This is a really nice Jag with a great setup and a superb feeling neck, thanks to that amazing playwear.

The finish on the body is in great condition with just enough wear to get that classic vintage look.  

The original frets show wear for sure but are playing well.  I set the price to help with the cost of the refret that it'll need eventually, but you will be able to play and enjoy the guitar for quite a while before you have to deal with it. 

The guitar was built early enough in 1965 to get the L serial number neck plate and the transitional pearl dots.

All parts and the finish are original and there are no repairs or issues.  There is room in the truss rod for future neck adjustments, if needed.  There is no trem arm or bridge cover, and the case is an aftermarket one in tweed.
