Introduced in 1962 as one of Fenders deluxe models of the 60's, the short scale Fender Jaguar initially found favour with surf musicians due to its unique tone, and later became a favourite with alternative musicians throughout the years. With Fenders current offset output appealing more to those looking for modern specs, people are turning more and more to vintage Japanese made options. This MIJ 1994-1995 Fender Japan JG66 Jaguar combines all the quality you would expect from a Japanese made instruments with the vintage vibe of a classic early 60's Fender.
This MIJ Jaguar features a unique Burgundy Mist style custom colour finish finish with matching headstock, with the JG66-RC neck stamp seeming to indicate a 'rare colour'. It is a stunning looking instrument without a doubt, and an uncommon finish on Japanese models.

The pickups have the chime and character associated with vintage Jaguars, with the dual rhythm and lead circuitry giving you a world of tonal options.
