FENDER VINTAGE 62 JAGUAR

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

Introduced in 1962, the Jaguar® paired brighter pickups with a shorter 24” scale and Jazzmaster®-like control layout. Our American Vintage ’62 Jaguar has all the distinctive Jaguar features, including a trio of sliding pickup selector switches, upper bout rotary volume wheels, chrome hardware and tremolo lock. The unusual Fender mute is a built-in but removable string-damping device designed for surf music.

There’s no more comfortable guitar whether standing or sitting than the Fender ’62 Jaguar Electric Guitar. A faster, smarter offspring of 1958’s Jazzmaster, this baby has much easier action because of its reduced 24" scale length. The single-coil pickups resemble those of the Strat with the addition of a "keeper" that increases current through the pickup coil and reduces sensitivity to hum. The result is more kick in the mids and less noise. The Fender Jag shares the same preset circuitry found on the Jazzmaster and a trio of selector switches. An individual on/off switch for each pickup and a subtle high-pass filter switch round out the Jag’s tonal versatility. Maple neck on alder body with rosewood fretboard and vintage-style floating trem. Funky (removable) string dampener is included for historical accuracy. Includes Fender hardshell case.
