About This Listing

Up for sale, a 1994 Fender Jaguar, model JG66 in well played, 100% original condition and in good working order. A faithful reissue of the Jaguar's original specs from the model's 1962 introductory year, this guitar was manufactured in Japan's Fujigen factory, with a classic Olympic White finish. For surfy snap and twang, it's hard to beat the Jaguar, a model adopted by a huge range of genres for its cutting Fender tone and easy playability. With a percussive clarity and snarl in the bridge position to warmer, darker tonalities at the neck, there's actually a surprisingly wide range of tones available on the Jaguar, a range further enhanced by the Rhythm Circuit on the lower bout (for even darker tones) and a bass cut switch on the hexagonal switch plate (for more thinned out, treble-centric sizzle). Weighing in at 9lbs 2oz and balancing well on a strap, this Jag has a solid acoustic resonance that translates well through the pickups. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar where we specialize in Fender Offset instruments, this Jag plays very well with fresh 10-46 strings and low, comfortable action.

The one-piece maple neck has a smooth gloss finish, medium C profile, and slab rosewood fretboard with pearloid dot inlays. The 24" scale neck retains its original, vintage style fretwire, which has been recently leveled and crowned, showing virtually no wear and playing cleanly up the neck with no buzzing or dead spots. The stock nut is intact as well, with a traditional 1 5/8" width, and the fretboard radius also matches vintage spec at 7 1/4" The headstock retains the original Gotoh, Kluson-style tuning machines which have light patina, adding to their vintage look. The tuners still turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should.

All of the electronics are in good working order, with individual on/off switches for each pickup on the Lead Circuit, in addition to the bass cut (or "strangle switch") on/off toggle and Master Volume and Tone knobs. The Rhythm Circuit has its own pair of Volume and Tone wheels in addition to the on/off toggle switch that engages this circuit, which adds a darker tone cap exclusively for use on the neck pickup. The chrome control plates are all in good shape with only a few small scuffs, and the stock bridge is in great shape. The vibrato unit works well for surfy warbles and dives and comes complete with its vibrato arm.

Cosmetically, this guitar looks stunning in its original Olympic White finish, which contrasts nicely with the tortoise pickguard. This guitar shows some playwear from honest use, with various dings and nicks on the finish, most of which are on the back and around the contours of the offset body, but some of which also extend to the top. There are also a couple extremely small marks on the neck profile that don't affect playability in the slightest, and some light scratching on the chrome neck plate.

A gigbag is included (not pictured).
