A unique sonic chisel with the beauty of rosewood.
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.
A thoughtful update of a classic Fender design, the Johnny Marr Jaguar is a flexible guitar for unique players. Includes hardshell case.
