1999 Fender Jaguar '62 Vintage Reissue Offset Guitar, Sunburst, Japan CIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1999 Fender Jaguar ‘62 vintage reissue model JG66-85 in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This “Crafted in Japan” Jaguar was produced for the Japanese domestic market and is 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 7oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, where we specialize in Fender Offset instruments, with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss.
