The 'Jazzmaster' electric guitars have existed since it was first released in 1958, and it began to be loved by Surf Music Guitarists in the 1960's, but fell out of fashion during the 1970's. But in the 1990's with the GRUNGE scene, this style guitar become the classic icon of that genre. Grunge Bands like 'Nirvana' (Kurt played Jaguar's - same shape different pickups), 'Smashing Pumpkins', 'Sonic Youth' have made the 'Jazzmaster' shaped guitar their staple for all-out grungy dirty guitar tones!

“like outgoing tracer”

By: Dirk on 16 January 2020
Might have found “my guitar” with this one. I am a newbie so if my terminology is wrong laugh with me ok? Really comfortable to hold and play. Practice is inviting and easy to overrun alloted time. The body allows relaxed shoulders and arms and somehow the neck is effortless to fret. For me this is essential as some guitars actually hurt me to play. With this one just sit and let your arms drop naturally with a slight extension to your fretting arm and well, annoy the neighbours! Through a Nu-x mighty lite bt (from AG) tones range from nice steel string and even classicalish through to a distant, airy, distinct sound, “separated” if you will. Roll the knobs and notes go out with a warm luminosity like outgoing tracer (yeah yeah) roll again and distort and there is filth that would make a pig blush. Really glad to protect this one in a hard case - I want to wear it out not break it lol ! So yes I am very happy and do not hesitate to say give this one a go.

Great value!

P90’s, metallic white paint and an oiled neck for $159? Yep bought it on sale, and If I new it was going to be this good, $259 would not have been a problem. Great voice, singing lead( grungemaster it is not only), great string tension and note articlulation. Great guitar whatever your disposition.

So happy and lovin' my new GM!

Just amazing buy - for the price I can't see anyone getting more guitar for the price. And delivered interstate within 20 hrs of order!! Yup, on my doorstep the day after purchase. Thank-you Artist. I'm a very happy camper.

Worth all the hype...

Guys, knocked it out of the park. By far, the best bang for buck guitar I've owned. I love the tone, feel, look, it's all just so pro, and yet the price isn't. Amazing!
