OVERVIEW

Classic Jag features and American vintage pickups.

For guitarists who must have original-era Jaguar sound, look and feel, the Classic Series '60s Jaguar Lacquer epitomizes the instrument during its debut decade, when guitarists from coast to coast used it to ride waves of reverb-drenched surf and instrumental music. With authentic features including a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Fiesta Red and dual American Vintage Jaguar pickups, everything about it takes you back to a wildly creative time when rock music came into its own, from surf to psychedelic and more. Includes case.

    Comments about Fender Classic '60s Jaguar Lacquer Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    If you are looking for a nice, quality Fender Jaguar without dropping 2000+, this guitar is a must. I own many American Fender guitars and this guitar is equally as nice as them. The build quality is superb and the neck is absolutely amazing. Smoothest feel and quality rosewood. The American pickups sound great and give you a wide variety or tonal options and break up very nicely with overdrive or distortion. The tremolo bar it's easy and comfortable to use and doesn't put the guitar out of tune. All in all, it's 100% worth the money and I highly recommend this specific guitar over the classic player or Kurt Cobain Jaguars.

      Comments about Fender Classic '60s Jaguar Lacquer Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

      Thiis fender lives up to its name for the 60's surf music style. It makes you reverb go wild and the pickups are fantastic. I'm a older person who was around durign the sixties surf muics and this brings back my teenage surf music, the fiesta red is a fantastic finish for this fender. This thing stays in tune not like the orginal 60's one in which you had to tune about every 5 minutes.

      Comments about Fender Classic '60s Jaguar Lacquer Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

      Nice guitar. Very versatile. I did replace the saddles with graphtech which is a cheaper fix than dropping a mustang bridge in. Unfortunately you'll likely have to do one or the other. I knocked the low E right out of the saddle within about two minutes of fiddling with it out of the box.

        Comments about Fender Classic '60s Jaguar Lacquer Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

        I love love love this guitar. This guitar is the best guitar over ever owned. It makes songwriting fun. It plays great. I've owned American Strats, PRS, Gibson, and this guitar is more my style. I always thought it had to say MADE IN USA to be great. I WAS WRONG! AGAIN, it is the greatest guitar I've ever owned. May not be for everyone. But, for my style, it can't be beat. If you are thinking about a Jag, BUY THIS ONE.

          This guitar is every bit as good as a real 65 jaguar.
          Take it from me as I own 77 guitars which about half are fender solid bodies .
