tjon901's review"Like the Fender Blacktop but with the Traditional Jaguar Switching"

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
The Special Edition Jaguar HH is a mix between the traditional Jaguar model and the Jaguar 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 high stress, and preventing strings from binding. This design was very complicated and was one reason these guitars never became popular. This model gets rid of that crazy bridge setup and just has a Tune-o-matic setup like the Blacktop. It has an alder body with a maple bolt on neck. The neck has a rosewood fretboard with a vintage radius on it and 22 frets. It has the traditional Jaguar 24 inch neck to make the tone even mellower. It also has dual humbuckers like the Blacktop but like the original Jaguar it keeps the unique control setup with Lead and Rhythm citcuits and the individual on off switches for each pickup. These extra switches and controls give the guitar a unique tonal pallete. The nartual tone of the guitar is mellower than a normal Jaguar thanks to the humbucking pickups. Each pickup has a switch that can change the tone from a Rhythm tone to a Lead tone. The neck pickup on the rhythem setting gives a super mellow sound while switching it to the lead setting gives you a bit more high end bite to cut through. The neck in its rhythm setting is perfect for a smooth jazzy tone. The guitar also has a high pass filter. This cuts the low end and gives you a super jangly sound that can really cut through. These extra settings give the guitar much more tonal varieties that you would have heard in music back in the day. Back then switches like these were used a lot to help the guitar cut through a thick mix recorded with primitive equipment. Nowadays this just is just vestigial. It will connect you to the vintage age of guitar playing. If you are looking for a Fender Jaguar with humbuckers but with all the traditional Jaguar features the Limited Edition HH is a good option. If you are just looking for a Jaguar with humbuckers and do not need the traditional switching a Blacktop Jaguar is perfect for you.

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
Well-known model, created by the firm of Leo at the time they sought a more class, was born Jazzmaster and the Jaguar ... After some turpitude, models have become cult ....
Hands, I have a special model: Version Special HH (sic) ... So what's good there?

Configuration:
Well, we're dealing with a classic Jaguar shape, short handle, key reported, the curvature of the Jag and .... no vibrato! And yes, my little lady that was removed was rotten ... Look at microphones, a pair of double ... Fender???? And unlike Blacktops, there is a routing wholes in ways similar to Jag "basic", so beautiful sonic possibilities. Besides this avalanche of switches makes me think of the 50s Italian guitars, glitter paint less of course ....

Overall look and handling:
As the original smelled good surf music, as here, the black dress, invites many other things ... Small finishing details annoying: The decal on the head is very cheap, as the chrome knobs, switches the plastic is very poor and that of the shield. In addition, being single-ply black .... is tristou. In short sobiété too ... kills sobriety!
By taking in hand .... ouch! It weighs! it almost looks like a Les Paul. This is also the question of whether the firm Leo has not ogled the side of Kalamazoo designing this scoop: press reported a body in real wood tree hanging, two doubles and a short handle (very short way!).
Let us see if the sustain is lespaulesque! Nope, it vibrates, but no more than that. on the other hand, level ergonomics, well balanced head and grater stays in place, either Thurs standing or sitting (lying?). The handle fits nicely in pogne and invites riff. And yes, in my opinion, shreddeux, go your way!

Connected?
Once assimilated the routing is confusing branch tube amp running off ...
Clearly, its cool but dry circuit lead, not garish usual Fender (lens forgiveness), in rhythm, welcome to the velvet, it's almost syrupy ... But nice all the same! Lead found in a good aggressive edge ... It promises to distortion!
Neither one nor two, I switched the channel Tube Screamer my head and there TSA, happiness, enjoyment etc etc ... Sounds mordants, saturation beautiful, rich bridge pickup can be a bit too rich for that matter. Rhythm Circuit, good softness.
In my opinion it is between drought and velvety Fender Gibson. Lack a bit of sustain, but perfect for typing in the pop, rock great big task and within the psyche rock air, but not too ...
In short punchy pickups, ill-bred, but a bit too clean (it grassouille not enough for my taste) ... In short it smells soap and not enough pussy ...
Note, however: a handle particular, the frets are very close to the bottom of the inning, then train and I have a set of strings a little light, too short flexible, it will have a good game of stick heavy bottom to draw the quintessence ...

In summary:
When Fender made anything other than strats .... well they are able to do something versatile, full of charm which can ogle the side punk / grunge / hard / pop and jazz too silky ... A different model and endearing ...

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
Made in Japan ^ ^
22 frets / / 2 Special Design MIJ Dragster Humbucking
Adjustomatic therefore fixed bridge (over vibrato jaguar, phew!)
Ct rglages, you can choose:
The mode to "lead" and then select the neck pickup, bridge pickup, both or none (which is not used much ^ ^) there is a last selector to put the mics in SERIES or parallel (prev minimal reference)
Then we find a volume knob and a tone for mode "lead" and the same thing for the mode "blues" (which mainly uses the neck pickup and gives her a hot trs, may be too) .

The handle is beautiful, varnished, it glides perfectly, Access in acute trs is good without being excellent.
The shape of this guitar is beautiful, I loved the jaguar: D
Many find it is too heavy, I wonder o they all seek, it is quite lgre.
Easily obtained a good sound trs.

I play mostly rock, punk and grunge, I tend occasionally tickle the Hard Rock and why it is perfect. And not just for this, it is versatile trs.
I possde an H & K edition blue 60 and some effects (DS-1, etc ...)
You can get a number of his allucinant!
I think the bridge pickup is too "flat" and the neck pickup too hot but gots a question, I prvois to replace them with Seymour Duncan (SH2N in SH4 JB in the neck and bridge)

I use it for about 8 months.
I love its shape trs rock, and also the sound!
Before I had a small Whale low end of the test but I Ibanez, and Gibson, etc. and I must say that this is the Jaguar that emerges.
The report qualitprix is ​​excellent, I have 650 russi intermdiaire the German sites (Thomann, MusicStore ... but I think it has increased and for that price it was almost a guitar pros, with new pickups it becomes very easy.
I would do without this choice largely hsiter a second, this guitar is a real gem!

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
For specifications, everything has been said before, some details:
-The fact that the violin is Japanese means: Gotoh tailpiece and bridge: design solid (adjustomatic), it remains unreliable in the acute: with the standard settings there is a problem of accuracy in the acute, however, minor.
"It is a 22 frets, like most fender modern double coils are also DSE and fender work quite well, yet I see a lack of" potato "who is insisting (after two years with the scraper, it becomes downright Song)
-For electronics, nothing changed from the usual jaguars (the switch series / parallel, however, outlived its usefulness, except with a big distortion)
-C of the handle is maple (veneer), rosewood fingerboard, this scraper is easy to play

-Handle is a wonder, everything has been said
-The easy access to acute ... yes but it's not a reason to be happy, indeed Lecart fret is acute in tighter than a Start or tele, beginners can just gallery at the beginning but over time ...
Platform: it is well designed, it is well balanced, it holds its own without mettreles hands with just the strap, too heavy for its class.
Without this large-scratching: sustain, it is a jaguar and has kept its short scale designed for the little sisters rock surfing, slamming his most (by far one would a telecaster) and it takes some getting used

It is quite possible to play any directories on this guitar, but it has a big lack of cautions personnalité.Je the metalheads: not enough power for you and the handle is hardly ready to taping! For lovers punk, this soft guitar bcp is already more interesting.
"I use a Hiwatt Custom 100 with baffle HIWATT 4X12''fades, all full of jai esffet but that does not concern us here, I just want to note that with a distortion guitar electro harmonix bigmuff reacts strangely ...
-The skyscraper has an ease requirements for serious (it has a certain efficiency with rhythmic blues / bossa / jazz) with the key crystalline fender, but with all the other microphones sonoritée original post, due to the lack of sustain seem " breathless! "

"I use this scratching for two years and she is beautiful, fun to play but soon the limitée.je recommend for those who make a first purchase or looking for a versatile guitar.
-Value / price: flight! € 800 generally nine, she deserves an award in line with the mustang, more realistic.
-The usual problems of jaguars have been fixed: the guide rope does not move, the crazy vibrato was fired ... I wanted a new Jaguar when I bought it.

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
Japan, alder body
22 frets, 2 humbuckers pickups special design MIJ Dragster
Adjustomatic easel
Full of rglages but simply put a very hot pace circuit (just neck pickup), and lead (using both).
Channel profile c, maple, rosewood fingerboard

Channel super enjoyable, not too big, not too thin nickel coatings
It's a jaguar therefore no access to acute problem
Unlike what I've read, it is a skyscraper of normal weight. Personally I dteste heavy guitars (Gibson gender) and it is perfect.
Getting a good sound? Just play. First select the channel, the sound quality is immdiate. After tonalities is refined with the slecteurs microphones and phase opposition.

I play in a rock record and it's really perfect. Ideal also for blues, pop, etc ... Mtalleux, I think it will not be for you because it's not a guitar solos dstine 12 ratings per second.
I plugged in a fender hot rod deluxe with a good clear sound fender and it is happiness !! I add a good vintage distortion and is ecstasy.
All sonorits have their reasons, but I prefer be the lead channel, with two microphones In parallel and Tone 5-6

This is a purchase trsrcent but time is irrelevant when it's a hsitoire love is all about passion. No Seriously, I can no longer do without it ... and yet I was full of guitars (strat and tl US, mustang, Jagmaster and even a Gibson Flying V).
Goodies: the look, sound, ergonomics, weight, handle ...
Cons: I do not see that from her book with a tui auait t even better
At 900 euros, I think is well worth a lot of guitars in Superior good price, but it's a sound typ so try before !!!
If I were stolen, first I found the guy, I rcupre my guitar and I'll get a sharp scraper to type with, just for the principle as an instrument like that, it's so a favorite that was not done. If I do not find, well, I'm in for it too rachte a gun ....

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
Made in Japan, 2 Special Design MIJ Dragster Humbucking pickups for.
22 frets
Adjustomatic easel.
For settings of grouping of several 2-channel indpendants.

The c-shaped handle makes it easy, it slides alone.
Access in acute easy too.
Ergonomics in good shape, for against her is quite heavy.
As for sound, it gets fast enough, for something neutral, then we must look a bit to find a more personal.

She is very versatile, so it should have little prs all styles (j have been attempted in mtal not play in j)
For the neck pickup sounds rather bin for crystal clear sound, bridge pickup for distortion instead.
no sound on this guitar does not bother me.

I have the last two months, I have the decision to replace the cyclone, it suits me perfectly. to make it easy during class. you have to work for a bit but c custom is for heads like guitars. Then the bridge gibson type is for me a better choice than vibrato (like the agreement longer)

I jou several different design and type of guitar, it has the advantages of fender bases without the disadvantages.

The ratio quality price is right.

I do not regret this purchase, on the contrary.

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
I will not rpter, everything t said.

The neck is REALLY good trs, it is certainly good round, but access to the treble is really perfect for my taste, the handle slides well in short trs is enjoyable, really! all mcaniques allow a great range of sonoritbr /> Small BMOL, it is heavy!

Trs diversified and complete thanks to mcaniques varies, it is a pure happy (coupled with the proper hardware. Because of shit amp + guitar = gnial its shit)

Do not hesitate.
j'tais a little reticent but sincerely, I will keep 10 years as a main guitar (I have an esp ec-1000 for the sounds that crash more). it is solid, colors, and both soft

Fender Special Edition Jaguar HH
Updated:

In fact, after several years, I changed the pickups, too poor, in the end. I went on the Seymour Duncan, it doubles the price of the guitar, but now she deposit!

Original:
This is a little Japanese, this guitar. It has 22 frets (I just re-count ...)
Its main feature, if I'm wrong, is that it's one of the few (only) jaguar to be equipped with 2 Humbucker ... hence the name ... HH
the bridge is the same type as the Les Paul, the small concern is that when I let myself go, I tend sometimes to the E string out of bed ... it's embarrassing but it happens less now than the beginning.
As for settings, there are a bunch a priori, but ultimately not that much. This is mainly due to the fact that there are two channels. volume and tone for each channel. plus 2 micro switches and a kind of a high-pass filter.
So, right side, there really is not to say ...

The handle is the highway, a little wider I think than a strat us.
Super easy to play, it is a pleasure she takes in hand after 45 seconds.
For the treble, as it is not cut out for the pure lead, is played only four-legged ...
However, ergonomics is a nickel and found that the faster everything you need where you need it ..

I'm pretty loose rock but not necessarily in that ... and glue.
What is chic with this guitar is that there is way to get very different sounds.
The first channel (using only the neck pickup), offers a warmer, softer, type, jazz.
The second channel is more crystalline, more acute in, especially, of course on the bridge pickup with the phase switch on, there, it pulls on the very tranchantp, too limited in its light.
That said, its clear that much distortion (I only use a Boss DS2), the pannel of sound is interesting and can switch from one genre to another without worry of a simple selector switch ... .

I have this guitar for 4 months and since I do not touch almost over my Strat Us Std, mainly because its one side it offers a less "heard", less current, it is obvious.
One thing is certain and which has greatly influenced my purchase is that this guitar is beautiful. She has a mouth and a group of sick and finish is impeccable ... Frankly, it tears.
The problem is that I had to go to the address in a pro because the factory settings, hello ... harmonics not too tight, the handle to tighten the strings to lower, those little things which happen but now I will not let go.
While all this for an extremely reasonable price, I say it's worth it. Just see how it will age.
So, frankly, a very positive overall opinion ..
