In a not-so-subtle twist to a tried-and-test formula, Fender has launched a trio of Jazzmasters with all-rosewood necks and headstocks.
These limited-edition offsets have one-piece rosewood necks – with the stripe running along the back – and headstocks. And rather than the usual decals, the brand has opted to engrave both the “Fender” and “Jazzmaster” logos onto the headstock. These versions come in three finishes: Surf Green, Olympic White and Shell Pink.
Otherwise, these Jazzmasters sport identical specs to its siblings in the American Professional range. These include two V-Mod single-coil pickups, an alder body, and a three-way pickup selector switch in place of the vintage-style rhythm/lead circuits.
In our review of the American Professional Jazzmaster, we said the guitar “sounds as pretty as it looks, and if you aren’t a die-hard Jazzmaster obsessive, there’s much to love”.
The new all-rosewood Fender Jazzmasters retail for $/£1,749.
