Overview

Well back into the 1990s and right up to this day, Troy Van Leeuwen has contributed deftly textural guitar work and atmospherics to some of alt-heavy rock's most acclaimed and forward-thinking bands. From the influential '90s alternative of Failure to A Perfect Circle, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Puscifer and others, Van Leeuwen's multi-instrumental expertise has given great color and power to a great deal of very creative rock music.

The Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster is as distinctive as the sounds he wrings from it. Its gloss Oxblood finish with a four-ply red tortoiseshell pickguard is darkly alluring, with the interestingly contrasting touch of two white "witch hat" control knobs. The dual tone circuits (lead, rhythm) use a two-way toggle switch on the upper horn rather than the customary slider switch, and the brass-saddle Mustang bridge is combined with a Jazzmaster tailpiece.

Other features include a maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and heel-end truss rod adjustment, 7.25"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and pearloid block inlays, two American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster single-coil pickups with three-way toggle switching, and vintage-style tuners.

Hardshell case included.

    Comments about Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    I usually play Teles and this was my first JM. Before I played it I had the techs at GC Grand Rapids, MI make a new Mammoth Ivory nut and set up. Once I got it, it played great! Tone was spot on as soon as I played. These pickups make this guitar. Overall it feels, plays, and sounds like a much more expensive guitar.

        Comments about Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

        I've owned this guitar for over a year now, and it's my favorite in the guitar stable. It has the American made 65 pickups which have that classic Jazzmaster sound. The bridge pickup is a little more trebly than I like, but the neck, middle, and rhythm selections are awesome. The tremolo stays in tune just fine once your strings are worn in a bit. I've never had a problem with strings slipping out of the saddles or off the side of the fretboard.
        It's from the Mexican factory, but let's be real. The body is cut on the same machines as a USA Fender and the pickups are USA-made. The neck is bound with block inlays and has a matching color headstock. This would cost a bundle on a USA model, but here you get all these upgraded features for a grand less than a USA model.
        Two things could be improved. The bridge. The 7.5" radius fretboard has a relatively large curve and the Mustang bridge tries to mimic that, but isn't exact. As a result I find my low E can get a rattle or buzz if it's not set just right. They say the Mustang bridge on this guitar is an improvement over the ones found on USA models, but I think it could still be better (see Mastery bridge).
        Second minor problem is the volume knob. It is really quiet 1 thru 6 on the dial. Usable volume doesn't kick in til about 7. So the range is really from 7 to 10, rather than a smooth taper 1-10.
        Other than that, I would highly recommend this guitar. There's no reason to spend on a USA model (that also has a problematic bridge) when this guitar has the same electronics, unless it is the color you don't like.

            Comments about Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar about four months ago now and I absolutely love it. I had mainly considered this model and the american vintage while looking for a jazzmaster and ended up choosing this one because it had the same hardware, electronics, and pickups as the american vintage at a much cheaper price, and in my opinion looked even better than the av. I also own a Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom and Explorer 120, and this guitar holds it's own with those even being made at the Mexican factory as a more budget guitar. This guitar is a great deal, and you get a lot for what you pay.

            I was expecting to like the guitar mainly for cleans, but it sounds fantastic for classic rock and even metal along the lines of Mastodon, The Sword, etc. The pickups are also super versatile with each of the four positions sounding very different. I got it thinking I'd use it for one particular sound and was very happily surprised. Also, this is the first guitar that I own with a trem, and I've never liked trems on other guitars I've played before so I wasn't expecting to use this one. After playing with this trem a bit I found it was very usable and also relatively stable. The only changes I made to the guitar was swapping the mustang bridge for a Mastery bridge and swapping the the strap buttons for Schaller strap locks. The stock bridge was good, but I prefer the Mastery. Other than that, everything was great stock.

            Overall, the finish, frets, binding, and setup are pretty great. The finish looks amazing in person, the pictures online that I've seen really don't do it justice. It goes great with the block inlays, binding, and tortoise shell pickguard. Fender and TVL did a great job with this design. The neck profile feels nice, and it's probably the lightest guitar I own making it the most comfortable to play.
