How often do you get the chance to get your hands on an original vintage 1962 Fender Jaguar in the super rare custom colour, Sonic Blue? Well here on V&R we have only had 1-2 for sale over the years, so we were looking very much forward to demo this old & beautiful jewel.
The Fender Jaguar introduced in 1962 as a top-of-the-line model – designed to attract players from Gibson. The production ran over only 13 (1962-1973) years since guitarplayers found more interest in fx. Stratocasters and Telecasters. It achieved it´s popularity on the surf guitar scene. The one we have here is from September 1962. All original with case. Sonic Blue is a very rare custom colour for the early production Pre-CBS Jaguars, so we did not hesitate much when we were given the opportunity to demo this jewel.
Here we have Doc Pittillo from The Guitar Doctor. He told us a very cool story regarding his 1961 Fender Stratocaster.
Doc got this guitar when he was very young, when he just started being interested in music and guitars. The story behind it is very interesting. While he was working on one boat he met a man who was its owner. In their conversation Doc told him that he started playing guitars and that he likes it a lot. The man said that he has a guitar factory. That man was Leo Fender.
This 1961 Fender Stratocaster was one of the first guitars that Leo gave him. The guitar was unfinished, but Doc fixed everything. He said to Vintage & rare that this is one of the best sounding Strats he has ever played.
Doc played this guitar just for Vintage & rare… Watch the video below and hear that special sound. Enjoy!
