Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This was my first Mexican Fender product, and I have been surprised how nice it is. Everything feels solid and looks great. My stock bridge was crappy, though, so I changed it. General Your general opinion of this product. The one -- and only -- thing that has been a problem with the Jazzmaster is the stock bridge. The strings didn't sit well on it and it just felt kind of cheap. I changed it to a modified Mustang bridge from Warmoth, and it made this one of my go-to guitars. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The sound surprised me. The neck pickup is articulate and full, the bridge humbucker has more drive. I have about 20 guitars and I was trying different ones to find the right sound for a new band. When I brought the Jazzmaster, the band agreed, right from the first song, that this was the right guitar. I often change the pickups on my guitars -- not on this one, though. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It's a good-looking guitar. I have the sunburst. Mine was a B-grade because of a little sloppiness on the headstock finish, but no one but me has ever noticed (and it took me a little while to find the blemish), so I'd expect the full-priced ones to be pretty good.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? THIS IS A SCRATCHED AND DENTED PIECE.THE FLAW I FOUND WAS WITH THE UNDER LYING BLACK GLOSS FINISH .I HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE ON MANY GUITARS ( MOSTLY BLACK)THAT STILL SOLD FOR TOP DOLLARS.NO BIG DEAL. General Your general opinion of this product. ANOTHER EXCELLENT MEXICAN MADE FENDER GUITAR. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? ALREADY MENTIONED . Finish How did the stain or paint job look? LIKE I MENTIONED EARLIER A DEFECT IN FINNISH.OTHER THEN THAT IT LOOKS GREAT.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Its a fender of course it exudes quality. And let me tell you something to. I don't understand where people get off saying Oh if you do not buy an american fender it is not a real fender. Well let me tell you debbie downers it is a real fender. Just because it's made in good ol'mexico doesn't mean fender will skimp on quality. If I can buy a fender for half the price of an american made one, and get the same tones and quality you bet your short skirts I am going with the Mexico model. So get off your high horse and give them a try!! General Your general opinion of this product. Great guitar for somebody that does not want the typical stratocaster. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You can make this guitar do any tone you want. Since you are not restricted to the standard 2 jazzmaster pickups. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The best it is a fender they don't skimp on quality.
