After tuning it, I checked intonation. It was almost spot on. If it bothers you to be seen with a Squier by Fender, rather than a Fender, go ahead and she'll out the extra $1000 or more over what the Squier costs, but I can guarantee you that you won't be doing any band or listener a disservice by playing a Squier Jaguar.
Okay, for my having said that to have any weight you'd rightly need an answer to this question: "Is this guy a beginner?' Answer: No. I have been playing for over fifty years -- some of them professionally. I regularly play Fender guitars (Gibsons too) made here in the USA as well as the company's Mexican factory. This guitar holds its own. It flies. It soars.
A bit about the Jaguar for those less familiar with it than with, say, Fender's Telecaster or Strat. The Jaguar was created -- intended as Fender's 'top of the line' instrument -- during the halcyon of Surf Music. Leo Fender observed that many surf musicians were choosing Fender's Jazzmaster -- a guitar created with a very different sound in mind -- so he approached more than a few of those guitarists and asked 'how can we make it even better for your style of playing?' Then he applied their suggestions and the Jaguar was born.
What made the original Jaguar unique? Several things. One is its short scale neck. This made it quick, the player's hand needing to cover less real estate as it raced up the fingerboard. (It also made it great for those with smaller hands) The Jag was given an entirely new tone circuit -- two actually -- one for rhythm and one for lead. The rhythm is a set and forget design with low rolling controls for tone and volume. A single switch chooses between that and the far more complex "lead" circuit. It has somewhat typical tone and volume knobs and also three switches. Two turn the pickups on and off.Read more ›
Second, the guitar just looks AMAZING!! So cool, and so different from anything else in my arsenal- both visually, as well as tonally. I have the surf green, decked out with chrome and the white pick-guard. Awesome. The switches are so different too- and they provide you with a different look, as well as a ton of tonal options. I love both the lead circuit (bottom set of switches) as well as the rhythm circuit at the top. Both produce very cool sounds. Another thing that stands out to me, is the nature of these single-coil, old-school pickups. They produce a very unique, sort of "slap-back" kind of sound. I guess that's how you get that "surf" sound. And you can get beautiful, thought-provoking sounds form it in clean mode. But at the same time, and this is what really surprised me, when you drop down to the lead circuit with the bottom set of switches, and you kick your amp into gain mode, you can also drive it with this guitar. It will produce a killer lead sound, or even a nice, warm, biting hard-rock vibe with power chords and rhythm rock and blues. I just love it, and I can't wait to play it more, and see what else it will do. I've had it for about 3 weeks now. Get one if you're looking at it.Read more ›
I've always wanted a jaguar, but they've always been somewhat expensive.
I'd read such great reviews about this guitar. Most of the criticism I saw was that it was a Squier and not Fender.
I decided to try it out at a local store and I was really pleased with it.
Like many others had said, I think this is just a really beautiful design. The guitar just captured my heart when I saw it in person.
When I plugged it in I was really amazed at it's versatility.
I was really impressed with the variety of sounds that it can get. I'd thought originally that it also two different sets of volume and tone switches, one for each pickup (like gibsons), but it's actually two different sets of nobs for each circuit, a complete different thing. It has a "rhythm" setting, that gets some of those fuller, rounder, bassier sounds. The Lead circuit is brighter in general, and very versatile. You can toggle the two pickups on and off, plus you have a filter, which cuts the some of the bass of the sound when it's on (great for sharper sounds, maybe leads or something).
Another thing I actually like is the shorter 24" scale neck. It's thin and comfortable at the higher notes, and still accurately shape the chords on the lower notes and pick through them.To me, it's really comfortable, but I understand a lot of traditional fender players have replaced theirs for bigger ones. Someone has told me that this shorter neck has to do with it's sustain (or how long the string vibrates). Someone mentioned this in another review, and it's true it does feel to last less than my other guitar, I know what they mean, but I love this neck.Read more ›
