Leave it up to Reverb to giveaway a vintage Jag.
This isn't just any giveaway. This is a chance to own a piece of history. The sultan of surf, the prince of punk, the new wave warrior. The Fender Jaguar has always had a chip on its shoulder as the shorter, less popular brother of the Fender family. And that's exactly why we love it.

Who knew weapons could sound so beautiful. Check out this artist's work that can help eliminate gun violence in Mexico.
As guns from the U.S. pour across the border and fuel violence in Mexico, artist Pedro Reyes uses his work as a peaceful, cathartic form of protest.
