A super rare, super cool Jaguar with an interesting backstory; special ordered by Yamano Music in Japan (a store notorious for sending back any guitars not meeting their high QC standards), this guitar was one of 50 American Vintage Reissue custom-colour guitars built specially by Fender USA and assembled/QC'd by the Fender Custom Shop to ensure the highest build/finish standards. Faithful to the classic 1962 Jaguar specs in every way this particular guitar features a vibrant Ice Blue Metallic finish with matching headstock which has aged beautifully. This particular guitar was assembled/QC'd by legendary Custom Shop builder John Cruz - his signature is present under the tremolo - and whilst none of these guitars are true Custom Shop instruments, they were all finished to the highest standards demanded by the Custom Shop builders. Condition is very good with some minor finish dings and playwear, there is some yellowing of the finish (as is common with nitrocellulose finished guitars), this guitar has been played and loved!
Included is the original hard shell case and original Yamano paperwork. Please review all photographs as they form part of the description.
