Mint original pre CBS Fender guitar with original Tolex case, keys, tremolo and mute cover. (keys are ancient and still work in the locks.) There are a few tiny chips which I have photographed and they are not visible from the front.

Original pots, pick-ups, switches and wiring. All original Kluson tuner pegs except E tuner peg which we think is a 60s replacement. Neck is straight, stamped and verified.

Best condition Jaguar for sale anywhere...

Story:

Guitar was purchased new in Cali in 1963 by an older gentleman who was in a Surf band in the 60s in LA and a few rock bands in the 70s and early 80s. His health deteriorated in the 80s and he sadly died of cancer. 

His younger sister took ownership of the guitar in the 80s and she said he had various guitars but this particular one was very special to him, as he bought it new and cherished it until his death. She kept it cased and stored from the 80s until she sold it to a private collector in Canada in the early 2000s where it remained in his collection for over a decade. I since purchased it from him and imported it to England where it has remained in my personal collection.  I have played it very rarely and took great care of the guitar as it has been for many, many years.

The guitar has a fantastic tone and mojo and the single coil pickups sound superb. I personally used it for finger picking as it creates a lovely dreamy sound with sparkle and clarity.

Also sunburst paint of this era is all unique and I think this one is particularly stunning.

This guitar is a piece of history and art and would be a gem to anyones collection. If there is anything I may have missed feel free to contact me with any queries (more photos) or offers and I would be delighted to try and facilitate any requests.
