Fender Jaguar in striking candy apple red, made in Japan in 1996. This guitar absolutely oozes mojo. It looks stunning from every angle, the finish has aged just enough to add some character, the aged chrome especially looks super cool. It's playing very well to boot: the action is low and comfortable, the neck is a nice slim profile, the weighting is spot on. It's got that perfect Jaguar-jangle, and the famous jag electronics give you a whole lot of options to play with. This guitar is exceptionally, exceedingly, obscenely cool!

Cosmetic condition notes: Some reasonable finish wear, a few chips and dings but nothing really significant. Plenty of play wear around the pickguard and surrounding area. The guard and pickups have yellowed significantly, and the chrome has aged quite significantly to an amazing smoky worn look, it's very cool. She's had plenty of hours of play, but very little abuse, it's got that really nice light relic look.
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good. Minor fret wear, but plenty of life left. Bridge and tremolo all working fine. All electrics tested and working properly. Recently been through a Topshelf setup with John Pearse 11/50 pure nickel strings. Really has the feel to back up the looks.
