Profile of Fender Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster

Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo. Jazzmaster® guitars slung across seminal shoulders. In the hands of both men, the sound of Sonic Youth is the sound of that guitar used as part paintbrush and part cluster bomb. If anybody ought to have a signature Jazzmaster® model, it’s those two guys.

Done. Fender’s Thurston Moore Jazzmaster® and the Lee Ranaldo Jazzmaster® guitars rock classic Jazzmaster® gestalt, Youth-fully stripped down and hot rodded right through the roof.
