In the Last Shadow Puppets' video of "This Is Your Life" you can see Alex playing that white Fender Jaguar for the whole video. In my opinion, I think it could be a Johnny Marr signature Jaguar because Johnny is a TLSP friend of mine, he joined them for the closing gig of the tour at Alexandria Palace. You can also spot Miles Kane with a Jaguar too during the solo. (1.29, look closely at the headstock)more
As said on Johnny's [website](http://www.johnny-marr.com/guitarchestra-2/1963-black-jaguar): "This is the 1963 Black Jaguar that I got from Isaac Brock when I joined Modest Mouse. Isaac didn’t like it but I loved it and I fixed it up and got it going. I wrote “Dashboard” on it and used it on the tour. Me and Jeremiah Green went out to Walmart in Oxford Mississippi at three am on a break whilst recording the Modest Mouse album and bought a load of stickers."more
There are couple of photos dating circa 1964 of Jimi playing what’s either a dark blue, or a black-colored Fender Jaguar with dot inlays. Tappy Wright who was Hendrix’s roadie at the time owned another Fender Jaguar which supposedly belonged to Jimi, and was given to him by Brian Jones of the Rollings Stones. This is almost certainly not the same guitar, as this one has square inlays according to the photos from the auction. Source: www.groundguitar.com/jimi-hendrix-gear/more
In this photo, Emily Kokal can be seen with her Fender Jaguar. And in [this interview](http://staticmultimedia.com/music/emily-kokal-and-jenny-lee-lindbergs-new-album-warpaint), conducted while on a promotional trip to Berlin, Emily Kokal says, "Yeah, Fender Jaguar is my main guitar that I play on tour. I also have a '63 Strat, which I usually don’t take on tour 'cause it’s presh. But I love to play that, too."more
In this photo, featured in this [Rolling Stone article](http://assets.rollingstone.com/assets/images/story/love-in-vain-dylan-and-the-stones-in-the-seventies-19780921/20121117-rs1978-thumb-624x420-1353297196.jpg), Jagger can be seen playing a Fender Jaguar. However, based on the odd headstock coloration, the neck binding, and the size of the neck joint, the Jaguar Mick is playing is likely a "Serviceman" Jaguar. These knockoff guitars were sold to American GI's in the Vietnam war in Vietnam and the Philippines, and are inauthentic replicas of the real thing.

On Sonic Youth's [website](http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/eq/gtr129.html) it says, about the Fender Jaguar Kim Gordon is holding in this photo: "Used by Kim: 2009 2009 -- CGDACD (What We Know), DADABD (Antenna), DDAF#AD (Calming the Snake, No Way, Walkin Blue, Poison Arrow, Anti-Orgasm) NOTES: Perhaps not literally a 'Fender', this is Kim's new Jaguar which has bounced thru every tuning for the Eternal songs in the short time she's used it. She seems to have rested on DDAF#AD for the tour, but we'll see. Eric built this for her with a Japanese reissue body, P-90 pickups, an Allparts neck, and a Mastery bridge. Red body Black pickguard 2 black P-90 pickups 2 knobs Toggle switch Mastery bridge Gauges for DDAF#AD = .052 .052 .036 .020 .017 .013"more
On Sonic Youth's [website](http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/eq/gtr52.html), about Lee Ranaldo's Jaguar, it says: "Used by Lee: 1992-1999 1992 -- ?? (Burning Spear) 1995 -- GGDDD#D# (Brother James) 1996? -- GGDDD#D# (Brother James) 1997 -- GGDGGA (Female Mechanic Now On Duty) & GGDEGB (Hoarfrost) 1998 -- GGDEGB (Hoarfrost) 1999 -- GGDEGB (Hoarfrost) NOTES: Another of Lee's Jaguars, stolen in July 1999.

Rosewood fretboard Switches intact 2 knobs Trem bar Tortoise shell pickguard Clover sticker Used by Lee in "Diamond Sea" video Listed as "CLOVER" on '95/'99 set lists."more
In this video we can see Brynjar Leifsson using and abusing a Fender Jaguar. The guitar can first be seen right at the very beginning in the far left side of the screen. Brynjar says about this guitar in this [*Music Radar*](http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/of-monsters-and-mens-brynjar-leifsson-talks-overnight-success-567537/) article "The Jaguar is what I used to record the whole album. It has a beautiful kind of punchy, clangy sound that I love. It sounds classic, and I guess it is."more
Theres nothing in [this corresponding interview](http://texxandthecity.com/2013/08/billy-talents-guitarist-talks-return-to-sa) but but this image looks to me like a Fender Jaguar Special Edition it's definitely a Jaguar of some description but it has a maple neck which makes me a little a uncertain. However looking at all his other guitars they are all customized in some way. Mainly Strats but its hard to tell exactly which model.more
Bargeld's guitars of choice are a Fender Jaguar and a Fender Mustang, as seen on the concert DVD God Is In The House and various other media appearances. Initially he used a battered Hofner Model 173 and a red Hofner Colorama II until they "broke down." After his effect pedals were stolen in the early 1980s, he exclusively relied on the Fender floating/dynamic tremolo (like the Hofner units)—which both raise and lower pitch—Fender Twin amplifiers, metal slides, and changing his amp settings for each individual song, to create a unique guitar sound.more
Hawley used a 1963 model on Truelove's Gutter, as reported in Guitar Buyer, October 2009: "Then the old lake placid blue ‘63 Fender Jaguar – that’s unreal, that. When you play an instrument like that, you can see why people piss their pants over the pre-CBS Fenders, because they’re just a universe apart."more
Rowland used this Jag almost exclusively throughout his career. His brother, Harry, writes: "...he had always been impressed with an old Fender Jaguar that Ollie Olsen had briefly owned. Rowland found his Jaguar in a shop in the centre of Melbourne. When he asked to see it, he was informed by the shop owner that if he expected him to get it down from the wall, then he would have to buy it. I saw it at his house the next day. My request to have a turn wasn't overly welcome and I felt like a crippled gorilla as I delicately raised it from its case to place on my knee." At least one site refers to the Jaguar as a '63. This cannot be the case; as Harry notes, while the date of the guitar is probably not going to become apparent any time soon, the block inlays and bound fretboard place it after the 1965 CBS takeover of Fender, as these features were introduced by the new management in '66. Additionally, since the Jaguar's original production run ended in '75, there's approximately a 9 year window in which the instrument's year of production lies. The instrument seems to have retained its original bridge (Jaguars frequently have this part replaced with that of a Fender Mustang, a Gibson Tune-O-Matic or one of a few aftermarket alternatives) and at some point between 2002 and 2005 (using dated photos from Rowland's tribute site rowland-s-howard.com) he made the addition of a sticker/decal of what appear to be some roses just behind the control plate that bears the lead circuit controls and output jack. Close-ups appear at various points in the "Autoluminescent" documentary. A tumblr post copied from Australian Guitar magazine (also the article calling the Jag a '63) states that Rowland bought the Jag in '78 and quotes him as saying: “They’re such incredibly idiosyncratic guitars and they’re far from perfect, but for some reason it fits me. I used to have a Firebird before I had the Jaguar, but anything else you’ve seen me holding would have been borrowed for some reason or another. I don’t have a spare, so when things go wrong you tend to have to borrow things from support bands, with disastrous results. Particularly in Europe, the support bands can have four or five guitars… and it almost seems to be in direct ratio to how bad they are.”more
In [this interview with Premier Guitar magazine](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/22907-metz-alex-edkins-relentless-aggression?page=2), Edkins is discussing his Jazzmaster when he notes that he also owns a Jaguar. "I restring [my Jazzmaster] a lot to keep it even more janky and bright-sounding, and also so I don’t have to use my backup, which is a Fender Jaguar. The Jaguar is a great-sounding guitar—I think it’s a ’64—and it’s got that fantastic vibrato bar..."more
The Fender Jaguar is an electric guitar by Fender Musical Instruments characterized by an offset-waist body, a relatively unusual switching system with two separate circuits for lead and rhythm, and a medium-scale 24" neck. Owing some roots to the Jazzmaster, it was introduced in 1962 as Fender's feature-laden top-of-the-line model, designed to lure players from Gibsonmore
