Bringing the Jazzmaster Into the Modern Era
Blending classic single-coil guitar tones with modern player preferences, the Fender American Ultra Jazzmaster represents a performance-focused update to one of the most iconic electric guitars around. Two Fender Ultra Noiseless pickups deliver the classic chime and richness Jazzmaster fans love, while S1 switching gives you the ability to switch between series or parallel modes for even more sonic versatility. The Modern D neck profile with satin finish plays amazingly fast and smooth, sure to appeal to fans of modern, thinner neck profiles. Complete with a bound, compound-radius fretboard for fluid playability, the Fender American Ultra Jazzmaster is an outstanding example of the world's favorite offset electric guitar.
Ultra Noiseless pickups
Various iterations of Fender's noiseless pickup technology have been a huge hit with players, and the American Ultra Jazzmaster is sure to please as well with its pair of Ultra Noiseless single-coil pickups. They serve up the shimmering chime and wide-ranging tonality you expect from classic Jazzmaster pickups. And because they resist the buzz and hum of typical single-coil pickups, you can hit the stage confident that you won't be fighting noise through your whole gig, even if you're playing with high-gain tones.
Supreme sonic versatility
Jazzmasters have always been able to cover a vast sonic range, offering up tones from warm and wooly to sharp, percussive, and biting. The Fender American Ultra Jazzmaster takes this flexibility further with S1 switching, accessible via the master volume control. This switches the Ultra Noiseless pickups between series or parallel operation modes, each offering a distinct sonic character. And speaking of control knobs, the American Ultra Jazzmaster gives you even more tonal control by giving you a tone control for each pickup, as opposed to the traditional master tone control.
Easy-playing compound-radius fretboard
The American Ultra Jazzmaster's performance-driven features extend to the neck in a big way. While its all-maple construction and eye-catching embossed Fender headstock logo look standard enough, run up the fretboard and you'll know there's a lot more going on. This Jazzmaster’s fretboard boasts an easy-playing 10"–14" compound-radius with 21 medium-jumbo frets. Rolled fretboard edges feel especially comfortable, and can make a big difference over long sessions. A Modern “D” profile gives you plenty to wrap your hand around, without feeling bulky or slow. And the neck’s super-slick Ultra Satin finish encourages fast, fluid fretwork. One of our favorite elements of the American Ultra Jazzmaster here at Sweetwater is its tapered neck heel. Play this Jazzmaster and you’ll understand — this expertly sculpted heel gives you easy access to the guitar’s entire fretboard.
