1965 Candy Apple Red Fender Jaguar

Make: Fender
Model: Jaguar
Colour: Candy Apple Red
Year: 1965
Serial Number: L846XX
Case: Original White
Comments: All original and good condition except for a few small dings. Candy Apple Red paint has extreme laquer checking (only visible at certain angles) running adjacent to the string direction on the body and the head. The paint is also flaking of the head. Has the original fender mute and bridge cover stored in the case. Overall a very nice guitar, and extremly collectable.
