Retrofret Stock # 4847. Fender Jaguar Model Solid Body Electric Guitar (1963), made in Fullerton, California, serial # 97889, sunburst lacquer finish, alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, original blond tolex hard shell case. A very nice Pre-CBS Jaguar, all original and great sounding. Typical '63-4 features: unbound rosewood fingerboard with clay dot inlay, blended 3-color sunburst, gold "transition" logo decal. The Jaguar remains an under-appreciated guitar with several interesting features. The model features the same vibrato unit and rhythm/lead circuit as the Jazzmaster with the addition of individual on/off switches for the pickups; the "Jag" is a flexible guitar with a lot of sonic options. The scale length is shorter than other top-line Fender guitars and the pickups are optimized for clarity and crispness�factors that led to the Jaguar losing popularity in the late '60's as twang went out and distortion and crunch came in! Nevertheless these are top-of-the line 60's Fenders; extremely popular when new and very high quality guitars.Overall length is 40 1/8 in. (101.9 cm.), 14 3/4 in. (37.5 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 1/2 in. (3.8 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 in. (610 mm.). Width of nut is 1 5/8 in. (41 mm.). A nice, clean original Pre-CBS Jaguar. Minor wear overall; Fender Mute is functional (and actually pretty cool sounding!). Beautiful original HSC, just a nice example overall! Excellent Condition.
