A marquis example of Fender's groundbreaking short-scale offset electric, this CBS-Era Jaguar rocks our favorite look of a bound fingerboard and block inlays.

Why We Love This

Jaguars certainly don't get the praise that their older brethren have received over the past six or seven decades, but that doesn't mean they haven't made a similar impact on the electric guitar world. Released just a few short years after its long-scale companion Jazzmaster, the Jaguar offers a similar vibe in a short-scale format, adding an ease of playability along with a slightly different tonal response.

This particular Jaguar represents the 'Version 2' stylings created during the CBS Era, which is one of the coolest aesthetic variants we've seen on any Fender from this mid to late 60s. It shows off its classic vibrant 3-tone Sunburst finish with minimal fading and some really lovely natural finish checking, but takes on a different personality than the early 60s versions by adorning the neck with binding and pearl blocks. It's a dressed up look that works so well with this model, and we can't get enough of it!

It's in excellent condition and has been very well maintained, with little beyond some light finish checking and light play wear commensurate with age. There's some case rash on the body edges and just a couple of small nicks on the neck. The guitar is almost entirely original, with just some replacement foam on the bridge mute and some added foam underneath the bridge pickup. It once had a replaced slider switch installed (unnecessarily), but the original slider switch is back in the guitar. The pickups and pots are original to the guitar and work great. All of the hardware is original to the guitar as well.
