Fender Japan Jaguar JG66-85 Sunburst 2007-10
Fender Jag, sunburst, made in Japan 2007-10. This is a classic that really doesn't need a lot of introduction, but hey; here we are right? The Jag has gained a lot of fans for it's absolute ease of play; the slinky short scale, slim neck and perfectly weighted offset body make it a dream in the hands on stage. Throw in the charming offset vibrato and the handy dual circuit electronics and you've got a whole lot of jangle, thump and sparkle to play with. This is a textbook example of Jag-goodness; it just works exactly as it should. The sunburst finish looks better for a bit of wear around the edges and the neck has been played-in nicely. The headstock features a quirky little streak in the grain that seems to underline the 'JAGUAR' text; it's a cool little idiosyncrasy. If you're into making noisy rock and roll, I'm sure you'll make friends with this little party machine very quickly indeed.
