Second hand: The guitar is in excellent condition - nearly mint. There is just some light play wear on the scratchplate.
Comes with hard case and trem arm
"More and more players recently, have been turning to the Fender alternatives for their weapon of choice on stage and in the studio, so it's no surprise that Fender have added the Jaguar and Jazzmaster to their new flagship range. The Fender American Pro Jag, like the rest of the series has brand new V-Mod pickups, incredibly well balanced thanks to the proprietry bled of alnico magnets. These pickups are on no other model seen before. In line with the rest of the American Pro series, Fender have updated the Jag with a deep C neck profile, narrow tall frets, Elite hardcase, treble bleed circuit and... wait for it... a bridge that keeps the strings in place!! Wahoooo!
Fender describe this new model as a 'hot-rodded' Jaguar - high output, whilst retaining the characteristic, vintage sonic qualities that make the guitar what it is. If you want a reliable, quality guitar with an amazing 60s, 70s retro vibe to it, the Fender American Pro Jaguar and indeed, Jazzmaster are certainly ones to check out.
The new Fender American Pro Jazzmaster has recieved a similar treatment in that it's got all the flagship upgrades, and new pickups designed by the man behind Eric Johnson signature Strat pickups - Michael Frank. So much work has gone into these V-Mod pickups and it's clear when you hear them - very defined, nice and punchy but still full of their vintage character."

Welcome to the Next Chapter
An eye-catchingly adventurous design-an
exquisite exercise in chrome, plastic and
wood-the Jaguar guitar's delightfully off-
kilter aesthetics and unique sound made it a
darling of underground artists from the '70s
to today. Though it was the pinnacle of guitar
technology when it was released in 1962, time
(and technology) marches on so we updated
the Jaguar with modern features and materials,
hot-rodding it for today's players. The result? The
American Professional Jaguar-a dangerous
instrument with bite.
Developed by Michael Frank, the brand-new
V-Mod Jaguar pickup design expands the
guitar's sonic palette with hot, vintage-informed
tone delivering plenty of midrange punch and
definition. Retain high end clarity when adjusting
the volume control, thanks to the new treble-bleed
tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in
all its glory. The new modern "Deep C"-shaped
neck profile feels just right in your hand while
the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings
accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.
The improved tremolo and bridge incorporate a
screw-in arm and brass Mustang saddles that
stabilize the strings while adding a touch of sonic
zip to your tone.
The best of yesterday and today
, the American
Professional Jaguar is the latest form of electric
inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your
claim to a legend.
Simply put, pickups are the heart and soul of an electric instrument's voice. The American
Professional series features our newest pickup offering: V-Mod single-coil pickups.
Updated versions of our classic designs, modified for modern performance, V-Mod
pickups are packed with authentic Fender tone. V-Mod pickups are voiced specifically for each position, bringing out
the nuances of your playing.
V-Mod pickups are engineered using a proprietary blend of alnico
magnet types for the neck and middle pickups. Each pickup is voiced specifically
for its position, creating high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear
sound that made Fender a legend.
New "Deep C" Neck Profile
Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional "Deep C" neck
profile sports more substantial shoulders-somewhat between a "Modern C"-
and "U"-shaped profile. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a
more natural feel that's perfect for chord and single-note playing alike.
Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins,
making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the
neck with perfect intonation.
Engineered for ultra-stable performance, the American Professional Jazzmaster and Jaguar bridges feature
brass Mustang saddles and a screw-in arm. The new saddles keep the strings where they belong, even when
the bridge is pummeled, while the new arm lets you dial-in the arm tension that's perfect for you.
Treble Bleed Circuit
The treble bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume
knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the
instrument's volume is set.
New Hardshell Case
The Elite Molded Case features body-hugging contours to protect your cherished
instrument, TSA latches for increased security and nested stacking ability for easy
storage and secure transport.
