Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1994 Fender Jaguar ‘62 vintage reissue model JG66-85 in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with a hardshell case, hangtag, and bill of sale. Long ago discontinued, this “Made in Japan” Jaguar was produced for the Japanese domestic market, uncommon outside its country of origin.

For surfy snap and twang, it's hard to beat the Jaguar, a model adopted by numerous genres for its cutting Fender tone and easy playability. With a percussive clarity and snarl in the bridge position and warmer, darker tonalities at the neck, there's a surprisingly broad tonal range via the original pair of flat pole piece alnico magnet single coils. The Rhythm Circuit on the bass-side body horn offers darker tones, and a high pass filter switch on the hexagonal control plate yields thinned-out, treble-centric sizzle. The guitar weighs 8lbs 14oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, where we specialize in Fender Offset instruments, with fresh 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

This is an exceedingly well-kept instrument, with cosmetic wear on the gloss three-tone Sunburst finish limited to one tiny ding on the top south of the bridge. The smooth gloss finish on the neck profile is immaculate.

The original black tolex hardshell case is included, along with the factory hangtag and bill of sale, dated to 1994.
