(SOLD) Fender Japan Jaguar JG66-85 Vintage White 2004
Fender Jaguar, vintage white, crafted in Japan 2004-5. This is surely a gorgeous creature. Fender Japan Jags come around fairly often in sunburst or candy apple red, but this creamy white delight is seen far less often. The white paired with the dark tort guard, streaky red rosewood board and natural golden maple headstock make for quite the party for the eyes. The short scale, slim neck, lightweight body and quirky offset trem make for an easy and fun player; it's very easy in the hands. The typical Jag-jangle is on tap; there's heaps of attack and punch balanced by a chiming, slice-through treble. Tip trick: this won't last long!
