The Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster delivers the massive tone and performance the Dinosaur Jr. leader is known for.

Squier honors alt-rock godfather and Dinosaur Jr. leader J Mascis with a striking new Jazzmaster guitar model that delivers as much massive sound and performance as its namesake. The pickups, hardware and finish are all specified by Mascis himself for tremendous tone and value.

The J Mascis Jazzmaster features a basswood body, C-shaped maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 21 jumbo frets, two single-coil Jazzmaster pickups with three-position switching and dual tone circuits, gold anodized aluminum pickguard, aged white plastic parts (knobs, switch tip, pickup covers), Adjusto-Matic bridge with vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece, vintage-style tuners, chrome hardware, Vintage White finish and J Mascis signature on the back of the large ’60s-style headstock. Case not included.

Features:
  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 21-fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Two single-coil Jazzmaster pickups
  • Classic dual-circuit design ("lead"/"rhythm") with volume and tone controls for each
  • Three-way toggle pickup switch, two-way slide "lead"/"rhythm" switch
  • Adjusto-Matic bridge with vintage-style "floating" tremolo tailpiece
  • Gold anodized aluminum pickguard, vintage-style tuners

    Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    The J Mascis Jazzmaster is a great and beautiful guitar. It plays and sounds just like the Jazzmaster that I had in the early 60's, that was ruined in a flood. Don't believe it when you hear that the J Mascis pickups are "dark" sounding. Get another amp. The only difference that I can see is, that this Jazzmaster doesn't have the tremolo lock that I thought was useless anyway. Keep in mind that the tremolo bar needs to be pressed all of the way down into the sleeve or it will rattle like a Stratocaster. This tremolo is very smooth and responsive. The slide button for playing rhythm works fine and the sound of the alternate circuit is just right for laying back. I did change the strings to Ernie Ball Hybrid 9-46 and did some personal setup changing. Just my preference. The supplied 10-46 strings are OK though. The guitar will be a great choice for any style of music.

    Comments about Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

    Was jealous when my friend got the first Mascis signature model (purple).... But this guitar plays just as well and the neck is more comfortable. Everything you want and expect from a Jazzmaster but the neck (what you use the most on a guitar) is top knotch. It feels like a 60's fender neck, more thick than the "Modern C" is a classic profile. Bang for buck the only better buy at sam ash is the super champ x2 and that is a whole different category. I own american fenders but squire has been putting out awesome instruments these past 2 years and saving me money. I just saw Dinosaur Jr. last night and J. had one on stage but didn't play it.....his loss. I talked to Murph (Drummer) after the show and he said he prefers this new squire signature model over the fender purple model. Don't miss out!
