2003 Fender Jaguar '62 Vintage Reissue JG66-85 Candy Apple Red w/ USA Pickups, Japan CIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2003 Fender Jaguar '62 vintage reissue model JG66-85 in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, upgraded with American Vintage Jaguar pickups and a Mustang-style bridge. This "Crafted In Japan" Jaguar was made for the Japanese domestic market, uncommon outside its country of origin.

For surfy snap and sparkling cut, it's hard to beat the Jaguar, a model adopted by a huge range of genres for its percussive Fender tone and easy playability. The upgraded American Vintage '62 Jaguar pickups feature black fiber bobbins, cloth-covered leads and lightly beveled alnico magnet pole pieces. There's plenty of clarity and snarl in the bridge position, with darker, warmer tonalities on tap at the neck. The Rhythm Circuit on the bass-side body horn yields even fatter tones, and a high pass filter switch on the hexagonal switch plate delivers thinned out, treble-centric sizzle. This guitar weighs 8lbs 2oz, professionally setup by the Fender Offset specialists here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
