What Do We Think?
The whole guitar weighs just 7lb 3.5oz, making the most of a lightweight ash body! The roasted flame maple neck is a sharp but subtle complement to the satin Pitch Black finish and ebony fretboard sans front dot markers. Acoustically, the guitar delivers more body and resonance than we’re used to finding on Jazzmaster-styled guitars, and we love it! And that’s just the start.
The Widerange pickups are beautifully articulate and, exactly as the name suggests, widerange in their EQ output. They have a beautiful shimmer on top and a big bloom on bottom. Using the “cello” tone roller, you can dial in the woodier, smokier tone of a traditional humbucker or just take a touch of sparkle off the top. And the bass rolloff is a delightfully useful tool in controlling how the low end sits in a busy mix.
The series/parallel switch turns each of the Widerange pickups into a pair of single coils set in close proximity. This delivers a tone very much akin to the quack of a Strat in the combined positions. Turn on both of the Widerange pickups simultaneously for a big, sweet soundscape devoid of hard edges but with plenty of presence in the delivery.
How Does It Play?
We have this beauty set up with string action measuring just 4/64” on the low E string at the 12th fret and even lower on the high E. The Medium Oval C neck profile has healthy shoulders but a flattened back to keep it from becoming too bulky. It feels very supportive in the hand without slowing you down. And the back of the neck has a silky smooth satin finish.
