Pre-owned 1966 Fender Jaguar in Lake Placid Blue.
One family has owned this since it was purchased brand new in 1966. A stunning piece of Fender history in a rare Lake Placid Blue which has faded into a beautiful green hue. This famously happened to these colors due to the tints in the clear coat. You can see some of the original blue under the pickguard and in the worn areas. Everything is original, except a very old hardshell case. The case and trem bar are included. The mute is mostly functional but slowly deteriorating from age.
Pickups have strong output (pictured). See pictures for detailed images of the wear and beautiful aging inside and out!
Traditionally, the Jaguar has two circuits—lead and rhythm.
The lead circuit allows for the activation of both pickups with three slide switches on a chrome plate on the lower bout, while the rhythm circuit only deals with the neck/rhythm pickup through controls on the upper bout’s chrome plate. It should be noted, that when in the rhythm setting, the bridge pickup is deactivated and the lower-bout volume and tone controls go inactive.
