The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazzmaster delivers eye-catching looks with a selection of player-friendly, upscale features. For the celebration of this anniversary, the Squier/Fender design team created this very special instrument to bring advancing players classic performance and style, along with that unique Jazzmaster tone and vibe.

A Body Built for Tone

The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazzmaster features a comfortably lightweight poplar body, for an excellent balance between tonal warmth and brightness. The Jazzmaster's offset body design remains as striking today as it was when Fender debuted the guitar in 1958, and it is still a favorite of players who want to stand out from the pack. The body is topped with a gorgeous gloss finish, available in striking colors.

Fast, Comfortable Neck

The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazzmaster features a hyper-comfortable, C-profile maple neck with a bone nut and a 9.5"-radius, bound, Indian laurel fingerboard in a classic 21-fret configuration. Pearloid block inlays add an extra touch of refinement and a bit of flash to this celebratory instrument.

Classic Tone From Alnico 5

The Gold Series Jazzmaster boasts Fender-designed, Alnico 5 single-coil pickups to deliver the wide tonal range for which the instrument is known. With the Jazzmaster's specially voiced Lead and Rhythm circuits and thumbwheel neck pickup controls, you'll find a huge palette of distinctive tones at your fingertips. From surf to punk and, yes, even to jazz, this 40th Anniversary edition is a stunning example of the tonal versatility of the Jazzmaster design.

Hardware That Gleams

What truly sets the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazzmaster apart is its luxurious look. With gold-plated hardware—from the vintage-style tuning machines to the unique non-locking floating vibrato bridge and tailpiece—a gold anodized aluminum pickguard and control plates, bound fingerboard and an engraved 40th Anniversary neck plate, this is a very special instrument you will treasure for years to come.

Squier guitars have introduced innumerable musicians to the world of Fender designs over the years, and the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazzmaster is a reminder of how important that influence has been. With striking finishes, upscale looks and the full panoply of Jazzmaster tones, this is a guitar that's an obvious choice for any player's collection.
