***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

Guitar of the week #59 - Fender FSR Jaguar HH

Fender FSR Jaguar HH

Note: This is an FSR (Fender Special Run) Fender guitar, meaning very limited quantity, meaning if you like it, get it now or you'll never see it again.

This is a cool guitar. The finish is Sea Foam Pearl, and compared to the fugly Blacktop Series guitars Fender released prior where the skirted knobs didn't work with the design at all, on this guitar they work perfectly since the original Jag had "witch hat" knobs on it. The only difference is that these are black to match the pick guard, and yes, it absolutely and totally works.

What is this guitar best characterized as? A rocker guitar. As in not a surf guitar. It's also a ridiculously easy-to-play guitar with its 24" short scale length.

Basically, what we've got here is an offset waist short scale hardtail axe with a pair of hot humbuckers in it. Stupidly easy to operate, stupidly easy to play and looks cool.

While I don't like the hardtail version of the Jazzmaster, this hardtail Jag hits all the right marks. Right color, right style, right design, right everything.

My only nitpick? I wish it used the traditional curvy "JAGUAR" logo on the headstock. Other than that, this one is a winner.

It's also a stupidly easy collectible for those of you out there that collect guitars.

Like I said above, if you like it, grab it now before it's gone.
