What Reidys say...
"Mexico: spicy food, hot weather, wonderful tequila. Another thing they do very well in Mexico is building a very high quality line of Fender guitars at stunningly reasonable prices. This is the new Player series, which has replaced the old Mexican Standard. Fender have made subtle improvements to the pickups and hardware, as well as adding a load of new finishes such as Sage Green and Buttercream. Don't worry if you are a traditionalist though, the old favourites like White and Sunburst are still there. Onto the pickups, the updated designs offer everything that has made Fender the go-to for everything from chimey, bright clean tones to percussive, tight overdrives. These guitars are built to offer versatility, easy playability and fantastic quality and they deliver on everything and more. Come in and try one today!
The Jazzmaster. The Master of Jazz. Known for its complex array of knobs and switches.... or is it? This Player Series does away with the frilly extras of the originals and refines everything to the bare essentials. What we are left with is the traditional quirky, offset body design and unique tremolo arrangement, which are paired with the less traditional humbuckers (with push/pull pot so you can get single-coil tones too), delivering a clear, powerful tone that makes this one of the most versatile Jazzmaster models around. In more recent years, the Jazzmaster has been adopted by the more alternative community, and with the fresh colour palettes offered here, this Player Jazzmaster retains the look as well as the feel of this classic Fender model.

- Alder body with gloss finish
- Two Player Series humbucking pickups
- Push/pull pot to coil-split pickups
- “Modern C"-shaped neck profile
- 9.5"-radius fingerboard
Designed for authentic Fender tone—with a bit of an edge—our Player Series pickups keep a foot in the past while looking to the future.
The vintage-style tremolo bridge can be used to create pitch effects ranging from subtle to radical, letting you add a cool personal touch to your music.
The push/pull tone control selects the outside coil of the humbucking bridge pickup, unlocking classic single-coil sounds.
Adding another fret lets you bend the highest D up to an E, giving you access to four octaves of musical possibilities.
