Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster & Jaguar: The Test

Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster & Jaguar: The Test

The Parable of the Jazzmaster and the Jaguar In the beginning, Leo created the Telecaster. Keith and Bruce were happy. On the second day, Leo created the Stratocaster. Jimi and Eric were in ecstasy. On the following days, Leo created the Jazzmaster and the Jaguar, which, although intended for jazz, found followers within the surf music scene of the 60s and the rock music scene of the 90s. Today we'll be testing the 2008 edition of these mythical guitars ... Read more…

My question for Fender is this - why are you just putting this guitar out in 2011? People have been routing humbuckers into old Jaguars regularly since at least the 70s, and many very prominent rock stars were playing humbucker-equipped Jags starting in the early 1990s. It was a shame, because these rock stars took old, valuable vintage instruments, and hacked them up, creating what to them would be a perfect, usable guitar. Fender could have cornered a serious market in 1992 if they'd have just put this out then.

This Jaguar plays just like an old Jag, and looks just like an old Jag. However, with the addition of some decent humbuckers, this guitar is now infinitely more usable than an old Jag for most styles of music, since the pickups have more power and don't hum when a load of distortion is used. The pickups have decent clarity, good power, and the guitar sustains for a significant amount of time. The tremolo system seems to work better than the older Jag trems - I remember them being a struggle to keep in tune, and this guitar is quite good at staying in tune.

Playability is quite nice on it, with a shorter scale length and great neck. The guitar just begs to have big stretch chords played on it, and I was happy to oblige. Over all, this is a very nice instrument, and I'm still baffled as to why Fender didn't make this years ago.

Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH
- Manufactured in Mexico
- 22 Frets, 2 Enforcer Humbucking Pickups (Neck & Bridge) Pickups
- Fender Adjusto-Matic Bridge with Vintage Style Floating Tremolo Tailpiece (+ Lock Button)
- Upper knob: "kill switch" (he cuts all the sound of the guitar but do not allow to imitate Tom Morello)
Wheels above: dual single-coil transition.
Use the buttons below: slecteurs handle microphones and / or easel and the last, more or moin gives consistency to the sound.

- The handle is very pleasant, fine and the image of the guitars of this type (Jazzmaster, mustang etc ...)
- The access to acute is easy even though I knew better.
- Not too heavy, I'm in love with this form, both for the look for balance. If not in terms of ergonomics, the fact that there are 2 killswitch can play tricks.
- To get a good sound, so it is very versatile everyone can find his account.

- I play Stonerock and both say that it is perfect for this register.
- I play a 40w bluesdeville saturations and as I combined two TS9 and a RAT.
- The sound of ... I would say the "ron ron" as I like is bold but clean (rf Song for the Deaf QOTSA.).
- What I prefer is what powerful but not too feutr and characteristic Fender, mastered by the two humbuckers.

- I have this guitar for 3 Months.
- +: I do not know what to choose, I'd rather the look, the handle, the sound ...
-: The 2 Killswitch
- I have a lot of test models, especially the semi-boxes around 1000 and the microphones never liked.
- The report qualitprix is ​​correct knowing that I have a Japanese Jazzmaster less good quality buy the same price there 5 years.
- I would do this choice without worry.

Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH
Well, it is only a few days that I use, that I experienced. But every day brings me very good surprises! I have not tried many models before buying it, it's a shot my heart I have bought. Already the look of the Jaguar is really special, I prefer the Stratocaster or Telecaster kind. But this remains only a taste. What I especially appreciate about this model (even if it's Made in Mexico), it is really the finish and quality of the body and sleeves: perfect! Normal, considering the price of nine (950 euros ...). And besides quality microphones: really great! I also love my guitar directly to give color to my sound since there are a lot of settings available directly on the body like the fact that you can go from simple microphones (sound nickels clean, approaching the sound of a Stratocaster) twice (warm, well rounded, which can be enjoyed as more Bluesmen "Grunge"). Three mic positions, a low pass filter ... In short, a sound all its own and will suit many people, I think!

Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH
How long have you use it?

I bought 2 years ago, I used this guitar there. After trying in the store is its appearance, its small to me screaming more. HH version can be halfway between a vintage sound and a more modern and more rounded.
The pickups are good qualities! Their sound to me more immediately, the neck pickup to a bass sound distortion and round, slamming into clean. The bridge pickup is loud, however, lacked precision for my taste.

What is so special that you like most and least?

Appearance, I'm a fan of Nirvana but I wanted to be on not to buy a guitar just for its looks. The special feature of this guitar and its very malleable, since there are many buttons, you can pass the microphones single, double, were the three mic positions, a low pass filter (boost the bass slightly). Despite all this, keep the guitar sound a little vintage of her own.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I owned a Cort Z42 Zenox before that. And I tried several guitars in the store before turning my choice to the Jaguar HH classic player who is very versatile.

How would you rate the quality / price?

At the same price, I found better guitars but this guitar is far from bad! The price / quality ratio is correct. In two year's use, I did do that once set, the input jack is slightly unscrewed and I had no problem with electronics.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Maybe, I found other guitars cheaper and better for my taste, but the jaguar in his inimitable this still a roaring guitar, it is aptly named.
