Profile of Fender American Vintage '62 Jaguar

American Vintage '62 Jaguar

Introduced in 1962, the Jaguar® paired brighter pickups with a shorter 24” scale and Jazzmaster®-like control layout. Our American Vintage ’62 Jaguar has all the distinctive Jaguar features, including a trio of sliding pickup selector switches, upper bout rotary volume wheels, chrome hardware and tremolo lock. The unusual Fender mute is a built-in but removable string-damping device designed for surf music.
