The Fender Jaguar is an iconic offset electric guitar, known for its manageable 24" scale length and floating tremolo tailpiece. The Fender Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified HH keeps many classic appointments intact, however it mixes its traditional touches with a number of contemporary features - to suit modern players that adore old-school looks, yet crave powerful tones and superb playability.
Fitted with updated electronics and equipped with a pair of potent Fender Atomic humbuckers, the Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified also boasts a modern neck profile and a relatively flat 9.5" fingerboard radius.
Timeless Fender Construction
Fender has relied on its favoured tonewood combinations for the Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified HH. Comprised of an Alder body, this balanced-sounding material ensures robust lows, lively mids and crisp highs.
The Alder body is joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, bringing out even more top-end snap. Giving notes plenty of immediacy, this guitar offers a very responsive feel. The Pau Ferro fingerboard is another thoughtful design feature, adding some crucial lower mid-range warmth and providing a silky-smooth touch under the fingers.
The Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified's neck is shaped to Fender's popular modern "C" profile. Although this neck carve is slim and comfortable for contemporary players, it still offers enough girth to satisfy vintage aficionados. Another 21st Century feature includes medium jumbo frets, which allow for greater control over string bending and vibrato techniques.
Powerful Humbucker Tones
The Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified's most noteworthy features are its Fender Atomic humbuckers. Featuring Alnico V magnets, these high-output pickups sound similar to a classic rock humbucker from a well-known aftermarket brand, yet are regarded for sounding slightly more even. Perfect for pushing an amp into sweet-sounding overdrive, these pickups remain clear and articulate with clean settings; as you'd expect from a Fender guitar.
This alternative all-star is therefore ideal for lots of styles, but especially with its multitude of tone-changing switches! Two sliders on the lower bout activate/deactivate each pickup, while the third slider activates a 'tone cut'. On the upper horn there are wheels that let you select between single-coil and humbucking modes, giving you even more tonal variety.
While the electronics will appeal to modern musicians that want plenty of sounds at their disposal, the Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified HH's hardware is far more traditional. Fitted with a classic 'Adjusto-Matic' bridge and a floating tremolo tailpiece, you can warble to your heart's content.
The vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, while their bulletproof design ensures rock-solid performance and exceptional tuning stability. For keeping the Vintera '60s Jaguar Modified safe on the road, the included Fender Deluxe Gig Bag's rugged design will provide great protection.
