Mick Jagger trashes a 65 Jag

Post by MatthewK » Sun Nov 08, 2009 3:25 pm

The other night I saw a video for the Rolling Stones' 1978 single Respectable. To my surprise Mick was hammering away at a Lake Placid 1965(?) D&B Jag - then half way through the clip he chucks it through a wall, and later throws it on the ground. Sensitive types may not wish to click on the YouTube link.

nah it's just a paper wall... :P

i think we've talked about this guitar. or i've read about it and/or seen pics... but i'm almost certain that it's in fact a serviceman jag.

...any experts here?

Nice catch Pat - I thought the binding looked a bit thick in the video.

I saw the same film clip over the wekend and I think it's a normal 1965/66 D&B jaguar.

I read that :
and in the 1980s, Mick Jagger used one on his American tour.
here is a photo from the particular film clip

Looks like we were both up late watching Rage, huh.
Don't you think the dots are awfully white, and the binding huge, for it to be a Fender?
(edit) And, my god, how skinny is the neck where it joins the body?

C'mon guys! I'm supposed to be the "rookie" here, but I know that there's a screw missing from the pickguard near the upper control plate, a tell-tale sign of a serviceman Jag. ;)

J i m m y wishes that it were a real Jag and ended its sorry existence in a toilet bowl. Now that would be awesome!
