NGD: Blonde player grade 1965 Jaguar

Post by alvinstraight » Sun Aug 09, 2020 1:44 am

Supposedly really old refin. L-plate. Neck date Aug 65. Light at slightly below 8 lbs. Original pickups and pots but changed wiring. Mustang bridge. Guitar has lived a life, including duct tape strap locks... Refin is strange in that the front and sides have gone nicotine yellow, but the back is still white. Bridge pickup pretty microphonic, but guitar still sounds and plays lovely.

very nice. It has the right wear, even if it is a refinish! :-*

Few more pics of this one. Sounds really amazing through an old Roland Jazz Chorus that I just got.

Ah, meganice Jaguar!!! Congrats!
Love the color and colorfading.
It´s a players guitar. In my opinion, the more wear the better the guitar, because it´s played a lot, because it sounds good.

I also have a 1965 Jag. The pickups on mine have staggered pole pieces.
I would love to hear yours through my 1961 Showman.
