Introduced in 1962 as Fender’s new top-of-the-line offering, the Jaguar® soon rode a wave of popularity as the weapon of choice for surf rock guitarists. With new features including a shorter scale length, shielded higher-output pickups and three pickup switches on the treble side, the ’62 Jaguar serves up a most distinctive look and tone.
To honor that year’s model, we’ve given this classic Jaguar our Journeyman Relic® lacquer treatment—evoking a tastefully worn high-end Fender that has graced many a stage. The tinted quartersawn maple neck has a comfortable “C” neck profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets for a modern playing edge. True to its vintage, this striking guitar’s shielded ’62 Jaguar pickups eliminate hum, with ’62 Jaguar wiring and a a Jazzmaster® rhythm circuit. Other features include three-ply mint green pickguard, vintage-style Jaguar bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and “wing” string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
