The Fender J. Mascis is a Jazzmaster customized to the specs of Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis. In addition to the unique purple sparkle polyester finish on this Jazzmaster, this model has specs suggested by J. Mascis himself. These include the Adjusto-Matic bridge, which makes action adjustment quick and easy, and the reinforced tremolo arm housing, which gives you more control over your tremolo bar. The Special Design MIJ pickups are vintage reissue, so that there is a bit of retro in this guitar's sound. The classic Jazzmaster 3-position toggle switch and 21 fret design are also maintained here. Like the closely related Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo Jazzmasters, the J. Mascis is being promoted by Fender as a stripped down rock guitar.
