Fender '66 Reissue Jaguar JG66-85 Candy Apple Red 1997-00

Sold out

Fender Jaguar, candy apple red, crafted in Japan 1997-00. The Jag is a well loved classic, and rightly so. The slim neck, 24" scale and super comfy offset body make it an absolute breeze to play. Add in the famous dual-circuit electronics that offer so many possibilities, and it's easy to fall in love. This guy is in amazing shape for 20ish years old, the finish is looking superb. The grain on the neck and headstock is especially tasty, it's features some really pretty maple. This doles out the spanky, rich Jag-jangle with reckless abandon, it's very fun to play. You can't really go wrong with a candy-apple Jag, it's a guitar that looks top-notch on stage every time.

Finish: candy apple red (CAR) , 3-ply white guard 
Body: alder
Neck: maple with rosewood board, dot inlays
Mods: none

Cosmetic condition notes: Minor finish wear. There's a couple of minor dents on the back near the rear strap pin and some very minor scratches on the front behind the bridge, a little bit of pitting on the chrome, and some play-scratches on and around the guard. Overall: very good condition (9/10)

Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. Minor fret wear, but plenty of life left, around 7/10. All electrics tested and working properly. Note that in the pics, one saddle was missing a screw, but that's been rectified. Setup with fresh 11/49s and playing great.
