Fender Japan JG66-85 Jaguar CAR

£669.00 

ON HOLD

Another great reissue from Fender Japan. This guitar was imported from Japan by me. Jaguars tend to be quite difficult to find in this finish, the more common being in Sunburst. The colour is Candy Apple red which is a metallic finish, this guitar also has a colour matched headstock which really sets it apart from other Jaguars. Nice!

This guitar was made in Japan 1997-2000 and has been used although the frets, trussrod & neck are all excellent. There are a couple of blemishes on the body which are shown in the photos. The last photos in the gallery show these "post repair" The guitar has come up really nicely and looks and plays really well

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. Jaguars have a wider body than Strats and Teles and this is a tight fit in the hard case but it does offer it good protection in transit although not ideal in size. If you want a particular fitted case for the guitar, this will be more expensive although I am happy to research it. Just let me know. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag
