FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Jaguars & Jazzmasters / Jaguar Classic Player in Oly White w/single coils--does it exist, or did I buy a misrepresented Squ



Aug 3rd, 2019 02:11 PM   Edit   Profile  

Hey, did Fender ever release a single coil version of the Classic Player Jaguar in Oly White w/tort guard?

I know there's an HH version, but I bought a (used) Oly White Jag that purports to be a Classic Player, but is routed for single coils. But I can't find another Oly White Classic Player with single coils online no matter how hard I look.

I see that there's a Squier Classic Vibe in white w/tort. I'm wondering if that's what this body is?

I can't go by the neck, because it was replaced with a "Modern Player" before I bought the guitar.

Any/all feedback appreciated. I'm selling this guitar and I don't want to misrepresent it. Does anyone know for sure, or can anyone offer ways of distinguishing between a classic player and a classic vibe?

It has a "Fender" stamped tailpiece which the Squier doesn't seem to have.

Here's a link to some pictures of the guitar. Please note that the bridge, pickups, and pickguard were all modified by the owner before me.

I gave it a few days because I thought someone else might respond.

The neck is (as noted) off of a Modern Player Jaguar, and only the body and trem are alleged to be from a Classic Player. The trem location is wrong for a CP, though - it's in the original location (farther from the bridge than on CPs, which are closer to increase break angle). I don't remember single coil models coming in white, though. I thought they were just CAR and 3TSB.

This could be a MIJ body or a Squier. I'm not sure. The best way to figure it out would be to disassemble and look for barcodes.

All in all, though - and I don't mean it in a bad way - I'd call this a partscaster. It's got a mystery body, fancy pickups, an abnormal Mustang bridge (they usually don't have height adjustment screws), a Fender neck but from an unusual model, and a (maybe imported, but still) real-deal Fender trem.

Thanks for your reply Brent.

I'm thinking it's MIJ because it has the "Fender Pat#"-stamped bridge, in the correct location for MIJ. It also has an "F" neck plate...

The neck pocket has a big white "E", and some other markings that are too hard to read...
