Up for sale, a 2004 Fender Jaguar Special HH model JGS-75 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This discontinued model was sold exclusively within Japan, pairing a classic Fender Jaguar platform with more Gibson-centric pickups and hardware. Visually striking with copious chrome hardware and a custom color Ocean Turquoise Metallic gloss finish that includes a matching peghead, this Jaguar Special HH is outfitted with the stock pair of Dragster humbuckers which have a full and punchy sound. Benefitting from the myriad switching of the original Jaguar design, the guitar boasts a Rhythm Circuit on the lower body horn to thicken up the sound, and a bright switch located on the hexagonal control plate to make things extra snappy when desired. This alder-bodied Jaguar weighs 8lbs 14oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with lightly rolled fretboard edges and full shoulders in every register, measuring .815" deep at the 1st fret and .925" at the 12th. The thick rosewood slab fretboard features the stock slender frets which retain their full factory height and well-rounded crowns, showing only light wear on the crowns beneath the plain strings on frets 1-5. The guitar plays cleanly up the 24" scale length with a responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod and straight neck. The nut measures 42mm in width (1.650"), and the Ocean Turquoise-finished headstock retains the original Kluson-style Gotoh tuners which turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should. The "Crafted in Japan" text and Q-prefix serial number are present above the four-bolt neck plate.
All of the electronics function as intended, and the chrome plating on the hardware is bright and clean with just a light speckling of surface patina. The Adjusto-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece are akin to what you'd find on any Gibson, ensuring optimal tuning stability. The Ocean
Turquoise Metallic gloss finish is accented by a three-ply pickguard that has darkened over time to a shade of parchment, and cosmetic wear is limited to some small dings clustered on the treble-side lower bout body edge, one small finish chip at the treble-side waist, and just a few additional faint finish scratches and minor marks on the body as a whole. The gloss on the neck profile is flawless.
A gigbag is included.
