Distinctive color combo and versatile electronics make this signature model stand out.
Well back into the 1990s and right up to this day, Troy Van Leeuwen has contributed deftly textural guitar work and atmospherics to some of alt-heavy rock's most acclaimed and forward-thinking bands. From the influential '90s alternative of Failure to A Perfect Circle, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Puscifer and others, Van Leeuwen's multi-instrumental expertise has given great color and power to a great deal of very creative rock music.
The Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster is as distinctive as the sounds he wrings from it. Its gloss Oxblood finish with a four-ply red tortoiseshell pickguard is darkly alluring, with the interestingly contrasting touch of two white "witch hat" control knobs. The dual tone circuits (lead, rhythm) use a two-way toggle switch on the upper horn rather than the customary slider switch, and the brass-saddle Mustang bridge is combined with a Jazzmaster tailpiece.
Other features include a maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and heel-end truss rod adjustment, 7.25"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and pearloid block inlays, two American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster single-coil pickups with three-way toggle switching, and vintage-style tuners.
Hardshell case included.
If you're a fan of Van Leeuwen, this is a no-brainer. Order today.

Comments about Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:
Simply put: his guitar is incredible all around. If you're considering getting one...do it. The look is fantastic and is much more beautiful in person, pictures don't do it justice. The fit and finish were impeccable on mine. The binding and inlays are very well done. The wood of the neck has a very nice grain and looks high-end. All of the parts are quality. Guitar feels solid and substantial. Neck is meaty yet confortable. I've heard they use the American Vintage parts for this and it would seem so. I had a Classic Player Jazzmaster which is also MIM and the quality of this guitar is much higher. I've read reviews that said the set-up was bad out of the box, but I found it to be really quite good. I use heavier gauge strings, so when I changed them I did go ahead and set-up it a little more to my liking, but it was definitely fine out of the box. The fretboard is really nice and very comfortable. It was pretty dry, so when I changed the strings I slathered on some lemon oil which darkened it up in a pleasing way too. The case is great too, definitely not a cheapo basic case. Very nice. Oh...and most importantly it sounds fantastic. My only complaint is that mine was shipped with the wrong tremelo arm. I called Fender and they are sending me a replacement, so other assuming I get it here soon, no major deal there. Very happy with my purchase.
