General What is your overall opinion of this product? Overall a pretty cool guitar. The TOM bridge is really the only weak point. The saddles fit onto the bridge loosely and move around and buzz. I ordered a roller bridge to replace the stock one. I have a similar TOM bridge on my les paul and it is solid with no issues Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint is nicely done. Playability How was the action out of the box? Action was good

General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is the first Fender guitar that I've ever purchased as I've generally been an Epiphone/Gibson loyalist. I wanted something with single coil pickups for the contrast and, honestly, the aesthetic look of the Jaguars/Jazzmasters was always more appealing than the Strat/Tele. I've been eyeballing Jags for years but never really looked into them until just the past year. So far, I've been really content with the product but not at first play. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The guitar is made very well considering the reputation "Made in Mexico" products generally have. Despite the obvious genres that Jags are commonly associated with, this guitar holds over very well with the type of music my band plays (indie, folk-based, ambient rock). It's taken some time to dial in the proper tone, but I feel it's complemented the music greatly so far and I'm eager to start writing music based around this guitar. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I usually don't buy guitars online without trying them out at a local music store first, and this was no exception. Overall, the neck feels good, the weight is comfortable for a standard gig, the guitar stays well in tune even with the tremolo arm, etc. For ambient, layered, and texture sounds which is what I'm generally doing with my band, this guitar works perfectly. However, it still can hold down riffs and solos well too, personally not as fluidly as the other guitars I own. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The Jags are notorious for their distinctive tone. There's definitely a brighter, high output tone especially from the bridge pickup but nothing that's offensive or can't be channeled by the tone dial or some pedals/amp settings. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Great finish. I'm a sucker for any sunburst finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Definitely thought it was well worth the value especially when compared to the Fender Jaguars priced at $2000. Again, I've never really ventured much into other Fender guitars or similar guitars, but based on this guitar alone, I'm happy with the product. Playability How was the action out of the box? The guitar did need to be set-up when it arrived. The B and high E string buzzed and the action was a little to high for comfortable playing above the 12 fret. Having to go spend money to have it professional set-up wasn't the most ideal thing for a guitar fresh off the assembly line that supposedly was inspected. Also, the tremolo arm was missing. I'm not sure if it was an accident or if it just doesn't come with one. However, tracking down a tremolo arm for a Mexican made Fender Jaguar was a whole other online process.
Awesome

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent. I can honestly say that of the five Fenders I've owned since 1984 this one is exceptionally well made. The fir & finish is top notch, and the feel is spot on. General Your general opinion of this product. I had expected some fit & finish issues, but was very pleasantly surprised. This is one of the best put-together Fender's I have ever owned/played! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? All of the above. Very versatile, the p'ups are wound hot so they do sparkle nicely. I just love the crisp shimmer on the bridge p'up with the tone cut switched in. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Outstanding. Not a single blemish, and believe me I've looked.
