I am currently writing a blog post about the Marrguar at https://paulreno.de and was wondering if anyone was so kind to allow me to post his or her pictures? I could of course add your credentials. This would be so nice! :w00t:
And does anyone happen to have the booklet that comes with the case candy as pdf?

First time I've used this upload site but this download link appears to be working. This is a PDF version of the manual:

Here are some photos of mine - I'm not the original owner. I was compelled to add the tortoise pickguard by our band leader for proper surf cred.

Thank you very much! Do you want me to mention you for the picture in the credits?

I just published the article and am still looking for pictures of Black, KO, and LPB ones, if there is someone who would like to share them :)

I would be happy to hear your feedback and if you find any mistakes or know something I should add.

Has anyone put one of the Fender Pure Vintage 65 tort guards on their Marr? I was thinking of ordering one but have read a lot of reviews saying that the fit is bad or that they're warped.

This is a great picture James!

I did a video with my friend Paul comparing the Marr Jaguar with an American Vintage ’65 and my Crafted in Japan Jaguar:

I hope you like it and I would love to hear your thoughts!

I finally bought one, the only colour available was Olympic White It'll take a few days to ship. I'll forever be looking out for that elusive Sherwood Green JM Jag though. I can't wait to post photos. ;D

Seems like it would be a no brainer for Fender to do another run of the Sherwood Green Marrs.

The sherwood green are definitely attractive, never saw one in person myself.

My favorites are the Lake Placid Blue (which is why I snagged one!), the Olympic White, and the Black on Black.

Johnny seems to favor one that has a white or silver sparkle finish in the videos I've seen. Will be interesting to see what he's playing on tour this summer with The Killers

Perhaps a dumb question or one previously answered but is his sparkle Jaguar one of the production guitars or is it one he's had modified over the years and became the template for his signature guitar? I can't recall seeing his signature on the headstock although it's possible he omitted it on his own instrument.

It's a special one off fender did for Johnny. It's called comet sparkle and was done for his last album tours.
