Fender Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster
Special Order

Go Indie with this Sonic Youth Jazzmaster!

Pick up the Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster guitar and tap into the unmistakable Sonic Youth sound. Ranaldo — one of Sonic Youth's indie rock guitaring geniuses — teamed up with the crew at Fender to create this Sapphire Blue masterpiece. This one's hot-rodded with independent spirit, and a pioneering alternative Fender, fitting for anyone into making some artful noise. For the Sonic Youth die-hards, Fender's also got the next ingredient in this noise rock recipe: pair the Thurston Moore Jazzmaster with this Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster and get ready to start a wave.

Fender Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Primed for that Sonic Youth sound
  • Hot-rodded with independent spirit

Primed for that Sonic Youth sound
It's hard to draw any comparisons to this decidedly trailblazing band. With Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore at the 6-string helm, Sonic Youth took on the world their own way... a noisy, underground, textured, avant-garde sort of way. And that's just what the Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster is all about. Ranaldo's been playing Jazzmasters forever — loves 'em. So, he and Fender got together to develop his ultimate Jazzmaster. It's hot-rodded and it's definitely eye-catching. Read on to find out more about the Fender Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster.

Hot-rodded with independent spirit
The Jazzmaster is already the outside-of-the-mainstream Fender of choice. And here, with the Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster, you've got an independent take on the independent axe. Special features of the Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster include two new Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups, re-voiced to original vintage spec. It's also got a black anodized pickguard, and and American Vintage Jazzmaster tremolo with Mustang bridge and tremolo lock button. In Ranaldo style, there's a single master volume control, a Sapphire Blue Transparent satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and a black-painted headstock. A Sonic Youth 'zine comes with it, and you also get a Sonic Youth sticker sheet for decking out the included hardshell case.
