A short review from Rob…
This unique guitar is someone’s dream in waiting- with its stripped-down control scheme the stylish Limited Edition American Special Jazzmaster Bigsby is ready to rock, jangle, and stun.
Before I tell you the cool features let me tell you the extra-cool features! The bridge has been upgraded to the Mastery Bridge (£200 quid’s worth) as used by Elvis Costello, Nels Cline, Troy Van Leeuwen, Thurston Moore, and countless others. The tuners have been upgraded too to Fender’s own locking ones for quick restringing and stable tuning – after wanging on the Bigsby it returns to tune nicely, helped also by the roller string trees.
The colour is a good enough to eat Candy Apple Red on an alder body. White witch hat knobs, and a black/white/black pickguard complete the ensemble for classic Fender style. Includes a “Limited Edition” neck plate, see photos. It almost goes without saying this guitar is made in America.
Be assured the maple neck has a perfectly judged taper and feel, and houses medium-jumbo frets on a rosewood fingerboard. It’s a very player-friendly shallow ‘C’ shape with a modern 9.5″ fingerboard radius.
Pure Vintage ’65 Jazzmaster pickups retain the clear tones and edgy snarl of their inspiration. They are easily controlled by the 3-way pickup selector and master volume and master tone controls.
The Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece replaces the standard Jazzmaster tailpiece, adding an expressive shimmer to your playing, it really does sound sweet and a million miles away from your Floyd Rose style trem.
This guitar is in great condition, with little to no visible wear, and could go from stage to studio to photoshoot while exuding class in all areas. Cosmetically it’s in near mint condition with no visible damage anywhere and next to no fret wear. Also included is the tweed case, original documentation, adjustment tools and spares – bonus!
