OVERVIEW

An elegant model with a rich voice and an amazing finish.

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.

An elegant model with flexible electronics and a rich voice, the Jazzmaster’s introduction in 1958 marked the first time a rosewood fingerboard was used on a Fender instrument. Thanks to its effortless playing feel and ergonomic offset-waist body, the Jazzmaster has powered infinite musical genres, including surf rock, gospel, new wave and indie rock, among others.

Developed by longtime pickup guru Michael Frank, creator of the renowned Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster® Pickups, the brand-new V-Mod Jazzmaster pickups kick out hot, vintage-inspired tone with plenty of punch and definition. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit.

The new modern "Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords. The improved tremolo and bridge incorporate a screw-in arm and brass Mustang saddles that stabilize the strings while adding a touch of sonic zip to your tone.


The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Jazzmaster is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.

    Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Professional Jazzmaster Ebony Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    The American Professional Jazzmaster has become my favorite and go to electric guitar. I say "has become" my favorite because , IMHO, Fender has a few missteps with this guitar.
    First the good:
    The new Jazzmaster is streamlined, no rhythm circuit, which for my needs works well. The fit and finish is flawless. The neck is substantial but not so much that it feels bulky. It feels great in the hand. Very comfortable. I really like the high, narrow frets and the ebony fretboard. The tuners are of very good quality and the case is top rate. The pickups all and all are very good. A little glassy on the top end, only my opinion. I could have lived with them but I ended up putting Lollar Jazzmaster P90's in. 5% underwound in the neck position. They are fantastic pickups! Clean or dirty, the Lollar pups are incredible.
    Now the not so good:
    It is a shame that in this day of modern manufacturing, Fender still has not fixed the Jazzmaster bridge correctly. The Mustang bridge Fender has chosen for these guitars, sets the strings dangerously close to the fretboard edge, which is easily fixed by replacing it with a Mastery Bridge. I'm not sure why Fender didn't just make the saddle spacing correct?! Also, plastic bushings support the bridge posts. Can't imagine plastic being a good tone material for the main part of transferring string vibration to the guitar body. Might have been a decision to keep the price point down, but It couldn't be very difficult to make steel thimbles that actually fit the bridge posts. Again, the Mastery bridge fixes that. The vibrato works nice and smooth but Fender has placed three domed bolts, two of which press-up against both 1st and 6th strings. That would make two points for string breakage if one uses the vibrato a lot. I replaced the stock vibrato with the Mastery Offset Vibrato, which again, fixes the problem and works flawlessly. I set up my Jazzmaster with Thomastik-Infeld Flatwound 12's. Now, this guitar plays and sounds incredible!
