Overview

Created to be the top-of-the-line Fender in 1962, the short-scale (24") Jaguar was an instant hit with surf bands. Over the years it was adopted by punk and alternative bands, in part because of its unique "strangle" bass-cut switch and angular good looks. The American Original '60 Jaguar perfectly captures that vibe and sound, with an updated, modern fretboard radius for easy playing. Period-correct pickups and vintage tuners match with the original locking floating tremolo for an amazingly versatile instrument.

    Comments about Fender American Original '60s Jaguar Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    Just received this and it is beautiful in every way.
    Yes it is not an AVRI
    Yes the neck radius is not vintage spec (9.5, not 7.25)
    Yes there is white binding (like a '65 btw)
    Yes it has a gloss nitro lacquer (beautiful btw)

    These and other elements (the pickups esp and the overall build quality/playability) make this guitar amazing and also make it original (which doesn't mean original specs—it means uniquely blending old and new into an original instrument).

    I sound like a rep. but I'm not—just a guitar player/collector very much taken by this incredible instrument!
