Jazzmaster has been an icon guitar for some time now with its unique looks and unique sound. Jazzmaster guitars are great with pedals especially because of the bass and treble circuit selector that helps accentuate the tones of the pedals being used. Many players of all genres of music use this iconic guitar such as Elvis Costello, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine. Jazzmaster guitars are very versatile instruments.

 Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is it called a Jazzmaster?

Believe it or not, this guitar was designed to appeal to the Jazz players of the time. There never really seemed to be a connection made with the Jazz community and this now iconic Fender model. The Jazzmaster became the go-to guitar during the golden age of surf music in the '60s however. This guitar probably could've been called the Surfmaster but, the Jazzmaster has appealed to many genres of music over the years so I think that Fender did good with their choice of name.

What do the switches on a Jazzmaster do?

There is a Rhythm/Lead switch on the upper horn that if the switch is up(away from the neck) the Rhythm circuit is engaged. Fender explains this setup best, "The two inside wheels on the upper horn next to the slider switch are the circuit's volume and passive tone controls. The wheel nearest the slider switch will set your volume." The important thing to keep in mind when playing in Rhythm mode is that the bridge pickup will be deactivated. You will only get sound out of the neck pickup when the Rhythm circuit is engaged. If you are on the Lead circuit(switch set closest to neck of guitar) you can also use only the neck pickup by using the 3-way selector on the neck pickup. When the Lead circuit is engaged you can use your tone and volume knob as normal and also use the 3-way selector to choose the pickup that you want to use.

Who plays Jazzmasters?

The list is many: Elvis Costello, J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), Kevin Shields and Bilinda Butcher (My Bloody Valentine), Jonny Buckland (Coldplay), Aaron North (Nine Inch Nails), Ric Ocasek (The Cars), Robert Smith (The Cure), Adrian Utley (Portishead), and Thom Yorke (Radiohead) just to name a few.
