A hyper rare Fender Jaguar L series from 1964 in 100% original Shoreline Gold finish. Real collector.
Production of the Fender Jaguar began in 1962.
Externally similar to the Jazzmaster, with an asymmetrical body with a single cut, the Jaguar is very different from its big sister.
With a reduced scale of 24 inches, it is the first guitar from Fender to have twenty-two frets on the neck. Its two single coil pickups are narrower than those of the Jazzmaster and have a toothed metal plate, which according to Leo Fender was supposed to concentrate the magnetic flux and thus increase the output level. Although Jaguar and Jazzmaster share the same principle of two independent circuits, the more complex Jaguar lead circuit is controlled by three “on / off” selectors placed on the lower part of the body; the first two activate the neck and bridge pickups respectively, the third a resistor that acts as a high-pass filter, producing a characteristic high tone.
Another peculiarity of the Jaguar is the presence of a retractable rubber device, or mute, allowing to choke the strings, a function appreciated by surf guitarists. Like the Jazzmaster, the Jaguar uses a unique "floating" vibrato system, very different from the Stratocaster's synchronized vibrato.
Leo Fender preferred the design of the floating system, which allows the bridge and strings to move longitudinally when the vibrato bar is activated, and therefore does not disturb the tuning of the guitar.
Guitare Collection offers you this very rare Fender Jaguar L series from 1964 in Shoreline Gold finish in excellent condition.
Shoreline Gold was a color used on Pontiac cars between 1959 and 1960.
What makes this guitar all the more rare is that Fender used this color only between 1960 and 1965, and only used it very little on the Jaguar model.
This wonder comes with its original Hardcase.
