Vintage Fender Jaguar Guitars

Vintage Fender Jaguar Guitars

Vintage Fender Jaguar Guitars The Fender Jaguar was introduced in 1962 as the more student friendly addition of the offset line starting with the Jazzmaster. The Jaguar features a shorter scale neck at 24" and its own version of Fender's single coil pickups that make it distinctive among the sea of new guitars that came out in the 1960s. The electronics followed a similar setup to the Jazzmaster in that it had two different circuits on one guitar. The lower circuit had pickup on/off switches and a treble cut while the upper circuit had…Read more
The Fender Princeton Reverb Amp 1964-1967

The Fender Princeton Reverb Amp 1964-1967

Vintage 1973 Fender Telecaster

Vintage 1973 Fender Telecaster

Vintage Fender Telecasters These early 1970s Fender Telecaster are very popular on the vintage market right now. They're a great way to get in to a vintage, original factory Fender guitar without spending your whole retirement savings to get one. Fender was still building these standard Telecasters the old way with a just few changes. These guitars still have four bolt necks, truss rod adjustments at the heel and a standard heel date stamp just like the 1960s. Subtle Differences The main difference between these early 1970s Teles and a Tele made before 1969 is…Read more

1965 Fender Jaguar in Olympic White

And I don't!  Want to part with mine, that is.  I will certainly not take it surfing, although I don't have to worry about that here in Birmingham, AL.  My 1965 Fender Jaguar will not be cruising the waves anytime soon.The Jaguar was introduced in 1962 as Fender's new top-of-the line model.  It's shiny chrome plates, clawed single coils and abundance of switches were supposed to make it more desirable than the Telecaster, Stratocaster and Jazzmaster.  The public didn't quite see it that way and went on buying the strats and teles like it was…Read more
The Holy Grail of vintage guitar amplifiers: 1956 Fender Deluxe

The Holy Grail of vintage guitar amplifiers: 1956 Fender Deluxe

I used to have a couple of tweed fenders and one was the Deluxe.  It was a '59.  The speaker had been changed a couple of times.  The capacitors were recent and who knows where the output transformer came from.  The tweed was ripped and covered in candle wax from a couple of different recording sessions.  And it sounded, in a word, like a small piece of rock heaven.The amplifier pictured is clearly not my old tweed Deluxe.  This one led a completely different life than the one from the recording studio.  This…Read more

Field Trip: 1957 Fender Vibrolux

A friend of mine called me the other day and said that he had just traded his old drum set for this 1957 Fender Vibrolux:Needless to say, I was very excited.  Back in school I bought a small collection of vintage Fenders including a 1960 Champ, 1959 Princeton, 1960 Deluxe and a 1964 Vibro Champ.  Pete would come over and we would blues out with me on his Strat (and the Deluxe!) and him on the harmonica with the Champ.  TONE gentlemen, tone.Until one time I was holding the strat and he had…Read more
