I happened upon a player quality 1964 Jaguar at a guitar shop today. It's sunburst and shows lots of wear on the body- this baby obviously got PLAYED!

Anyway, the guitar is 100% original and plays/sounds great. Action is superb and frets are in excellent condition.

They want $2675 for it plus tax (call it $3K total). I have no idea if this is a good deal or bad deal and could use your thoughts on this, pro and con.

Many thanks!

goto reverb.com and check out some of the values of what they are asking. i think there is an option to see statistics on values when you go there as well.
that might help. that sounds nearly the realm of a new american vintage or used custom shop one- the price you are talking about. any pics?

It's certainly no bargain, but if you can swing it and it makes you happy, worst case you spend a few hundred for the time you have it.

Depending on how well-worn and what's included (original case, condition of case, etc) and the fact it's not a custom color, I'd say it's up to 20% high, but...I don't have it in hand to play.

Given what 2-3k buys you these days, it's a case of how does it stack up against other instruments.

That said, good Jaguars are hard to find and it *is* a pre-CBS if everything checks out.

At that price, I'd want it taken apart (they can do it) and inspect the pots/wiring etc for changes. You're paying a premium over market, and anything messed with they should come down fast.

Depending on condition $3K all in would put it at the top of the current market for a non-custom sunburst but don't let that stop you. A guitar you can actually test drive beats the hell out of some photos on ebay so don't forget to factor that angle into your decision.

Welp... I called the store back and the guitar had already sold instantly to the guy who saw it right behind me. Sold at $2675+tax= about $3K.

You snooze, you lose...
