As we’ve previously mentioned, Fender’s Mod Shop guitars are just one step removed from similar Custom Shop models, however they are only available to customers within the United States. Through a couple of our American associate dealers, we are doing what we can to rectify this shortfall.
Grunt, bite and bark
As noted at the front, this is one of the most exciting Jags we’ve ever had through. (Check out our soundfile, right now!) Beautifully optioned in rare Sherwood Green over Alder, the heart of the beast here is the set of V-Mod Jaguar pickups, wound hotter, for a slightly more modern tone. (Are you listening to the soundfile?) Jag grunt, bite and bark, all there for you to tap into.
To take full sonic advantage of everything the V-Mod pickups are capable of, you have a 4-way selector switch, with extra in/out of phase combinations (via the second switch, located on the bass horn), for positions 2 and 4, providing a more treble-focused output, (vintage honk!).
The Maple neck features a compensated C to D profile, (C-shape at the nut, reverse tapering to a flatter D-profile as you approach the business end, for a fabulously smooth and easy playing experience. The Rosewood fingerboard has a 9½” radius, and vintage-style narrow-tall frets. The board is a generous slab of choice AA-grade Rosewood, dark chocolate-y enough to almost look like Ebony!
3-ply Mint Green scratchplate; F-logo deluxe locking tuners; chrome hardware; 6-saddle Mustang-style bridge, modern engineered for stability, with the vintage-style barrel saddles tapered to match the fingerboard radius; vintage-style floating tremolo… an incredible package!
