Some History:

The Fender Jaguar was launched in 1962 some 4 years after its offset body older brother the Jazzmaster. Both guitars shared the modern offset body shape and distinct floating tremolo system. The Jaguar had a shorter 24-inch scale length and different pickups. There were stronger single coil pickups to the Jazzmaster and were which were encased in notched chrome covers to shield the electronics from external radio noise. Both guitars were equipped with a rhythm/lead circuit design. The Jaguar lead circuit includes three switches: on-off for the front pickup, on-off for the back pickup, and a bass-cut switch that adds an extra capacitor to the signal. As a deluxe new addition to the Fender range the Jaguar had some fancy deluxe upgrades installed. This include: chrome switch plates and tremolo system and a flick up string-mute system like you might see on a bass guitar. This never really caught on with players. By 1965 when this guitar was made the Fender Company was in the hand of new management from CBS Corporation and this marked what’s known as the transition era for the Fender Company. Changes seen during this period include a switch from clay to pearloid fingerboard inlays, three-layered plastic pickguard and Kluson F-style tuners.

1965 Fender Jaguar 3 tone sunburst

Fender Jaguar from 1965. Serial number, Neck date and Pot Codes all date to 1965. All switches, pots and hardware appear to be original including the hard case. The guitar comes complete with trem bar, bridge cover and removed string mute you can see in the pictures. There are a lot of dings, marks, gouges, and some finish checking you can see in the pictures but nothing I call serious unless you want a mint guitar that is! It just adds to the vibe in my opinion. The neck is slim and very comfortable. It is nice and straight and the action low. Original frets have been dressed. The picguard has shrunk (as they do). Guitar plays and sounds great. Weight is 7lbs 14 oz with mute removed.
