Early 1962 Fender Jaguar Serial Number Database & Log.

Here at JTKM STUDIO we continually search for the very first 1962 Fender Jaguar's that were produced.  Over

the years I have logged the serial numbers of the earliest examples that have been on the market, that I own or have previously owned.  Most, but not all of the serial numbers listed here are of the first form of the Fender Jaguar with a 9-hole pickguard.  If you come across any 'new' serial numbers do let me know, along with a few photographs and I will update this database accordingly.

1962 Fender Jaguar Specification

The very first Fender Jaguar's have the following specifications: 

  • Brazilian Rosewood slab board fretboard (CITES Annex A specimens and CITES Article 10 Licence required to trade or offer for sale worldwide)

  • 9-hole pickguards with one screw lacking near the bass side of the bridge pickup

  • flat-headed pickup height screws

  • flat-pole pickups

  • pencil or ink neck dates no later than March 1962

  • pots will almost certainly date to mid/late 1961.

  • Most likely a non-matching headstock.

  • Custom colours may have factory original tortoise pickguards.
