Japan, 22 frets, 2 single coil pickups Jaguar ...
Bridge also typical, vibrato, the strings do not cross the body.
The settings are many, I will not go, but always in the same vein anyway ... They are very interesting ...
However the bridge is pretty poor ... The strings tend to jump from one groove to another and it's very boring ... maybe with a pulling a little harder ...
I find the handle comfortable, not too big like me surout when we tasted the logs of the Les Paul Studio ... The varnish is thick enough, but the hand slides easily and does not catch it ...

The aacès to acute is more than correct. The neck is quite wide, but average large ...
Ergonomics are good, the guitar is impressive, but not too heavy.
So many settings require some practice before you find the right one, and before you go around all the possibilities ... I think like many on the job, only one or two regularly used ...

Sounds, as numerous as they are, fall in the middle of a register that is unique to Jaguar so ... It comes close to any sound or usual ... However, especially in rhythm, in crunch, or full, it sounds great ... I only use very little micro acute one, as it is true that it is a bit aggressive at times ...
I mainly play rock and this guitar needs to be cravachée ...
Especially, they said, too, but the sustain is almost non-existent ... So the same goes for the solos, it's not super ...
M'enfin is another way to play ...
I found the pickups a bit weak people as I would have liked an output level a little higher ...

It's true that I have recently just a week ... but I will modify with hindsight, if I have other things to mean ...
I love her look ... especially Japanese models finish is very correct in fact, very close to some US mobel certainly ... Mine is red, the head is also painted, a red a little glitter, really very nice ...
I bought by mail order in Germany, I took advantage of a promotion, and is found usually around 700 Euros ... and that's okay as a prize.

This scratching may well be customized, as is sometimes the case with a suitable micro acute ... I think

Edit:

Well, a few months later, I tried to sell it, then I hesitated, and I decided to make changes:
I have not found utility in micro acute origin, except for a few things a little noisy, but still, the microphone is very serious about it, he has a particular grain but its precise and smooth, less than the acute nasal ...
So I put a Duncan SL-59, double simple format, which gives me a peach and some precision, versatility that was missing in the Jag. (Please refer to the notice I posted on this micro for more details ...)
Other changes, the bridge, I replaced an old tune O matic Epiphone 335 ... It's DIY, and I really doubt on the reliability of the assembly, but even with a Looking back it works great ... I have a little gallery with the settings, but I ended up coming to the end ...
It is great agreement, even with intensive use of vibrato!
it's a little tinkering, but if you inflate the original bridge, that's an idea to test ...
Here it is after customization:
