A very original, very cool transitional Jaguar from November 1965 with the sought-after bound neck with dot inlays look. Though many similar guitars from the era suffered from relentless modifications, this Jag has all-original electronics (down to the solder joints), striking celluloid tortoise pickguard, string mute, tremolo arm, and original hard case, the guitar has been quite well preserved.
The guitar is in very good condition overall, with minimal finish imperfections aside from the usual nitrocellulose finish crazing and some buckle rash on the rear. Features the beautiful ‘65 style 3-Tone Sunburst still presents very well. Sonically, the Jaguar has all of the brightness and clarity that you can expect from a ‘60s example, and this one is a particularly great sounding example. The bridge pickup has a particular sparkle that really shines through a cranked tube amp on the verge of breakup, and also performs exceptionally well through various pedals. The tremolo arm action is fluid and responsive, and returns to pitch with great accuracy.
Included in the sale is the original hard shell case, please review all photos as they form part of the description.
