With its more powerful shielded pickups, elegant style and short-scale feel, the Jaguar model turned more than a few heads when it was released in 1962. The 1963 Journeyman Relic Jaguar recreates this classic instrument, adding a battle-worn finish that lets the wood breathe with pure Fender tone.
The pair of high-output Custom Shop vintage-style Jaguar pickups easily push an amp into glorious overdrive, and include the classic shielding claw to reduce EMI- and RFI-induced hum. The two-piece alder body is hand-selected for its light weight and strong grain, as is the tinted rift-sawn maple neck with a vintage-accurate Jaguar “C”-shaped profile.
Other sterling features include a 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard, 22 6105 frets, vintage wiring and controls, three-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style bridge, tailpiece and tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
