The coolest, most interesting, and under-rated guitars made by the fender guitar company. Though not a guitar for the masses, like the telecaster or stratocaster, the jazzmaster is superior in so many aspects (tone, playability, design, versatility, etc.)
The jazzmaster has acquired a cult following proving that the instrument was only meant for only the coolest guitar players and collectors such as J Mascic (Dinosaur Jr.), Tom Verlaine (Television), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Belinda Butcher and Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), and other super talented guitarists.
