Fender American Professional Jazzmaster RW in Candy Apple Red

Description

The Fender Professional Jazzmaster has the modern technology and build-quality combined with the vintage style and tone you'd want from an offset guitar like this. With Michael Frank-designed Single-coil Jazzmaster pickups, a fantastic fret design that makes bending a breeze and a comfortable tapered neck for even better playing comfort.

The Rosewood fretboard also gives you a bit more warmth and depth of tone than Maple would.

Fender Jaguar vs Jazzmaster - An American Pro Series Shootout

Professional

The American Professional range has replaced the American Standards. Made in America with high-end hardware and each one comes with an Elite hardshell case.

Pickups

The single-coils on the Professional Jazzmaster were designed by Michael Frank for vintage Jazzmaster sounds. The bridge has a lot of bite while the neck is a little warmer sounding, with a touch of that lovely Jazzmaster grit.

The American Professional models also have the Treble Bleed Circuit which keeps the trebles pronounced, even when turning the volume down.

Neck Shape

The neck shape is the new Deep C profile which is a tapered neck. This means it’s thinner at the headstock end where you play chords and may want to get your thumb over the top to fret the E-String. The neck flattens out the higher up you go to make faster playing a bit easier and a bit more fluid.

Frets

The Narrow-Tall frets make bending a little bit easier as they don’t provide as much friction or resistance as vintage frets do. And because they’re slightly narrower, it gives the actually fret spacing a little more room. It’s an incremental change, but every little helps…

Here's what Fender say about Jazzmaster

Originally intended for sophisticated jazz guitarists, the Jazzmaster was quickly embraced by musicians attracted to its left-of-center looks and fat sound. A direct descendent of the guitar that powered underground music from the late-‘60s to today, the American Professional Jazzmaster is ready to lend its unique sound to your playing. An elegant model with flexible electronics and a rich voice, the Jazzmaster’s introduction in 1958 marked the first time a rosewood fingerboard was used on a Fender instrument. Thanks to its effortless playing feel and ergonomic offsetwaist body, the Jazzmaster has powered infinite musical genres, including surf rock, gospel, new wave and indie rock, among others.

Developed by longtime pickup guru Michael Frank, creator of the renowned Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster® Pickups, the brand-new V-Mod Jazzmaster pickups kick out hot, vintage inspired tone with plenty of punch and definition. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit. The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings
accurately and play perfectly intonated chords. The improved tremolo and bridge incorporate a screw-in arm and brass Mustang saddles that stabilize the strings while adding a touch of sonic zip to your tone.
