Locking pickup system is a fantastic addition - removes possibility of accidental adjustment in live and studio settings

1 agrees

Pickups are very reactive - desired tone is achieved immediately (as opposed to the tonal "scoop" present amongst many lower-end models)

1 agrees

Requires minimal setup/adjustment out of the box - action, fit and finish exhibit high quality and attention to detail

1 agrees

Tonal possibilities are highly versatile - not as distinctive or genre-specific as Fender's Telecaster and Stratocaster models

Included neck shims seem unnecessary - may lead to undesirable frame warping

2 agree

Included case lacks quality - tends to leave gold flakes on the guitar and is aesthetically displeasing in general

2 agree

Screw thread seating is inconsistent - strings may pop out with excessive bending

The Fender American Vintage '62 Jazzmaster is a high-end reissue of the original Fender Jazzmaster. Like the original Jazzmaster, this reissue has a floating tremolo system, which is conducive to whammy bar work. The tremolo lock that is part of the bridge will help with the tuning issues often inherent in a floating tremolo system. The contours of the body match the specs of the original Jazzmaster models, so that a distinct vintage look is achieved. The volume and tone controls are seperate, as are the lead and rhythm circuits, so that you have ultimate control over the sound of this guitar. There are color options available for the American Vintage '62 Jazzmaster.
