Vintage ’63 Pre-CBS Jaguar – refinished in classic Olympic White and ageing beautifully with lots of lacquer checking on close inspection. It’s had a refret at some stage of its life (professional job and barely noticeable),the frets have very little wear and everything works perfectly.

The spec includes an Alder body, comfortable medium-profile Maple neck and Brazilian Rosewood board with 7.25” radius and clay dots. It has repro vintage tuners and the mute has been removed for a cleaner look, but is included in its original case, alongside its trem arm. The bridge pickup has been switched out for a slightly later 60’s grey-bottom Fender single coil.

In terms of tone and feel, this Jaguar is simply a joy to play and a classic example of the guitar that was Fender's top-tier instrument in '63. The pickups have the twang, chime, and cut for which these single coils are known, and in design and output they're virtually identical to a Strat pickup, albeit with the metal "claw" surrounds that both focus the magnetic field of the pickups and reduce unwanted hum. The myriad of switching options however, ensure that the Jaguar can cover much more sonic range than a Strat, while still covering the traditional Fender single coil territory. In the Lead Circuit (hexagonal control plate), the "strangle" switch cuts low end and can make for great tic-tac tones. The Rhythm Circuit on the guitar's bass side horn introduces a set of darker tonalities exclusive to the neck pickup, with a richness and low end that fills things out nicely and is great for driving a tube amp or your favourite fuzz box.
