Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics—this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.
Why We Love This
For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to contemporary features, Fender created the Vintera ‘60s Jazzmaster Modified.
For modern tones, Fender re-voiced the pair of single-coil Jazzmaster pickups, kicking things up a bit by increasing the output. The warm, smooth-sounding neck pickup is balanced by the bright, cutting bridge pickup.
The “Modern C”-shaped neck has a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets for modern playing feel. An Adjusto-matic bridge is paired to Jazzmaster floating tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability.
Other features include the classic lead/rhythm circuit, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate
