Fender Japan Jaguar JG66-85 Candy Apple Red 1998
Fender Jag, candy apple red, crafted in Japan 1997-00. There's really not a whole lot that needs to be said about this; surely the pictures are worth at least a thousand words. Jags in this finish always look absolutely stellar; it really brings out the curves of the body just right. The dual circuit electronics and quirky vibrato offer that unique jangle and spanky attack Jags do so well; just add several nasty effects pedals and stack up some walls of sound for the public to enjoy. The slim neck and offset body sit nicely in the hands; it's a very easy player and a lot of fun. These are getting harder to source and pricier by the day, so add this to your quiver of offbeat noisemachines while times are good. Proper cool!

The back has a handful of light scuffs and surface scratches but no major marks. The sides have a few little things to note: a small chip and some marks on the shoulder, a small chip and some dimples around from the jack, dimples on the lower horn. The front has no major marks, just some dimples behind the bridge and on the shoulder and some play wear marks on the guard and horn. Overall: very good condition (8/10)
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. Frets have some normal wear but are pretty even and don't need immediate attention, 7/10 for life left. All electrics tested and working properly. Wearing fresh 11/49s Moonshiners strings.
