Fender has expanded its Acoustasonic series with a brand new model — based on their ever-edgy Jazzmaster shape! Described as the “most versatile Acoustasonic guitar yet”, this highly-innovative instrument dishes out iconic acoustic voicings and big, nuanced electric guitar tones — easily controlled via a tactile ‘Blend’ knob that lets you seamlessly pivot between the two and discover unique hybrid timbres.
Powered by the acclaimed Fender and Fishman-designed acoustic engine found in the Acoustasonic Tele and Strat, the Jazzmaster’s Tim Shaw-designed ‘Shawbucker’ pickup sets it apart from its cousins— delivering more output for fat electric cleans and even blazing overdrive! Offering a new selection of voices too, the sonic possibilities are almost endless with Fender’s American Acoustasonic Jazzmaster — the ultimate, all-in-one creative tool.
- Acoustic Engine 3-Pickup System — The Acoustasonic Shawbucker, Fishman Matrix under-saddle piezo and internal body sensor pickup work together to provide a wealth of inspiring tones.
