An eye-catchingly adventurous design—an exquisite exercise in chrome, plastic and wood—the Jaguar guitar’s delightfully off-kilter aesthetics and unique sound made it a darling of underground artists from the ‘70s to today. Though it was the pinnacle of guitar technology when it was released in 1962, time (and technology) marches on so Fender updated the Jaguar with modern features and materials, hot-rodding it for today’s players. The result? The American Professional Jaguar—a dangerous instrument with bite.
Developed by Michael Frank, the brand-new V-Mod Jaguar pickup design expands the guitar’s sonic palette with hot, vintage-informed tone delivering plenty of midrange punch and definition. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume control, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory.
The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords. The improved tremolo and bridge incorporate a screw-in arm and brass Mustang saddles that stabilize the strings while adding a touch of sonic zip to your tone.
The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Jaguar is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend. Includes hardshell case.

Comments about Fender American Professional Jaguar Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:
I was looking at the new Jazzmasters but when I arrived at the store the one in stock had just been sold. I played a Rickenbacker 620, which I really liked, but then I got a hold of the new Jaguar. The new pickups sound amazing. Position one allows you to play both single coils like one, big humbucker and the tone is incredible. In any other position the single coil sounds are miles ahead of the older Jags I've played. Gone is that brittle, piercing high end that used to make you have to roll of the tone on either your guitar or amp. This new Jaguar is no longer a one trick pony. Sounds amazing clean but dialed up with some overdrive this guitar really sings. Great bluesy type sounds, rock and beautiful jazz type chords. The vibrato with the new bridge is super solid and stays in tune perfectly.
The new neck shape is super comfortable and makes chords easy to play all the way up and down the neck. Fit, finish are all top notch. The case is really nice, on par with a flight case.
I have a lot of Gibsons equipped with humbuckers in my collection so I was looking something with single coils that didn't sound like my Telecaster for recording. This guitar fits the bill perfectly and I like the vibrato better than the Bigsby on my Chet Atkins Gretsch. Stays in tune amazingly well and is super sensitive to even the lightest touch, very expressive.
