I had posted a general alert about Fender’s new Vintera (vintage era) line in the Stratocaster forum. This post is specifically about the Vintera ‘60s Jaguar.

I’ve always been drawn to Jaguars, and owned a classic player Jag a few years ago.

It seems this new model is a reasonable take on vintage specs. And the ocean turquoise model with a matching painted headstock makes my heart skip a beat.

I could wish it was a few bucks cheaper, being MIM. But MIM quality seems to be getting better all the time.

My local dealer has one on order, and I’m eager to check it out when it comes in.

The big difference between past models and the new and extensive Vintera line is pickups (closer to vintage-correct for the era the instruments represent), and several neck profiles available.

Fender has in the past offered the standard C shape on pretty much most of their stuff. This new line includes everything from soft-V 50s necks, to fatter, chunkier necks, to necks thinner than the standard C. It's about time.

If I was in the market for one, I'd certainly be tempted (I have two Jaguars, and both make me happy, and I can't see wanting a third).

A couple of weeks ago, I checked out the ocean turquoise model the dealer had received. I thought it looked great! Very nice looking finish, seemed to be in general well-made.

I only played it unplugged, and I found the neck to be quite comfortable. When I returned last week, someone had bought it. Another one is on order.

Tempting, tempting...

Sure wish they had stained the fretboard black.

Or just dealt with the rosewood like Gibson is easily able to at that price point.

Or maybe ebony. I always liked ebony fretboards, though admittedly Fender never used them much.

As for pau ferro, the boards I’ve seen have varied quite a bit. Some are darker, some lighter, some with almost a marbled look.

Dark, decent rosewood exists.

For something going for a vintage vibe, it really is the only way on a Jaguar or Jazzmaster.

I don't mind some of the substitutes (both my LPs have I forget what now Mexican something or other that's not pao ferro that I'm actually ok with - one is almost rosewood color, the other much more red)...but...those are extremely ultramodern LPs.
