Jordan Wagner of Premier Guitar magazine put together a lengthy and informative review of the Fender Sonic Youth Signature Jazzmasters.
“In the case of the Sonic Youth Jazzmasters, it seems that constant experimentation and devotion can lead to the discovery that the simplest approach is often the best,” writes Wagner. “The necks are great, the pickup combinations are highly distinct and the playability of both is enormous. Each model comes with a hardshell case and some great case candy: a cable, strap, a magazine with tales from their guitar techs over the years, and a nifty sticker sheet with designs from the guitarists. For those searching for a great, stripped-down Jazzmaster (or just a solid Fender in general), the Sonic Youth Signature Jazzmasters are a refreshing alternative.”
