The Fender American Professional Jazzmaster solidbody electric guitar takes a classic design and perfects it. It starts with a comfortable offset alder body. Alder is largely responsible for the classic "Fender sound," and this guitar's overwound single-coil pickups take that sound to new heights with loads of hot-rodded vintage-inspired warmth. Experience great tone at all volume settings, thanks to a treble bleed circuit. Wrapping your hand around this guitar's maple-topped Deep "C" neck is pure joy, and its narrow-tall frets make bending and chording up the neck effortless. This guitar's redesigned bridge and tremolo take stability to a whole new level. The Fender American Professional Jazzmaster sets a new standard for solidbody electric guitars.
The V-Mod pickups in the Fender American Professional Jazzmaster were developed by Michael Frank-Braun, the same guy who created the legendary pickups for the Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster. These overwound single-coil pickups are brimming with vintage-inspired warmth, and they churn out punchy high-output tones by the truckload. By virtue of the American Professional Jazzmaster's treble bleed circuit, they sound good no matter where you set your volume knob.
The Fender American Professional Jazzmaster is a treat to play, largely because of its cozy Deep C-shaped neck. This is a thick neck — somewhere between a Modern C- and U-shaped profile — and its increased mass yields an incredibly natural feel, as well as excellent sustain. And wait until you experience the fast-playing maple fingerboard with narrow-tall frets. Bending notes and playing chords high on the neck have never been easier.
It's clear that the updated bridge and tremolo on the Fender American Professional Jazzmaster were designed with stability in mind. We gave this guitar quite a workout here at Hiendguitar, and its brass saddles kept its strings firmly in place. And the screw-in arm makes dialing in your ideal arm tension easy.
