    Lightweight Body

    If you prefer lightweight guitars, you'll love this! A Poplar body gives the Squier FSR Classic Vibe '60s Jazzmaster a forgiving weight, making it an excellent live workhorse without sacrificing tone. This balanced-sounding material ensures robust lows, lively mids and crisp highs — the perfect tonal foundation for the Jazzmaster's chimey-sounding single-coil pickups.

    Comfortable Neck

    A bolt-on Maple neck adheres to the classic Fender formula, giving notes a fast and immediate attack. Shaped to a "C” profile, the Squier Classic Vibe Jazzmaster strikes the perfect balance between a modern and old-school feel.

    The tasteful Laurel fingerboard provides a silky-smooth touch under the fingers too, with the 9.5" fingerboard radius and 'Narrow Tall' frets putting a more contemporary spin on the instrument.

    Fender-Designed Pickups

    The Squier FSR Classic Vibe '60s Jazzmaster achieves its jangly voice from its Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups. With a punchy and articulate character, these medium-output pickups excel with clean amp settings but also sound dynamic and potent with overdrive. The various switches allow you to experiment with different tones and combinations too!

    A Jazzmaster is what it is. Not a fast racing machine, but I want this special sound for recordings. The pickguard color looks awful, so I bought a white one to dress it up decently.

    This Squier JM is a great guitar for it's price point. However IMO the fit and finish on these Indonesian CVs isn't up to par with the previous China made models. My guitar was basically OK, but had gritty frets, super dry fretboard and needed a good setup, there was also some finish issues on the purple body. So after an hour or 2 with fret erasers, lemon oil and toolkit it was much improved, and is now a really nice guitar to play. Plus point are, the pickups sound really good and the vibrato seems to keep all in tune and doesn't rattle. I see no need to upgrade anything on this guitar. It would be good if Andertons could offer an optional extra fettling and setup service for those who can't do it themselves. Overall, at this price, I can't really complain, I've seen Mex Fenders with similar issues.

    i was honestly blow away when i played it. fret board edges were smooth and felt pretty rounded, no high frets no buzzing, good action, decent intonation, not one sharp fret edge! frets were a little rough and neck was a little dry, but nothing a few strokes of a fret eraser and fingerboard oil couldnt fix. will eventually change the trem to an american one because it is a little clunky ( but completely usable). will upgrade electronics when they start to crackle, i dont think i will change the pickups tho. they sound near as makes no difference to an american JM i have. DP and Capt'n werent overplaying how good these are.

    The guitar is great now that I’ve spent some time setting it up. I was surprised at how versatile it is. Plenty of gain coming from the bridge pick up played through a March wall style amp, so I am getting single coil clarity and tone with some good grunt. Playing with the Tone and volume open up other options helping clean up the amp if you’re playing with gain. Good electronics, no noisy pots. Looks stunning. There’s a sparkle to the purple finish. Great quality finish. The scratch plate is pretty tight fitting so you have to be careful not to scratch the neck if you remove it for adding a shim or maintaining the guitar. Middle position has some strat tones which I didn’t know were in the guitar. The neck pickup and rhythm circuit is surprisingly usable. Coming from an Epiphone les Paul custom I’m used to quite a muddy neck tone. This guitar is the opposite. Loads of clarity in the neck position. I also love how resonant the guitar is without being plugged into an amp, makes quiet practice sessions a lot more enjoyable when not plugged into an amp. I expect that any new guitar in this price range would require a set up (strings, nut filing, intonation and action) . Unfortunately this one needed a little more love when it arrived. Out the box the strings had oxidised and needed replacing, the fret board was dirty and really dry, and the frets themselves hadn’t been polished. Whilst the guitar sounded great it was not comfortable to play. I had to put a few hours and a little bit of investment in tools and materials to get this playing comfortably. This is my first jazzmaster and I’m still struggling a bit getting the tremolo set up right. I think the nut still needs some extra filing and I need to lubricate the nut and bridge (anywhere where the strings move) to ensure that the guitar returns to pitch. Those who buy a guitar with a floating bridge like this might want to pay for a set up as it’s time consuming, requires the right tools, and is a bit fiddly. All in al best guitar I’ve opened in the 15 years I’ve been playing. Worth putting the time in getting it set up as I don’t think it’s ready to play straight from the factory. Needing quite an involved set up is the only reason the guitar loses a star.

    Great for the price. The frets are not smooth so will need polishing and the fretboard could use some oil. The bridge and tremolo can buzz a bit on occasion, particularly when playing the low E string. But overall for the price it sounds and plays great. Not too mention it like fabulous in the metallic people with the gold pickguard. I almost decided to buy the 50th Anniversary model instead but the purple sold me on this one instead. Being a bit cheaper also doesn't hurt.
