fender has made a plethora of different guitars and guitar body shapes. One of the most famous but unusual guitar shapes is the Fender Jaguar. This is a guitar shape that takes on some inspiration from the Fender Strat shape but has a funky twist of shape to it. It also has a few extra features and switches that take a normal Fender Strat to the next level. These guitars are very famous for surf music player's They have a a tone that is conducive to that style of music and the string damping device is for those guys pretty much exclusively.

The tone of this guitar is very fender and very Fender Strat but it sounds like a disobedient step child of the Fender Strat. The tone is cool and somewhat unique. The extra switches I have never really gotten into but the body shape itself lends itself to a certain sound. I like the sound of it but it doesn't blend with all kinds of music like a Fender Strat or Gibson Les Paul would do. those guitars have a certain general and unique sound to them but a sound that can go from genre to genre without and complication. The sound of this guitar is unmistakable but also not something I would play for a cover band or something I would feel has an all inclusive musical sound.

I would recommedn this guitar to someone who wants to mix things up sound wise in his or her guitar variety. This is a guitar with a very unique tone and something that either you like or you don't like. I don't find these guitars to be an everyday or every man's guitar. It is more of a specialty guitar that has its won sound and own vibe going on. It is a cool sound and nothing that I dislike personally but not something that would be an everyday sound for me. I wouldn't play a Rickenbacker or a Gretsch as an everyday guitar either. those guitars have a great unique sound to them as well but not an everyday and all musical encompassing guitars either.
