Another 1965 sunburst Jaguar

Post by snopro78 » Mon Oct 28, 2019 3:25 am

I got myself a jaguar yesterday, neck is stamped mar 65
So it’s a L-series jag, it’s really clean with only a few dents and a second string tree has been mounted on the head stock. Everything electric seems untouched.
The only thing that bugs me is that It came in a brown tolex case which i understand is not typical for that Year?
I’ve seen a few other 65’s with brown cases on reverb so
could it be the original case? No big thing but kind of interesting

Thank You! Its just under 4 kg (swedish measurement) I guess that makes it´s quite heavy, but it feels super nice,
It used to belong to a collector, so I guess it hadn't been set up for playing for a while, I did some adjustments and now it plays like butter :)

I have a 1962 Jaguar, but a 1965 black/orange case. Sound like you're in Sweden, otherwise I would say that we should swap.
great OSG deals with: ncarey13, skip.
great TGP deals with: drjoel, 12strings, Tim P, angrybandnerd, echobaseone, guitarpkr67, jcampbell331

Yeah, that would have been awsome, too bad theres an ocean between the cases

Blurry photobucket photos so very hard to see. Try imgur instead.

Jaguars are verly rarely below 3.5 kg's. The best Jaguar that I have ever played was also a heavy one with around or just below 4kg
