It's not just good..

Looks cool, but.....
...one of the things I REALLY like about my Jazzmaster is the trem system.

I know there are a lot of folks who prefer "hardtail" setups, but whenever I see a JM without that unique system, all I can think is that a key element of the guitar is missing.
But that's just me.

A Bigsby might look cool on that Special....(;^D)

Agreed on the trem, but this might be a nice step toward an American Standard JM. It's the first MIA JM under $1500 for a long time.

Yea, there's a similarly surreal American Special Mustang, which is the first MIA Mustang since, well, they stopped making them in the late 70s.

Glad to see some of this stuff return but mystified as to its form - the trems are an integral part of the sound and feel of the offset monsters.

The jazzmaster for people who don't really like jazzmasters. :)

But it is good that it is out there, more choice, more variety in sound.

Thanks Fender

Specs indicate that it has humbuckers, but they sure look like single coil JM pups. Wonder if these are stacked HB's packaged in a JM shell??

Here is an answer to my pup question from Fender:

"I can understand the confusion on this - as they certainly do look like
Single-Coils or P90's.

They are humbuckers however, just designed in a stack coil configuration.

Instead of having your traditional Humbucker where the coils are side by side,
we designed this one to where the coils are stacked on top of each giving the
look of a Single-Coil but the sound of a humbucker."

How about that?!!?!? Anyone try one out yet?

Does a stacked humbucker produce a more focused tone (for lack of a better word) like a Strat pup than a traditional humbucker?
