Squier’s 40th-anniversary Vintage Edition series celebrates four decades of history with special edition models of all Fender’s classic guitars and basses. The most notable tribute to such a successful history is the stunningly blinged-out anodized gold pickguard and aged chrome hardware, beautifully complementing this axe's unique finish. It also boasts a comfortably classic vintage tinted "C"-shaped maple neck and maple fingerboard with old-school black dot fret markers. A pair of Fender-designed alnico single-coils equips this guitar with an authentic articulate Jazzmaster jangle, with spongy lows and brightly detailed highs. Stunning looks, comfortable playability, and incredible sound: the 40th-anniversary Vintage Edition series is a gold mine of 40 years of high-quality Squier instruments.
These Fender-designed single-coil Jazzmaster pickups give you the classic, hot-rocking tone that single-coils are known for. In addition, with vintage dual-circuit switching and volume and tone controls for each mode, you can explore many tonal options for lead and rhythm playing. And with the vintage-style bridge and “floating” vibrato, you can tap into all kinds of expressive, fun sonic stylings. So whether you're playing jazz or starting a garage band, the Jazzmaster is appointed with the features that throw open the doors to years of sonic exploration and all-around good times — and isn't that what music is all about?
Over the years, countless players have fallen in love with the neck of the Jazzmaster.

The 21 narrow tall frets retain the feel of a '60s original. Experience the feel and response of the neck that made so many surf rock players of the early 1960s adopt the Jazzmaster as the genre's go-to electric.
