The sound, look and feel of the Fender Jaguar is something that will live on in music for a long, long time thanks to a timeless design and undeniable vibe. Fender now presents the American Original ‘60s Jaguar that combines what we love about the original short-scale 1962 model with a few modern to make it a player’s dream!
The wax-potted Pure Vintage '62 Jaguar single-coil pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. We kept the Jaguar's unique circuitry intact for this incarnation; the familiar lead/rhythm circuits are there, along with the bass-cut ‘strangle’ switch. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware--including floating tremolo with lock button and push-in arm--vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood ‘breathe’ naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.
An inspiring instrument, the American Original '60s Jaguar is a great way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the choice of axemen with attitude.
