2008 Elvis Costello Fender Jazzmaster Aged Tribute


The Elvis Costello Signature Jazzmaster guitar honors one of the most recognized and recognizable Jazzmaster players in pop music history.
Costello’s original instrument has gone through many changes in the past 30 years, and this new Jazzmaster faithfully replicates the guitar as it existed at the time he recorded his acclaimed 1977 debut album, “My Aim Is True”.

Uniquely Costello-ish features include an early ’70s neck design, walnut stain finish and a tremolo with easier and greater travel for that spine-tingling “Watching The Detectives” spy movie sound!
