I was looking for a Tele myself but after trying many, i ended up getting one of these too.
Fender always seem to have setup issues out of the box. Some are easy fixes and some need professional attention like nut or fret issues. That seemed to be an insurmountable obstacle in finding a Tele so I ended up with the Jag
I think the electronics are a good upgrade from the stock Jaguar.
Mine can sound more like a Tele than a modern Tele does which was the selling point for me.
Modern Teles seem to sound shrill these days with their 'hotter' pickups.
One major issue with this Jaguar model is the bridge - I just ordered a Mastery Bridge to replace the stock one.
Johnny Marr (or his advisers) decided to put a Mustang bridge on this guitar because it is superior to a standard Jaguar bridge providing less 'stiction' for the tremelo system.
However, the string spacing on the Mustang bridge is 56mm whereas a Jaguar bridge is 52mm. This discrepancy makes the high and low E strings migrate closer and closer to the edge of the fretboard as you move up the neck. When you get past the fifth or seventh fret, the strings are prone to slip off the edge of the neck as you finger them which is not a happy sound.
Also, as others have noted, the finish seems very delicate even given that it is nitrocellulose.
My son's guitar has marks that just appear from nowhere though he doesn't care.
I preemptively polished mine up with a nitro polish (Virtuoso) to seal and protect the finish. We'll see how that works out but so far, so good.
The Jag is pretty unique for an electric guitar since it has a short scale length of 24" which is 1-1/2" shorter than a Strat or Tele.
I like this personally but it does make the strings looser than most guitars for a given gauge (this compounds the string slipping off the fretboard issue). Fender chose to spec this with standard 10 - 46 gauge strings. I think they should have done 11 - 49 which would have been an improvement in my opinion. But with a balanced tremelo system like this, you cannot just change string gauges without doing a full setup again. I may do this when I change the bridge out.
Lastly, I replaced the pick guard on mine with a red tortoise shell one for $20. Makes it look way classier.
The original '62 model was Olympic White with that pick guard.
I think when I get the new bridge installed and set up, this will be my 'Go To' electric guitar.
So I did replace some parts on this.
I put a red tortoise shell pick guard on it along with a Mastery Bridge and eventually a Mastery tremelo. Now it is the best guitar ever - sonically and visually. I have it hanging on the wall next to my Rickenbacker 360 (also with a Mastery bridge - and custom Lollar pickups) and it even looks better than that even though that is a tall order. I never really wanted this guitar in the first place but it will definitely be the one I keep come the revolution...
I would give it five stars as I have it now but only four stock from the factory.
