This '66 Jaguar has a cool vibe and a very comfortable neck profile. This guitar is 100% original and has not been modified in any way. All electronics, solder joints, frets and parts are original along with the finish on the neck and body. The frets on this guitar have been dressed several times and are fairly low, but the guitar is still in good playing order. The finish shows signs of play wear, particularly in the forearm area, and buckle wear on the back of the body finish. There is finish checking throughout the entire guitar. The maple neck is worn on the back from play wear and the metal hardware has some scratching and pitting. The pickguard has shrunken and is curling slightly on the bass side by the bridge (see photos).
These block neck Jaguars are super cool and this one is no exception to the rule. It's extremely rare to find a '60s Fender guitar that has been played a lot and hasn't been slightly or extensively reworked. This short scale stunner is ready for a new home.
