  • Summary: First off. My Jaguar bass is a standard Black gloss finish jaguar that i have put Flatwounds on. It has served me very well and is pretty reliable in live situations. The Jaguar is pretty much just a cool looking Jazz bass with funky controls and an active/passive circuit.
  • Pros: very versatile tones, comfortable body, great fit and finish
  • Cons: controls can be a bit confusing.

  • Summary: I have a MIM Fender Jaguar bass in gloss black with rosewood fretboard in mint condition; I paid $600 for it. I liked it so much after i got it that I bought it a new G&G tweed case. I've only been playing bass now for 48 years, and only 45 years professionally.

  • Summary: I would definately tell other bassists that want a great Fender bass for a great price, to get their hands on Fender Jaguar. I have a 3tone sunburst and I really love the neck, However I am upgrading the bridge to either a bad ass 2 or a Hipshot bass bridge and will have the electonics sheilding...
  • Pros: great bass for the price and for under a grand
  • Cons: Cheesy Bridge and ground sheilding

  • Summary: Generally a very good instrument, but definitely needs shielding. The stock pickups aren't that hot, but definitely work for jazz, blues, surf rock and alt-rock. ------------------------------ they can't all be zingers
  • Pros: punchy when passive, tonal variety, smooth neck, easy fretting
  • Cons: noisy when active, tonal variety has a smaller spectrum than ibanez atk or g & l 2500

  • Summary: First off, I'm rating this Bass as I received it Brand New out of the box. It came with a truss rod wrench and the Bass, no manual. This thing was unusable. The battery was dead, no big deal I thought, cheap stock battery.
  • Pros: Great Looks, Versatile Tones
  • Cons: Neck Dive, Improper: grounding, wiring, shielding. Cheap: bridge, preamp, tuners.

  • Summary: I gave it an eight based on what I got for what I paid for it. All the guys I play with like this bass better than my other bass (1998 American Deluxe P). Mine had problems with the battery compartment.
  • Pros: Playability, modify friendly.
  • Cons: Heavy (ten pounds), neck dive.

  • Summary: I picked up a new 2009 Jaguar that somebody at GC had dropped and chipped the finish on the lower part of the body for $450 and it is the best money I have ever spent on a bass. Its thin, smooth neck is extremely playable and has just the right width.
  • Pros: Versatility, playability and ergonomics
  • Cons: Initially confusing switch layout

  • Summary: This is truly a standout bass! The features have all been mentioned before so I won't repeat except to mention that Fender seems to have worked out the bugs (at least in mine and the one at the shop) and the buzzing (faulty grounding) and rattling mentioned by some people playing earlier models is...
  • Pros: Pretty much everything...
  • Cons: If I really HAD to pick one a pickup blend function would be nice...

  • Summary: I've had a Hot Rod Red Jaguar for about six weeks now, and I've really had a chance to put it through the tests. All in all, I'm extremely impressed. The build quality and playability from the Japanese fenders is really almost up to par with the American made ones. The tone is extremely versatile.
  • Pros: Fast neck, fat tone, cool looks, quality craftsmanship
  • Cons: Can be noisy, no gig bag
