1962 Fender Jaguar in Olympic White.
In 1962, Fender introduced a new line to their already strong catalogue – the Jaguar, launched as the more expensive line to the Stratocaster & Telecaster. This version of the Jaguar was one of the first off the production line in the opening year and is an iconic version that holds such history, along with a brilliant investment to take into the future.
This is no exception to the rarity and build-quality of these early Fender.

This is in brilliant condition for a 53 year old guitar. Has some knocks and scratches that all add to the character of such a beauty!
This guitar was purchased as the original neck and body, including the string tree and routing cavity. The body had been refinished many many years ago in an olympic white finish and the headstock to match. The previous owner than added many new parts to get this to the spec of a brilliant players guitar. These additions include a set of jangly 62/64 Mojo Jaguar pickups and vintage spec wiring, Fender USA switches, pots, sliders, tuners, knobs and pickguard, a Crazyparts aged vintage spec neck plate, Dunlop strap locks, Fender USA chrome control plate, tremolo unit, arm, bridge, mute system, foam pickup mounts and under-pickguard shield.
Overall, this is a very rare and collectable guitar. This has been brought up to a quality that is to die for! Plays and sounds an absolute beast. You will not find one looking and playing like this for this sort of money again!
