The highly acclaimed Fender Select series introduces an all-new lineup for 2013. These finely crafted guitars and basses put decades of Fender expertise on display, with elegant features and design options for discerning musicians everywhere. Experience the latest figured tops, beautiful finishes, choice tone woods, figured and quartersawn maple necks with compound-radius fingerboards, an innovative new "inlaid" fingerboard design on two of the models, specially voiced pickups, and several new first-rate features that mark Fender's top-line best as remarkable instruments.
A striking new Jazzmaster model joins the Fender Select lineup in the powerful, gorgeous and light form of the Fender Select Carved Maple-Top Jazzmaster HH. A distinctive high-end version of a venerable Fender classic, it boasts a potent pair of new Wide Range Special humbucking pickups and a "channel-bound" rosewood fingerboard--a brand-new Fender innovation in which the compound-radius (9.5"-14") rosewood fingerboard is "inlaid" into the thick modern "C"-shaped maple neck. In addition to creating a stylish new look, it imparts an amazingly comfortable fretting-hand feel in which both edges are pleasingly rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard.
The Fender Select Carved Maple-Top Jazzmaster HH also has a chambered alder body with a carved flame maple top in elegant hand-stained Cayenne Burst and Twilight Burst finishes with gloss-lacquer topcoat. Other premium features include a hand-rubbed oil neck finish, 21 medium jumbo frets and white pearloid block position inlays, three-way toggle pickup switching, heavy-knurled chrome controls with tone-knob S-1 switch for even greater tonal versatility, Bi-Flex™ truss rod system, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with stop tailpiece, deluxe staggered locking tuners and Fender Select headstock medallion.
