TheĀ Fender Blacktop Jazzmaster HS is a jazz guitar that uses two different styles of pickups for a versatile sound. This is a new addition to the Fender Blacktop collection, and stands out with the use of a humbucking pickup at the bridge for distortion-free clarity and a single-coil Jazzmaster pickup at the neck. The 3-position toggle allows for either pickup to be isolated or for them to both be active together, enabling a variety of tonal qualities easily available during a single performance. The body of the guitar is made of Alder and the rosewood fingerboard is set on a maple neck. The neck plate is a vintage style 4 bolt, and th etruss rod nut is a 3/16 inch adjustable hex. The hardware has a nickel and chrome finish, with black switch tips and a 3-ply pickguard.
