PRESS RELEASE: Fender has announced new versions of its four most venerable guitars: the Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazzmaster and Jaguar.

Fender Blacktop Jazzmaster HS

The Blacktop Jazzmaster HS presents you with one of our most sonically powerful Jazzmaster models, with value at your fingertips like never before.

The Jazzmaster single-coil neck pickup and humbucking bridge pickup, both designed by Duncan, deliver the high-gain power of today’s most aggressive tones; other distinctive touches include skirted black amp knobs and a three-way toggle switch rather than the usual barrage of Jazzmaster controls.

Features include an alder body, maple neck, 9.5″ rosewood fingerboard, 21 medium jumbo frets, gloss urethane finish, and chrome hardware.
