1965 saw the Jaguar really come into its own, gaining popularity with those looking for something alternative and distinct, the Fender American Vintage 65 Jaguar recreates the guitar that cemented the model’s place as one of Fender’s big four.
The unique body shape of the Fender American Vintage 65 Jaguar has been carved from alder, finished in a three-colour sunburst and treated to a Fender Flash Coat Lacquer, atop which lies a four-ply brown shell pickguard with a vintage bevel.
Joined to the body of the Fender American Vintage 65 Jaguar is a maple neck, carved to a thick C-shape, with a bound round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with 22 vintage-size frets and large pearl dot inlays.
The Fender American Vintage ‘65 Jaguar has also been loaded up with the bespoke American Vintage '65 single-Coil Jaguar pickups, which have been specially voiced to give the sound of the original 1965 model. This is of course alongside the Jag staple of dual-circuit wiring and controls, and a (American Vintage) floating tremolo with tremolo lock button.
