In 1965 Bob went electric...this is a picture from the 'Bringing it all back home' sessions with a new Fender Jaguar'62...a sunburst one with a rosewood fingerboard...
Fender American'62 Jaguar Electric Guitar
Offspring of the Jazzmaster, the Jaguar paired brighter pickups with a mellow, short 24 in. scale length.
A trio of sliding pickup selector switches, rotary volume wheels on the upper bout,
and chrome hardware and tremolo lock, are distinctive Jaguar traits.
The wacky and removable Fender Mute is a built-in string-damping device created with surf bands in mind.
