I’ve been a huge fan of Johnny Marr since the early 1980s. So when Fender issued the Johnny Marr Signature Edition Jaguar in 2012 I was delighted. Did I want one? Maybe. Probably.
But I wasn’t entirely sure.
Yes, it looked amazing. But it wasn’t cheap and I didn’t really like the colours that it came in.
For a while I thought about buying one and having it re-sprayed. But I didn’t think I could bring myself to buy a perfectly good guitar and then take it to bits.
And then one day the universe sent me a sign. I found someone on who’d taken a Johnny Marr Signature Edition Jaguar, broken it down into its component parts and put them all up for sale separately.
I knew what I was going to do next.
