The Squier Classic Vibe '70s Jaguar turns up the volume on throwback style and sound. It produces a vibrant tone through its dual Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups. Guitarists with smaller hands will appreciate the 24" scale length and slim, comfortable C-shaped neck with an easy-playing 9.5" radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets. This Jaguar pays homage to the original with a vintage-style tremolo system for expressive string bending effects and a floating bridge with barrel saddles for solid intonation. This retro Squier model also features 1970s-inspired headstock markings, nickel-plated hardware, and a slick vintage-tinted gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.

Innovative Circuitry Provides Unparalleled Control

At the heart of the Squier Classic Vibe '70s Jaguar's tone are its dual Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups, but it's the guitar's innovative circuitry that provides unprecedented control. A circuit selector switch activates either the lead or rhythm circuit. The lead circuit controls bridge and neck pickup volume as well as master tone. The rhythm circuit activates only the neck pickup with dedicated volume and tone knobs for shaping its mellower sound. On/off switches for each pickup allow for further tonal variations in either circuit. These sophisticated electronics allow guitarists to achieve a wide range of vintage and modern Jaguar tones.

Vintage-Style Bridge and Tremolo Add Expression

The Squier Classic Vibe '70s Jaguar aims to capture the playability and tone of the original Jaguar. It features a vintage-style tremolo system and floating bridge with barrel saddles, which allow for expressive string bending effects and solid intonation. The tremolo arm can be used for subtle pitch variations or more extreme warbling sounds. The bridge's individual saddles make it easy to adjust each string's height and intonation for optimal playability up and down the fretboard.

Other Features Capture the Jaguar Essence

Several other features contribute to the Squier Classic Vibe '70s Jaguar's authentic vibe and tone. A poplar body and maple neck provide a resonant and articulate tone. The C-shaped neck profile and 9.5" radius fingerboard allow for comfortable chording and soloing. Narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings and achieve a vintage-style action. Block inlays provide an retro esthetic, while the four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard protects the guitar's electronics.
