The Fender Player Series Jaguar delivers the classic look and feel of Fender's beloved offset guitars, with an HS pickup configuration that modern players will be impressed with. The alder body features the same radius as vintage originals, and the redesigned pickups offer distinctive tones that sound great whether you're playing clean or distorted. And the Player Series Jaguar features a simplified control layout — instead of toggle switches, you get a 3-way pickup selector, plus a coil-split switch to turn the humbucker into a single-coil. All this at a price for working musicians makes the Fender Player Series Jaguar a value-packed guitar you shouldn't miss.
Fender went back to the drawing board with updated radii for more historically accurate body shapes, new vintage-inspired finishes, and a classic logo that harkens back to the Fenders of yesteryear. But these smooth-playing instruments also look to the future with modern enhancements that include 22-fret necks, upgraded bridges for better sustain, and refined pickups that crank out legendary Fender tone by the boatload.
The Player Series Jaguar forgoes the individual toggle switches found on traditional Jags, simplifying the control scheme and also eliminating the need for aggressive players to wedge something in there to prevent accidental switching. Players at Music Experience are fairly sure you won't miss them, though — between the vibrant and articulate pickup combination and your trusty volume and tone knobs, you'll discover tones appropriate for practically any musical style.
Finished with satin urethane and loaded with 22 medium-jumbo frets, the maple neck on the Player Series Jaguar doesn't disappoint. Expect a comfortable feel that doesn't feel thin but won't impede your progress if you find yourself in higher positions. And if you're the type of guitarist who regularly tweaks your setup, or you live in extreme conditions, then you'll be pleased to know the truss rod adjustment point is at the headstock (instead of in the neck heel like the vintage originals).
Sleek and stylish and with a voice that’s a modern twist on our classic sound, the Player Jaguar has a uniquely slinky playing feel. It encourages you to play differently, to reach for new chords and melodic twists and to explore new sounds and tonalities. Decked out with spotlight-ready chrome accents, it has the authentic sound, features and feel that’s inspired countless artists to write new songs and create new genres of music.
