V-Mod Jazzmaster pickups deliver hot, vintage-inspired tone
The V-Mod pickups in the Fender American Professional Jazzmaster were developed by Michael Frank-Braun, the same guy who created the legendary pickups for the Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster. These overwound single-coil pickups are brimming with vintage-inspired warmth, and they churn out punchy high-output tones by the truckload. By virtue of the American Professional Jazzmaster’s treble bleed circuit, they sound good no matter where you set your volume knob.
Eminently playable Deep “C” neck with narrow-tall frets
The Fender American Professional Jazzmaster is a treat to play, largely because of its cozy Deep C-shaped neck. This is a thick neck — somewhere between a Modern C- and U-shaped profile — and its increased mass yields an incredibly natural feel, as well as excellent sustain. And wait until you experience the fast-playing rosewood fingerboard with narrow-tall frets. Bending notes and playing chords high on the neck have never been easier.
Improved bridge and tremolo for increased stability
It’s clear that the updated bridge and tremolo on the Fender American Professional Jazzmaster were designed with stability in mind. We gave this guitar quite a workout here at Sweetwater, and its brass saddles kept its strings firmly in place. And the screw-in arm makes it easy to dial in your ideal arm tension.
