For decades, having a Jazzmaster slung over a shoulder has been a requirement for some of the biggest heroes in indie, alternative, and underground rock. This Affinity Jazzmaster HH elicits that same air of effortless cool thanks to its comfortable and balanced vintage-inspired contours. And with its duet of humbucking pickups, this guitar has some extra muscle under the hood for when you need a thicker, meaty tone. At this price, whether you're needing a great backup guitar, wanting an offset with a new attitude, or just starting out, the Affinity Series Jazzmaster HH makes adding a hot-rodded offset to your collection easier than ever.
There's a certain aura that demands attention when you take the stage with a Jazzmaster. Its offset shape has been turning heads since its introduction in the 1960s. And this Jazzmaster HH boasts the same design that has made believers from surf rock fans, shoe-gaze sonic explorers, and even metal heads. In fact, you've been able to find Jazzmasters in the hands of an array of players, such as Slipknot's Jim Root, punk pioneer Elvis Costello, and of course Music Experience can't forget Southern California's '60s heroes, the Beach Boys.
What the Jazzmaster has meant to players looking to expand their sonic possibilities, humbuckers, such as the ones found in the Affinity Jazzmaster HH, have meant to guitarists who demand a fat, authoritative tone for punching an amplifier into tight, harmonically rich overdrive. If that's you, or if you're a die-hard Jazzmaster junkie who wants to add another voice to your arsenal, you'll be amazed at what this guitar is capable of. And of course, these humbuckers get rid of the single-coil hum that can plague other similar instruments.
Jazzmaster tremolos deliver sonic and tactile peculiarities that give them their place on top of the offset heap. But sometimes having a reliable hardtail guitar is just what the doctor ordered. This instrument lets you enjoy stable tuning, fantastic intonation across the whole fretboard, and no tremolo system to accidentally bump. With its straightforward setup and stable hardware, the Affinity Series Jazzmaster HH is for no-nonsense rockers.
Perfect for aggressive musical styles that require a pair of fat-sounding humbucking pickups, the Affinity Series Jazzmaster HH combines slick offset style with easy playability and classic Fender tone. With its comfortable "C"-shaped neck, 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard and flexible controls, the Affinity Series Jazzmaster HH is ready to rage on stage or in the studio.
The stylish chrome hardware on this model resists tarnishing.
The comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile of this instrument (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.
The elegant black single-color headstock logo lends a touch of class to this instrument.
