Born in 1965, and loaded with vintage vibe, this Fender Jaguar in Dakota Red is all original and has been preserved in excellent vintage condition.  Through the combination of its innovative floating tremolo system, its short scale 24” neck, two original Jaguar single-coil pickups, and its iconic Jaguar circuitry, this guitar is equipped with all of the timeless offset solid body tones that shook the world. Its distinctive Rhythm and Lead circuits produce the signature “Jangle” that these guitars are known for. Outfitted in the rarest of Fender Jaguar finishes, Dakota Red with a matching headstock, this guitar is a sight to behold. This Fender 1965 Jaguar shows honest signs of its age through the checking of its finish, and it is otherwise in impeccable condition for its age.
