George Blanda Founders Design Jazzmaster®
As an R&D guru, George’s creative process has always centered on fixing players’ problems–looking for a fusion of fit, form, function and emotional response to get a guitar or bass right. "I’ve always been a fan of the golden age of industrial design, from the ‘30s up to the ‘50s and even ‘60s," he said. His Founders Design Jazzmaster is inspired by the classic image he has of an early ‘60s Jazzmaster–a white guitar with white pickups, a tortoiseshell pickguard and rosewood fretboard. The Founders Design Jazzmaster with modified pickups features a White Blonde ash body, giving an all-white appearance, but with some visible wood grain. The pickguard and fingerboard are both crafted from dyed and stabilized maple burl wood, which is reminiscent of tortoiseshell but with more depth, movement and a splash of color. The Jazzmaster comes with a custom kit and G&G plush case.
