Fender Jaguar 1964 – cool sounding and all original Pre-CBS Jaguar with original hard case.
The Fender Jaguar was introduced in 1962 as Fender’s new top-of-the-line instrument and was an alternative to the Jazzmaster. Both guitars had a modern body shape with floating tremolo. The Jaguar differed in its use of a shorter 24-inch scale length and stronger single-coil pickups, which were encased in notched covers to shield the electronics from external radio noise.
The serial number on the neck plate starts with an ‘L’, meaning this is a 1964 model. These guitars, built between 1963 and 1965, are sometimes referred to as “L-Series” because they are considered to be the last series of guitars made before CBS’s 1965 acquisition.
The neck stamp on the guitars reads “1OCT64B.”
What is also striking about this Jaguar is the excellent condition it is in! It is all original and comes with the original case! It also still looks clean with, of course, the weather checking, chips and playwear that belong on a vintage instrument.
