When Fender thinks outside the box, things get weird and wonderful. The Parallel Universe Vol. II Spark-O-Matic Jazzmaster is a prime example. Loaded with 3 custom Seymour Duncan humbuckers and a solid/chambered ash body, the Spark-O-Matic is one unique instrument. If you’re looking for a versatile, muscular guitar with head-scratching-but-cool style, this Jazzmaster might be your next purchase.
The Spark-O-Matic’s Well-Built BodyThe Jazzmaster was introduced in 1958, three months after Sputnik 1 headed for orbit, starting the space race. The Spark-O-Matic’s offset body fits right in that era. But under the hood, there is a major modern update—the “wings” are chambered ash. You’ll hear more resonance, and enjoy the weight-saving results, too. The guitar’s core is mahogany—rare for a Fender. It provides a nice midrange and a boost of sustain.
Versatile ElectronicsThe Spark-O-Matic sports 3 Seymour Duncan mini-humbuckers. Each coil in SM-3B bridge pickup is overwound, producing a natural openness with grit. The neck and middle position SM-1N pickups provide the high-end of a single-coil while retaining the snarl of a humbucker. It’s a combination we think you’ll like. The 5-way selector makes the Spark-O-Matic even more versatile.
Hardware You Can Count OnFender outfitted this Parallel Universe model with an American Professional Jazzmaster bridge. Brass saddles will keep your strings stable, and you’ll be able to personalize the tension of the new arm. Keep it loose if your trem use is spartan, or tight if you go surf-crazy on every line. ClassicGear tuners maintain the vintage look of the Spark-O-Matic, but have a modern 18:1 tuning ratio.
This Is a Jazzmaster That Works on Every LevelThe Fender Parallel Universe Vol. II Spark-O-Matic Jazzmaster takes a Fender mainstay and spins it on its head. If you’re the type of player that places a priority on style and pure performance, check out the Spark-O-Matic. It includes a custom certificate of authenticity, and a Surf Green deluxe hardshell case.
