2022 Fender Traditional 60s Jaguar Offset Guitar Sunburst w/ Hangtags, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Fender Traditional ‘60s Jaguar in showroom-clean condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. This model was produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and is rarely seen outside of its country of origin.

A reinvention of Fender Japan's Jaguar platform, the new Traditional 60s model features Fender's V-Mod pickups, with premium componentry including USA-made CTS pots, Switchcraft switches, and USA Fender plastic parts. Tonally, this Jag does everything a good Fender should, and these gray bobbin single coils have a hotter wind with a flat pole piece design, offering more midrange emphasis. The pickups still dish out plenty of twang and snap in the top end, with a slightly aggressive chime and sinewy snarl that sets this model apart and a balanced, sweet sound with great clarity for strummed passages and sparkling lead lines. Engage the Rhythm Circuit for even darker, meatier tones (great for use with fuzz pedals) or click on the "strangle" switch in the Lead Circuit for even thinner tic-tac sounds. This Jaguar weighs 7lbs 4oz, professionally setup by the Fender offset specialists here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The maple neck has a substantial U-shaped profile carve with particularly generous shoulders and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .850” deep at the 1st fret and .925” at the 12th. The thick rosewood fretboard has a modern 9 ½” radius, and the vintage-spec slender fretwire is flawless. This guitar plays cleanly up the 24” scale with a straight neck and a responsive, optimally-adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 9/16” in width. On the headstock, the Kluson-style Gotoh tuning machines turn smoothly and hold accurate pitch. The “Made in Japan” text and JD22-prefix serial are present on the back of the headstock.

The electronics include individual on/off switches for each pickup on the Lead Circuit, in addition to the bass cut (or "strangle switch") on/off toggle and Master Volume and Tone knobs. The Rhythm Circuit has its own pair of Volume and Tone wheels in addition to the on/off toggle switch that engages this circuit, which adds a darker tone cap exclusively for use on the neck pickup. The vibrato unit is smooth and responsive, actuating easily for surfy warbles and dives. The chrome-plated hardware is bright and clean, and plastics include the original pair of knobs and deep reddish brown tortoise pickguard, which retains the factory protective film and advert. This is an exceedingly well-kept example, with barely a mark on the gloss three-tone Sunburst finish. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is equally pristine.

The original Fender-branded gigbag is included, along with the hangtags.
