of controls the Jazzmaster has always been known for - a 3-position toggle switch with volume and tone knobs and, for this model, a two-position slide switch with volume and tone controls configured as a "lead tone circuit" (up) and a "rhythm tone circuit" (down).

I Cant harly Believe it
by Midnightrider from Winston Salem, NCI have a pretty good collection of guitars, a few high dollar PRS's, Fenders, Gibson Firebird, Gretsch, Rickenbackers. I don't know why I ordered this guitar but its one of the greatest moves I've eve... read more [+]r made. Its incredible. My other guitars sound great but they're one trick ponies. This guitar will do it all. I love twang, the Rickenbacker jingle jangle and classic rock. I'm disabled and almost to old to gig anymore but if I do this guitar will be in my hands. For a $400 guitar the craftsmanship is great and I've got a lot of guitars to compare it to. Love the looks of the white with the gold pickguard. I was so impressed with this guitar I ordered the Squire Strat with the lipstick pickups. I'll report on it when it comes in. I'm not a big tremolo user but when I do use it it works and stays in tune. The set up was good from Sweetwater. I'm one happy camper! close [-]

You'll never go back....
by J. Hubner from United StatesOnce you plug this Jazzmaster in you'll never go back to whatever else you were playing before the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster landed in your grubby hands. Sweetwater has supplied me with years of cre... read more [+]ative fuel thanks to this guitar. Playability, tone, look,...all are on par with the $1800+ reissues that have taunted me over the years. It can be as quiet as if the amp were turned off, and as noise-addled as if Kevin Shields himself was pulling incantation from this alternative rock icon. I love everything about this guitar. The neck, the body, the masterful soapbar pick ups. And the floating tremolo? It's as if I've discovered the joy of a working tremolo bar for the first time in my 39 years. I never had to tune this guitar once. It can go from a muted jazz tone to in-your-face indie rock grit with the flick of a switch...literally.

Do yourself a favor and get in touch with Sweetwater. This guitar deserves to be played, admired, and adored by you. close [-]
by Brad from Oakdale, CTI'd wanted this guitar for a long time and my girlfriend surprised me with it, from Sweetwater, last fall. She's a keeper! I have a CIJ 62 RI also to compare this to. This has the most comfortable nec... read more [+]k I've ever played, I like the wider nut since I have big fingers. The pickups scream through my Big Muff. They're much higher output too. I can get the same sonic destruction with this guitar's volume at 3 as I can with my 62 at 10!! My only complaint would be the whammy bar doesn't like to stay in the tremolo but I can swap that eventually. Incredible value for the money, get one while they are still making them!! close [-]

Man, I love this guitar! The thing is alive with resonance. Great tone and was a pleasure to play right out of the box. This is the first time I used Sweetwater after seeing some good reviews on a few different forums. They did a nice set up and the transaction went smooth. Nice that you can see pics of the exact serial number guitar you're buying before you buy it. Having a name and face to contact at Sweetwater if there's a problem is a big plus. close [-]
