I received the CP Jaguar Special HH in the 3-color sunburst recently, and couldn't be happier with it. This is my first Fender Jaguar, and have wanted one for several years. I was considering the Johnny Marr Signature Jaguar, but the CP Jaguar Special HH was a better fit for my budget. A friend of mine got the CP Jazzmaster a while back, and I love the build quality of that guitar, so the CP Jaguar has been on my short list for quite some time. After ordering it and getting a chance to play it for several days now, I can say that I made a very good decision.
The CP Special HH is very well made, and the fit and finish are flawless. The tonal options you can dial in are almost limitless, and this guitar can cover just about any style of music you desire. The short scale was somewhat of a concern for me at first, but after playing the guitar for about an hour, I could barely notice the difference between the scale length compared to my other guitars. In fact, it's perfect for my short, stubby fingers, and is probably the most comfortable neck I've ever played. If you're concerned about the fact that this guitar is made in Mexico, put your concerns to rest. I've owned many high-quality guitars that were made in the USA, and this is on the top of my list of my all-time favorite guitars. I look forward to many happy days playing it.
I also want to express my gratitude for the excellent customer service that I continue to receive from my Sweetwater salesman, Brad Moline. Brad consistently provides superb customer service and has always treated me really well when I have ordered merchandise from Sweetwater. Sweetwater is my favorite music retailer, and I would never consider ordering musical gear from anyone else in the business.
