Fender Japan Jaguar JG66-85 Vintage White 1998
Fender Jag, vintage white, crafted in Japan 1997-00. Oh boy, this looks good! The Jag body shape is superbly balanced and always, without exception, looks awesome. You see these around in sunburst or red fairly often, but a creamy vintage white example like this is a special treat. The aged white finish pops perfectly against the dark streaky rosewood board and the red tort guard; it's a seriously attractive item. All that aside, this has the tone to match it's glorious looks: classic Jag jangle with a dollop of juicy bass, a chiming treble and a whole heap of punch and attack. The neck is a lovely piece of maple: tasty grain pattern, straight as an arrow, super comfy vintage C profile that's a dream in the hands. I may as well stop now, you already want it, right? Me too.
