We just got this sexy beast in today.
(Just the guitar, not the car, sorry.)
Come with us on a magical journey to learn more about the Fender Jaguar!
Jaguars came out in 1962 (2 years before Fender was sold to CBS) and were on the market until ’75. They followed the Jazzmaster and preceded the Mustang as the top of the line model– when they came out, these were the most expensive Fender available (tag prices around $380 in 1962– yeah, I want a time machine, too)!
The Jaguar shares the Jazzmaster’s body, bridge and vibrato, but with better pickups, the first 22 fret fingerboard and a mechanical string mute.
The body is alder with a maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The Fender headstock was in transition during these years, gradually getting larger and larger. Some would consider this the first CBS style headstock. This guy has the standard body and forearm contouring.
