1965 Fender Jaguar – Lake Placid Blue – Gold Hardware
We present an original 1965 Fender Jaguar in Lake Placid Blue finish with gold hardware. Made in Fullerton, California.
To find a Fender Jaguar Custom Color with gold hardware is nearly impossible. A super rare piece of history as well as a top collector piece and notch player! Every single screw, hardware and whammy bar is in gold. Even the truss rod nut.
Some of the parts are more aged, but they are all in gold. The only thing that has been replaced on this beauty, is a new black foam (aka rubber) on the flip up mute. This is totally common and don’t effect the value or originality, because they shrink and become useless. It needs to be changed if you wanna use it properly. Like you have to change strings from time to time. It features many pre-CBS features but have some transitions specifications, such as white pickguard.
This rare piece is absolutely stunning to play and has all of the early features of this model, including clay dots on the veneer rosewood fingerboard. It even comes complete with it’s original tremolo arm.
The maple neck has a C-shaped profile with a beautiful rosewood fingerboard. Overall, this jaguar has beautiful nitro lacquer checking and nicks and dings, and other cosmetic wear. Through the years some of the gold parts has gotten great patina.
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 black tolex hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
