Fender Japan JG66-85 Jaguar 3TS
1999/2002 & New Hard Case



A good example of the ever popular Fender Jaguar. The shorter (24") scale length make these a popular guitar with indie players 

This guitar was made in Japan 1999/2002 and has been used but is still in very good condition. The frets, trussrod & neck are all excellent. There was a ding on the bottom edge and a few other marks around the body when it came in these have been improved and have been photographed pre & post repair and are shown in the gallery. There are a few minor scratches around the body too. The neck is good and the guitar is a great player. The shorter scale & offset body make these guitars very popular with "Surf" & "Indie" players alike. They were introduced by Fender in 1962 and was the most expensive Fender at that time. It was hoped it would compete against Gibson but it never really sold as well as the Strat or the Tele (both cheaper!)

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
