Greco JG700
I once owned a 2003 Jaguar CIJ and when I saw it I wanted to try it. Greco a Jaguar? Oh well, they did? The first grip, we see immediately that we are dealing with a very good copy. Outside knobs volume and tone circuit "rhythm" that are chrome (and add a delicious side bling), the rest is perfect. The weight is quite light compared to Mexican Player Classic, which is a plus in my opinion.

The fingerboard is rosewood a "round lam" as the original Fender and Japanese. I'll have to measure the radius when I will replace the strings but it seems flatter are Features vintage 7.25 ". Anyway, bends pass without problem all over the neck and vintage-style frets in good condition after 36 years of loyal service.

The sound of the neck pickup on this guitar is monstrous and justifies itself only purchasing such jewelry. Different variations it is used via the "lead" circuit or "rhythm" but on a Fender tube is obtained, the cleans are fabulous. With an overdrive pedal, fantastic crunches would not deny that SRV is obtained. This Jaguar is bad and frankly left me on the c ...

The bridge pickup is more acidic and make her work for rockabilly, surf and rock n roll. I think I'll try one of these pickups jaguar sauce to P90 in the bridge just to see what happens with the neck pickup of origin.

Back home after the test, I did some research on the net and it seems that these Jaguars are extremely rare (only a video on the Tube and 3 or 4 pictures in specialized forums on guitars "offset"). So I'm back up to the shop, and after trying a few other Jaguars (ICJ 93, U.S., ...), the Greco struck me as indispensable. She was also already equipped with a stop so no problem playability regrettable (jump ropes ...) buzz.

According to the serial number, mine dated August 1980. This would be the only year that Greco would have produced Jaguar. It is Candy Apple Red with matching headstock. Some small SOFC reveal the silver underlay but I have not yet tested whether the varnish was nitro or urethane.

If you come across one of these Jaguars, do not think and buy it! Given the limited circulation models on the market, prices can only go up and the more you hesitate, the more you will pay.
