1962 Sunburst Fender Jaguar

Make: Fender
Model: Jaguar
Colour: Sunburst
Year: 1962
Serial Number: 791XX
Case: Original Tan
Comments: First year of Jaguar Production. All original and good condition except for a few small dings / chips and the normal buckle scratch on the back (Evidence that a guitar is great and has been played). Shorter neck length suits my hands great and makes this an absolute dream to play. This was the first Pre-CBS Fender guitar that I had acquired, which definitely got me going on this crazy fender offset body thing. Surfs Up!
