STRIKING MARR SOUND AND STYLE
Johnny Marr is best known as the strikingly dynamic guitarist-arranger-songwriter behind the Smiths, who redefined and ruled U.K. pop in the 1980s. A master of melody, layering and texture, Marr has brought his own instantly identifiable genius to the proceedings ever since, in stints with The The, the Pretenders Modest Mouse and the Cribs-to say nothing of his solo career and innumerable guest appearances. The Johnny Marr Jaguar is a fantastically non-standard model that is as distinctive as the sounds he wrings from it.
Offering a wealth of highly specialized features ideal for discerningly unconventional guitarists, this model is based on Marr's modified 1965 Jaguar. Dual custom-wound Bare Knuckle Johnny Marr single-coil pickups crank out incisive tone that's just the thing for slashing through a sonically dense mix. The four-position blade pickup switch includes a series wiring option, for thicker tone with higher output while the dual upper-horn slide switches "brighten" the tone with a low end roll-off either universally, or in position four. The maple neck sports a custom profile taken from Marr's original, along with vintage-style truss rod adjustment at the heel while the 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard bears 22 vintage-style frets. Modified to Marr's specifications, the Jaguar bridge features Mustang saddles, a chrome cover and nylon posts inserts for improved stability, protecting against shifts that may occur with heavy tremolo use. The vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece includes a "taller" tremolo arm with a nylon sleeve insert, ensuring it stays in whatever position you place it.
This guitar's hardware and chrome control plates add a touch of space-age charm to the graceful offset design while the redesigned contours and 24" scale length will be comfortable for players of any size. Finished with nitrocellulose lacquer, this guitar will wear naturally, reflecting a player's personality and playing style. A thoughtful update of a classic Fender design, the Johnny Marr Jaguar is a flexible guitar for unique players.

FOUR-WAY PICKUP SWITCH
Rather than traditional slide switches, Marr’s signature Jaguar has a special four-way blade pickup switch on the lower horn, delivering the bridge pickup alone, the bridge and neck pickups in parallel, the neck pickup alone, and the neck and bridge pickups in series.
BRIDGE POST/TREMOLO ARM SLEEVE NYLON INSERTS
The Johnny Marr Jaguar features special nylon bridge-post inserts for improved bridge stability, and a "taller" tremolo arm with a nylon-sleeve insert to keep it from swinging loose.
NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH
Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.
CUSTOM NECK PROFILE
In an especially authentic touch, the neck on this signature model has a comfortably broken-in custom profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) based directly on Marr’s 1965 Jaguar.
BARE KNUCKLE® PICKUPS
For specially voiced tone worthy of such an inventive and versatile guitarist, this Jaguar is built with "Bare Knuckle" Johnny Marr single-coil custom-wound neck and bridge pickups.
TWO "BRIGHT" SLIDE SWITCHES
In an extra-special design element, the upper horn of the Johnny Marr Jaguar features two slide switches—a "universal" bright switch that kicks everything up a notch or two, and a separate bright switch that only affects the "series" pickup switch position.
