Fender Jaguar 50th Anniversary electric guitar is to be released at NAMM 2012. Combining the old with the new Fender have put together it's finest Jaguar electric guitar to date, celebrating it's 50th anniversary. Since it's launch in 1962 the Jaguar electric guitar quickly became popular within the 60's surf music scene and more recently in the 80's and 90's alternative and indie rock scenes. This anniversary model features the classic 24" scale, a new one degree neck angle pocket cut that improves pitch and a re-position tremolo plate that increases bridge break angle and sustain. It also features a specially designed hot Jaguar single-coil neck and bridge pickup that delivers a fatter tone, framed by the model's classic notched metal "claws", a hum reducing innovation only found on Jaguar electric guitars. Accessories include a deluxe brown case, strap, cable and a set of flatwound strings that compliment the look and feel of the guitar. This 50th anniversary model is available in classic vintage Fender finishes including Lake Placid Blue, Candy Apple Red and striking Burgandy Mist Metallic, which authentically evokes the original Burgundy mist finish option.
