Surfalicious looks with icy-cool features.

There's no more comfortable guitar whether standing or sitting than the Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar. A faster, smarter offspring of 1958's Jazzmaster, this baby has much easier action because of its reduced 24" scale length. The single-coil pickups resemble those of the Strat with the addition of a "keeper" that increases current through the pickup coil and reduces sensitivity to hum. The result is more kick in the mids and less noise. The Fender Jag shares the same preset circuitry found on the Jazzmaster and a trio of selector switches. An individual on/off switch for each pickup and a subtle high-pass filter switch round out the Jag's tonal versatility. Maple neck on alder body with rosewood fretboard and vintage-style floating trem. Funky (removable) string dampener is included for historical accuracy. Includes Fender hardshell case.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

Features
  • Alder body
  • Maple neck with rosewood fretboard
  • Special Design American Vintage Jaguar single-coil pickups
  • Individual on/off switches and rotary volume wheels
  • Lead and rhythm circuits
  • Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners
  • Vintage-style floating trem
  • Chrome hardware

You'll buy it because it's collectible and consummately funky, but you'll play it because you LOVE it!

Amazing!

By John Topper

from San Francisco, CA USA

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

I'm in a 60's band that's trying to recreate the Jimi Hendrix style of music, and I'm the guitarist so you can imagine I have some really hard parts to play, so I would need a guitar that could keep up with those sounds and handle distortion well. This did it all and more I thought something like this would run around 2 grand! As soon as I found this I thought it might be a joke but there's nothing funny about this best guitar I've ever owned! Fender makes things more amazing than any company ever!

Beware this wild cat

By L-nGGQZ

from Parisian area, France

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

As a collector, I own 12 of these from all eras and makes. Vintage american, Japanese reissue, American reissue. What's so nice about it is that each of these models has its own character, pickups, neck profile and width especially for the American vintage that came with 4 different width : I've got B, C and D, never found an A -the slimmest). I've never been deceived by Jaguies, and I would advise anyone to try one in his life, just to give it a go. It might be a revelation and the start of a true love affair. I won't part with any of mine.

This is undoubtable one of the best guitars ever to come off Fenders production line

By Martyn Pakston

from Middlesbrough UK

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

The things that make this guitar so great is the unlimited amount of tonal variation, yet relatively straightforward design. The simple elegance of the machine is obvious. If anyone has one which is surplus to requirements please do not hesitate to contact me.

great guitar!

By l-DfYcB

from queens: new york

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

I leaned how to play guitar 2 years ago and I finally decided to buy a "pro" guitar. I bought this one along with a standard strat as a backup. This guitar sounds so great. With gain crunched up high complex chords sound super smooth on it. Its a bit pricey but its totally worth it. I love this guitar because its retro sound, coupled with distortion, sounds like classic kurt cobain stuff. This is Fenders jewel instrument that every Fender fan should look up to.

The best next to the Jag-Stang

By Kyle S.

from Oshkosh, WI USA

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

This guitar is by far one of the best guitars I've seen. Being someone who idolizes Kurt Cobain it has definitely prompted me to also look at buying a Jag-Stang. The Jaguar is the best next To the Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang and the Fender Mustang.

This is THE guitar

By Richard-LhuIG

from Glasgow Scotland

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

If you want to play smooth , wacka wacka surfy beats when your in a sunny mood, this is the guitar for you. If you want to slide on a bottleneck and waaow waaow away some blues riffs, this guitar is for you. If you want to get together with your friend that just bought a trombone and impro some jazz number to tap your feet to, this is the guitar for you. If you want to lock the door, turn up the gain and pretend you ar Kurt Cobain, this is the guitar for you!

great price for such a great guitar.

By max-k7844

from surrey uk

Comments about Fender '62 Jaguar Electric Guitar:

for guitarist's that play near the bridge it may not bother them but the switch's do get in the way if u play near the fret board. i thought it was the only set back of this guitar. great for classic rock, blues, even jazz really easy to play guitar great sound even in some really nasty amps. great guitar.
