We present an all original and early 1966 Fender Jaguar in its original 3-Tone Sunburst finish.
This ash-body jaguar is so stunning. Gorgeous Sunburst finish and overall the guitar is in near mint condition with very minor nicks, dings and other cosmetic wear. There is lot of life left in the original frets and nut. All features of this model, including Grey Bobbin Pickups, a tortoise pickguard, and pearl dots with bindings on the veneer rosewood fingerboard. It comes complete with its original tremolo arm, bridge cover and matching number hangtag.
The maple neck has a medium C-shaped profile which is gaining notable shoulder and roundness as you travel up the fretboard with good chunk.
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.
Pickups and 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.
