Price : US $2,247
This is a 1965 Fender Jaguar. Original case. Candy Apple Red. From the serial number,it is a 65 from the numbers on the pots and the fret board dots . The serial number says it could be a 66. Serial number: 114885. As you can see, this has always been a working man's guitar. This working man, to be polite, could not tolerate the original bridge design. So a Schaller replacement fit well with good results - much better intonation, sustain and reliability.
Also, to make it more stage worthy, a new set of Fender OEM replacement tuning machines and a brass nut were installed as well. Other than that, it is original. Most all of the original parts that could be recovered are included. The case lock latches were broken when the unit was purchased.
The pots and switches work good, have been regularly cleaned, but are original as is all the electronics. They may exhibit a little static once in a while. The vibrato bar has always been absent. All in all, it plays great, stays in tune, has just a little fret board ware on the first 2 positions, was a good companion and very much loved.
