Fender’s first U.S.-made Jaguar Bass is a sleek and powerful beauty, upgraded with a versatile P/J pickup configuration, combination top-load/string-through-body High-Mass Vintage bridge, lightweight Fender “F” tuners with A-string retainer, and body-end truss rod adjustment.
The split-single-coil Precision Bass® pickup is made with alnico 5 magnets, while the single-coil Jazz Bass® bridge pickup has ceramic bar magnets with hex-screw pole pieces. All the other great Jaguar Bass features are here too, including the fast and comfortable maple neck, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and elegant aged white pearloid block inlays, multi-ply pickguard, lower horn pickup on/off and series/parallel switching, and upper-horn active/passive switch for dual-circuit design with inset bass and treble control wheels. Hard-shell case included.

Saw this bass online and got it. Very nice player, restrung it with LaBella white nylon wrapped flatwounds and it rocks. I was surprised that there were no switching instructions included. It is not really intuitive, there are online but it would help. Very nice addition to my arsenal.
