We present an all original 1965 Fender Jaguar, in its original Black finish with matching headstock.
This rare custom color is in absolute near mint condition with pearloid dots on the dark veneer rosewood fingerboard. It even comes complete with its original tremolo arm, bridge cover, and hardshell case.
This “killer” Jaguar has a fantastic story. The guitar was rented out and featured in the most popular Fender book; The Golden Age. Otherwise the guitar have been stored in its original hardshell case in 30 years.
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 “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. The frets is like new and there is a lot of life left.
Pickups and electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints and no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Fender hardshell case.
