With its stripped-down control scheme the stylish Limited Edition American Special Jazzmaster Bigsby is ready to rock. In an uncharacteristic touch, the Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece replaces the standard Jazzmaster bridge, adding expressive shimmer to your playing. The comfortable modern 9.5” fingerboard radius is ideal for any playing style while the Pure Vintage ’65 Jazzmaster pickups retain the clear tones and edgy snarl of their inspiration. White witch hat knobs, modern tuning machines and a black/white/black pickguard complete the ensemble for classic Fender style. Includes a “Limited Edition” neck plate.
