We present an all original 1964 Fender Jaguar in Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock. Made in Fullerton, California.
The only thing that has been replaced on this beauty is a new foam (aka rubber) on the flip up mute. This is common, because they shrink over time and become hard and useless. This rare custom color is stunning to play and has all of the early features of this model, including black bottom pickups a Mint Green pickguard and clay dots on the veneer rosewood fingerboard. It even comes complete with it’s original tremolo arm and bridge cover.
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 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 checking 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 non-logo hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
