Trying to label John Scofield’s work is nearly impossible: post-bop, funk-edged jazz, R&B…for all we know he may be inventing a whole new genre at this very moment. And for as varied as his musical stylings are, there also seems no end to the breadth of Scofield’s musical collaborations. Whether challenging the form with Pat Metheny, cruising with Medeski, Martin & Wood, or jamming with Gov’t Mule, the soulfulness of Scofield’s tone and chops makes him instantly recognizable to his ever-growing legion of fans.

This JSM10 of Scofield’s signature instrument reflects his desire to offer a guitar that meets his high standards, but falls within the reach of young working players.

The JSM10’s semi-hollow Flamed Maple Body is visually refined work of craftsmanship that enables clean, clear, warm tone: a character further enhanced by the 3pc neck.

For extended tone options, the JSM10 comes with two Super 58 custom pickups and a Tri-Sound switch for the neck pickup that allows you to select humbucker in series (traditional), parallel (brighter, single coil type tone w/ lower output and hum cancellation) or coil-tapping for a single coil sound. An ART1 bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability.


Includes hard shell case.
