This Fender® 2018 Limited Edition Jaguar® Strat® in Candy Apple Red is jaw-dropping! The combination of the Strat body with Jaguar switching system and Strat electronics gives you some cool tones.
The American Vintage '65 Single-Coil Jaguar® pickups are a bit warmer and mellower sounding than your standard Fender single coil pickups you would find on a Strat. The bridge pickup isn't super bright. Has a nice crisp mid-range. The thumbwheel control is the tone control for this pickup. Pickup retains it's definition even with the tone all the way on. The middle pickup is nicely balanced but it's the two slide switches that give this pickup a huge range of tones. The switch closest to the thumbwheel is the on/off switch for the other slide switch. The other switch allows you to select all pickups at once or the bridge and neck together. A very cool feature! The neck pickup is sweet and mellow. Perfect for jazz licks and riffs.
The 25.5”-scale maple Jaguar neck sports a “Deep C” profile, along with a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets for enhanced playability.
