If you're looking for the classic Jazzmaster experience, there's big value in the Squier Classic Vibe Late '50s Jazzmaster solidbody electric guitar. Despite its affordable price, it offers more than you may expect, including a real bone nut and Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups.

And as far as playability is concerned, the stout "C"-shaped neck is sure to please. Guitarists at Music Experience have been consistently impressed by Squier's Classic Vibe series, and this Squier Classic Vibe '60s Jazzmaster is no exception.
These Fender-designed single-coil Jazzmaster pickups give you the classic, hot-rocking tone 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 Classic Vibe '60s Jazzmaster keeps that love affair going with a classic “C”-shaped profile, bolt-on maple neck that is instantly comfortable and playable. The 21 narrow tall frets retain the feel of a '50s original. Experience the feel and response of the neck that made so many surf rock players of the early 1950's adopt the Jazzmaster as the genre's go-to electric.
Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Classic Vibe series — hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.
