Fender Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster
Fender redesigns one of their classic guitars and releases the Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster, featuring an okoume body.
This guitar is part of the new spring season instruments that Fender Custom Shop recently unveiled.
Unique to this limited edition instrument is the use of okoume wood for the body. Okoumé is a special lightweight wood used mostly on boats and aircrafts. On guitars, it is known to sonically behave like maple, while being noticeably lighter.
The use of Okoume on the Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster will make the instrument lighter and more convenient to play. The okoume body is reinforced and beautified by a flame maple top that is wrapped in a honey blond finish that highlights the natural top grains.
The neck of this guitar is made using flame maple, carved into a mid '60s oval "C" profile. It has a scale length of 25.5", a fingerboard radius of 9.5" and a nut width of 1/65". Fender Custom Shop equipped this guitar with a rosewood fretboard in keeping with traditional Jazzmaster builds. The guitar has 21 frets with mother of pearl dot inlays.
Although the pickups look as big as humbuckers, the tone of this guitar are captured by two Single-Coil Jazzmaster pickups. Controls include a three-way toggle switch for selecting the pickups you want to use, and it has a 2-position selector that lets you pick between lead and rhythm tone circuits.
The hardware on this guitar are all finished in Gold to match the finish. This includes the Adjusto-matic bridge, the vintage style "floating" tremolo tailpiece and the tremolo lock button. Protecting the top area from harsh players and at the same time adding to the appeal of the guitar is its gold anodized aluminum pickguard.
The MSRP for the Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster is $7,000. For more information, you can visit Fender.
