FENDER JAGUAR 1963-64 - Blond custom color
We are very proud to offer this beautiful and very rare pre-CBS custom-color Fender Jaguar, 100% original, built between late 1963 and early '64.
Potentiometers are dated 48th week of '63, neck is dated January 1964, "L" serial number. An exceptional guitar, made even more precious by an original see-through blond finish over a nicely-grained ash body. Maple neck, beautiful brazilian rosewood fretboard with clay-dots. The nitrate tortoise pickguard is intact and perfectly matches the body's finish, for one of the most classic and beloved looks in Fender's aesthetics. The tuners are the original Kluson Deluxe "single-line" units and work fine. The bridge is complete with the Fender mute and the chrome-plated cover, the floating-tremolo still has its original arm. The electric circuitry is untouched and all the solder-joints at pots, pickups, jack and switches are intact.
A clean and original guitar: it has only been refretted and a new nut has been installed, in order to restore the guitar's perfect playability. A very professional job with correct specs and materials, and this is the only work ever done on the guitar during its long life. The body shows moderate playing wear and there's a very small ding on the neck, but the overall conditions are really excellent. Everything works as it's supposed to do, the guitar is a joy to play and sounds great.
It comes with its gorgeous original brown-tolex hardshell case, rarely seen with a Jaguar from late '63 when the most common match was the white-tolex model, which adds another rare touch to a beautiful and precious vintage Fender guitar.
