General What is your overall opinion of this product? Awesome, ready to go right out of the box! The guitar is comfortable and sounds amazing through both my Marshall and Vox AC30. Bought mainly because I'm a huge Johnny Marr fan, but this is one of the best signature guitars I've ever played. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Great quality. No issues whatsoever with the guitar. The case doesn't close all the way on one side. A minor detail, but it still bugs me. May be just a flaw on my particular case. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very comfortable weight, and the neck is smooth. I may lower the action a bit, but just my personal taste. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Killer tone options. I love the pickups. I haven't played it live yet, but in rehearsals it cuts through nicely. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I love the Olympic white. My favorite Fender finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? A little more than I was comfortable spending on a guitar, but no regrets. I love it. Playability How was the action out of the box? Ready to rock right out of the box. Was almost in perfect tune.
A new direction for me

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Mine seems very well made. Quality tuners, custom pickups, and flawless finish. The neck is tinted nicely and finished well. I think the nut could have been finished/sanded a bit to help slight tuning issues, but that's standard setup stuff. General Your general opinion of this product. I've never had or played a jag. I play an American strat and a custom Fano with p90s, so this is truly new territory to me. I wanted something different with pristine cleans...some jangle...and subtlety. That's exactly what this is. It took a big adjustment in my playing, as you will not be happy playing this for riff rock or blues... However, as I got to know it, I've really grown to love it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This is pretty bright. When you have the choke switches engaged, there is a bit of a volume cut, and little low end. The series "humbucker" position is not a hot humbucker tone. That said, as I mentioned, as I get to know this guitar, I really like it. The tones are new to me, which is awesome. You can get jangly high cleans, warmer fuller tones where 6 string chords sound beautiful. This guitar loves reverb and modulation effects because it is so clear. It has inspired my playing in new ways. Trem sounds great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Gorgeous. I have the KO. beautiful.
Impressive Jaguar.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The high-water mark for my non-Custom Shop Fender guitars is my old Eric Clapton Strat. That Strat IS the best guitar I've ever played. It works for ME in all the right ways. I judge every guitar I play/purchase/own against that Strat. I pre-ordered the Johnny Marr Jaguar for two reasons; 1) I love The Smiths and, 2) I was curious about the Jaguar and the tone it could bring. At the sale price of $1,649, I took the shot. I assumed at that high, non-custom shop price this guitar would be incredibly well built with amazing fit and finish. I was right. This guitar is a very high quality instrument. General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar is very collectable and very playable. You CAN get Strat tones and all sorts of surf tones. Remember, this one has the big position #4 humbucker setting too. Big clean tone if you want it...Massive dirt if you need it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Strat tones which I love! Surf tones. Fatter humbucker tone in the #4 switch position. Lots of tonal opportunity here...I've only just begun to explore. (Using Hayseed 30 and VOX AC-30 in stereo). Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It looks and feels like a Fender Custom Shop guitar. I got the white one.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar is beautifully executed in every detail. Finish, fit, sound, action. Its everything Johnny describes. General Your general opinion of this product. I've waited for some time for the release of this model. I am a big Marr fan and the detail he put into this guitar did not dissapoint in any way. It is perfect and a beautiful jag. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The pickups are a great surprise - just a little hot and with the wiring you can achieve dark to bright. It has so many different tones I am still trying to find my favorite. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I purchased the Orange metallic - and this is a beautiful finish. I had a shipped to the office and when it arrived and I opened the case players and nonplayers all commented on how beautiful it was. Its just eye popping.
