The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Jazz Tele Electric Guitar takes the solid playability of the Tele' and mixes things up with some left-field appointments to create a Fender model unlike any that you've seen before. Whatever style of music you perform, the Jazz Tele' is a genre-crossing dream that looks awesome. For those who want to stand out, it must be the 2018 Limited Edition Jazz Tele.
Awesome Tele' body
The Jazz Tele' is shaped to the legendary Telecaster body shape, a solid single-cutaway that produces a robust and forthright tone. From the moment that you pick up the Jazz Tele, you get that sense of freedom that encourages you to play with passion. The single-cutaway allows your fretting hand to reach the highest frets with ease.
Fender has employed ash as the tonewood, which gives the Jazz Tele a warm tonal foundation to play with. The lower-mids bounce along nicely and the highs sing sweetly with a confident twang. The eye-catching paintwork is protected by a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer that allows the finish to age gracefully, and allows the wood to breathe and resonate freely.
Lightning fast neck
Fitted to the body is a cool maple neck, which is shaped to the modern "deep C" American Original Jazzmaster neck to encourage speed and precision. The satin finish along the back of the neck minimises stickiness to keep the feel fresh and free.
Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 21 narrow, tall frets that are perfect for executing seamless string bends. The 9.5-inch fingerboard radius sits nicely in the hand, allowing you to fret chords, shift position, and move around with ease. White pearloid dot position inlays guide your way in fine fashion.
The Jazz Tele is equipped with a pair of Pure Vintage '65 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups, infusing the guitar with Fender's legendary tones. These alnico V magnet-powered pickups are combined with enamel coated wire to deliver glassy cleans and searing highs. The flush-mounted pole pieces on each pickup ensures that volume and output remain smooth and consistent across every string. If it's classic mid-'60s Fender tones that you're after, then these beauties have you covered. Control comes in the form of master volume and master tone controls, as well as a three-position pickup selector switch.
The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Jazz Tele Electric Guitar is home to an interesting bridge system, the Jazzmaster/Jaguar bridge with nickel-plated brass Mustang saddles set to a 9.5-inch radius. The bridge secures each string to optimise intonation and sustain, whilst the vintage-style floating tremolo with tremolo lock button and screw-in tremolo arm affords precise vibrato control. The headstock has pure vintage single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most demanding of performances.
Each model is supplied with an elite moulded case, and strung with Fender USA strings to get you off to a flying start. The 2018 Limited Edition Jazz Tele Electric Guitar won't be around for long, so act quickly to avoid disappointment.
