Recommended Posts

As some of you may already know, I have been working on a '65 Fender Jaguar for sometime now for a client. Well I finally finished. Richard, my client loved it. I hope you enjoy the before and after pictures.

Thanks!

Thanks guys! I worked really hard on it. Many many hours......

My client really loved it and was really happy to get it back in playable condition once again.

He bought the Jag brand new back in '65. He lent it to his brother in the early 70's and received it back in horrible condition in the late 90's. So it sat in the case for over a decade until he brought it to me asking if I could bring it back to life. I told him I'd do my best. Took me about a year to rebuild it and bring it back to life once again.

When I finished it, I plugged it into my '76 Fender Dual Showman and gave it a play......good lord......beautiful sound. Something about those nice old pups that no one can touch nowdays. Too bad I can't play worth cr@p. LOL!

I can see that you've restored this guitar to a "used but cared for " condition and you haven't tried to make it brand new. I applaud you for that. The instrument now has history, 'service stripes" some would say. We can see that it has had a career, but you have sensitively removed the signs of abuse that marred its presence.

I think this is a beautiful guitar, and I compliment you on a job well done.

Thanks Karcy! That was really well put! You just described exactly what I was going for!
