Fender Japan Jaguar JG66-85 Candy Apple Red 1999-02
Fender Jag, candy apple, crafted in Japan 1999-02. Not many guitars look better on stage than a candy apple Jag. This one wears the colour well; the decades have put a few marks here and there, but that only adds to the vintage cool. The combination of a short scale, slim neck and perfectly weighted offset body is a joy in the hands; this is an easy player that'll surely warm your heart. The classic Jag-jangle is best enjoyed with copious amounts of distortion and ambient effects, but it'll clean up for a cheeky surf-sesh equally happily. If you need a guitar that'll up your swagger instantly, this one will surely do the trick.
