More about American Vintage '65 Jaguar®

La série American Vintage présente de toutes nouvelles déclinaisons de modèles originaux, qui viennent redonner vie à l'histoire et à l'héritage de Fender d'une manière authentique. Dotés de caractéristiques clés et de spécificités techniques incontournables, depuis les années 50 jusqu'au milieu des années 60, les nouveaux instruments de la série American Vintage s'ancrent profondément dans les racines de Fender. En perpétuant adroitement son inébranlable volonté de créer des guitares américaines novatrices, la marque Fender démontre clairement qu'en plus de savoir où elle va, elle n'oublie pas d'où elle vient.

La série American Vintage a pendant longtemps procuré à Fender ses meilleures ventes de guitares. Sa commercialisation, au début des années 80, était en fait l'un des signes avant-coureurs du retour fracassant de Fender, tandis que s'achevait le règne de CBS. Aujourd'hui, c'est non sans audace que Fender repart de zéro pour présenter une série American Vintage originale comportant de nouvelles caractéristiques et spécificités, ainsi que le plus haut niveau de précision vintage jamais atteint. Au lieu de purement et simplement remplacer nos anciens modèles, nous avons repensé le concept de la réédition vintage de A à Z, en restaurant les outils originaux, en élaborant de nouveaux micros, en retravaillant les couleurs vintage, et plus encore. Pour ne rien laisser au hasard, cette nouvelle aspiration est basée sur d'authentiques guitares vintage. Le contrat a été rempli, et pour preuve : chaque instrument American Vintage délivre une sonorité tout bonnement magique.

L'American Vintage ’65 Jaguar marque un tournant dans l'histoire de la Jaguar. Nous sommes dans une époque située entre la fin de la surf music et le début de la musique punk, lorsque la seule représentante des années 60 des quatre guitares Fender principales parvient à trouver son chemin vers le cœur et les mains expertes d'une poignée de guitaristes d'avant-garde, appréciant sa conception unique et son statut d'outsider. Le diapason plus court, la configuration à deux circuits et l'esthétique chromée élégante, signes distinctifs de la Jaguar, sont conservées, avec en plus une touche laminée et filetée, ainsi que des points de repère en nacre plus larges, ornements dont la Jaguar a hérité en 1965, soit trois ans seulement après sa commercialisation. Disponible en finitions trois tons Sunburst et Candy Apple Red (édition limitée).

65 Jaguar silences longtime critics

(5.0)
Fenderjaguarmaster on April 28, 2014 (updated April 29, 2014)

I've owned Squier, Japanese Jaguars and a 1966 Vintage Jaguar over the years, so have a good knowledge base to compare these new '65 USA reissues.

The reissues available prior to these new '65 Jaguars are a long way from a vintage example indeed. Whereas this '65 is quality all-round. Out the case it smells, looks and feels high-quality. The CAR finish shows the wood grain of the light body. A guitar that meets 'first impressions count'.

Strapped on, the offset body feels incredibly well-balanced and finished, and the contours are vintage in feel; deep and smooth. The neck is a dream; a nice full feeling C-shape that is fast and still very manageable for small hands. More 'grown-up' than previous offerings, finished nicely with quality binding.

The pickups have a tremendous range and quality of tone to them, without customary single-coil hum due to the pick-up claw. From spikey/punch punk/grunge snarly on the bridge, to a rounded, sweet tonality bridge/neck together, to a full, warm neck pickup with much clarity. Using the bass-cut-slide switch the Jaguar sounds more hollow and subtle; perfect for those reverb drenched jangles. Switch into the rhythm section, and unlike a Jazzmaster, there isn't a notable drop-off in output or clarity. Instead, you have a very usable Jazz tone that sounds perfect for flat-fives and mixolydian scales.

The switches work very smoothly and without effort or clang; a vast improvement over Japanese offerings. The wrongly maligned bridge/tremolo is very smooth/responsive and excels at emotive shimmers and dives. The bridge mute adds to looks and excels at a providing a palm free mute sound; great for surf and more.

OK, these reissues are pricey. 13 Flatwounds are best on the bridge and Jag's are pretty crowded control-wise. However, they really are the closest Fender have come to vintage examples thus far outside Custom-Shop guitars. Across the range on offer, they're keeper guitars. Try one for a pleasant surprise!

This is a great guitar. I have no issues at all. The tremlock does not function in a reverse matter to the vintage models, like the reviewer below stated. It's exactly the same. I'm assuming he doesn't have the original '64 jag anymore and can not remember it well enough. The hardware is of good quality, as you would expect from an American Fender. The switches are of good quality as well. They did not rattle or move around much. They're better quality than the switches you see on the imports. The pots and wiring are all great. The only real gripe is the cost. It's a bit high. The AVRI '62 jag was expensive enough.This reissue is solid and very accurate.

I recently purchsed the subject item to fulfill a flashback to a new 1964 Jag I bought in 1964. The reissue has some of the same vibe as the original but I noticed a certain cheapness to the RI, with switches that rattle and feel cheap; the trem-lock worked backwards to the original and broke shortly after purchase and the knobs were off center when turned to full on or off. While the sound was good I guess they're never like remembered but it still had the short scale I love and is still fun to play. Overall I'd give the 62 AVRI a 6.5 out of 10.
