NEW - They call it show business for a reason—you have to make a visual splash, so we made something you’ve never seen before, the limited-edition Jazz Tele. Was it made for surf, punk, jazz or country? Who cares—play whatever music you want on it and it’ll be able to keep up, thanks to the vintage inspired sound, modern feel and sensational aesthetics. Strong and dense, with a striking grain pattern, ash is classic Fender tone wood. Notably resonant, it offers clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end.
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way. Combining a modern 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard, narrow-tall frets and a vintage Jazzmaster profile gives this instrument a comfortable fret-hand feel while making it easier to bend notes without fretting out. These period-correct single-coil pickups have the iconoclastic clean-and-clear vintage-style tone, edgy snarl and undeniable texture that made the Jazzmaster an underground favorite.
Engineered for ultra-stable performance, the American Professional Jazzmaster bridge features brass Mustang saddles that keep the strings where they belong and a pop-in arm that won’t fall out. A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, as well as being an authentic original-era Fender design element.
