Fender 1965 Jaguar Candy Apple Red
Fender introduced a new top-of-the-line electric guitar model in 1962: the Jaguar. The pricelist offered a basic Sunburst Jaguar at $379.50. The Jaguar used a similar offset-waist body shape to the earlier Jazzmaster, and also shared that guitar's separate bridge and vibrato unit, although the Jaguar had the addition of a spring-loaded string mute at the bridge. This is one of Fender's brilliant custom colors, Candy Apple Red and features the glowing matching headstock. A fine playing twang machine if I ever did see one. The neck has the date of April 1, 65. No fooling! So it must be technically one of the last "PRE CBS" Jaguars manufactured. It also features the "L series" chrome back plate. Comes with the old style Fender hard shell case.
