Le Jaguar

I traded a Brown Fender Princeton & a refin Fender Musicmaster II for a 1964 Fender Jaguar. I've never had one of the "mod" Fenders before. The "mod" guitars are the Jaguar, the Jazzmaster, & the Mustang. At the point of it's release, the Jaguar was the top of the line Fender. In hind sight, it had too many bells & whistles for the market to sustain. People wanted a more simple operation. It contained the "Jazz" circuit... which was, in essence, another set of controls which gave another sound option. It also has a "buzzy" sounding bridge. There are ways around that though. This is a picture of A Jaguar... not my Jaguar.
Michelle & I saw 'Hannibal Rising.' It's pretty gross, but I liked the back story to the Hannibal Lechter character. The actor who played him SUCKED!
