More about American Vintage '65 Jaguar®

The American Vintage series introduces an all-new lineup of original-era model year guitars that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, new American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender's roots—expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it's going, but also remembers where it came from.

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-'80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, we've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right. We did the work, and it shows, because there's pure tonal magic in each new American Vintage instrument.

The American Vintage '65 Jaguar® guitar marks a key chapter in the guitar's history. That is, after surf and before punk, when the sole '60s member of Fender's big four guitars staked its own gradually growing claim in the hearts and hands of a select group of alternative-minded guitarists who appreciated its distinctive design and offbeat status. The classic Jaguar shorter scale, dual-circuit layout and sleekly chromed-out design are here, along with a bound round-laminated fingerboard and larger pearl dot inlays—elegant touches the Jaguar acquired in 1965, merely three years after its introduction.

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.
