Squier Jazzmaster

The Squier Jazzmaster offers players an affordable offset guitar experience. Featuring the same iconic design, craftsmanship and attention to detail, a Squier Jazzmaster is a viable entry-level guitar for rebellious rock gods in the making.


The iconic Jazzmaster guitar has been championed by players across a wide variety of genres. This is largely down to its thick sound and its sleek elegant style. The Squier Jazzmaster will give you all of these quality assets at a fraction of the Fender price tag. Despite the Squier Jazzmaster options being much more budget-friendly and affordable, you’ll still get the unmistakable tone of a Jazzmaster which is favoured by prolific musicians across the planet.


While the Jazzmaster is an incredibly popular guitar today – it didn’t quite go as planned for the company. The guitar was originally designed with jazz musicians in mind (hence the name), although the Jazzmaster was largely overlooked by that particular community and adopted by the wave of surf musicians in the 60’s. It’s since come to become associated with a variety of artists, whether that’s the unmistakable jangle of Johnny Marr, the sharp new wave sounds of Elvis Costello, or the calculated but raucous grunge of Thurston Moore.


The Jazzmaster has long been favoured amongst the grunge and noise community. Legendary artists such as J. Mascis, Thurston Moore and even Kurt Cobain have played a Jazzmaster. When combined with the right pedals, it’s capable of making quite the monstrous sound. You can read more about that in our Essential Grunge Guitar Gear Guide.
