We present an all original 1964 Fender Jaguar in Black finish with matching headstock. Made in Fullerton, California.
This rare Custom Color is absolutely gorgeous. It has beautiful veneer rosewood fingerboard with clay dots. There is so much resonance of this instrument when you strike your first chord. 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.
The worn and dirty maple neck has a C-shaped profile which is very slender at the nut, gaining notable shoulder and roundness as you travel up the fretboard with good chunk. Overall the neck is so nice with a lot of mojo and play-wear. This Jaguar has beautiful nitro lacquer with a lot of nicks and dings, and other cosmetic play-wear. The original frets have plenty of life left.
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 non-logo hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
