2000 Fender Jaguar '62 Vintage Reissue JG66-85 Sunburst, Japan CIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2000 Fender Jaguar '62 vintage reissue model JG66-85 in excellent, 100% original condition. A discontinued model, this "Crafted In Japan" Fender was made for the Japanese domestic market, uncommon outside its country of origin.

Acoustically, this alder-bodied Jaguar offers a clear, ringing voice which translates well through the original pair of flat pole piece alnico magnet single coils. For surfy snap and twang, it's hard to beat the Jaguar, a model adopted by a huge range of 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 range of tones available on the Jaguar, a range further enhanced by the Rhythm Circuit on the bass-side body horn (for even darker tones) and a high pass filter switch on the hexagonal switch plate (for more thinned out, treble-centric sizzle). The guitar weighs 8lbs 11oz, 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.
