    Just wondered if anyone had info on Jaguar (brand) Custom Series bass (or guitars).
    I was told this Metallic Teal Green speciman was made in Japan in the late 70s or early 80s but I have been unable to confirm any details about the Jaguar brand.
    There are no other makers marks other than on the headstock.
    Anyone else have one? Maybe we can start a club!
    It plays great!
    Don't laugh about the strap.
    It was included with the bass and I didn't want to mess with "the vibe".
    Keep on rockin in the free world and everywhere else.

  2. What kind of pickups?

    I've shown the bass to a couple knowledgeable folks and they have been a bit confused by the pickups. One guy said they were modified (but there is no sign of any routing changes). No one has so far been able to identify the pickups (so far). Here is a close up.

    Montreal Can.
    Just got one like yours in a kind of blueburst. Plywood body but sounds ok and stays in tune. All original. No signs where it's made but I wouldn't bet on made in Japan.
    Looks more like made in Korea.
    No idea what the pick-ups are.
    Sounds ok though
