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 Style
  • Classic Player Unique Features

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 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.

Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster

I purchased a Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster from Sweetwater about one month ago - it was an exceptional purchase experience. I especially liked that I could pick the exact make/serial number using the Sweetwater guitar gallery online. The salesman was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He followed up after the purchase to ensure the guitar met expectations - needless to say, the entire purchase exceeded expectations in every way! The guitar came without a single fingerprint or flaw, it was set up perfectly, and actually in tune right out of the box. While Sweetwater may be a major online retailer, the staff and sales people don't treat the customer (or the instruments) like most high-volume stores/chains. The care was outstanding. I will absolutely call Sweetwater for my next purchase - I already have a new Strat in mind!

Geat Guitar!

I've been playing for 30 years and have owned my share of guitars. This one is definetly in my top 3(if not my #1). I've never owned a Jazzmaster and always wanted one. This thing looks,sounds, and plays great. Couldn't be happier.

A very special guitar.

This is a very special guitar, with a range of tones that I hadn't expected. It can do bright and jangly, smooth and jazzy, country twang, and raucous southern rock. I've been playing Strats and Teles for years, but somehow managed to ignore the Jazzmaster. Then, something triggered me to take a look. The switching is unique, but once you've spent some time playing this fine guitar, it all becomes natural. And, the neck is super-playable. A home run purchase!
