+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2008 Fender American Vintage ‘62 Jaguar in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, finished in Olympic White and complete with the original G&G hardshell case and hangtags. This Jaguar has a traditional tonewood complement with an alder body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard, delivering a clear, authoritative natural acoustic tone.

Plugged in, this Jag delivers the goods, retaining the original pair of black bobbin single coil pickups with lightly beveled flat-pole alnico magnets. The American Vintage '62 pickups are a bit rounder and fuller in the midrange than later Fender Jaguar pickup winds, retaining plenty of twang and snap in the top end, with the slightly aggressive chime and sinewy snarl that sets this model apart. Offering plenty of sparkling cut and percussive snap, this Jaguar is quite versatile. Engage the Rhythm Circuit on the guitar's lower body horn for darker, meatier tones, or flip the "strangle" switch in the Lead Circuit for thinner tic-tac sounds.This American Vintage ‘62 Jaguar weighs 8lbs 13oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss Olympic White nitro lacquer finish has yellowed gently to a rich cream hue, most prominent on the back, particularly along the belly carve. Cosmetic wear is limited to light localized finish scratches on the back, and a few tiny finish chips and dings on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss.

The original G&G brown tolex hardshell case is included, along with the hangtags.
