The Fender Player Series Jazzmaster reimagines the classic offset guitar for modern players. While the offset alder body and floating vibrato tailpiece remain true to the original, the Player Series Jazzmaster boasts a pair of humbucking pickups with impressive touch sensitivity and clarity. Whether you're playing clean or with a ton of fuzz, you've got a huge range of tone to explore just between the 3-way pickup selector and volume and tone knobs. All this at a price for working musicians makes the Fender Player Series Jazzmaster a value-packed guitar you shouldn't miss.
Fender went back to the drawing board with updated radii for more historically accurate body shapes, new vintage-inspired finishes, and a classic logo that harkens back to the Fenders of yesteryear. But these smooth-playing instruments also look to the future with modern enhancements that include 22-fret necks, upgraded bridges for better sustain, and new pickups that crank out legendary Fender tone by the boatload.
The Player Series Jazzmaster forgoes the extra rhythm circuit found on more traditional Jazzmasters, simplifying the control scheme and also eliminating the need for aggressive players to wedge something in there to prevent accidental switching. Players at Music Experience are fairly sure you won't miss it, though — between the vibrant and articulate humbuckers, a coil-splittable bridge pickup, and your trusty volume and tone knobs, you'll discover tones appropriate for practically any musical style.
Finished with satin urethane and loaded with 22 medium-jumbo frets, the maple neck on the Player Series Jazzmaster doesn't disappoint. Expect a comfortable feel that doesn't feel thin but won't impede your progress if you find yourself in higher positions. And if you're the type of guitarist who regularly tweaks your setup, or you live in extreme conditions, then you'll be pleased to know the truss rod adjustment point is at the headstock (instead of in the neck heel like the vintage originals).
With a fat, thick sound all its own and sleek, elegant style, the Player Jazzmaster stands out under the spotlight. It’s an inspiring instrument with a flexible, authentic Fender tone—a voice that works with any kind of music. The Jazzmaster keeps turning up in the hands of musical visionaries and rebels; it’s the ideal foundation for your sound. Rugged, raw and powerful, this guitar is ready to throw down.
Designed for authentic Fender tone—with a bit of an edge—our Player Series pickups keep a foot in the past while looking to the future.
The vintage-style tremolo bridge can be used to create pitch effects ranging from subtle to radical, letting you add a cool personal touch to your music.
The push/pull tone control selects the outside coil of the humbucking bridge pickup, unlocking classic single-coil sounds.
Adding another fret lets you bend the highest D up to an E, giving you access to four octaves of musical possibilities.
The Player Jazzmaster body is hand-shaped to original specifications.
