Debuting in 1962, the Jaguar® featured a 24” scale length, a striking offset body and multiple switching and tonal options, and was expected to eventually eclipse the Stratocaster® as Fender’s top-of-the line model. This ’66 Jaguar features a two-piece select alder body with a Deluxe Closet Classic finish for the refined and slightly aged look of a guitar that was well-taken-care-of through the years. The quartersawn maple neck has a ’66 “Jaguar C” profile, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo (6150) frets for smooth play up and down the neck.
Sheilded ’62 Jaguar pickups provide extra hum cancellation and bright complex tones, with vintage Jaguar rhythm and lead circuit wiring. Other features include a four-ply brown shell pickguard, vintage-style bridge with “floating” tremolo tailpiece, Schaller® “F” tuning machines, bone nut, and a wing string tree with tall metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
