Left Handed Tone Machine

Welcome addition to my left handed collection. Great set up - 50 point inspection was a great surprise vs local shops. Really appreciated Drew's advise as an option to my Jazzmaster quest. Looking forward to more opportunities from Sweetwater guitar. Supro or Vox amps next....Celestion G12H30 speakers... Keep us lefties in mind. Thanks.

Beautiful guitar in both looks and sound

Don't be too concerned about the "Made in Mexico" tag. It looks great, sounds great, and feels great.Everything on this guitar looked immaculate and the Sweetwater staff did an absolutely FANTASTIC job of double-checking the guitar over. Coming from MIJ Jaguars and Jazzmasters, this is of the same quality as the Japanese guitars i've owned. The case is great too!

To me this is the better deal!?Why , well for $100 less you get a perfect guitar as opposed to one that looks like you took it off of the stage at the Nirvana show you were lucky enough to see.Do realize that I still listen to Nirvana but I play my own music on this guitar.Once you own this guitar you won't play your other guitar's at least for a while.It's that good.Also Sweetwater has the best people and service of all the places I shop.

Not just for Nirvana/Kurt Cobain fans!

While I am a Nirvana fan, the earlier release of the relic'd version of this guitar did intrigue me... imagining the distortion and clean tones I've seen Kurt's original dish out. Some of the most powerful gain I've ever heard was courtesy of standing on the floor of Roseland Ballroom watching Nirvana live during their Inutero tour. The problems I had with the guitar were, 1) I did not want a guitar that would only sound good doing Nirvana songs, and 2) a "new" guitar... needs to be new! I loved Kurt, but I'm not looking to be him, I didn't feel the need to have his 'exact' guitar. Since the release of that guitar I have probably hunted down and listened to or watched every clip I could find of that guitar. It was so tempting, and as more folks posted clips, I finally started to hear it out of the 'Nirvana context'. Low and behold it sounded great being used for other styles too. REALLY GREAT And even though the super distortion was what initially caught my ear, I was in awe of it's clean possibilities too. Then came the NOS version... it was a no brainer. The end result... My fingers are black and blue because I can't put this guitar down and stop playing it. It is INSANELY well made, assembled and configured. It sounds better than any guitar I've ownd and I'd put it up against any of my buddies high end Fenders or Gibsons. It looks cool, is extremely comfortable. I have been trying to get used to the bridge placement. Seems like less space than I've had with other guitars for palm muting, however the noticeable difference has dissappeared already. No fault of the guitar itself, I've heard it mentioned by other Jaguar owners so it wasn't a surprise. All in all... I'm in love with this guitar. I'm in a hard rock heavy band and this is almost too ferocious, rolling off on the gain on my presets still left plenty of growl to spare. On the clean end... thick and creamy, smooth, plenty of room for high end shimmer if you want it. The guitar has great response, give it a little bit more of a smack and it digs in, let up and it whispers sweetly. Last but not least... Zach of Sweetwater actually called me up just to make sure that I had not ordered a lefty by accident. I had a great talk with him and it was the best experience I've had with a sales rep for music gear. No pressure, talking shop and he totally understood what it meant for me as a lefty to find a great guitar and not be 'settling'. Sweetwater is an example for any company that wants to make service just as high a priority as having great products at great prices. I will only shop with them going forward if this is what I can expect. Good for you guys, this is how a shopping exeperience SHOULD BE!!!
