From Fender's website:
Um, wow—Fender once again scales new heights of cool with the Jaguar Bass guitar. After all, we did invent the bass guitar, and we did design the Jaguar guitar, and this baby combines both into one unbelievably cool instrument.
Bassists too can now be blinded by the chrome and have more switches and dials than Mission Control at their disposal. The alder body comes in cool Black or Hot Rod Red finishes, with a thin, fast one-piece C-shaped maple neck (matching headstock on Hot Rod Red model). The rosewood fingerboard has aged block position markets, and the roar comes from two Jazz Bass® pickups with active/passive, series/parallel switching. So incredibly cool—we should’ve thought of this years ago!
