An advanced dimension. The famed Yosemite single-coil pickups are crafted to produce that dynamic, expressive tone, typical of vintage Jazzmasters. Flat-staggered pole pieces are fitted across both pickups for increased output, along with a shellac coating to gift a heightened flexibility to the coil.
Paint your tone to ultimate precision, with the hailed Greasebucket tone circuit. This unique modification equips you with the freedom to sculpt your highs, without adding bass. Emit sparkling clean tones with added delicacy, or rather maintain a distinct, overdriven sound that breathes effortless clarity.
A push-pull tone control opens up limitless, sonic capabilities for players of all genres, adding the neck pickup in any of the three switch positions. Colour your sound with the inclusion of inductors and capacitors to the pickup circuitry, creating resonant peaks and valleys and preventing your tone from becoming muddy. An iconic sound, re-imagined.
Experiment to the limits. The Performer Jazzmaster comes equipped with a six-screw, Strat-style vintage tremolo bridge, in place of the traditional Jazzmaster tailpiece, allowing you to perform incredible vibrato effects in an all-new fashion. Combine the consistency of the Jazzmaster's harmonious voice with the expression of a Strat-style whammy bar. Invention has never been so obtainable.
Timeless. When it comes to playability, few possess the expertise that Fender have acquired over years of masterful guitar production. Much of this is due to the careful selection of high-end tonewoods used across the entirety of Fender's product range - and it doesn't stop at the American Performer series...
