Ever since it`s introduction in 1961, Jazzmaster has established itself as the king of renegades and alternative rock. It reigns supremely off the beaten path and still represents a guitar for the bold and daring. Lee Ranaldo of the Sonic Youth is one of the players who embraced the Jazzmaster and never looked back. Today, Fender honors his work with a signature guitar. This Jazzmaster comes with a solid alder body paired with a solid maple neck. Bridge on this model is an adjust-o-matic with a floating tremolo tailpiece. In front of this vintage-styled bridge section, Fender installs a pair of active "Wide Range" humbuckers. Maple neck is bolted to the body, equipped with a C contour and topped with a 21-fret fingerboard made of rosewood.
