The Fender Jaguar began life in '62 as the typical surf-rock guitar but it wouldn’t be until the late ‘70s, when Punk emerged on the scene, that the forgotten Jaguar would become the affordable weapon of choice for the Punk rocker on a budget.
Punk hit big in 1976 in London and New York. And while the real thing flamed out almost as soon as it started, punk had seismic effects that continue to reverberate throughout popular music and culture. While many punks simply couldn’t afford a Telecaster or Stratocaster, the dust-covered Jaguars that had sat ignored in darkened retail corners for years were practically a steal. Punk and its subsequent mutations resurrected the Jaguar.
The real iconic status however came in the early 90's when Punk-inspired Grunge musicians began utilizing the Jaguar's raunchy and unpredictable tone to fuel the newly lit fires. In the hands of modern guitarists like Kurt Cobain, an anti-hero’s anti-hero who often slung a left-handed 1965 Jaguar during Nirvana’s intense and meteoric early ’90s reign, the Jaguar became a statement for guitarists all over the world.
