Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar, sunburst USED
part number: 030-2000-500
Made in 2014 in Indonesia
Features “Duncan Designed” pickups !!!!
NOTE – looks like it has had a replaced bridge as this one seems slightly different. Seems to work as it should though, just FYI.
In generally excellent condition with virtually no noticeable scratches.
Good playability – just had a full set up and re-string with new Fender 10-46 strings.
The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar takes its design inspiration from the Fender Jaguar of the 1960s. The original Fender Jaguar had a unique identity that made it extremely popular with alternative and indie musicians. The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar has the same look and sound of the original ’60s Fender design, including the distinct offset body, versatile electronics and short 24” scale length. The Squier Jaguar gains the ‘Modified’ moniker due to its modified playability; this gives the guitar an up-to-date feel, allowing it to keep up with contemporary instruments.
Versatile Tonewoods & Classic Looks
A basswood body is chosen for its versatile performance, with a balanced frequency response and light weight for a comfortable feel during long playing sessions. The body is crafted with the classic Jaguar offset body shape, giving an effortlessly-cool look and easy access to the top-frets. The neck is finished with a vintage-tint gloss finish, so you’ll have the authentic look of a vintage guitar.
The Jaguar is defined by its shorter (24”) scale length, which gives the strings a “slinkier” feel and makes the fret spacing narrower for an easier playing feel. This makes chordal and solo work easier and is ideal for those with smaller hands or for musicians who prefer an easier action for string bends. The neck has a “C” shaped profile that enables easy reach over all 6-strings, while the offset body enables easy access to all 22 frets. The Jaguar is loaded with two Duncan Designed JB-101 single coil pickups to provide the nuance and bite that this guitar design is known for. The pickups are wired up to a versatile set of electronics which gives access to separate lead and rhythm circuits.
The Fender Jaguar
The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar takes its inspiration from the original ’60s Fender Jaguar design. The original Jaguar could never match the popularity of the ubiquitous Stratocaster and Telecaster models of the time, so Fender discontinued the Jaguar in 1975. During the next few decades the Jaguar garnered a cult popularity with alternative rockers and indie musicians due to its availability on the second-hand market and its unique appearance.
