Be the first to review Fender Original 1966 Jaguar in 2-Tone Sunburst w/ Tortoiseshell Pickguard, Pre-Owned. Write a review ›

This is a 1966 Fender Jaguar in great condition for its 52 years - there is the expected wear to the body paint around the guitars edges, and there is some checking to the lacquer on the headstock. The frets are in great condition, and the neck is level and has no dead spots. This Jaguar has been well looked after - although the case isn't original, it is a fender case in excellent condition.

Unique to this Year: By 1966, Fender adds white binding to the fretboard of the Jaguar. Tuners also change to F-style tuners.

Body Style: Offset solidbody 

Wood Composition: Alder body, Maple neck with veneer Rosewood fingerboard

Design Elements: Bolt-on neck, dot inlays, 2 single-coil pickups with notched side-plates, individual pickup selectors, 24-inch scale length, treble and bass roll knobs, floating tremolo system, lead/rhythm circuit switch

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
