We present an all original and early 1966 Fender Jaguar in its original Olympic White finish over Candy Apple Red with Gold undercoat!
The only thing that has been replaced on this beauty, is a new foam (aka rubber) on the flip up mute. This is very common and don’t effect the value and the originality. They shrink and become useless, so it needs to be changed if you wanna use it. Like you also have to change strings from time to time.
This Custom Color is an absolute stunning to play with great frets and has all features of this model, including grey bobbin pickups, a tortoise Pickguard and pearl dots with bindings on the veneer rosewood fingerboard. It even comes complete with its 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 “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 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.
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.
