Our Jazzmaster Compatible Body gives you the classic JM shape and configuration, delivering a guitar tone that’s been heard on countless hit records. The legendary sound of the Tele is much sought after by guitarists, and our replacement JM bodies are perfectly routed to accept your pickups of choice.

Compatibility

We’ve produced faithful replicas of this iconic body shape, with the same dimensions and pickup routing as the original, thus ensuring our bodies are compatible with genuine Fender hardware and necks, including MIA, MIM, MIJ, and many Squier models 

Alder Guitar Body

Alder has many sonic advantages thanks to its closed-pore design which delivers a resonant and balanced tone. Often referred to as ‘full-bodied’ it has a great sound across the entire spectrum range, delivering excellent sustain and attack. Its balanced tonal nature and easy-to-use construction are what it make it one of the most popular woods for guitar bodies.

Tune-O-Matic Bridge Routing

Our Jazzmaster bodies are routed for Tune-O-Matic bridges. While the original Jazzmaster was designed with its distinct bridge system, some players found issues such as string slippage and unwanted buzzing from the original Jaguar/Jazzmaster bridge. The Tune-O-Matic bridge, on the other hand, provides better string stability, improved intonation, and a more consistent playing experience. By adopting the TOM bridge, we aim to combine the iconic aesthetics of the Jazzmaster with a more reliable and player-friendly bridge system, ensuring a blend of classic design with contemporary performance.

Neck Pocket

All of our guitar bodies are designed with complete compatibility in mind, so our neck pockets are perfectly sized to fit the vast majority of guitar necks. The neck pocket offers a snug fit with pre-drilled holes for easy installation, making them perfect for matching with genuine Fender necks, or other aftermarket guitar necks.

Routing

We also rout all of our guitar bodies for all your electronics, with pickups, control cavities, and some hardware mounts already pre-drilled so you can get up and running quicker. Depending on the model we may not necessarily drill tremolo or bridge mounting holes, and this is because there is so much variety between different bridge types that we would end up limiting what you can install.

Poly Finish

All of our guitar bodies carry Polyurethane finishes, which is the most popular material for finishing modern guitar bodies. There are a variety of reasons for the switch from Nitrocellulose to Polyurethane but, one of the main factors is that Poly requires far fewer coats to finish the guitar resulting in a quicker overall build process. It’s also far more durable than Nitrocellulose and will stay shiny for longer, being incredibly resistant to scratches and dings as anyone who's ever tried to sand it can attest to.

We've been making bodies and necks for many years now, and we have achieved a reputation among builders and luthiers for producing wood products of the highest quality. Our Jazzmaster Compatible Body is the perfect guitar body for your next build project.

Great body and neck

Body is great and fitted a fender player neck as well as their own jazzmaster maple neck (which is flawless by the way). Only thing is that maybe the finish is a little thin and tends to crack if you don’t pay enough attention happened when putting in the neck that was a snug fit). No biggie but keep it in mind. Other yhan that I can’t recommend them enough. Great customer service and honestly very good body and neck, not the crap you can find on ebay most of the time. And the price is not expensive either. So 5 stars from me.
