Dating a fender jaguar
The Fender Jaguar is an electric guitar by Fender Musical Instruments characterized by an offset-waist body, a relatively unusual switching system with two separate circuits for lead and rhythm, and a medium-scale 24" neck.Owing some roots to the Jazzmaster, it was introduced in 1962 as Fender's feature-laden top-of-the-line model, designed to lure players from Gibson.In the 1990s the popularity of the Jaguar and Jazzmaster exploded after they were used by guitarists such as Scott Hill, John Squire, One of the reasons why the Jaguar was used by indie rock artists is the sonic possibilities offered by the bridge construction.The bridge and vibrato unit of the Jaguar and the Jazzmaster help produce sympathetic resonance since there is a considerable length of string between the bridge and the tailpiece.
In 2012, Fender replaced the entire AVRI line with the American Vintage (AV) Series.
As with the AVRI model, the headstock on the AV '65 in Candy Apple Red did not feature a matching headstock.
Fender did offer a limited production run of the '65 Jaguar in Ice Blue Metallic, which did feature a matching headstock.
The Jaguar never enjoyed the popularity of its Stratocaster and Telecaster siblings.
After several upgrades—which included custom finishes, a bound neck, pearloid block inlays, maple fingerboard with black binding, and block inlays—the Jaguar was discontinued in December 1975 adopted the Jaguar for both contrarian and economic reasons; its lack of mainstream use made it both a style statement and less expensive than guitars of comparable quality.
