Fender electric guitars embody "The Spirit of Rock-n-Roll." Since 1946, Fender has played a part in musical milestones worldwide. In fact, when the Fender Jaguar series pounced onto the scene in 1962, it didn't take long before it was embraced by many teen rock combos along the Pacific coast. From its first introduction and well beyond, this hip cat of an instrument has attracted legions of fans from all sorts of genres and subgenres ranging from surf music to punk rock to grunge. With their glistening chrome, array of switches and tonal versatility, Fender Jaguars truly are the epitome of cool.
From the moment you pick up a Fender Jaguar guitar or bass, you'll quickly realize how comfortable it is to hold and play. That's due to the offset waist body. As well, the shorter 24" scale length is great if you have a smaller build or hands and the extra controls give you freedom to shape your desired tone. Most Jaguars have the distinctive "floating" tremolo bridge while others feature modern options. If you prefer the subversive sounds of Nirvana and the Seattle music scene, take a look at the Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar NOS Electric Guitar 3-Color Sunburst. It's a stunning recreation of the battered 1965 guitar that the iconic rock musician played in the '90s with DiMarzio humbuckers and versatile electronics. It doesn't matter which side you play on either, because these pristine models come in both right- and left-handed versions.
Or, maybe you've been admiring the looks of the Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar Electric Guitar. It has many distinctive features and practical modifications designed according to the anti-hero guitar wunderkind's specs, including a custom-wound Bare Knuckle single-coil neck with bridge pickups and a custom-shaped maple neck with rosewood fingerboard based on Marr's 1965 Jaguar. You'll love the varied tones you can achieve with the switches and tremolo bar—plus, you'll find it easy and fun to play thanks to the short scale.
Whether you play instrumental surf rock with lots of spring reverb or '90s-style shoegaze with loads of distortion, the feel and sound of a new Fender Jaguar will blow you and your audience away. So go ahead and take your pick! Whatever Fender Jaguar catches your eye, its vintage vibe, legendary tone, and exceptional playability will be sure to put a smile on your face.
