First, I never give 5's. I always leave room for the impossible perfect guitar. I bought this on sale. I was not optimistic, and planned to replace all pickups. I also assumed I would have to pay my Tech for a complete set-up, as with many of my new Fenders.
The guitar arrived with a good set-up. Sweetwater is usually good abut this. The finish is impeccable. As good as my new American Jag. The neck and action are very nice. I owned a '60s era Mustang and bought a newer reissue. I also own several Jags and Jazzmasters. This guitar compares favorably with all. It certainly does not have a traditional Jag sound, but it is versatile. It has a sound between a Strat, a Tele, and Jag. Rock, Blues and almost Surf. Clean is acceptable, but it is best with overdrive. Of course, it is not a metal guitar. I am afraid to change anything. I do not want to lose any of the tone or action. This guitar is unique and excellent. I have not gigged with it yet, but I am sure it will perform well. One of my best Mexican guitars. Better than some of my American Fenders. Good value.
