Near MINT with no issues, this 1967 Transisional era black marker Jag is a real beauty...
A very nice, pretty much near MINT 1967 Fender Jaguar in a lovely unfaded three tone sunburst……
Billed as ‘faster and easier to play’ due to its shorter scale length and equipped with some of the most advanced switching options of any Fender to date, the Jaguar has always been a little bit at odds with its other stable mates but has always found favour in the underground. Even so, there is no denying the iconic look of the instrument, especially in this vibrant sunburst finish.
This guitar has certainly led an easy life, and there is very little in the way of wear on the body, the neck and even on the frets.
The bound neck has a wonderful glossy lacquer finish which looks almost untouched, there aren’t any signs here of damage as is the case with the fretboard. The frets too show very little signs of use, and the headstock has kept that smooth finish.
The hardware is free of too much corrosion and still gleams almost like it was just a few years old. Electronically the guitar is correct and all the solder joints (and yes, there are many!) look to be undisturbed which is always a welcome sight to behold.
The is guitar sounds fantastic. Unplugged there’s a vibrancy that isn’t always evident in these offset guitars. Once plugged in, the guitar has a wide pallette of tones available and both pickups work well so as to make any option a good one, again a statement that can’t be made about all Jaguars unfortunately.
One of the nicest early block marker Jags we have had here in recent times, even the case is near mint and we think it is a relative bargain in today’s vintage guitar market.
This guitar is certainly special. Looks to die for with tone to match. They don’t often get here in this condition so its a must for anyone looking for a really nice transition era Jag for their collection…
