Overview

With the American Performer series, Fender brings a whole new level of accessibility to quality, Made in USA guitars, with redesigned pickups, fresh hardware, colorful finishes and some subtle rethinking. The American Performer Jazzmaster stands out as a reimagining of Fender's 1958 flagship design.

Fender American Performer Jazzmaster contours

The original offset, dressed for success

Starting with Fender's groundbreaking 1958 offset body design, a look that still has echoes of the future 60 years later, the American Performer Jazzmaster starts by dressing the guitar in a variety of striking finishes. Available in classic looks with 3-color sunburst and vintage white, this Jazzmaster also comes in Fender's shiny new penny finish and in a subtle satin Lake Placid blue, offset by cream pickup covers and a tortoiseshell-pattern pickguard.

Fender American Performer Jazzmaster electronics and finish

Sure, they call it "jazz"

Despite the name, the Jazzmaster found favor across multiple genres, from surf to punk to alternative. Besides the look, the distinctive tone of Fender's flat-bobbin single coils had a lot to do with it, bringing a subtly different tone to the table. For the American Performer Jazzmaster, Fender revisited and redesigned these to create the new Yosemite Jazzmaster pickup. They also added Fender's unique Greasebucket tone circuit that lets you roll back treble without getting muddy, for tones that are mellow, but still speak clearly.

Fender American Performer Jazzmaster headstock and tuners

The shiny stuff

Besides redesigning the pickups, Fender took a good look at the American Performer Jazzmaster's hardware. Adding the Strat Synchronized Tremolo bridge was a no-brainer, as it's the standard in "whammy" bridges with six-and-a-half decades of testimonials. They also added ClassicGear split-post tuning machines for increased tuning stability. As a final touch, the oversized headstock proudly carries a '70s-style silver Fender logo.
