A desirable vintage of the high-end classic with its short-scale neck and dual-circuit electronics.

The Fender American Vintage '65 Jaguar Electric Guitar marks a key chapter in Jaguar history. That is, after surf and before punk, when the sole '60s member of Fender's big four guitars staked its own gradually growing claim in the hearts and hands of a select group of alternative-minded guitarists who appreciated its distinctive design and offbeat status. The classic Jaguar shorter scale, dual-circuit layout and sleekly chromed-out design are here, along with a bound round-laminated fingerboard and larger pearl dot inlays-elegant touches the Jaguar acquired in 1965, merely three years after its introduction.

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-'80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, they've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept-restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more-based on actual vintage guitars.

  • Fender American Vintage 65 Jaguar = WOW!

    As reviewed by David on 9/28/2014

    You know, I had a Fender Candy Apple red Jaguar that was made in Japan sometime ago and sold it in 2010. Since I am a Fender kind of guy, I really did miss it and the tones that I was able to get out of it. So in August 2014, I decided to find and buy a Jaguar again when I came across the Fender American Vintage 65. The price was little more than I really wanted to spend, but my wife told me to get it and I did. Now I know why I married her; she is the brains of the operation. I bought the Ice Blue Metallic with matching head stock Jaguar, and even though it had some cosmetic damage (I was able to get the price reduced a bit), it plays like a dream. I can honestly say that my America Vintage is a million times better than my Japanese model; it feels great, its not that heavy, the tone is amazing, the mute on it is perfect for surf music, and it comes with a lot of little goodies as well as the case. My advice, if you can, get it! You will not be disappointed. If I can, sometime later on next year I might get me another one.
