Summary: One of the best guitar that I have, the sound is excelent, the finish is excelent, mine is 1994 Japan, I play it through a Supreme made in Germany in 1965 full tube 65W amp, a Fender 15W practice amp and a Crate 15W practice amp. My other two guitars that I use is Fender Stratocaster Plus 1991 made in USA with Lace Sensor pickups and a Epiphone Supernova manchester city blue made in 2004 in Korea.
Summary: This guitar is exactly what I've been looking for. Once I got it, it was just as I remembered. The Humbucking pickups beef up the tone of the jag significantly, but still equipped with highly adjustable pickup switches, gives you the option of several different tones. The neck is excellent and easily playable. It has fender construction. I'm in love with mine. If you're trying to decide between this jag and something else, no matter what style. I RECOMMEND THIS GUITAR!!!
Summary: Oh my god! My mom bought this for me for an early b-day present. So still overwhelmed by the excitement I plugged into my little 40 watt Peavey Practice amp I had in my close and um..wow... I've always wanted one of these guitars, but for the first um 10 minutes of playing you have to adjust to it, because it has a realy different feel to it and all the tonal possibilities are insane!!! I can't beleive what I'm hearing when I plug up and start playing.
Summary: Why Fender would release this guitar with such a low list price is beyond me. The sounds are very similar, and the short scale is very fast and easy to play. It took no time at all to switch from my other Jaguar to this one. I play through a Bassman head with a Marshall cab and it is the most beautiful sound. BUY THIS GUITAR!
