Get Your Hands on Johnny's Favorite Jag!

From the Smiths to The The to the Pretenders to Modest Mouse and the Cribs, Johnny Marr is a guitar force to be reckoned with. Fender and Johnny Marr collaborated to create the Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar. This signature model guitar is one that Johnny is recognized with and one that brings his ringing, jangly sound to life. The alder-bodied Jaguar sports a 24" scale length with a vintage 7.25" fingerboard radius. Custom pickups give you tons of punch from this single-coil beast. Custom switching and modified hardware give this Jaguar increased playability and stability over its vintage counterparts. The Johnny Marr Jaguar is ready to pounce!

  • Short Scale Neck
Custom Hardware

The Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar is as unique as its namesake. Start off with two custom Bare Knuckles Johnny Marr bridge and neck pickups for crisp, clear single-coil tone. The custom neck shape is based on Johnny's original 1965 Jaguar. An updated bridge gives you better stability and more accurate tuning. Custom switching offers unique configurations that will make your playing stand out from the band. A 4-position switch provides you with bridge, bridge and neck in parallel, neck, and bridge and neck in series pickup configurations. Really tweak your tone with a universal bright switch and a second bright switch for position four on the pickup selector.The Johnny Marr Jaguar is available in two colors: Olympic White and Metallic KO (based off the color of Johnny's faded Candy Apple Red Jag).

Unique Fender design and style

Fender guitars of the late '50s and early '60s borrowed a lot from the automobile designs of the times, which meant lots of chrome and lines that were anything but "traditional." The Jaguar used the same offset-waist body shape as the Jazzmaster (first introduced in about 1958) and added 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

You'll love the shorter (and somewhat mellower) 24-inch scale of the Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar, as opposed to the standard 25-1/2-inch scale made popular by the Stratocaster. The rosewood fingerboard features large pearloid block inlays and is very comfortable to play and vintage-style 7.25" radius. The neck also features the vintage-style truss rod that is accessed at the base of the neck.

Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar Electric Guitar Features:

Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar

This guitar is now my favorite guitar. After mostly playing my American Standard Stratocaster it took a while to get used to the larger neck, but it's amazing. There are so many different sounds to be had on this. The pickups from Bare Knuckle are incredible. The improved Mustang bridge: solid. I highly recommend this guitar if you're interested in a unique, beautiful, and well-crafted offset.

Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar

I received my Jag in perfect condition, packaged so it would not likely get damaged. I love the way it plays. I particularly like that it is an American made product. I can't say enough good things about my sales rep. Nick Church, has always taken very good care of me, even though I am not what you would call a "Big Spender." He sent a complete set of pictures of my guitar, before it actually shipped. Although Sweetwater's tech did the 55 point check, I did a little adjusting on the height of the pickups, but that is to be expected for a person to setup an instrument to their own preferences.I have never had a complaint about any of the products or service I receive from Sweetwater, and they will continue to be my GoTo supplier for my music equipment.

Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar

This is the 33rd guitar in my collection - many brands...lots of Fenders, Gibsons, PRS, Ibanez, Danelectro etc. This one is everything it's been represented to be. Lot's of tones available, great design, super sounds. Very clear and precise when clean - lots of growl and presence when overdriven. It's my first Jaguar and what a monster! I love it! Seems guitars are just getting better and better as time progresses.
