The Jaguar… Introduced in mid 1962, this guitar was at the time considered the top of the line high-end instrument. Actually, it was considered Fender’s top-of-the-line model until 1967 when Hendrix changed everything, with his usage of the Stratocaster. Because of the shorter scale length, Jaguar values today are lower compared to other full scale models. The Jaguar’s pickups are more powerful and better shielded, which eliminated some of the hum problems associated with the Jazzmaster. The shorter (24 inch) scale was favored by some guitarists at that time, especially the surf music players. The Jaguar shared its unique rhythm circuit with the Jazzmaster. This allowed a pre-set tone for rhythm playing.
