Everyone seems to be going utterly nuts for the Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar. Why? What is it about this variant on the classic Jag that’s got everyone whipped into such a frenzy? Well, why don’t you let Mr. Marr himself tell you in this excellent video?
If you didn’t have time to sit through the whole video or your’e reading this on a dodgy work computer that can’t play YouTube videos (hey, it happens), here it is in a nutshell: custom-wound Bare Knuckle Johnny Marr single-coil neck and bridge pickups; custom-shaped maple neck based on Marr’s 1965 Jaguar, four-position blade-style pickup switch mounted to the lower-horn chrome plate (bridge, bridge and neck in parallel, neck, bridge and neck in series); two upper-horn slide switches (universal bright and pickup switch position four bright); Jaguar bridge with Mustang saddles, nylon bridge post inserts for improved stability, chrome cover and vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece. And it’s available in two colours: Olympic White, and Metallic KO. Check ‘em out!
Sure, Strictly7 don’t strictly make 7-string guitars – they also do 6, 8 and 9-string models – but whatever the string count, their guitars are incredible. Various production models are available with passive DiMarzio and Bare Knuckle or active Seymour Duncan and EMG pickups. Check out their custom gallery here, but make sure you check out their production models too – including their Ola Englund signature model (read Ola’s blog here).
