In 1997 and 98 Fender Japan offered this little series of three "Limited Edition" guitars dedicated to and designed by the Hellecasters, Will Ray, Jerry Donahue and John Jorgenson. Not only the awesome look and the rarity but also many special constructional details make these guitars very interesting and collectible.Here you can buy the tree of them as a collection we won’t sell them separately This is a pretty rare collectors guitar that was a Limited Edition (either 250 or 500 were made, depending on what you read) built by the Fender Custom Shop in Japan.

The “Hellecasters” logo is also inlaid at the twelfth fret.Special made Seymour Duncan reversed-wound Jazzmaster pickups for a beefier mid range and low end, plus a custom-wired, 4-way pickup selector switch (neck, neck/bridge series, neck/bridge parallel, bridge) and concentric tone controls that allow individual settings for each pickup.The Will Ray Jazz-A-Caster is the only Hellecaster model that comes equipped with a Hipshot™ B-bender.
