The Fender Player Series Jaguar electric guitar is a fantastic marriage of vintage style and modern build quality. Adhering intimately to the original character of the Jaguar, this updated rendition delivers everything we've come to expect from the iconic model, whilst equipping itself to best meet the demands of today's guitarists.
Having developed a reputation for versatility, the Jaguar has been in the hands of some of the most enigmatic and boundary-pushing artists in music history including Kurt Cobain, John Frusciante, Johnny Marr, and Kevin Shields (to name but a select few). Following in the footsteps of greatness isn't easy to do, but having the right guitar to start with does help.
Classic Jaguar Styling
As they have for decades, Fender has gone with their tonewood of choice to craft the body - alder. Thanks to its mild-mannered temperament and highly versatile timbre, alder is the perfect choice to deliver the tonal diversity that the Jaguar is known for. The body is a joy to play with thanks to its lightweight feel and perfectly distributed weight across the body and neck. Fitted to the body is an adjustable bridge with vintage-style "floating" tremolo tailpiece and tremolo lock button, ensures that intonation is optimised and strings are simple to adjust if necessary, whilst string tension is upheld meticulously. Performing subtle vibrato-technique feels smooth, and the bridge responds with the utmost precision, returning to neutral position gracefully.
Fitted to the body is a C-shaped maple neck with a modern 9.5-inch fingerboard radius, offering a smooth and responsive playing-feel that is suited to all playing styles. The 24-inch scale length ensures that strings ring out with maximum sustain and generates a fantastic level of resonance. The 22 medium-jumbo frets are set into the Pau Ferro fingerboard and are a joy to navigate. The neck has been treated to a gloss urethane finish to preserve the maple for as long as possible whilst maintaining a smooth playing experience.
Thanks to the pairing of a player series humbucking bridge pickup and single-coil Jaguar neck pickup, a plethora of tones can be accessed with ease. Tapping into the unique control system and circuitry greatly expands your explorative options. Any tone you desire should be easily achieved with this incredible setup.
Whatever style of music you play, and however you play it, the Fender Player Series Jaguar Electric Guitar will help you find your perfect tone. Combining classic and modern appointments with exceptional results is something that comes naturally to the team at Fender, and this awesome model will impress all without compromise.
