Outstanding!

By Johnny

from Highlands Ranch, Colorado

I like everything about this guitar. I like the heft. Light guitars are not my thing. The electronics are superb and extremely versatile. I'm playing in a 60's/surf band right now, and I would have been happy to get those kind of tones, but this guitar is so versatile it will serve me well in a wide variety of applications. The pickups have nice full output, very even across the spectrum. Love the kill switch. The trem is par for the course, maybe a little better than most, I almost always have to do a little touch up here and there to get them to stay in tune, and this one will be just fine. The fit and finish on my specimen is flawless. I did have to re-set the neck to get the strings even across the fretboard, standard procedure with bolt neck guitars across all price points in my experience. It took to a set-up in about 20 minutes and plays like a champ (the gold standard of a well-made guitar in my book). Comfortable modern C neck profile. I had to deepen the nut slots slightly, another common procedure with a new guitar (they don't like to cut them too deep in the factory for good reasons). Fortunately, the relief is spot on, so I didn't have to tweak the truss rod. However, if you do need to adjust the rod, you will need to clamp the strings with a capo at fret one and remove the neck. Forget about the little faux vintage cutaway in the pickguard that shows you a peek of the rod end; the body itself is not cut to accommodate a screw driver, so you couldn't get one in there even if the pickguard slot was cut bigger. In order to adjust the rod with the neck attached, you and/or your tech would need to dremel out a chunk of the body itself at the neck pocket. Not worth it to me. There are some advantages with a rod that adjusts at the heel, so I'll just let it be. In short, I can't find a thing to complain about with this guitar. I'm so impressed, I even splurged for the Fender orange fur hardshell case. I own well over 100 guitars, and this one instantly found its way into a regular utilitarian rotation. It's a looker, so it will definitely see stage time, and it might even find itself in the studio as well.

A Solid Instrument

By Joseph Erasmus

from Westfield, IN

I spent a long time researching and looking around for a guitar that would get the job done, not break the budget, and of course look the part. After much deliberation I settled on this, and I am far from disappointed. Right out of the box, and bag (It comes with a high quality deluxe gig bag) It looked fantastic. There wasn't a single flaw as far as I could see. After tuning it and figuring out the switches, which by the way, are precise and do exactly as advertised, I got to hear how it played for the first time. It sounds incredible. Of course with factory strings that were never touched prior to my first strum it soon fell out of tune, but that problem quickly corrected itself. For the price this guitar is virtually unbeatable. Everything about the guitar speaks of fine craftsmanship and great quality. Of course if your willing to put more money into it there is room to improve, but nothing to fix. I had never used a tremolo system in the past and I still haven't gotten used to it, but it gives the player the ability to apply techniques that you would otherwise be unable to do. On my old guitar I screwed in a whammy bar, but as the guitar wasn't built for it it didn't generate clean effects and threw the guitar out of tune with minutes. Each switch or wheel carries out its intended purpose flawlessly and allows for and extreme variety when playing. Disabling certain pickups, changing between the single coil and humbucker advantages, and allowing the player to switch to the "low-cut" setting. There is only one thing that could make this a bad buy. Jaguars and Jazzmasters are an instrument of their own, before you buy this, make sure to play one and affirm that you like the feel. If you do: Enjoy.

Jaguar HH

By Brad Kennedy

from Lynchburg, Va

Great guitar. The finish and build quality is excellent. The guitar is very versatile as well. You can get a variety of tones from warm to dirty so it really works for almost any type of music one wants to play. The shorter scale neck is a little different at first but its fine once you get used to it. Also, it is a little heavy compared to a strat or tele, but I think this just adds to it?s fantastic tone. I would definitely purchase this guitar again and I recommend this guitar to anyone thinking about purchasing it.

Very versatile guitar. 4.5 stars

By Christopher Wyatt

from NC

I just recently bought this guitar and love it. The guitar has great versatility due to the pickup blending. Full humbucker and this thing packs a punch, roll them back and you get a single coil tone though not with the pop that a strat would have. The guitar had a very high action on it that was very difficult for me to play but this was easily corrected, I still play on having it properly set up however. I have two telecasters and this guitar really becomes my go to rock guitar, even over a custom HH tele with two seymour duncan humbuckers (59 and pearly gates. The enforecer pickups are great. I will say that the guitar is heavy so take that into consideration if you decide to purchase. My only complaint is that the guitars white paint has a noticeable blemish of color on the body but this is covered by my arm when playing. Its not too noticeable to others but I noticed it very quickly hence the 4.5 star rating I would give it.

White Jaguarr HH... nice!

By shaun

from Eastvale, CA

I recently bought the jaguar hh in white, for MIM the finish, paint job and everything looked super clean! The only thing is when I got it the action was a bit high, but pretty much every guitar I've gotten needs a setup... The pickups were not very hot, ... or not as hot as I'm used to or would like... but nothing a good overdrive/distortion pedal can't fix. The design I found to be very intuitive, but I can't help to think that instead of a sliding switch for the killswitch effect, if a toggle wouldn't have been better or a push button (as I imagine a momentary switch would probably be more useful) though it would change the look of the guitar, but if your looking to cut the signal between songs or whatever, then it does that well enough. The low cut or normal slide switch, I found that I never do the low cut as it makes the pickups less hot? or less pronounced? but if your looking to use the bridge pickup for rhythm, then I guess that kinda does it. I find that I use both pickups on to get the fuller sound I'm used to, as well as running both pickups at full "humbucker" setting. I've been wanting this guitar for about 2 years and finally treated myself, and I'm glad that they came up with this as the one with the stopbar really wasn't jaguar enough for my liking... my breakdown: nice features but use-ability of features could've been better. good quality & reliability so far, only had it for a month. Look and feel, very nice... I use a leather strap and it makes a world of difference.

Great Guitar!

By Jake D

from Las Vegas, NV

It sounds great, and the ability to change the pickups' sounds to single coil, double coil, and half coil is great. My Only complaint is that When I up strum because Im in a ska band, the volume knob lowers because of my hand hitting it.

Awesome & Cool Guitar

By Armchair Bronco

from Seattle, WA

I bought my Olympic White Fender Classic Player Special HH from the Kirkland, WA Guitar Center the first day they were available. As soon as I read the specs, I knew I had to have one. I've been a big Nirvana fan since the 1980's when I used to watch the band live in Seattle, and I always wanted to modify a Jaguar for humbuckers and throw in a TOM-style bridge. Well, Fender did all the hard work for me with this cool offering. I love the blendable coil taps -- I tend to keep the neck pup more towards the single-coil side and the bridge pup more towards the HB side. The kill switch is fun but it exists solely to let Fender re-use the existing manufacturing templates for conventional Jaguars. If not a kill switch, what else would you have put in there? I'm not quite sure if Fender got the values for the blend pots or the volume & tone pots right with this guitar, however. They just did a straight port of pots from single-coil Jaguars. I had my tech hook up a capacitor to the volume pot because I started to lose clarity & chime if I dialed down the volume. Even now, I almost always keep the volume pot at 100%. Someday, I may do more experimentation on my own. The TOM-style bridge is awesome and the tremolo break angle is steeper. I use floppy Gibson Brite Wires 9's on mine, and it stays in tune like a champ. Tuners are great as is the overall fit-and-finish on this Made In Mexico guitar. Frankly, I'm impressed with the high standards that must have been enforced down in the Mexico factory on the day my guitar was born. The only hardware upgrade I've made so far was to add a set of nickel-plated Dunlop straplocks. Overall, this is a great guitar if you're looking for some vintage mojo with a modern twist.
