Mellow sounding Fender

Fender Blacktop Jaguar HHPublished on 06/07/11 at 19:13
This is part of Fenders new line called the Blacktop series. All of the guitars in the Blacktop Series feature Dual Alnico humbucking pickups. All of the guitars have a warmer sound than their single coil counterparts. This guitar is the Jaguar based Blacktop model. The Jaguar was originally designed as a Jazzmaster variant with a shorter scale neck. They were designed as improvements on the Stratocaster design but they never reached the popularity the Stratocaster did. The original guitars featured a strange tremolo system Leo Fender designed.

This is part of Fenders new line called the Blacktop series. All of the guitars in the Blacktop Series feature Dual Alnico humbucking pickups. All of the guitars have a warmer sound than their single coil counterparts. This guitar is the Jaguar based Blacktop model. The Jaguar was originally designed as a Jazzmaster variant with a shorter scale neck. They were designed as improvements on the Stratocaster design but they never reached the popularity the Stratocaster did. The original guitars featured a strange tremolo system Leo Fender designed. Leo Fender believed that this new design was superior to previous designs since the bridge actually moved backwards and forwards along with the strings during tremolo use, thereby maintaining proper intonation even under duress, and preventing strings from binding. This floating bridge concept was also later used on the Fender Mustang. The floating tremolo mechanism also features a built-in tremolo lock, which helped the player preserve the guitar's tuning in the event of a string breakage and easing removal of the tremolo arm. This design was very complicated and was one reason these guitars never became popular. This Blacktop model features an alder body with a Gibson style Tune-o-matic bridge. It has the tradtional 24 inch scale neck with a large 70s style headstock. The neck has 22 medium jumbo frets and a modern 9.5 radius fretboard. With this flatter fretboard you can get a lower action than you could on any vintage Jaguar. It has single volume and tone knobs and has a 3 way toggle switch pickup selector that moves left to right instead of up and down. Due to the shorter scale length and humbucking pickups this guitar sounds very mellow compared to a normal Fender guitar. The sound would be good for jazz and blues. Because of the short scale it does not take to lower tunings well. The short scale already provides a looser string tension so when you tune down the tension becomes almost unusably loose. I think Fenders Blacktop series is very cool. I prefer humbuckers when I play but I love all of the Fender designs. So with these guitars you can get harder sounds on the classic Fender designs.

My opinion:

I had seen on this guitar for some time and recently I bought used for 250 €

I tried lots of guitars, and this is obviously not the best I've tested, but for less than 600 € new one has a well finished guitar very well made, a PERFECT round (in all cases my hand), short SAR level violin.

At the sound, I was surprised by the bridge pickup that sounds wickedly good little go from blues to big sound. A pretty vintage but powerful and versatile sound. For the neck pickup is not the thunderbolt, I find overloaded bass, but good, not dégeu anyway. The clean sound is also good without being exceptional, again preference for pickup.
In short, the sound is good without being exceptional and damn versatile.

The big highlight for me is the violin, it's a good guitar with good mechanical, a good bridge and a perfect inning. Sound level, I think the upgrade with a pair of Seymour sh2-sh4 short term. I put my mind to day!
So we end up with not very expensive for a good quality guitar that damn worth it!

The price / quality ratio is excellent and I do it again this choice without hesitation!
