    Re: Jazzmaster Opinions

    i have a AV '65 Jazzmaster and had absolutely zero issues with the bridge. So YMMV.
    But I had played cheaper Jazzmasters in the store, and those bridget had issues (rattles, strings jumping out etc.).


    Concerning sound: the typical response is "the jazzmaster is a surf guitar". But that's just a very limited view.

    This is to me a typical clean jazzmaster sound.

    But, this guitar is also very good in creating harmonic sound structures with fuzz and/or reverb or delay.
    They have some kind of extra harmonics other guitars just don't have.
    They are really really good with pedals.

    It's not a coincidence that indie/post-rock/shoegaze bands use it for their soundscapes.
    And it's also not a coincidence that soms grunge/alternative rock bands like it.

    Bands using a Jazzmaster: Ryan Adams, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Wilco, Incubus, Paramore, Afghan Whigs, Dinoraur Jr., Sonic Youth, The Neighbourhood, The Ventures, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Cars, Paramore, Radiohead
