Fender Jaguar Guitars
After the success of the Telecaster and the Stratocaster, it's no surprise that Fender would try to expand their line of guitars. The Jaguar, a 24-inch feature-laden guitar, joined the family in 1962. Based largely on the preceding Jazzmaster, the Jaguar was intended to be Fender's top-of-the-line model.
While it did find some initial success with surf music during the 1960s, the Jaguar ultimately ceased production after thirteen years before a resurgence of punk and alternative brought the then-vintage model back to the forefront.
In 1999, Fender officially reissued the Jaguar as part of its American Vintage series, and there have been a significant number of model variations since. Those lucky enough to own an original model have an instrument that is worth significantly more than its original purchase price.
Musicians continue to return to the Fender Jaguar for its unique sound. The Jaguar is ideal for guitarists with smaller hands, but its small size also lends itself to those looking for a faster playing style.
Sam Ash's collection of Jaguars includes signature models of music legends like Johnny Marr and Kurt Cobain, including a left-handed model for a true re-creation. We also have the Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar for the more vintage-inclined guitarists who are looking for that broken-in look without needing years of actual use.
For those on a smaller budget or just looking for a normal guitar, we’ve got the Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar, which modernizes the Jaguar without compromising the axe’s history.
