Fender American Professional Jaguar - MN - Sonic Gray

An eye-catchingly adventurous design—an exquisite exercise in chrome, plastic and wood—the Jaguar guitar’s delightfully off kilter aesthetics and unique sound made it a darling of underground artists from the ‘70s to today. Though it was the pinnacle of guitar technology when it was released in 1962, time (and technology) marches on so we updated the Jaguar with modern features and materials, hot-rodding it for today’s players. The result? The American Professional Jaguar—a dangerous instrument with bite.

Details

Fender American Professional Jaguar - MN - Sonic Gray

The Fender Professional Jaguar is a streamlined version of a guitar design from long ago. It no longer has all of the roller switches, but rather an easy to use 4-way selector switch along with Michael Frank-designed single-coil V-Mod Jaguar pickups for vintage Jaguar tones.

As with all Jags, it has a slightly shorter scale length making it easy to fly up and down the fretboard and the narrow-tall frets and taper neck profile make playing this guitar super easy.

The Maple fretboard also gives you a bit more bite and attack than Rosewood would.

Professional

The American Professional range has replaced the American Standards. Made in America with high-end hardware and each one comes with an Elite hardshell case. There has never before been a run-of-the-mill American Jaguar so this is a new venture for Fender.

Pickups

The single-coils on the Professional Jaguar were designed by Michael Frank for vintage Jag sounds. The bridge has a lot of bite while the neck will give you that rounded tone you'd expect.

The 4 way toggle activates your pickups in the following way:

1 - Bridge pickup

2 - Both pickups in parallel

3 - Neck pickup

4 - Both pickups in series

When both pickups are activated, the toggle on the top horn of the guitar will act as a phase switch.

The American Professional models also have the Treble Bleed Circuit which keeps the trebles pronounced, even when turning the volume down.

Neck Shape

The neck shape is the new Deep C profile which is a tapered neck. This means it’s thinner at the headstock end where you play chords and may want to get your thumb over the top to fret the E-String. The neck flattens out the higher up you go to make faster playing a bit easier and a bit more fluid.

Frets

The Narrow-Tall frets make bending a little bit easier as they don’t provide as much friction or resistance as vintage frets do. And because they’re slightly narrower, it gives the actually fret spacing a little more room. It’s an incremental change, but every little helps…
