Debuting in 1962, the Jaguar featured a 24” scale length, a striking offset body and multiple switching and tonal options, and was expected to eventually eclipse the Stratocaster as Fender’s top-of-the line model. While this ultimately never came to pass - hard to topple the dominant Strat, right? - the Jaguar has been adopted by scores of players like Johnny Marr, Kurt Cobain, Kevin Shields, John Frusciante, Tom Verlaine, PJ Harvey...the list goes on and on.
This ’63 Jaguar features a two-piece select alder body with a Candy Apple Red / Journeyman Relic finish for the refined and slightly aged look of a guitar that was well-taken-care-of through the years.
The rift sawn maple neck has a ’63 “Jaguar C” profile, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and 22 narrow tall (6105) frets for smooth play up and down the neck. The 62 flat-pole Jaguar pickups deliver classic Jaguar bite which lives, to our ears, in the Strat world for a reference.
Priced with hardshell case.
