    Nice Guitar!

    I've Had This Vintage Modified Jaguar Now For 2 Months And It Plays And Sounds Great. I Was Blown Away By The Candy Apple Red Color Really Looks Good. I Play It Thru My Fender Mustang ll Amp And I Get That Surf Ventures Sound. With All The Switches On It You Get At Least 9 Different Sounds. I've Been Playing For 45 Years And I Plan On Keeping This One. Nice Guitar.

    Fender has done it this time fantastic guitar little tip for you boys who have Fenders with two channels Deluxe Reverb Twin Reverb you can reroute reverb Tank and get a soaking wet sound similar to a original 63 Reverb Unit you can use normal channel controls to set your depth and dwell of your reverb setting as I said this model as well as the Jazzmaster are Super guitars by from Sweetwater and you wont go wrong believe me

    Squier V.M Jaguar

    I've been playing guitar since the mid 80's and I think I've only owned one Squier. A Strat when I was in high school. For the most part I've owned MIM's and a couple Amercian Strats. (One Custom Shop) and one MIM Telecaster. I've had my eye on a Jaguar or Jazzmaster now for the past year. Really love the sound and the style. I picked up a few of the Squiers at Guitar Center, and surprisingly, Squier Jaguars seem to be a little better quality then most of the Squier Strats,..Tele's I've played. Anyway, I ordered a Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar in sea foam green. As soon as I took it our of the box I was totally surprised by what a solid instrument it was. The action and playability is great! The versatility is nice and the tone seems to be everything I need. I play through a Blues Deluxe and overall this thing sounds great. I totally have no regrets , although I don't see myself buying another Squier, I have to admit The Jaguar not only looks and feels good, but tone wise I was pleasantly surprised by it's quality . Stays in tune fairly well and I didn't even have to take it in for a set-up/adjustment... So, for $300... I have a fun, great sounding guitar~

    quite nice

    a really nice guitar for the money. some of the tone is not what I would like but I think do to the strings. Play a lot of Jazz and the rhythm side has a nice mellow sound for it. The lead side has a bit of a tinny sound to my ear, but again could be the strings. It seems to be well made and would make a great gig guitar so you can leave the expensive ones at home. For the price, can't beat this one.

    Playing for 40 years, in a band currently

    Great sound, limited real gigging use...

    Great sound that is really pretty unique with the pickups, pickup combinations and the weird bridge-to-tailpiece string length. The neck is OK, I found that mine has needed trussrod adjustments quite often and it still hasn't yet settled down. The weight of the guitar is a little odd, mine weighs almost nine pounds.
    The Achilles heal of the guitar is the bridge. I knew this before I bought it as I read up on all Jaguars beforehand. The bridge however really is an issue. You can work with but it is somewhat of a constant pain in the butt to keep it stable. Additionally, there were some slight mods I had to do on my bridge to keep the strings from rubbing against the individual saddle adjustment screws, the bridge also floats back and forth somewhat if you are not careful due to the string angle and lesser amount of pressure from the strings keeping it in place. If you play a fairly aggressive rock song during a session with your band you'll probably find, like me that tuning up after every song is a must. The guitar came with 9's on it - which is really not right, felt like spaghetti noodles and tuning issues were even worse. With the scale of this guitar you can easily use 10's minimum and 11's are comfortable and give a bigger sound as well.
    I have many guitars and for the $ you get a great instrument. Just be ready to maybe have to dink around with the bridge. I would not use this as my main stage guitar for that primary reason. I give it 5 for what you get for $...
