Up for sale, a NAMM 2012 Fender 50th Anniversary Jaguar in near-mint and 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, hangtags, and case

limited run USA-made model that paralleled the American Vintage line of instruments, this particular 50th Anniversary Jaguar was one of the 50 pieces produced.

The model has medium jumbo fretwire on a 9 1/2" radius rosewood fretboard, cream fretboard binding and block inlay, a repositioned vibrato unit for increased break angle, and a pair of "hot" Jaguar pickups.

The alder body is finished in a thin nitro lacquer

"flash coat" of Fender's custom color, Burgundy Mist, and alder offers a lively, clear acoustic voice

The pickups have a bit more meat and warmth than a traditional Jag, given the slightly hotter wind which delivers more midrange character and slightly increased output.

The maple neck has a medium C-shaped profile carve with full shoulders and ideal substance, measuring .815" deep at the 1st fret and .905" at the 12th.

The bound rosewood fretboard is a dark cut of this tonewood, featuring pearloid block inlay (echoing specs introduced on the Jaguar in 1966), with a modern 9 1/2" radius and original medium jumbo fretwire that has plenty of meat and shows virtually no wear.

The neck pocket on the 50th Anniversary model is also angled one degree further back, eschewing the extra shims often needed on Jaguars for better connection between the neck and body.

The electronics all function perfectly , and the chrome plating on the hardware is positively gleaming, including the original bridge cover and 50th Anniversary-embossed neck plate.

Fender/G&G Deluxe hardshell case is included
