Here’s a look at my old 2002 Crafted in Japan Fender Jaguar.
Unfortunately, the only video I have of this guitar, other than how I added a BuzzStop Bar, was one of the earlier recorded demos, so the audio isn’t very good. In the video below Darren is playing some rock into a Marshall JCM800.
A while back I bought a Fender Jaguar on eBay. The guitar was so cool that I just had to have it.
It had the block inlays in the fretboard, it was made in Japan, had a really nice Sunburst and had a couple of minor chips in the finish to give it that “Played In” look, it had also had a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck Zebra Humbucker installed into the bridge position that could be split from a Humbucker into a single coil, the guitar was COOL with a capital “C” and it was being sold for a bargain.
Now when played at volume the notorious ringing couldn’t be heard, as you can see in this video of Darren playing it through a Marshall JCM800.
Here’s a beautiful 2006 crafted in Japan Fender Stratocaster 62 Reissue I picked up some time ago. I was so surprised by the quality of this guitar when I first saw it, this axe plays and sounds so good, and the quality would easily be comparable to a U.S.A model.
There’s a heap of pics in this post, but first lets hear how she sounds, this first video is Darren playing through a Marshall JCM-800…
