The Fender Jazzmaster has a unique look and an even more distinctive sound. Made famous by artists like Elvis Costello and Sonic Youth, Jazzmasters aren't just known for their offset body style—they're popular with musical pioneers for the control offered by their two wide single-coil pickups and feedback-friendly string resonance. First introduced in 1958, the Jazzmaster played second fiddle to more mainstream Fender models like the Strat and the Tele through the '60s until the end of the '70s when it left normal production altogether. In the '80s and '90s, the guitar made a resurgence with various alternative rock players, before ascending to its current spot atop the list of most popular guitars in the world.
