Fender Jack White Custom Jazzmaster: Blue Sparkles and Pitch-Shifting?
A funky blue offset crammed with weirdness?
A Jack White Custom Jazzmaster? Yep, Jack White has been showing off his new electric guitar on Instagram. This time it is not a pawnshop ’60s guitar. Instead, he is wielding this new Custom Fender Jazzmaster that is finished in blue and white. And it contains an effect pedals under the pickguard, so it can get pretty funky and out there as well!
Jack White Custom Jazzmaster
This Fender Jack White Custom Jazzmaster was created by Chip Ellis and Dan Mancini. This custom offset guitar is finished in a sweet blue sparkle finish. With all white plastics and matching white hardware throughout.
However, the special feature is not the glitter finish or the alleged Lace Sensor pickups. But the built-in pitch shifter effect.
Knobs, Knobs everywhere!
It has some major enhancements for a Jazzmaster, with four knobs, two toggle switches and a pressure switch. These control the onboard pitch-shifting effects, all of which are hidden under the white pickguard.
Jack White is known for playing with a Whammy pedal or his Triplegraph, etc Chances are he has some pretty custom stuff crammed inside this guitar to achieve these oddball tones. You can hear Jack make his new guitar squeal in the Instagram video below.
How can you get close to this?
If you were so inclined and wanted to make some pitch shifting offset guitar tones. How could you achieve this? Well, I would suggest a Fender Jazzmaster, maybe a Whammy pedal and possibly some blue sparkles. You’ll need to do some serious routing under the pickguard, plus be handy with a soldering iron.
I actually know a man that builds guitars like this for a living. He makes them for Matt Bellamy and goes by the name of Tim Stark. He could probably build you one and throw in a Fuzz Factory for you at the same time. You can find his work over at Mansons Guitar Works. He could certainly build all this into a Fender Jazzmaster for you. Or just build you one from scratch.
