The Past and the Future Collide
The Classic Player Jaguar Special takes everything that made the Jaguar such a revolutionary instrument in the 1960s and adds some modern player-requested touches. The alder body is loaded with new pickups that provide fatter tone and a hotter output. Another interesting enhanced feature is that the neck pocket is cut differently for better pitch. The trem plate has also been moved to increase the break angle and improve sustain. The Classic Player Jaguar Special also sports an Adjusto-matic bridge for great intonation. The Classic Player Jaguar Special merges the best of the past and the present.
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 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.
Classic Player Jaguar features
There are a variety of new features on the Classic Player Jaguar Special that set it apart from its vintage-styled siblings. New pickups provide fatter tone and more output, and an Adjusto-matic bridge keeps intonation in check. Medium-jumbo frets make bends easier, and a new neck pocket cut provides better pitch and a comfy feel. Another cool modification from the original, the trem plate has migrated closer to bridge to increase break angle and sustain and a screw-in tremolo arm is also a stark improvement over the original. Black plastic knobs and switches round out the features.
