NAMM 2012: Fender Johnny Marr Signature Jaguar Guitar Released
The Fender Johnny Marr Signature Jaguar Guitar celebrates the sound of one of the most highly respected and innovative guitarists ever in pop music. One of NAMM 2012's first announcements, this special Jaguar brings the legendary Smiths musician's ringing tone and distinctive mods to the classic Fender guitar. Known for a jangling sound, Johnny Marr has gone on to have stints in The The, The Pretenders, Modest Mouse and more recently The Cribs. Getting as close to that Johnny Marr sound as possible, this non-standard Jaguar has a number of incredible features. The pickups are custom-wound Bare Knuckle sincloe-coils in the neck and bridge position. Marr's 1965 Jaguar neck has been used as the basis for the custom neck, which features a vintage-style truss rod and lacquer finish - the headstock is also adorned with his signature. The Jaguar bridge, known for its delicacy, has been toughened up with the addition of Mustang saddles, nylon bridge post inserts and crome cover, meaning you can really make the most of the floating tremolo. The tremolo has been enhanced even further, being made taller and feature a nylon insert to prevent arm swing. Classic Fender Jaguar features remain, including 24-inch scale, lacquer finished alder body, 7.25-inch radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 vintage-style frets. Teh guitar ships with a custom case with blue crushed velvet interiror, strap, cable and strings. Johnny Marr is evidently very pleased with the guitar, saying "it has been a four year journey...i've taken all the aspects of the guitar in every direction I could, to improve it without losing the classic features." "It's been a labour of love and obsession, and a privelige."
