After news of the Paranormal Series went public yesterday, another Squier model gets leaked online. The new Squier Mini Jazzmaster HH is a dinky little offset with twin humbuckers.

Yet another Guitar Center leak ahead of the official NAMM launch. The new Squier Mini Jazzmaster HH is a miniaturised version of the famous Fender offset, first released back in the late ’50s.

This mini version has twin humbucker pickups and a hardtail bridge. The pickups are wired via a 3-way toggle and a volume and tone control. It’s a cute looking guitar and could make a great travel companion.

The guitar will be available in Daphne Blue, Surf Green and Olympic White finishes.

Below is the official blurb from the Guitar Center site;

The Squier Mini Jazzmaster HH is the perfect companion for players seeking a reduced-size instrument with classic styling and familiar Fender tone. Highlights include a thin and lightweight body, an easy-to-play “C”-shaped neck profile, dual Squier humbucking pickups with 3-way switching for sonic variety, and a hardtail bridge for solid tuning stability.

Features:

  • 100% Designed by Fender
  • Thin and lightweight body
  • Dual humbucking pickups
  • Sealed die-cast tuning machines
  • Hardtail bridge

Although it looks sweet, it’s not something I could really use. You might like one as a travel guitar though, or perhaps for your kids. They aren’t showing up on Fender or Squire’s web pages yet, but I am sure they will very soon.

RRP – USD 149.99

    Early user reports are that this model has a dodgy neck (not stable) and almost unusable tuners. Shame, because it looks fun.
    Fender should make it themselves in Ensenada.

      Such a shame, could have been a great little offset. Oh well…

      • Cort says:

        Actually, there might not be inherent problems after all. Turns out they come strung with 9s. That’s far too light a gauge for a 22.75″ scale guitar and I’m surprised Fender have allowed it. I reckon fitting 10s or, even better, 11s will provide the necessary tension to stabilise the neck and tuners.
        (Even with a rock-steady neck and locking tuners, 9s on a 22.75″ scale are going to go out of pitch just with too much fretting pressure, especially near the nut.)
        I may buy one for The Boy and play around with it.
