Originally intended for sophisticated jazz guitarists, the Jazzmaster was quickly embraced by musicians attracted to its left-of-center looks and fat sound. A direct descendent of the guitar that powered underground music from the late-'60s to today, the American Professional Jazzmaster is ready to lend its unique sound to your playing. == Features == • Two Michael Frank-designed single-coil Jazzmaster pickups • Jazzmaster tremolo bridge with brass Mustang saddles and screw-in arm • New modern "Deep C"-shaped neck profile • Bone nut; 22 narrow-tall frets for easier bending • Treble bleed circuit maintains highs when reducing volume • Includes Elite Molded hardshell case == V-Mod Pickups == V-Mod Jazzmaster pickups are voiced specifically for their positions, overwound for high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend. == New "Deep C" Neck Profile == Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional "Deep C" neck profile sports more substantial shoulders-somewhat between a "Modern C"- and "U"-shaped profile. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a more natural feel that's perfect for chord and single-note playing alike. == Narrow-Tall Frets == Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation. == New Bridge == Engineered for ultra-stable performance, the American Professional Jazzmaster bridge features brass Mustang saddles and a screw-in arm. The new saddles keep the strings where they belong, even when the bridge is pummeled, while the new arm lets you dial-in the arm tension that's perfect for you. == Treble-Bleed Circuit == The treble-bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the instrument's volume is set. == New Hardshell Case == The Elite Molded Case features body-hugging contours to protect your cherished instrument, TSA latches for increased security and nested stacking ability for easy storage and secure transport.
