1965 Fender Jaguar Candy Apple Red Metallic


I'm always a Fender guitar buyer, but I'm especially looking for Fender Jaguar guitars like this 1965 Fender Jaguar in Candy Apple Red Metallic finish. You can contact me here to sell a vintage Fender guitar

Make and Model: Fender Jaguar

Year: 1965. Neck heel date stamp "1MAY65B" (1 = Jaguar model, MAY = May, 65 = 1965, B = 1 5/8" nut width). Serial "L97xxx". Volume potentiometer code "137 6518" indicating CTS manufacturer, 1965, 18th week. Check out How To Date A Vintage Fender Jaguar Guitar.

Originality: All parts original except the foam! I replaced the shrunken/hardened original foam underneath the pickups and on the bridge mute. I'm currently using a 1 degree full neck pocket shim but the original shims are still with the guitar.

Condition: Excellent. The original Candy Apple Red Metallic is in fantastic shape but shows some edge chipping on the headstock. There are two marks from a coily cable on the back of the body. 

Playability: Spectacular. I've set up so many Jaguars by this point that I think I could do it in my sleep. This one has a perfect working truss rod, straight neck, excellent original frets, good neck angle, proper bridge height with downward tension, and even a working bridge mute.
