Represented here, a classic Fender Jazzmaster with a three colour sunburst body, a pau ferro fretboard, chrome hardware and a brown-shell scratch plate. In the background, behind this incredible instrument I’ve tried to feature as many noted Fender Jazzmaster players as I possibly could, in absolutely no particular order other than what agile type setting would allow… Featured guitarists listed at the bottom of this text.
The Fender Jazzmaster, first introduced in 1958, was originally designed as a more expensive sibling to the Fender Stratocaster and was initially marketed to jazz guitarists, but in the early 1960s, it found favour with surf-rock guitarists.
Slowly, Jazzmasters, along with Fender Jaguars fell out of fashion with guitarists during the 1970s, largely due to a classic appearance that may have been considered old-fashioned. The 70s rock sound embodied a "fat" humbucker tone with lots of sustain, so guitarists gravitated toward guitars like the Gibson Les Paul. However, just as Fender discontinued the Jazzmaster, New Wave guitarists like Tommy Verlaine and Elvis Costello started giving the instrument a new cult status, something that continued when the guitar was later embraced by the bands like Sonic Youth and Nirvana in the American indie rock scene. Today, the Fender Jazzmaster is arguably THE go-to guitar for many young guitarists.
Employing the Découpe (cut-up) technique in which written text is cut up and rearranged to create a different and perhaps unexpected new narrative, David Lloyd has employed shards of lyrics to give discerning fans an opportunity to engage in 'discover the songs' beneath a foreground featuring an iconic and classic guitar. The Découpe concept can be traced back to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularised in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs and later employed by David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Thom Yorke. Due to shipping constraints, we are unable to sell our prints mounted and framed as pictured.
I designed the print size to fit standard off the shelf frames in the US and Europe in order to save on costs for customers in their respective territories.
The 11.8 x 11.8" print (30 x 30cm including border) is signed with it's own individual limited edition number (1 of only 50) then laid on a sheet of tissue paper before being carefully rolled and placed inside a strong reinforced cardboard tube for shipping purposes. It will fit into a 12" x 12" frame, a 13" x 13" frame and a 14" x 14" depending how big the mount border you prefer (the one illustrated in the room with the lamp would be a 14" x 14" frame, whilst the frame with the smaller mount would fit a 12" x 12" frame.
