We present an all original 1963 Fender Jaguar in Black finish with factory gold hardware. Made in Fullerton, California.
To find a Fender Jaguar with factory gold hardware is nearly impossible from the pre-CBS era. This rare pre-CBS guitar is absolutely stunning to play and has all of the pre-CBS features including clay dots on the dark rosewood fingerboard. The maple neck has some play spots that is worn down to the bare wood. C-shaped profile which is very slender at the nut, gaining notable shoulder and roundness as you travel up the fretboard. This Jaguar has beautiful nitro lacquer checking and nicks and dings, and other cosmetic wear spots on the front and back of the body. Through the years some of the factory gold parts has faded, but overall the gold is in fantastic shape. The original nut and frets has plenty of life left.
There is so much resonance of this instrument when you strike your first chord, and that dynamic, soulful quality really translates into the amplified signal. The Jaguar offers tonal options to both thicken up the sound and alternately make it even more sinewy and thin.
The “strangle” toggle (located on the hexagonal plate next to the individual pickup on/off switches) gives the guitar a treble heavy snap, while the rhythm circuit is a separate circuit for the neck pickup, engaging a darker tone cap. The rhythm circuit provides one of the best sounds on this guitar, with a thicker, wooly tone that still has plenty of clarity, while adding warmth to your clean signal.
Pickups and electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Fender white tolex hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
