The Fender American Original 60s Jaguar Guitar in 3-Colour Sunburst recreates the classic short-scale model that drew in and inspired so many surf, punk, and alternative scene guitarists. From the striking visuals to the elaborate switching system, with optimised playing comfort and a road-ready hardiness, the Jaguar became an instant classic that has been sought out by players ever since.
Stylish Jaguar body
The Jaguar body shape is designed with an offset waist, which makes it comfortable to play in both a seated or standing position - as well as offering a distinctive look compared to the Tele' or Strat'. Built using alder - a Fender favourite - the American Original 60s Jaguar is lightweight and easy to wield, delivering a well-balanced tonal palette that sets the foundation for highly versatile tones.
Finished in 3-Colour Sunburst, this Jag' has a distinctly vintage aesthetic, which is complemented by a 3-ply tortoiseshell pickguard. The body is protected by a resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer that allows the finish to age gracefully over time.
Comfortable neck design
Joined to the body is a familiar feeling maple neck, which is shaped to the '60s "C"-shape profile that sits sweetly in the hand. Married to the neck is a heavenly round-laminated rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 vintage-tall frets that are encircled by 1-ply white binding. The vintage-tall frets pair well with the 9.5-inch radius to ensure seamless transitions along the entire length of the fingerboard.
The Fender American Original 60s Jaguar is equipped with a pair of Pure Vintage '65 single-coil pickups, which are designed with meticulous attention-to-detail to faithfully recreate the response of the originals. Featuring the same wiring design, alnico 5 magnets, and unique Jaguar circuitry, the consistency of tone is flawless. The familiar lead/rhythm circuits are present, as well as the bass-cut "strangle" switch. Whether you're laying out some chiming chops, sweeping through some sweet riffs, or running through intricately woven licks, the well-executed electronics enable you to find the perfect tone with ease.
As with the original model, the body is home to a floating tremolo with tremolo lock button and push-in tremolo arm for sublime vibrato control. The headstock bears Fender's pure vintage single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout every performance.
Every Fender American Original 60s Jaguar Guitar in 3-Colour Sunburst is supplied with a deluxe brown hardshell case to keep it in pristine condition at home or on the move.
