A desirable vintage of the high-end classic with its short-scale neck and dual-circuit electronics.

The Fender American Vintage '65 Jaguar Electric Guitar marks a key chapter in Jaguar history. That is, after surf and before punk, when the sole ’60s member of Fender’s big four guitars staked its own gradually growing claim in the hearts and hands of a select group of alternative-minded guitarists who appreciated its distinctive design and offbeat status. The classic Jaguar shorter scale, dual-circuit layout and sleekly chromed-out design are here, along with a bound round-laminated fingerboard and larger pearl dot inlays—elegant touches the Jaguar acquired in 1965, merely three years after its introduction.

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best selling guitars (their early-’80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was “back” as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, they’ve completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars.

    Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    Jaguars are my thang. Ever since I first got my hands on one in 1966. I've had a couple AVRI's which are very nice repros, IMHO, but this new '65 interpretation is more like a Custom Shop affair than their previous efforts. It's like they finally realize that there is a dedicated tribe of loyal devotees out there. It all depends on the type of music you play--but, for surf, exotica, spaghetti western styles, there is simply nothing more appropriate than a jag, a jazzmaster, or a strat. The thing about the jag is the 24" scale. If you have ham sized fists, this is not the guitar for you. But for players with smaller hands, it's a gunslinger guitar. I can't play 25.5" scales any more, and I have no problem with jags. This model has a fatter neck than the AVRI, and white binding, but other than that the differences are not that great--just, obvious greater attention to detail. A big deal has been made of the bridge, too big if you ask me. I don't care for the buzzstop, and I have tried the mustang saddles, which are slightly too wide; I've tried the corian and the graphtech, in the end I keep coming back to the original format. I have a Johhny Marr version, which is nice, and has it's points, but I think I like this model a little better--I give it a slight edge. The 50th anniversary model was a fail, IMHO--with this '65 version, it feels like they finally got the reissue right.
