General What is your overall opinion of this product? The guitar is great! The quality is a lot better than you'd expect for this price range. Squier has really started to improve over the past few years and this is so good that you'd swear it was a vintage fender. Don't spend $1000 more dollars on one with fender on the headstock when you can get the same thing here. I do have to say that I'm very dissapointed with AMS. I live two days away from their NJ warehouse and expected it to be here in that time. Instead they shipped it out from NV and it took well over a week to arrive. The only reason I could figure out is that they didn't have it in NJ warehouse. They should of stated this however when it was being ordered. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Top notch! Looks and feels like a guitar worth three times as much. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Nice fast neck. All controls are easy to use once you understand their use. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Deep and smooth and then bright and crisp with the other circuit on. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Amazing quality on the body and neck. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? You can't beat it for the price. I'd pay twice the amount for it infact. I highly recommend it. Playability How was the action out of the box? Needed some setting up out of the box. Nothing too bad though.
My Squier Jaguar was delivered after a snow storm on Sunday by FedEx.

General What is your overall opinion of this product? My overall opinion of this guitar is far above what I expected and at a great price. I have American Fender Strats and Telecasters and they are great (my std.). So I reference them in judging this Squier Vintage Jaguar. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I thoroughly checked out the quality of this instrument and it is borderline excellent. I had one fret that was a little high and I had it repaired in 5 minutes. The setup was good from the factory. Finish is excellent. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The body feel is great, the neck had a very good feel and the tuners worked well. The controls took a little time to figure out since there was no instructions. I used a small screw driver to tap the pickups while listening and change the switch positions and determine which switch was active. The top switch on the horn near the strap button, simply switches up for the top controls and down for the bottom set of controls. The bottom switches were easy, the one near the neck controlled the neck pick-up and the middle one controlled the bridge pick-up. The third switch was for high low tone. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone was great, selectable by switch on the bottom controls as well as the tone control. The top controls were variable also. One can uderstand why the Safaris used this guitar in "Wipe Out" as well as other great musicians. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint job was far beyond expectation. The glossy transparent sunburst was beautifully matched with the chrome and tortise shell pick guard. Controls were placed out of the way so as not to be disturbed during playing. The Whammy bar did a very good job and returned in tune. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The first guitar that I have bought and didn't wonder if I had paid too much for it. The overall guitar and the great sounds put this guitar well over the top for twice the money I paid. The guitar is crafted in Indonesia. Playability How was the action out of the box? The action out of the box was near perfect for me. I did have one fret a little to high and I could have simply raised the bridge adjustment using one of the two allen wrenches supplied or lower the fret a little, which I did. My hobby is working on guitars as well a playing them. I have an Electrical Engineerin Degree (BSEE).
Seems OK

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Well made, but sorely in need of strings and set up. It came close to being set up , but still lots to do, Check the internet for help. It's a Jaguar, and they are quirky at best. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality piece, not as good as the American one I used to play, but pretty close, 35 years later. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Comfortable to hold and play. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Tone improved with new strings (10's for now) and pickup adjustment. Should get better after it's all set up. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint is fine. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I Good value. Playability How was the action out of the box? Poor
