Fender Modern Player Marauder & Jaguar Review

Modern Players Like No Others This time, Fender comes from an unexpected direction! The Fender Modern Player series includes four different guitars (Marauder, Jaguar, Telecaster Plus, Thinline Deluxe) and three different bass guitars (Jazz Bass, Telecaster, Jaguar), while trying to distinguish itself from the countless Standard Stratocaster and Telecasters variations available either as reissue or special versions (with different neck width, wood type or pickups combination).

Fender Modern Player Jaguar
I dont know what Fender was thinking when they came out with this guitar but I like it. This is the Fender Modern Player Jaguar. This is a new guitar from Fender and it looks to simplify the old Jaguar design and make it a straight rock machine. The old Jaguar came out in the early 60s trying to be the classy version of the Stratocaster. It had crazy controls all over it for phase switching and whatnot. It also had a crazy tremolo on it. Not many people liked it and it never caught on as well as the Stratocaster. There have been many variations on the shape and this Modern Player guitar is the latest I think. It gets rid of everything that people did not like and simplifies it. It has a mahogany body with a bolt on maple neck with the big 70s headstock on it. The headstock script looks pretty silly. It looks like a little kid wrote it. The neck has a rosewood fretboard with 21 frets. It has a standard scale neck so the body looks kind of small compared to the rest of the guitar because the Jaguar was meant to have a short scale neck on it. Instead of the silly Jaguar tremolo they threw on a simple tune-o-matic which is great. There are no crazy phase switches on the guitar. The controls are just a master volume and master tone. The pickups are a set of growling P90s. P90s are some of the best pickups for rock and roll playing. P90s work well with a bit of overdrive and get you a classic overdriven sound. I think they do better with drive than low output humbuckers. You get the body of a humbucker with the high end bite of a single coil. The body keeps it from sounding thin like some single coils do with gain but the high end bite gives it a nice grind and clarity with playing with the gain. This guitar is a really good value. In my shop its priced at only around 400 dollars. Thats pretty good for a Fender. You cant get many Epiphones for that. With this guitar you get tons of tone and playability without any of the hassle. There are no tremolos to go out of tune or springs to adjust. Its just straight rock and roll P90 tone.

I use it for a few days, but I'm already totally hooked. I fell for this guitar mainly for its looks: the jaguar shape, dark body unvarnished. It complements my collection which has fifteen rooms now (US strat, tele, Martin etc ...).
We must always begin with the setting as the handle (shares and jumpers), the factory setting is systematically reviewing, this is not related to the Chinese origin of this guitar, it is also the case on US guitars more 2000 €!

First observation, this guitar is very well finished, very neat, nothing is sticking, no imperfection. the varnish of the handle is great, frets are very well placed. The body color is really beautiful, identical to the pictures on the net (I had read that it could be much darker). The fittings are impeccable too, so aesthetically and finishes, nothing to say, the quality is there!

From the first notes, I was impressed, the MP90 has a very high level of output compared to FAT50 my Strat, this guitar sends heavy, while offering a round and well defined. The clean is shiny, less crystalline than a strat however. The crunch are perfect, perfectly Assayable to pick, you type it crunch, fondled and it swells, very nice. The large distortion does not scare him either, it really sounds nickel. By playing with different mic positions, it has a wide range of sounds, all very interesting.

Mechanical take the deal, but they seem a little light anyway, probably to be replaced in the near future.

In summary this guitar has nothing to envy to a US fender, I know this will make the purists scream, but it's a reality. Finishing, comfort, sound, everything is there. Of all my guitars, this is probably the one that offers the best price / quality ratio, you can go there with eyes closed, less than 300 €, you will make a great deal! I'm already squinting on other models in the range modern player!

A month and I do spend more. Great violin for the Chinese but the Chinese still Fender.
Solid body and beautiful mahogany weighs his weight so we forget the straps to the con and strapslock live.
The handle is a treat once set because neither the store or factory has been able to do something clean. Harmonics are easy to fix but we forget to mount the fender as it is not a domed table.
The tuners are ... what they are and it is difficult to change without re-alaiser lights before.
correct freight properly crimped.
The big plus of this shovel, except mahogany, these are the two P-90 which provide a very interesting overall warmth and definition. Ceusse and for those who do not yet know the P-90, the principle is very simple: you tickle, it squeaks, you step inside, it bellows. Of shots, we work very subtle whatever the microphone used.
The electronics is more than drinking and it lacks a capacity / resitance bridge volume to increase the versatility of the beautiful. Attention to nail however, it is fragile and find a cover can be complicated given its stretched shape which makes it a great guitar malgrès his standard pitch.
One last thing: Micro are ultra sensitive to magnetic fields and other pests, so it hums without judgment, the good idea is to opt for P-90 stacked to cancel snoring but beware ratings depth, there's a some wood to do but nothing nasty.
