Fender Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass
The Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass is a distinctive looking instrument that features a reverse Jaguar headstock and body.
See your friends turn their heads sideways as they try to take in the unique look of this cool looking bass guitar.
The Pawn Shop series from Fender has all been about "guitars that never were but should have been", giving you a breath of fresh air from conventional designs. These designs are inspired by the eccentric Fender creations of the mid '60s to mid '70s, crafted with modern technology. The resulting instruments give a diverse alchemy of esoteric Fender elements. The Reverse Jaguar Bass is the first bass guitar model from this family of instrument weirdos.
Based on the Jaguar Bass, this Pawn Shop model features the same design but in reverse - with both headstock and body giving an awkward but distinctively cool imagery. Its feels like having a left handed Jaguar Bass turned upside down with the difference of control knob, pickguard, input jack and switch placements.
This instrument features a cool new pickguard shape that matches the body and two enormous humbucking pickups controlled by a simple three-way pickup toggle switch along with two knobs. The body is reverse Jag body is made of alder and is available in three finishes - Black, Candy Apple Red and 2-Color Sunburst.
The maple neck is "C" shaped with 20 medium jumbo frets. One downside of this design is the lack of cutaway, which means the frets above 15 will be harder to reach. It is however a necessary trade-off to have a unique looking instrument.
Other features include 32" scale length, Fender High Mass Modern Bridge, Synthetic bone nut and a cool looking 3-ply pickguard. This bass comes with its own Reverse Jaguar humbucking pickup for the bridge and a Big Block humbucking pickup for the neck.
The Fender Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass currently retails for $799.99.
