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.
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.
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.
