This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
First off, I would like to start by saying Thank You To ZZounds.com and their Staff for the great assistance both before and after the sale. Superb, Bar None. This is my 5th purchase from ZZounds, And it's because they take care of their customers, and they stand behind the products they sell. Now, As stated above this is my 5th purchase. I bought the Fender Sunburst Classic Player Jaguar Special HH. (MIM). I ordered it on Wednesday, by Friday afternoon it had arrived at my door, and I began unpacking it. (2 Days Total). First, I will say The finish on this guitar is Impeccable, not a blemish or even handling smudge....Perfect, Beautiful, I couldn't ask for better. Upon typical inspection, I found the String action to be too high for my liking, but a couple of minutes and tools, all was acceptable. This guitar came with '10's, So I changed them to 09's, Hmmm, changed them right back to '10's. This Jaguar prefers '10's and it actually feels good with them. The 09's felt too weak for my taste, at least on this guitar. I own and play 3 Strats, 2 Teles, and 2 Les Pauls, they all have 09's, but not this Jaguar......Possibly due to my preferences concerning the neck. (All of my guitars get a fret shave down to "30 thousandths", too low to ever be "dressed" again once the frets wear down.) So please take my comments concerning the "Neck" with a grain of salt (Your mileage may vary YMMV) The neck was straight, Relief was excellent, the frets LEVEL (Nice read more job), no real complaints, The intonation was close (Just a tad off on a couple strings), and much to my surprise...This guitar actually holds tune when using the Tremolo, AND it's not affected when doing string bends (usually when I bend the strings, it will pull the other strings flat, but not the case with this one). So I give the Tremolo System a "5 of 5". The Nut appears to need a slight file in a couple of places for better overall string height, but I've never seen a guitar that didn't benefit from a PRO SET UP.

Upon plugging in the guitar, I had to get used to the controls a little, but I noticed this guitar has an incredible amount of versatility. The Enforcer Humbuckers are quite a surprise in their own right....They are typical Humbuckers with lots of power (Though the Bridge Humbucker seems a little less powerful), but I promise, these are everything they are said to be...Enforcers!! And when split, they are as hot a Single Coil as any Strat out there. I A/B'd them against SD Hot Rails in a Strat, This Jaguar held her own...In Single Coil Mode.....These Enforcer Pickups are no slouch!! Honestly though, as versatile as everyone else claimed this guitar to be.....I could not find a "4th position Strat tone...THE QUACK". Upon further investigation, I noticed that the Humbuckers were installed with the "always on" coil to the outside on both pickups, So I took immediate liberty and flipped them around. Guess What !!?? FYI.....This Jag can sound just like a 4th Position (B+M) Strat!!! She won my heart!!

The most useful feature I found....out of the many many features, was the Coil Splitting Roller Knobs.....Because they actually do just what they claim, they are true BLEND knobs. This Guitar has so many variations in tones, I can't begin to describe just how versatile it really is. I thought that the "Kill Switch" was a waste....until I realized that It is VERY useful, Because You don't have to Unplug, or Touch any knobs when setting the Guitar down....Just flip a switch, and when you come back...All of your settings are as you left them, Very useful feature IMO. The Tremolo has been moved closer to the bridge, so there isn't any need for a BUZZ STOP, and with the NEW Tune-0-matic bridge. It's so easy to quickly set your action and your intonation (I Really like those MAJOR improvements/upgrades).

Ease of Use
Ease of use? Well, Read your little instruction papers concerning the Switches and knobs, and you will find it very easy to use, And You WILL find a tone that fits your attitude, no matter what It Is. A Learning curve??? Maybe a small short lived one... and this guitar is extremely playable. I read others online say how they "Didn't want to put it down".....I finally know the feeling. After playing it and putting it away....I find myself going back to see what else I can do with it. I love playing guitar, but never have I looked so forward to playing A guitar, as I do with this Jaguar. And FYI, I've been playing 49 years, 41 years Pro.

This Jaguar Special HH appears to me to be as solid as any guitar I have ever held. The neck feels "Full" when I hold it, This guitar is not light, but I wouldn't say it's too heavy, But I prefer weight on a guitar...Old School beliefs. But It's not like a Les Paul either. As stated earlier, the Finish is excellent, Just beautiful, and the same for the Chrome, it appears to me to be quality plating on all of the chrome parts. The vintage tuners are excellent, The High Gloss Tinted Neck...Beautiful. The switches feel good as well, not flimsy like some of the less expensive electronics available today.

Is this product worth Zzounds asking price.....upon reading all of the bad publicity online that "MIM" Fender gets hit with....It's not without saying that I was a little skeptical, I even hesitated before my purchase because of the price and the fact that it was a "Mexican Made Fender" instead of American Made. I am so very pleased with my purchase now that I am holding this guitar, I feel like I really made a great decision to buy it at the price offered, and feel that I got a GREAT deal.

Manufacturer Support
I've had no reason to deal with "Fender" concerning this guitar, but I have dealt with them in the past concerning other queries, and they have always been easy and helpful, so I can only presume that I would have quality care again if ever needed.

The Wow Factor
I would rate the appeal of the CP Jaguar Special HH at a "5 of 5". Everyone who has seen this new guitar says it is very "Classy" looking, Not to mention...How great it sounds. My Strats, Teles and Pauls are all wonderful Guitars, But none of them are as "Unique" looking as This Jaguar, And THAT was the MAIN reason for my purchase. Barring the fact that I need to have the Neck worked specifically for my own taste, This Guitar has already shown itself to be Very worthy of the FENDER name. This Jaguar will find itself quite at home on a Country Music Stage as well as a Classic Rock/Alternative/Blues or Surf Venue. I don't play Metal but I have no doubt that she can hold her own in that field too....
