The American Special Jazzmasters will be available in Olympic White and Sonic Blue.

Chicago, IL (August 11, 2015) -- Chicago Music Exchange releases the brand new exclusive Fender American Special Jazzmaster in limited edition colors, Olympic White, and Sonic Blue. Only fifty of each model will be produced.

Fender and Chicago Music Exchange worked together to develop a professional quality Jazzmaster at an accessible price point. Built in the USA, this new take on a classic provides vintage sound and style while acknowledging contemporary appointments, innovation, and reliable playability.

Staying true to Fender heritage, the Fender American Special Jazzmaster includes historically accurate Fender American Vintage ‘65 Jazzmaster single coil pickups for the chimey tone synonymous with Jazzmaster sound, classic Fender custom colors Olympic White and Sonic Blue, and a high-quality G&G hardshell case to protect the investment. As a departure from more traditional Jazzmaster models, the Fender American Special Jazzmaster features an Adjusto-Matic bridge for tuning stability and performance reliability, a simplified 3-way pickup selector to allow quick switching from pickup to pickup in a location accessible while playing, and modern jumbo frets for effortless fretting and bending.

The limited edition Fender American Special Jazzmaster in Olympic White and Sonic Blue is priced at $1299.00 USD and is available exclusively at Chicago Music Exchange.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
