A Road Worn Jaguar with Massive Vintage Vibe!

Add a vintage-vibed beauty to your arsenal with the Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar solidbody electric guitar. The aged nitrocellulose finish gives this Jag the look of a well-loved and cherished gigging guitar. A pair of American Vintage '65 Jaguar single-coil pickups deliver spot-on vintage tone. Vintage-style tuners, tremolo, bridge, and switching complete the old-school vibe of this short-scale wonder. The Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar gives you the looks, tone, and feel of a sought-after vintage guitar.

Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The look and feel of a well-loved instrument
  • Short-scale neck is smooth-playing and comfortable
  • Vintage-style pickups provide classic tone
The look and feel of a well-loved instrument

Now you can get the looks and feel of a well-used '60s-spec Jaguar in a brand-new guitar! The Road Worn '60s Jaguar backs up its authentic looks with great playing feel and the kind of tonality you'd expect from a pick-of-the-litter vintage instrument. The Jaguar uses the same offset-waist body shape as the Jazzmaster (first introduced in about 1958) and adds even more chrome across the face of the instrument, including a plethora of switch and control plates, as well as a separate bridge and floating vibrato system.

Short-scale neck is smooth-playing and comfortable

You'll love the shorter (and somewhat mellower) 24" scale of the Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar, as opposed to the standard 25.5" scale made popular by the Stratocaster. The rosewood fingerboard features 22 vintage-style frets and a 7.25" radius. Fender loaded this Jaguar with a vintage-style tremolo that lets you dip and dive your notes to perfection. And thanks to Sweetwater's 55-point Guitar Evaluation, you know your Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar will be ready to rock right out of the box.

Vintage-style pickups provide classic tone

Fender wouldn't rest until the Road Worn '60s Jaguar sounded as vintage as it looked, so they loaded it with the same pickups designed and used in the American Vintage Series Jaguar. This Jag packs a duo of American Vintage '65 Jaguar single-coil pickups that are specifically wound to period-correct specs to deliver vintage tone. You get the same tonal versatility that made the Jaguar the legend it is today.

Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • 1960s-era Jaguar reproduction with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • Short-scale 24" neck length is comfortable to play
  • 2 specially voiced American Vintage '65 Jaguar single-coil pickups are wound to match the sound and specs of original '60s pickups
  • Road Worn finish for a worn-in look
  • Vintage-style tremolo and switching gives you old-school vibe
  • Deluxe gig bag included
The Fender Road Worn '60s Jaguar looks and feels like a well-loved vintage instrument!

Nice feeling and sounds great!

At first glance, the Road Worn Jaguar just looks kind of old and faded with a few dings, lots of swirling on the back, the neck aging is more subtle than the photographs, and the screws and bolts are pitted and rusty. However, it all looks natural. Very well done job on that. The action is medium and even the strings felt kind of old. The pickguard and pickup covers have some minor bubbling consistent with an old guitar left in the car too long. The frets have zero wear marks but do have an aged appearance. The pickups sound really good and you get a noise free sound with both pickups on. The rhythm circuit is substantially louder at full vol/tone than the lead circuit. The bridge and tremolo were set up perfectly and I'm not hearing any buzzing yet or any strings jumping out of the saddles. There is no real fretboard wear, just rolled edges and a somewhat faded wood tone. All in all, this is a great sounding Jaguar among Jaguars and the Road Worn look is tastefully done. I won't have to upgrade anything on this at all as it all works and sounds great!

Great but has some kinks

Where to begin.... I wish I could give this 5 stars but it has some issues, which the jag is known for anyway. Pros: tone is 2nd to none for me. So beautiful and versatile. I'd give it 6 stars there if I could. I love the unique electronic circuit. The smaller radius on the neck makes it effortless to play. The tremolo/vibrato/whammy bar (whatever you like to call it lol) is ultra smooth. My favorite of any guitar I've ever played. Cons: the bridge sucks. I'd consider myself a "fender fanboy," I LOVE fender products but if there was ever a mistake this company made it was the design of this bridge. The other con is feedback. It's not the awesome Hendrix feedback at the beginning of Foxy Lady either. Even on what I consider a medium gain/overdrive setting this guitar squeals like a cat that had its tail stepped on. It's a high pitch, ear splitting squeal that is not musical. You'll find yourself reading forums on how to get rid of it and I've yet to find one that is satisfying. Some people suggest taking the claws off, which is fine but the pickups are grounded to the claws, so you'll need to know how to solder and wire a git properly for that. Plus, a jag without claws? :( To each their own I guess. But I like the look of the claws. Then there's wax potting. I've heard that helps but doesn't always work. All in all, if you pick one of these up be prepared to invest some extra $$$$ in upgrades to get this guitar where you want it. If you can work out the kinks the jag is the best guitar out there, at least for me.
