Anniversaries are a time to commemorate the past, but as the Fender 60th-anniversary Ultra Luxe Jaguar proves: they also represent an appropriate opportunity to look toward the future. Instead of a traditional 24-inch scale length, Fender has opted for their more typical 25-inch radius for a snappy long-sustaining tone. A pair of Fender Custom Double Tap humbuckers delivers a full range of high-powered punch — a contemporary sound that Music Experience guitarists find lends itself more towards hard-rock tones than the traditional Jag’s surfy vibe. Finally, this guitar comes with a highly modernized neck — the augmented “D” neck profile, the tapered neck heel, the ebony fingerboard, and medium-jumbo frets in a compound 10-inch to 14-inch radius all add up to a thoroughly reimagined Jaguar that’s built to take on the next 60 years of musical history!
The headline says it all. This Jaguar is made to be played. Hard. The ultra- satin neck has Fender's augmented "D" profile that facilitates fast playing without feeling like you're playing a baseball bat. It has a compound-radius fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo stainless steel frets that make it just as easy to play chords near the nut as it is to melt faces at the higher frets. The fretboard also has rolled edges to give you hours of playing comfort. Soloing is easy, too, thanks to the tapered neck heel. To put it simply, the 60th-anniversary Ultra Luxe Jaguar has a neck with upgraded features that the demanding player cannot pass up.
A pair of Fender Custom Double Tap Humbuckers power this Jaguar for a full-range modern sound, while still retaining Fender’s legendary articulation. These pickups are specially designed by Tim Shaw to lose no volume when switching between single-coil and humbucker modes. The Double Tap in the bridge position pumps out plenty of high-octane tones that can go from hard rock to pristine Fender spanky cleans in an instant. In the neck position, you get a wonderfully dynamic sound that offers stunning sonic textures with a full bottom end.
Compared to a traditional Jaguar, the 60th-anniversary Ultra Luxe Jaguar has no tremolo. Instead, it's outfitted with a high-performance string-through Adjusto-Matic bridge. The Jaguar’s floating bridge and trem mark a classic design that’s beloved by vintage-minded enthusiasts; however, for players who don’t need a tremolo, this no-nonsense design boasts far greater sustain and tuning stability. The string-through body provides a greater break angle over the bridge compared to a traditional Jaguar, which also aids this guitar’s sustain and resonance while providing a snappier tone.

This Jaguar features the Ultra Luxe Augmented “D” neck with a 25.5” scale for modern playability.

A speedy 10”-14” compound-radius fingerboard with 22 stainless steel medium-jumbo frets means effortless and accurate soloing, while the Custom Double Tap™ humbucking pickups and advanced wiring options provide endless tonal possibilities. Sculpted rear body contours are as beautiful as they are functional, increasing accessibility and comfort. Other features include sealed locking tuning machines, chrome hardware and a TUSQ™ nut. This state-of-the-art, limited-edition instrument will inspire you to push your playing to new heights. Includes premium molded hardshell case.
Two Custom Double Tap™ pickups offer full, rich humbucking tones – and can be split using the independent slider switches to activate the Double Tap ™ technology, providing hot single-coil sounds for dynamic and versatile Fender tone.
Stainless steel frets are significantly harder and smoother than traditional nickel-silver, giving them extreme durability and a glassy playing feel that makes bending easy.
The longer than normal scale length sets this Jaguar apart and ensures tight, punchy, and articulate tones.
The unique pairing of an Adjusto-Matic bridge with string through body ferrules provides maximum sustain, enhanced resonance, and ultra-stable tuning.
The Augmented “D” neck profile is a refined hybrid shape with slightly more body than the Modern “D”. The profile becomes subtly fuller towards the twelfth fret, with shoulders that soften in the higher register. Ultra rolled fingerboard edges and a silky, smooth Ultra satin finish make the neck effortless to play.
The 10”-14” compound-radius ebony fingerboard is rounded near the nut for chording, becoming increasingly flat as it nears the upper register for choke-free bending. Ebony is renowned for its luxurious playing feel and elegant appearance.
