A Really Fine Early 1966 Candy Apple Red Jaguar
1966 Fender Jaguar
This forty-two year old, 13 3/4-inch-wide 'custom-color' Jaguar weighs just 8.40 lbs. Solid alder contoured body. One-piece, sigle-bound, light birds-eye maple neck with a "B" nut width of just over 1 5/8 inches, a scale length of 24 inches and a wonderful thick profile. Single-bound curved veneer rosewood fretboard with 22 original medium frets and inlaid pearloid dot position markers. Headstock with matching "Candy Apple Red" finish and decal with "Fender" logo in gold with black trim and four patent numbers in black below. "Offset Contour Body" decal at the ball end of the headstock. Single "butterfly" string tree with nylon spacer. The neck is stamped "5 FEB 66B." Four-bolt neck plate with serial number stamped between the top two screws. Individual Fender "F" tuners with octagonal metal buttons. Two white oblong Strat-like pickups with notched metal side plates with outputs of 7.02k and 6.08k. Three-layer white over black plastic pickguard with ten screws. Two controls (one volume, one tone) and jack socket on lower metal plate adjoining pickguard on the treble side, circuit selector (rhythm/lead) slide switch and two roller controls (one volume, one tone) on upper metal plate adjoining pickguard on the bass side, and three pickup selector slide switches on metal plate inset into the pickguard on the treble side. The potentiometers are stamped "137 6519" (CTS, May 1965). Black plastic Jaguar knobs with white markings. Jaguar-type floating tremolo and six-saddle bridge with adjustable mute. The word "Jaguar" on the headstock decal has worn away and the foam rubber mute has been renewed. This 100% original guitar (except for the replaced rubber mute pad) is in exceptionally fine (9.00++) condition. The candy apple red finish is bright and fresh and shows none of the usual fading. There is some very light finish checking and a few miniscule indentations on the body. The original frets and fretboard show almost no signs of wear. There is some slight varnish loss on the treble-side of the neck extending along the first nine frets. Complete with the original tremolo arm, the original black leather guitar strap, the original 12-page hang-tag instruction manual, and an early guitar cord. Housed in the original Fender three-latch rectangular black hardshell case with orange plush lining and black leather ends (9.25). (#2015)
