New Jaguar and Jazzmaster models from Fender for 2015

New 2013 Fender Custom Shop Jaguar and Jazzmasters

(2015 Update! – Fender lists these models as retired.)

There are some new additions to the Fender Custom Shop line of Jaguars and Jazzmasters.

LIMITED LA CABRONITA “GATO GORDO” JAGUAR

Sleek and powerful, the Limited La Cabronita “Gato Gordo” Jaguar takes Fender’s classic cat and revamps it for the modern pro player with a forceful TV Jones® Power’Tron pickup and standard Fender 25.5″ scale length (versus the traditional 24″ Jaguar scale length).

LIMITED CUSTOM DELUXE JAZZMASTER

A guitar that must be seen—and heard—to be believed. The Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster® recasts the classic Fender model in a beautiful select okoume body with a flame maple top and Honey Blonde finish, accentuated by a gold anodized aluminum pickguard and gold hardware. Definitely not your typical Jazzmaster.

New for 2013, the Jazzmaster Pro is a sleek addition to our Pro Collection. Designed for players attracted to the classic Jazzmaster body style who seek more modern features, it features a lightweight ash body, single custom-voiced humbucking bridge pickup and two-point synchronized tremolo bridge machined from 1018 cold-rolled steel.
