Overview

The Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special is an electric guitar that updates Fender's iconic Jazzmaster model with some thoroughly modern improvements: Hotter pickups, a redesigned Adjusto-Matic bridge with floating tremolo tailpiece, a 9.5" fingerboard radius and an improved neck pocket with increased back-angle for improved stability and sustain. The Classic Player Jazzmaster guitar's tremolo plate has been moved closer to the bridge to increase break angle and sustain. A screw-in tremolo arm increases stability and control when "twang-dipping".

Includes a gig bag.

So, I bought mine off an older gentleman whose wife was making him sell guitars. He sold it to me for $600. I'm not joking when I tell you that this is the BEST $600 I have ever spent. I would easily have paid double to for this beauty! I've been playing for about 15 years and have several nice guitars (Gibson Les Paul Studio, Big Apple Strat, 1970s Strat), but none of them compare to the Jazzmaster. It's seriously all I ever want to play now. I'm in an indie/emo/alt rock band and this guitar gets me the perfect sounds. Plus everyone loves the way it looks on stage. It plays like a dream and the tones are unbelievable. Seriously, if you want an amazing guitar for your buck, do yourself a favor and get one. Don't worry about the Mexican make either, because mine is perfect to the last detail. GO GET ONE!

I ordered one of these online, and it was shipped directly to me. It sounds great and plays great, however there is a buzz coming from the bridge. Out of the box, it came with a couple loose saddles. Is it too much to ask that a guitar of this price arrive mechanically sound? You decide.

Great Buy

By guitarguyCQ

from Wheaton, Illinois

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

this is a great guitar for the price. I have no complaints whatsoever. I fell in love with this little beauty in august 2008. I bought it and have no regrets about doing so. The pickups were really hot at first, but have mellowed out quite a bit, so I get a tone i really like. You can't go wrong with this guitar, not to mention, it will be the envy of all your guitar playing friends! Definitely invest in this electric!

What a Surprise!

By Cindy

from Parsons WV

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

These guitars are quite hard to find, if you're thinking of getting one now's the time. I ordered mine, a display model, from the West Coast because no one had them in stock in the summer of '10. What a gorgeous guitar! The sound is incredible! I have an American Tele and an American Stat and this is my favorite guitar, believe it or not. It feels like no other guitar and plays like a dream and the sounds are endless. It does have that woody sound, you can feel it against yourself as you play. Love it!

best guitar purchase

By OffsetBodyFan

from HB, CA

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

I love this guitar. It was almost perfect out of the box. After a couple of quick tweaks, I had excellent intonation, and the guitar stays in tune. The sound and quality of craftsmanship far exceeded my expectation for a MIM fender. I would recommend this guitar to anyone interested in Jazz, Blues, Surf, 60s Pop, Alternative/Indy rock, and country.

Met my Expectations and beyond

By Joseph Coulter

from San Diego

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

I just picked this guitar up, and man! the tone is amazing. the dual humbuckers give it a smooth sound and you can do so much with this guitar. One thing to watch out for when first unpackaging it is to check if all the strings are in the right groove on the bridge. during shipping they can get dislocated. Anyways, i highly reccomend this guitar to anyone! its a great buy and i love it

Gregat bang for your buck

By Jose Gallegos

from Midlothian, VA

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

This is a phenomenal deal! Well built guitar and very versatile. Pros are the set up from factory is good out of the box. Great gig bag and good floating trem. The rhythm settings are rather dark, but usable. The lead settings are the bomb! New hot pick ups are great, but remember they are single coils and that equals some hum on position one and three. The looks Are killer! All in all a super deal. It's a keeper.

This will not disappoint

By CJ

from Connecticut

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

Pros: Dead sexy, plays great, sounds awesome, is weighted really nice, sits perfectly, came set up perfectly and it's a jazzmaster. Did I mention it's freakin beautiful. Sunburst is never my first choice in colors but the finish on this is really nice looks great with the great cream soap bar pickups. Cons: Comes with a soft gig bag, so if you want to look after it you'll probably want to buy a hardshell case for it. Other than that, I can't think of any. If you're buying a Jazzmaster, you probably searched for it and know what you're getting. This will not disappoint.

Great features and looks, but not for everyone

By John Johnson

from Anaheim, CA

Comments about Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Electric Guitar:

I gave it 4 stars because for me 5 stars = absolute perfection. For me, this Jazzmaster guitar neck fit my hand like a glove but, Let me describe the pickups - the bridge has a similarly bright "swirl" sound to the Strat bridge pickup with a slight reverb feel. The neck pickup and neck/bridge (1st and 2nd position) sound mostly similar, but the 1st position has a ballsier contrast between lows and highs. The Jazzmaster also has less sustain, but it has such a distinct mellow tone that lends itself to blues, jazz, and surf when it's played cleanly. I wouldn't recommend this guitar for lower tunings except for drop tunings - the higher strings wont sit well in the saddles when tuned down. You definitely need to check this quality MIM guitar out and play.
