Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar, Rosewood Fingerboard - Metallic KO with Hard Shell Case


Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar: The Distinctive Sound of a Legendary Guitarist

Johnny Marr is best known as the strikingly dynamic guitarist-arranger-songwriter behind the Smiths, who redefined and ruled U.K. pop in the 1980s. A master of melody, layering, and texture, Marr has brought his own instantly identifiable genius to the proceedings ever since, in stints with The The, the Pretenders, Modest Mouse, and the Cribs, to say nothing of his solo career and innumerable guest appearances. The Johnny Marr Jaguar is a fantastically non-standard model that is as distinctive as the sounds he wrings from it.

Custom Design for Unparalleled Playability

The Johnny Marr Jaguar features a maple neck based on Marr's 1965 Jaguar with a custom profile and vintage-style heel truss rod adjustment. The 7.25-inch radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 vintage-style frets provides a comfortable playing experience, perfect for intricate chord work and lead lines. This design ensures that the guitar feels familiar and inviting to players who appreciate vintage aesthetics and playability.

Superior Sound with Custom-Wound Pickups

Equipped with dual custom-wound Bare Knuckle Johnny Marr single-coil pickups, this Jaguar delivers a unique and versatile sound. The four-position blade pickup switch, mounted in the lower-horn chrome plate, allows you to access a range of tones, from bright and jangly to warm and full. Dual upper-horn slide switches offer additional tonal options with universal bright and pickup-switch position four bright settings, making this guitar incredibly versatile for various musical styles.

Enhanced Stability and Performance

The Jaguar bridge with Mustang saddles and nylon post inserts provides improved stability and a smoother playing experience. The vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece and taller tremolo arm with a nylon sleeve insert prevent arm swing, allowing for precise and expressive tremolo use. These features ensure that the Johnny Marr Jaguar remains stable and reliable during even the most intense performances.

Premium Build and Aesthetic

This guitar is crafted with an alder body finished in a stunning Metallic KO lacquer, giving it a striking visual appeal. The gloss nitrocellulose lacquer on the maple neck enhances the vintage look and feel, while the chrome hardware finish adds a touch of elegance. The 3-ply white pickguard and black plastic control knobs complete the classic Jaguar aesthetic, making this guitar a true work of art.
