Squier's J Mascis Jazzmaster pays homage to the indie-rocking, distortion-loving axeman behind Dinosaur Jr. This offset-waisted vintage white beauty sports a gold anodized pickguard for a touch of vintage flash. Onboard the J Mascis Jazzmaster, you'll find specs requested by J himself — an Adjusto-Matic bridge, vintage styling, and a smooth-playing satin-finished neck, to name a few. Beyond that, you'll find a duo of full-toned single-coil pickups plus the Jazzmaster's famous flexible tone controls. All in all, you'll be ready to make some noise with the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster.
A guitar fit for a noise-rock king
You'll be supremely psyched to have the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster in your hands — many guitarists at Sweetwater certainly are. This Squier pays tribute to the alt/indie rock founding father, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. Mascis certainly took the instrument to a new place with his feedback-drenched, distortion-laden rocking. And this new signature model pays affectionately ear-splitting homage to Mascis, giving the instrument a modern makeover for fans who've been clamoring for such a model.
Adds Mascis-requested mods to the already flexible Jazzmaster
With its vintage-inspired vintage white finish, '60s headstock, and gold anodized pickguard, the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster features the cosmetics, pickups, and hardware specified by Mascis himself. Such cool mods include an Adjusto-Matic bridge, a slightly wider nut width, and a satin-finished neck. The Dinosaur roar comes from dual single-coil pickups with punchy midrange emphasis, and the barrage of controls the Jazzmaster has always been known for — a lead circuit with 3-position toggle switch and volume/tone knobs, plus a rhythm circuit with separate volume/tone controls.
