For musicians yet to test out the stunning offset style and sound of a Jazzmaster, the Squier Classic Vibe 60s Jazzmaster in Sonic Blue is an ideal place to start. With dual-circuit switching onboard, superb single-coil sound and a comfortable feel, this is a guitar of outstanding quality at an affordable price combining vintage aesthetic with modern features that emanate classic style and tone in equal measure.
The Jazzmaster is recognised for its offset waist and asymmetrical-style body. The body is constructed entirely from solid poplar, offering a very lightweight feel that is comfortable to wield onstage. Poplar is well known for being one the most versatile tonewoods, so whether you want to play rock, country, blues or jazz this guitar can handle it all.
One piece of maple is employed in the construction of the neck. With a comfortable "C" shape neck profile you can make seamless transitions as you play. The neck is topped with a smooth Indian Laurel fingerboard which features 21 narrow tall frets for you to explore via the decorative pearloid dot inlays.
The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Jazzmaster is kitted out with a superb pair of Fender-Designed Alnico Single-Coil pickups in the neck and bridge positions. This pickup duo reproduces the iconic Jazzmaster tones, from the thick low ends to sparkling highs. You have full tone control thanks to the flexible onboard dual-circuitry, offering lead and rhythm sounds just like the first Jazzmasters of the late '50s with separate controls for each circuit.
The Classic Vibe 60s Jazzmaster comes with a 6-Saddle Vintage-Style bridge for tuning dependability and fantastic intonation. With a Non-Locking Floating Vibrato, you can express yourself further with flutters, dives and raises to really accentuate your playing. The 1960s-inspired headstock is fitted with reliable Vintage-Style tuning machines, giving you old school looks with modern stability.
