  • Highlights

    Medium Jumbo Frets
    Medium Jumbo Frets

    Not too short, not too tall. Not too wide, not too narrow. On a guitar fingerboard, medium jumbo frets are the "Goldilocks" size—just right for any sound and playing style.

    9.5" Fingerboard Radius
    9.5" Fingerboard Radius

    The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument’s modern 9.5" fingerboard radius is slightly more flattened than a vintage-style radius, but still with enough arc to provide a natural and notably comfortable fretting-hand feel, and to make bending notes easier.

    Adjusto-Matic™ Bridge with Vintage-Style Tremolo
    Adjusto-Matic™ Bridge with Vintage-Style Tremolo

    For notable string placement and tuning stability, this instrument features an Adjusto-Matic bridge, along with a vintage-style "floating" tremolo tailpiece and tremolo lock button for an added touch of original-era authenticity.

    Special Design Hot Jazzmaster Pickups
    Special Design Hot Jazzmaster Pickups

    For hotter sound with more output than traditional Jazzmaster warmth, this amped-up Classic Player model features two powerfully voiced Special Design Hot single-coil Jazzmaster pickups.

    Improved Neck Angle
    Improved Neck Angle

    For optimal bridge and tremolo performance, this Classic Player model actually improves on the original models with a slightly more pronounced neck angle produced by a new neck pocket cut.

    Tremolo Plate Closer to Bridge
    Tremolo Plate Closer to Bridge

    Along with a more pronounced neck angle, bridge and tremolo performance on this instrument are improved by moving the tremolo plate slightly closer to the bridge. This increases the string-break angle for more stable string placement, and reduces the string length behind the bridge to lessen or eliminate unwanted sympathetic vibrations.
