We present an all original 1964 pre-CBS Fender Jaguar in its original 3-Tone Sunburst finish.
This is a super clean Jaguar that has all of the early features of this model, including Black Bobbin Pickups, a tortoise Pickguard and clay dots on the veneer rosewood fingerboard. It even comes complete with its original tremolo arm and bridge cover.
There is so much resonance in 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.
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 is grated to excellent+. It only shows few nicks and dings, and other cosmetic wear. Everything remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks, or repairs.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Fender hardshell case.
