It’s a case of little changes coming together to make a big difference here. The Jazzmaster is made of a sturdy alder body with a bolt-on maple neck and maple fingerboard, enhanced by the all-rounder deep “C” neck shape and new rolled fretboard edges. It’s a supreme addition, making transition up and down the neck that bit smoother.
Things only get better with the Super Natural satin neck finish, doing its part to keep your fretting hand moving freely without sticking as you might find with a gloss layer.
Panorama Tremolo system
Vibrato is a huge draw for the Jazzmaster and it’s been improved for the American Pro II. The Panorama tremolo system drastically increases vibrato range, allowing for the reach of a dramatic Strat style dive on top of the classic Jazzmaster warble.
No doubt, the original V-Mod pickups sounded fantastic. But Fender have yet again raised the bar, enhancing them to deliver even more articulation and sweeter harmonics. The V-Mod II single coils designed specifically for the Jazzmaster are beautifully chimey and well-defined.
You’re still getting classic Jazzmaster versatility thanks to lead and rhythm circuit controls, as well as thumbwheel volume and tone dials when your set the pickups into series mode – essentially recreating a thick humbucker punch.
