4 Fender guitars you’ve probably never heard of

The Stratocaster and the Telecaster are popular Fender guitars and everyone’s probably heard of them and / or even used them at some point. But how about the lesser known Fender guitars? Have you heard of the ones below?

 

The Jazz master

 

The innovative pickups (wider and flatter) gave the guitar a sound that ended up appealing more to surf rockers like” the Ventures” and the “Surfaris”. Later on, it became a driving force of the iconic sound of late 80s and early 90s indie and experimental rock.

 

 

The Jaguar

 

 

Fender discontinued the Jaguar in 1975, and it went from being a premium instrument to a guitar you could get used for cheap. This led to its post-punk era comeback with players like Tom Verlaine and Johnny Marr. Jaguars were also a big part of 90’s grunge and alternative.

 

 

The Mustang

 

The Mustang was an inexpensive “student” model with a shorter scale (22.5” vs. the standard 24”). It got onto the market in 1964, immediately finding favor with surf rockers. Fender produced the Mustang until 1982, when it started to transition its low-priced models to the Squier line.

 

 

The Jag Stang

 

Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain combined pieces from a Mustang and a Jaguar and added a humbucker as the tail pickup. He played his own versions, and later suggested it to Fender, who made two prototypes for him, one of which he played a few times on the 1994 “In Utero” tour. Since then, a version of this instrument has been produced off and on by Fender in the mid-90s and early 2000s. It is not currently available new, but they can be found used.
