There are over 450 sonic blue jag-stangs in our Registry. Many MIJs and many CIJs. The photos there don't really support a simple answer as such. You are welcome to try and find more support using that same info though.
You can view all the sonic blue jag-stangs in the Registry by going to the viewer: https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/view
And then filter by sonic blue.
I feel that maybe '97 Jag-Stangs are greener than other year Jag-Stangs.
'97 was the first year that Jag-Stangs, along with other Fender instruments, switched factories from FujiGen to Tokai. FujiGen Jag-Stangs are "Made In Japan", while Tokai read "Crafted in Japan".
I think it's the earlier Tokai Jag-Stangs that look green. I myself own a '97 Jag-Stang, and it is definitely green. I also own a Sonic Blue MIJ Mustang from 2009, and the MIJ Sonic Blue is much more blue than the CIJ Sonic Blue.
New vibrato tailpiece for Jazz/Jag discussed here:
Offers extended range over the vintage style alternative.
Per Fender, it is a direct drop in replacement, but currently only available on the new American Perf II Jazzmaster. No word yet if or when it will be offered on Jags or as a replacement part.
Hi folks, I'm new on this forum. I've got a guitar that I know has an American Professional Jaguar neck (identified via serial number). However the body is some other flavor of Jag because it doesn't have the micro-tilt like a pro Jag would.
At first was sure it must be a Johnny Marr body because the neck pocket markings exactly match those on some other Marr Jags I've seen (I know electronics aren't the same, but I assumed someone modded it). But re-thinking the Marr idea because the body routing doesn't seem right. (The Marr Jags are all enclosed routs, where this one has channels between the cutouts.)
Any help from a Jaguar guru would be appreciated. Pics below.
