Five hundred miles from saltwater on Ohio's northern shore is the last place you'd expect to find a dedicated surfing community. Every year though, when the weather is just right, the swells come rolling into the shores of Lake Erie, and a few enthusiastic souls grab their boards. The perfect conditions can happen anytime, even in the freezing dead of winter, but that's not a problem: The lake surfers just grab their wetsuits.

Our Lake Surfer™ set for Jazzmaster® is a bit of an offbeat take on the classic tone. They've got the big, full, classic tone you expect, but with a bit more clarity, brightness and a dash more sparkle. This makes for a pup set that's versatile enough for a rock or blues workhorse, but ready to deliver that iconic surf tone when the conditions are just right and it's time to hit the waves.
