We present an all original 1964 pre-CBS Fender Jaguar in Candy Apple Red finish with matching headstock. Made in Fullerton, California.
This Fender Jaguar is absolute stunning to play. It has beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with good original frets and nut. 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. Overall, this pre-CBS Fender guitar is in very good condition with some nicks, dings and other cosmetic play wear.
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 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. This Jaguar has beautiful nitro lacquer and nicks and dings, and other cosmetic wear.
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.
