This guitar is beautiful to look at and easy to play. I love the twangy pickups, it is perfect for the style of music I play. I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone who plays grunge and punk music.

I had to order this guitar as no shops in my area carried them in stock. Guitar looks great, sounds great, but I am on the second one and thinking about returning it. First one I received sounded and played great, then developed a rattle when played. Turns out the truss rod came loose and rattled in the neck. I returned it. Ordered a replacement. Looked good, sounds good, but the bridge screws rattle like crazy. Also, doesn't seem to play as well. Going on line the rattling appears to be a common problem with the "Adjusto Matic bridge". Many fixes suggested on line ranging from higher gage strings (comes with 10's), "Loc Tite" on screws, replacing bridge with after market, shimming the neck etc. My internal debate is whether to deal with a "fix" on a new $800.00 guitar, or return and get something else.

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

    This Fender Jaguar is the easiest playing guitar I own and I've got a Gretsch, Gibson, Rickenbacker, etc. It doesn't have the sustain that today's hotter guitars have, but it does have that unforgettable '60s surf sound that no other guitar can match. I owned a Jag previously and it had terrible string rattle. Appraently, the issue has been cleared up as this one plays cleanly.

    Yep, it's old school, but if that's the sound your looking for, the Jag may just be the guitar for you.

      Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

      Just a brief review to let others in on a quality guitar. I bought this MIM classic style Jaguar because I already own a classic series stratocaster with essentially the same lineage and love it. This Jaguar is a blast to play. The fit and finish are on par with any American made Fender (even better in one case) and it sounds exactly as it should. Factory set up is very nice. The action is close and it plays fast. I don't experience the strings popping out of the bridge when I bend notes, but I am usually not very aggressive. It has that crisp, surfy vibe which is exactly why i bought it. I play Ventures, Hank Marvin, Dick Dale etc. enough to justify the expense. Perfect guitar for that genre.

      The guitar comes with a gig bag which will have to do because this offset body is big and weird. You will have trouble finding a generic case to fit it. I replaced a Gibson SG with this guitar. The Jaguar is far more sturdy than the SG but not as heavy as one would expect. The wood is well figured on my 3 tone sunburst model and the tortoise shell pickguard compliments it well. The electronics work as they should.

      I find myself playing this one more and more. Solid, attractive, great sounding and comfortable to play. I love it.

      Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

      I am a hobbyist. Mostly I play in my home, sometimes with friends when I can catch up with them. I own and play ten guitars. This is one of my favorites. I bought it used in mint condition from Guitar Center about six months ago. I bought it to play surf music and relive my youth playing experiences. It is extremely easy to play, sounds great, and plays surf music very well. I wish I had one of these when I was a kid. It also plays blues, country, and classic rock to my satisfaction. I like to play rhythm more than leads, I was afraid this would be a one trick pony. I like to play rhythm on it also.

      Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

      Questionable quality and uncaring customer service. The top pickup selector/switch broke after 6 months of owning this guitar. The Fender repair dealer (Triple S in Bloomfield, NJ) said it was damaged. Not sure how a broken switch is determined to be damaged and not a defect in the guitar. Fender agreed with Triple S and will not pay to have it fixed under warranty. As such, we have to pay for the repair out of pocket. Fender did not even try to look at the guitar and determine the damage to their product which is a bigger issue as it could affect other guitars. I do not recommend you buy this guitar or any Fender product. The quality is very questionable and the company refuses to stand behind it. Stay away from this guitar and go with a more established company like ESP, Ibanez, Gibson.

        Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

        I've had a longer battle than most with finding my sound. I went from a Strat, to a Jackson Rhoades, to an Epi Les Paul, to a Mustang, to a Gibson LP Studio, and nothing had that it factor for me, until I got this bad boy. In a weird way, it has everything I loved about those other guitars, with none of the issues. Very stable tremolo, great fat tone that can get pretty nasally when I want it to, and a neck that feels like it's made of silk. I've finally found my sound, and I'm now a proud owner of a Jaguar.

          Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

          Got this guitar today, and I was impressed with the look, feel, finish and most of all the playability right out of the box! I mean this sounded really good with just a minor tuning really. I have not swapped out the strings for Elixer 9's which I most always use. I have two strats, I have owned a tele custom, and I own a 73 Les Paul custom. But this one plays maybe better than the strats and feels as good to me as the Les Paul. If you don't like slim fast necks, then this is not for you. It is so easy to play. I always wanted one of these jags, sure glad I got this one, great value for your buck. I love this guitar! hats off to MF for quick shipping and sturdy packing.

          Sloppy craftmanship

          from Albuquerque, NM

          Pros

            Cons

            • Pickguard Crazy Scratched
            • Poor Quality Craftsmanship

            Best Uses

              Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Electric Guitar:

              The saddle screws were loose in the slots and rattled. You could turn them with your finger. They only stopped rattling if you tightened them all the way, which ruins your intonation. My new guitar also came with a severely scratched up pickguard. It looked like a rough-cut piece of lumber. Pieces of plastic were sticking out from the screws, like parts weren't unwrapped all the way and shavings weren't removed after drilling holes. Bad craftsmanship overall for the price tag. I returned it.
