Scottsdale, AZ. (Jan. 11, 2012) — Fender is proud to celebrate five decades of the Jaguar guitar by introducing the 50th Anniversary Jaguar model. The instrument takes players back to 1962, when Fender introduced an unusual new guitar that paired a modified Jazzmaster body style and elaborate control layout with a shorter scale and smaller pickups with more output. The resulting Jaguar was the fourth and last of Fender’s original lineup of standard electric guitars.
The U.S.-built 50th Anniversary Jaguar celebrates that history and combines old and new into the finest of all Jaguar guitars. Features include the classic 24” scale length, a new one-degree neck-angle-pocket cut that improves pitch, a re-positioned tremolo plate that increases bridge break angle and sustain, and specially designed hot Jaguar single-coil neck and bridge pickups that deliver fatter tone and more output.
Other premium features include a offset alder body with lacquer finish, C-shaped maple neck with lacquer finish and vintage-style truss rod, 9.5”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays, separate “lead” and rhythm tone circuits with their own dedicated volume and tone controls, two-position tone switch and on/off slide switch for each pickup, three-ply pickguard (Mint Green-Black-Mint Green), and vintage-style floating tremolo bridge with lock button and chrome cover. Accessories include a deluxe brown case, strap, cable and a set of flatwound strings. Available in classic vintage Fender finishes Lake Placid Blue, Candy Apple Red and Burgundy Mist Metallic.
