You've got an iconic, offset Jazzmaster body. An instantly recognisable tone. A famed Fender feel. And style that's going to turn heads for decades to come. That's certainly something you want to protect. Fender knows your new sidekick is your sonic baby, and that it needs a safe place to rest when you're out on the rare occasion doing something unmusical. It also needs security when going from venue to venue, and the rehearsal room to the studio. So, to combat these potential problems. Fender have included a premium Black Tweed hardshell case with a plush red interior that features body-hugging contours to keep your Jazzmaster firmly in place. No need to worry - Fender's got your back.
First introduced at the 1958 NAMM Show with a great deal of chrome and controls, the Jazzmaster was originally designed for traditional jazz musicians. However, it soon found itself embraced by reverb-drenched surf guitarists in the '60s, lip-curling punks in the '70s, and legions of alt-indie from the late '80s onward.
Fender's first dual-circuit instrument - the Jazzmaster provided a new level of versatility. While the traditional wide and flat pickups produced a broad tonality, with less bite and a subtler attack than most single-coil pickups. A first choice among players worldwide, there is nothing that can come close to the natural comfort, remarkable tonal versatility, and distinct character the Jazzmaster offers.
