A short-scale (24”) instrument, blinged out with chrome appointments galore, the Jaguar turned heads upon its release in 1962. This Fender Custom Shop rendition, the 1964 Jaguar Lush Closet Classic, brings the original into the modern era with slightly “slinkier” playing feel, classic features and unique tone. The offset, two-piece select alder body wears a Lush Closet Classic finish that’s been aged like a fine wine, giving it the look and feel of a well-cared-for authentic original, while the tinted, riftsawn maple neck sports a “ ‘62 Jaguar” profile, along with a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 22 6105 frets. The vintage-style adjustable 6-saddle Jaguar bridge is as authentic as it gets, with period-correct mute and “floating” tremolo tailpiece with lock button.
Packed with authentic Fender tone—articulate and crisp— the ‘62 Jaguar single-coil pickups incorporate the traditional Jaguar wiring that gives it a distinct voice; not only is the famous lead/rhythm circuit (with discrete controls) present, the bass-cutting “strangle” circuit is also included, to shape your tone even more.
Other features include 3-ply Parchment pickguard, floating vibrato, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
