In the late 1960s, copies of American made guitars were being sold to and brought home by US troops in Vietnam, hence the name "Serviceman". These guitars are pretty close Fender lookalikes. This Serviceman Fender Jaguar copy is carefully assembled to look like to real deal, and honestly it's pretty dang cool. Lots of history seeped into this old wood
Two single coil pickups, master volume and tone knobs. Three slider switches including the "strangle switch" and rhythm circuit on the upper bout. You're definitely able to get a good glassy bright cutting tone that is signature to the Fender offset family.
It has a nice slim profile neck (.900"-.970") that feels good under the fingers. The nut measures in at 1 9/16".
This guitar wears its age well, and is covered with cool dings, nicks, and marks of character. This is one you definitely don't have to baby or be gentle with. A garage rock gem that doesn't mind a little rough housing. If you're a fan of Silvertone, Harmony, Kay, and other often overlooked vintage models, then this one is likely to be right up your alley. And even more so if you're a fan/collector of funky guitars with interesting history.
