The 60th Anniversary Jazzmaster’s body is crafted from lightweight alder, producing balanced, resonant tones with plenty of clarity and midrange bite ideal for the versatile musician. The alder tonewood provides a decent amount of sustain, creating bright, sizzling highs, beautifully rounded lows, and a beefy midrange. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing. A vintage-style adjustable bridge and ''floating'' tremolo tailpiece are also added, enhancing string stability and offering classic pitch shifting effects.
Maple Neck & Pau Ferro Fingerboard
This Fender Guitar’s maple neck provides bright tonal characteristics, tightening up the sound and giving it plenty of cut. The maple delivers a powerfully sharp punch when the strings are hit hard, whilst still retaining its clarity to allow each note to sing. The pau ferro fingerboard offers the same fundamental tones as a rosewood fingerboard, while the ''C'' shaped profile provides a smooth playing feel. The pau ferro also provides the Jazzmaster with a warm, soft tone and helps to ‘fur up’ the maple’s natural sound. The neck and fingerboard combination provides this 60th Anniversary guitar with sparkling, sizzling highs, a thick, firm low end, and an open midrange with a snappy attack.
Classic Series 60s Jazzmaster Pickups
This Limited-Edition Jazzmaster is equipped with a set of Classic Series '60s Jazzmaster single-coil pickups, designed to the same specs as the pickups featured on 60’s Jazzmaster to produce a truly vintage tone. Wound to precision for an authentic, traditional tone and performance, these Classic Series pickups offer beautifully clean soundscapes with an edge of snarl and stunning textures. Equipped to both bridge and neck positions, players can deliver a wide range of rich harmonics and throaty sounds, with excellent dynamics and plenty of punch to cut through dense mixes.
Narrow Tall Frets
Another addition to this model are the 21 narrow tall frets, which are mounted on the pau ferro fingerboard and provide incredible comfort when performing slides. Being slightly narrower than standard medium jumbo frets, the narrow tall frets are incredible effective for bending notes and playing chords with superb intonation.
Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut
Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the 60th Anniversary Jazzmaster delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.
