With great Classic Player sound and style, these include hotter pickups, a tone cut switch, an Adjusto-Matic bridge, a neck pocket with increased back-angle for improved stability and sustain, and more.

Not too short, not too tall. Not too wide, not too narrow. On a guitar fingerboard, medium jumbo frets are the "Goldilocks" size - just right for any sound and playing style. The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument's modern 9.5" fingerboard radius is slightly more flattened than a vintage-style radius, but still with enough arc to provide a natural and notably comfortable fretting-hand feel, and to make bending notes easier. For notable string placement and tuning stability, this instrument features an Adjusto-Matic bridge, along with a vintage-style "floating" tremolo tailpiece and tremolo lock button for an added touch of original-era authenticity. For hotter sound with more output than traditional Jaguar bite, this amped-up Classic Player model features two powerfully voiced Special Design Hot single-coil Jaguar pickups.

For optimal bridge and tremolo performance, this Classic Player model actually improves on the original models with a slightly more pronounced neck angle produced by a new neck pocket cut. Along with a more pronounced neck angle, bridge and tremolo performance on this instrument are improved by moving the tremolo plate slightly closer to the bridge. This increases the string-break angle for more stable string placement, and reduces the string length behind the bridge to lessen or eliminate unwanted sympathetic vibrations.

  • Neck pocket optimized for better neck pitch
  • 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets
  • Dual special design "hot" single-coil Jaguar pickups
  • On/off slider switch for each pickup
  • Two-position tone cut switch
  • Classic Jaguar "lead"/"rhythm" dual-circuit design with volume and tone control for each
  • Adjusto-Matic bridge with vintage-style “floating” tremolo tailpiece and tremolo lock button
  • Deluxe gig bag included

Absolutely a great buy


This is a great universal guitar...I use the Rythum switch and play BASS through a twin 12in cabinet...The Lead Switch is Excellant...I owned a 1965 3 color sunburst and this is better handling,better sounding, and over all a GREAT value...Invest in a Reissue 1965 Twin Rvberb or Frontman 212 (transistored twin reverb) or Super Reverb..and you have it all!

Great Guitar


Bought this is September'10. Unlike some other reviews, mine was set up perfect, flawless finish. This does stay in tune if you lock the trem. otherwise, it does need occasional adjusting. Great action. All in all, this is a great guitar. Is is as good as the '62? No, but for the price, you won't find any better.

Love this


I bought this at the Charlotte NC store. I love this guitar. It sounds different then all my other Fenders. The bridge is improved and the pickups are hotter the the old Jags.I think it plays and sounds better then my old 64 Jag I bought at Mannys in NY in 1965. Finish and quality are excellent and the neck and action are fantastic.


Charlotte NC


better than the real deal


This is a great guitar. Action and quality are fantastic and as good as anything I have had.I have been playing for 53 years. Bought it in the Charlotte, NC store. Had a 65 Jag and this is better than the original. Bridge is improved, Pickups are great and it plays like a Fender.Mexico is making great guitars. Get one.




Buy the REAL THING instead!


You would have figured that by now, we all would know better than to buy a mexican Fender. I guess not. To the point: Milling/sanding marks visible under/through the finish, sharp fret ends that raise up, non-American tremolo throws you out of tune every time, string tree screw was not drilled deep enough (so the string tree would rattle. I had to counter bore it properly ). This Jag is NOT, a good substitute for an American Jag. My advice, save your pennies and buy the American Jag.
