Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Black PF
The Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster Special Black with Pau Ferro fingerboard gives you the looks and style of a classic Jazzmaster, with modern appointments to satisfy the needs of the 21st century player.
The offset waist body was originally designed to ensure this guitar was comfortable to play when seated, making it perfect for jazz players of the past, and now makes this guitar instantly recognisable. These days, the Jazzmaster's incredible sustain, tonal versatility, raw power, comfortable playability, and unique design continues to make it a go to model for players across many musical genres.
The body has been crafted using alder, a tonewood that have been a favourite of Fender's for many decades, thanks to its exquisite balance of tones from warm lows to searing highs. Fitted to the body is the adjusto-matic bridge with vintage-style "floating" tremolo tailpiece and tremolo lock button. The Jazzmaster is hailed for its excellent sustain, and the bridge/tailpiece combo along with the generous scale length plays a huge part in this. The bridge/tailpiece partnership upholds intonation with absolute precision, making changes the string action easy, and resetting intonation very simple.
Fitted to the body is a sublime maple neck, which has been shaped to the "C" shape profile that gives it a substantial feel in the hand that yields a fast-playing feel. The gloss urethane finish along the back of the neck prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from affecting manoeuvrability or playability, so that you may glide up and down the neck effortlessly.
The Classic Player Jazzmaster Special comes fitted with a pair of Special Design hot single-coil Jazzmaster pickups in the neck and bridge positions. One of the Jazzmaster's notable features is the pickup circuitry, which features a "roller" thumbwheel and slide switch.
The slide switch selects between two different pickup circuit options: "lead" and "rhythm". In the lead position, the tone and volume knobs, and the 3-position pickup selector switch control the guitar’s tone. In the rhythm position, only the neck pickup is active, and the volume and tone are controlled by the two thumbwheels. Therefore, you can effectively set up two different settings within the guitar itself, to quickly switch between rhythm and lead tones. To say this arrangement is versatile would be a massive understatement.
