The Fender American Performer Jazzmaster Electric Guitar hails from Corona, California, bringing with it that laid back So-Cal style. Borrowing classic offset style and the awesome playability that comes with it, this model benefits from some carefully considered adaptations that make it ideal for performers. Each one is supplied with a deluxe gig bag to encourage you to get out and play as soon as it arrives.

Cool Jazzmaster style

The Fender American Performer Jazzmaster is shaped to the offset waist body profile that was originally designed to accommodate guitarists in jazz ensembles back in the day. Whether playing seated or standing, the Jazzmaster is designed with balance at the core to make it a delight to perform with. Built using alder, the body produces a balanced tonal palette, whilst the ergonomically designed curves establish a figure-hugging feel. Polyurethane provides protection against unwanted blemishes to allow the lush paintwork to age gracefully.

Modern "C" profile

Connected to the body is a smooth maple neck, which is carved to the modern "C" profile that allows it to sit sweetly in the hand. The modest 25.5-inch scale length lends itself well to the consistent feel across the strings, whilst promoting an articulate response from each note. The satin polyurethane finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which yields warmer note from each one of the 22 jumbo frets. The curve of the 9.5-inch fingerboard radius makes it a breeze to execute intricate technique such as string bends and two-hand tapping with flawless accuracy.

Tonal versatility

The American Performer Jazzmaster boasts Fender's Yosemite single-coils, which are designed to maximise tonal potential with a richly diverse palette. The elaborate tone circuitry normally associated with Jazzmaster's has been swapped out for a straightforward three-way pickup selector switch, master volume pot and master tone pot with Greasebucket circuitry. The Greasebucket circuitry allows highs to be rolled-off without a drop in gain for beefy mid to low-end tones.

Hardware upgrades

The American Performer Jazzmaster is home to masterfully crafted ClassicGear tuning machines. Each one is individually anchored with a nut of the front of the headstock and endowed with an astonishing 18:1 gear ratio to give them outstanding performance. No matter how enthusiastically you rock out you can rest assured that adjustments can be executed with the smoothest action. The 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo - more commonly seen on a Stratocaster - affords seamless vibrato control whilst optimising intonation and sustain. Everything about this model is geared towards no-nonsense performance and it is sure to win over many a fan.
