The guitar plays surprisingly well, and performs just as good as any guitar that we have already professionally setup. The action is remarkably comfortable, and string-bending is an ease. The neck is quite large, and the soft open-C profile is a pleasure to play. The guitar sounds great, and all of the switches work perfectly. The guitar is medium weight, and weighs exactly 8 lbs.
As mentioned, the Jaguar was Fender’s top-of -the-line guitar. It features a very advanced electronic arrangement which was intended to make it the most dynamic guitar offered. A custom color Jaguar was the most expensive Fender instrument during this time, and while it might not have been the best investment at the time, it has become the best vintage guitar bargain around.
