    Thanks Sweetwater - Sweet Jaguar!

    I received my Fender Blacktop Jaguar 90 (2-tone sunburst) a few weeks ago! I canít claim to be a guitar aficionado, but I knew what I was looking for: good tone, comfort, style, quality, & simplicity. This Jaguar matched up great in all categories! I knew I wanted something good for studio use & live use. In regard to comfort and studio use I was quickly drawn to the style of off-set guitars. I started looking at Jazzmasters but after playing a Jaguar I found that I really liked the shorter scale. I narrowed it down to the Jaguar HH because of its simplicity. I did not want all the trick switches and I wanted a hardtail in order to avoid tuning issues and saddle buzz. The silver HH looks great on-line, but when I saw it in a local music store I wasnít as impressed. I didnít want the black one because I already have a black guitarÖ so, my continued search lead me to the Jaguar 90, and Iím glad it did! Iím primarily playing it through an old Peavey Classic 50 tube amp, and for basic rhythm, the distortion I can get from the amp sounds great. For lead parts this guitar sounds fabulous through my Electro-Harmonix Big Muff. Iíve also played it with a few other distortion pedals including a Boss blues driver, and a barrowed Boss DS-1 and they all sound great. It also has a great clean tone and sounded good with a little chorus or phaser.
    So, the one is great Ė the offset guitar body is extremely comfortable for sitting in the studio, and it feels great standing as well, I love the style, and the simplicity is perfect! As far as quality, again I am pleased! I own a Telecaster that cost three times as much, and I canít tell much difference. I often play my brothers Rickenbacker, and yes I can tell the difference there, but for the price, Iíd still take the jaguar!
    Thanks to Sweetwater for very quick delivery, and a great setup! The guitar was ready to go right out of the box! Intonation was fine, and I could tell even the strings had in fact been ďbroken inĒ!

    I had my choice and chose the P-90 version because I just liked the tone. The pickups are hum canceling in the middle position anyway. That long stringlength behind the bridge gives this 24" scale length guitar extra snap. I found out you can get pedal steel bends by thumbing the b or g string behind the bridge. No need for a b-bender!
