I just can’t get enough of the shape of this one, the Fender Reverse Jaguar Bass – I love all the old mustang, and Jaguar shapes, and franky this looks frickin’ awesome.
Those guys at Fender have announced the first ever bass to itsPawn Shop Series range of instruments, – the Reverse Jaguar.
It is billed to “offer bold personality, striking looks and daring tones”. It features a reverse body and reverse headstock (hence its name), a new pickguard shape, two Reverse Jaguar humbucking pickups and a streamlined control layout with a single three-way pickup toggle switch and two knobs for volume and tone.

From the video, the tone of the reverse jag sounds nice ‘n’ grindy which is personally one of my particular favourite settings, however I’d like to have maybe a heard a tone variation or pickup select in the demo for this bass.
