Rating and Reviews: Fender 50th Jaguar Guitar

You'll love how this American-made Jag sets the tremolo plate closer to the bridge. Loaded with high-gain pickups, it spews aggressive, modern alt-rock tone.

Overall: The Jaguar was as expect from Fender, an Anniversary guitar with a fine finish and playability out of the box. I just wished they would of put a Tune o Matic bridge and better pickups. They slacked during those 2 features, making high output pickups with a old bridge, doesnt make sense it either keep it "old school" or modernize. I had to shell out for a Mastery Bridge and some Seymours'. Everything was perfect with mines. I would not change anything on it besides those 2 things I did for preference. My burgundy finish was flawless. The tremolo closer to the bridge was great idea.

Overall: I couldn't be happier with the 50th Anniversary Jaguar in Burgundy Mist Metallic. Well, it needed a setup, but aside from that the finish and sound were absolutely stunning! The case, on the other hand, came with a busted latch. Seeing that it shipped from New Jersey to Niagara Falls NY, I would've expected that it would be handled with better care. I notified Zzounds that the case had a busted latch but they haven't replied to my concern. Hopefully they will read this. As for the Jaguar, it really sounds amazing through my vintage '65 Bandmaster and 212 cab. The tone can be a bit too harsh through my Reissue Deluxe Reverb, but it really mellows out through the vintage rig. I love that it came with the addirtional flatwound strings, .11s no less, my favourite gauge! It also came with a really nice strap and a bridge cover, and you gotta love the 50th anniversary neck plate. Stunning color, gets quite a few compliments, and dang, does it ever look cool with Tortoise shell. Stays in tune surprisingly well. Nut and frest all finished superbly. I alos like the tremolo closer to the bridge, it does seem to keep the strings from popping out of the saddles, which I can say is a bit of a pain in the a** on my Jazzmaster. You still get quite a bit of rattle and strange string chiming frequencies behind the bridge, which I really like, reminiscent of sitar tones, but easily goes unnoticed by bandmates. I got a great deal on this guitar, but the regular price does seem a bit high, though for Burgundy Mist, the awesome case (despite my busted latch) and all of the case candy and the awesome 50th Anniversary neck plate, I couldn't be happier with this awesome purchase.
