Jet guitars are inspired by classic high end guitars, and they really do look and feel much more expensive than they in fact are! The JS-300 is fitted with three ceramic magnet single-coil pickups, resulting in an appropriate Stratty twang. The tremolo enables the whammy bar action to match, while the bone nut and Roasted Maple fretboard are usually unseen at this price.

 

With a lightweight and resonant Basswood body, combined with a Roasted Canadian Maple neck / fretboard, the Jet JS-300 gets off to a very good start. This guitar really has looks to die for, with a rich gloss finish showing off the Black body and Roasted neck to full effect. Aged plastic knobs and pickup covers give it a vintage look which complements the caramel hue of the neck and multi-ply tortoiseshell pickguard.

In terms of playing ergonomics, the JS-300 is immediately comfortable for the modern guitarist, coming with a Modern “C”-shaped neck profile and 9.5” radius fretboard. Jet have gone to extra lengths to improve playing comfort, with an extra contour added to the lower body cutaway to ease upper-fret action.

 

In terms of hardware, a vintage-style synchonised tremolo has been fitted, along with chrome closed-gear tuners. The bone nut ensures that all vibrations from the strings are transferred to the three ceramic single-coil pickups. These are controlled via the classic volume / 2 x tone knobs and 5-way switch layout.
