From the couch to the stage to the studio, Fender’s Acoustasonic Player Jazzmaster is a reasonably priced way to break into the hybrid world of the Acoustasonic series! While it may look just like everyone’s favorite surf and shoegaze 6-string, the Acoustasonic Player Jazzmaster’s solid spruce top and mahogany back/sides deliver an impressive unplugged voice that beautifully translates through an amp or PA via the under-saddle piezo pickup. Looking for something a little more aggressive? Simply switch to the Acoustasonic Shawbucker pickup to capture everything from high-gain riffage to soulful strumming. What’s more, a blend knob allows you to mix between these two ends of the tonal spectrum to get the best of both the acoustic and electric world! Finally, a modern deep “C”-profile neck and comfortably contoured slim offset body conjure up an effortless playability that your typical dreadnought can only dream of.

Acoustasonic Shawbucker bridge pickup

Fender Chief Engineer Tim Shaw holds claim to some of the most revered vintage pickup re-creations of our day. Among his more recognized Fender designs is the "Shawbucker" humbucking pickup: a love letter to Tim's more than 35 years of guitar industry service and a major propellent of Fender's HH and HSS electric guitars circa 2015 onward. For the Acoustasonic Player Jazzmaster's specially calibrated Acoustasonic Shawbucker pickup, Tim and Fender went back to the drawing board. "We realized we needed a higher-output pickup than normal because of the unique Acoustasonic body construction," says Tim. "The Acoustasonic Shawbucker has pole pieces that are factory preset from the back, and they’re compensated for bronze strings." This calibration permits pure electric tones you'd never believe could come from an "acoustic" instrument. "When you plug-in and experiment with the Blend control," Tim continues, "You’ll hear electric sounds that go from 'fat and clean' to 'right at home with a 4 x 12 cabinet.'" Plus, as with all Acoustasonic guitars, the Acoustasonic Jazzmaster's spanky, snarly electric tones are designed to sound great running into a traditional speaker cabinet or direct into a full-range PA.

Fender has done a great job of retaining the style and playability of its acclaimed Jazzmaster design for an instrument as advanced as the Acoustasonic Player Jazzmaster. From the familiar offset-waist body to its great-playing, rosewood-capped Modern Deep "C"-profile neck, everything about this guitar will make you feel right at home onstage or in the studio. Its action is a nice compromise between styles: it doesn't bottom out for strums, and it doesn't fret out for leads.

If you’re after a more traditional acoustic tone, the Fender Acoustasonic Player Jazzmaster’s under-saddle pickup captures every nuance of this guitar’s beautiful solid spruce top and resonant mahogany back and sides. It’s the perfect complement to the more traditional electric guitar tones of the Acoustasonic Shawbucker, providing a lush and organic tone that’s ideal for strumming out cowboy chords and tackling your latest fingerstyle masterpiece. However, if you’re feeling experimental, a blend knob allows you to borrow the best elements from this guitar's six fine-tuned electric and acoustic voices, accessed via the 3-way blade switch. Sweetwater guitarists especially love how blending in a bit of the Shawbucker can beef up your piezo’s low end!
