The Fender Jaguar is one of the most popular lines in the Fender offset collection, a real player's favourite; it has been a staple in the roster for over 50 years. The Fender Custom Shop '62 Jaguar is the absolute pinnacle of Fender offset design.
This guitar has some serious mojo! With a 2-piece Alder body, finished in a sweet Olympic White, this Custom Shop Jag boasts a Journeyman finish. The Journeyman is a very lightly aged nitro finish; this gives the look and feel of a vintage guitar that has been lovingly cared for over the years. This finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other more modern finishes.
Classic Jag tones come from the superb '62 Jaguar pickups with flat magnets. Jaguars have seen a resurgence of late and this particular model is bound to attract some serious interest. The tinted plain grain Maple neck features a cracking Rosewood fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, a 9.5" radius and a 62 Jag profile. It's smooth, and comfortable.
With an RSD J-bridge and vintage style tuning heads you get great stability and intonation, this is a real players guitar.
With a real vintage vibe, this is a real cool cat!
