The Times Style Magazine has a really nice tribute to the Jazzmaster on its fiftieth anniversary. I don’t know much about guitars, but the article gives you a nice education on the guitar used by just about every band. For example, the jazzmaster was designed for… can you guess it… masters of jazz. But they didn’t like it one bit. Fortunately, jazz players rejection of the guitar opened it up for the likes of everyone from the Smiths to Elvis Costello to Yo La Tengo.
