More worryingly I sent Fender an email enquiring about any new special run JMarr Jags and they said not that they were aware of any in the pipeline and the current models were being discontinued! Surely not I’m hoping to get one soon 😩

I've come close to buying a sherwood green Fender Custom Shop Jaguar a couple of times, but the neck was too skinny on both occasions.
A used one? My Sherwood green FCS Jag was built to my specs.

I usually find the necks to be too large for my taste, I had a May 1965 Jaguar (CAR, green nitrate guard, unbound) and that had a very skinny neck, also a 1965 Telecaster again with a very slender neck.

Current models? Finishes? Or did they mean that the Marrguar will be discontinued in general?

Maybe a John Frusciante run of a couple of his jags? 😄
I would kill for this to happen
You'd think he would have gotten at least a Strat sig by now. Maybe he avoids that sort of thing.
I think his tech Dave Lee said once that Fender approached him once but he wasn't interested because he only plays guitars from the 60's

That was long time ago, though. Now he plays Yamaha SGs and went through a millionaire divorce

I've seen a couple used ones, and a couple new ones. All had slimmer neck profiles. I typically like necks to be around .9 at the 1st and around 1.0 at the 12th.

This is one of my fave necks on one of my CS Teles. It's 1.0 at the 1st, and 1.1 at the 12th.

Around the middle of last year Johnny replied to a Twitter comment saying that he's been speaking to Fender to see if it's possible do a production run of the comet sparkle.
I'd love to see one but kind of agree that it's not likely, especially as he now keeps referring to it as a one off special made for him!

I'd be gutted to see it discontinued as I've been trying to find one of the colour runs for a while!

Idk anything about whether fender has discontinuing the JM jag or not. But everyone should go check out Johnny’s instagram page. A) Because it’s great... B) He’s posted three new custom colours, Bronze, CAR, and his DMT Galaxy Sparkle thing :wacko:
Also, does anyone know how to rotate the volume and tone pots so I can have the max volume at around 9 olcock like johnny’s instead of 6 thanks.

I spotted these too, the dark sparkle he says was a refin by someone he links too, not sure about the others

Doubt they would release CAR seeing as the Metallic KO is meant to be modelled on an old faded CAR

The bronze / shoreline gold looking one might be fender experimenting with producing a factory run of comet sparkle?

Surely you could just pull the knob off, turn the pot all the way up, and put he knob back on at the desired position?

They’re held on with grub screws - just loosen that with an Allen key, adjust position, and tighten again.
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before....
