Introduced in 1962, the Jaguar was intended to be Fender's new top of the line model, but with its unique sound, switching options and shorter scale, it would go on to find favour with alternative musicians throughout the following decades.
This 1968 Fender Jaguar is a great example of a later '60s Fender offset guitar, with the style that is synonymous with these later models paired with that classic Jaguar tone. The Alder body is fitted with the original single coil pickups, that when paired with the lead & rhythm circuitry can cover a wealth of tonal options. One of the most distinguishing features of Fender offsets of this period is the block inlaid and bound neck introduced in 1967, giving the instrument a particularly deluxe look. The neck dates to February '68.
