Correction: the HH Special is fitted with the wretched Dragsters (That's the one you tried at Steve's)
Classic Player Jaguar HH are fitted with Enforcers about which, I know nothing.
Ask Aen or that dude who's avatar is Teh Kursdtx. I think they're okay.

hmmm, well hopefully I can find a store that has a classic player HH jaguar so I can try it out.

Just out of curiousity do you know how hard it is to negotiate prices with the salesmen at steves and italmelodie?
and can you negotiate at all at Archambault?

How much do you want for it? wtf is buckle rash?

I called archambault up like 2 weeks ago and they told me they had 0 jags & mustangs in all their stores, the dude could have just been an ass and lie to me though.


Buckle rash is damage to the finish on the back of a guitar caused by friction against the player's belt buckle. Cosmetically, the guitar is a natural "relic". But it plays like absolute butter. Sounds killer, too. I'm more into single coil Fenders these days, which is why I want to sell it. I forgot to mention before that it comes with the OG hardshell case, and has strap locks installed. Yours for $1000. You're welcome to come by and try it out.

Hmmm, I don't think I'll get it just cause I'm not exactly sure if I wanna go and have a fight with my mom about buying a used guitar for 1 grand

Astro & lateral, do either of you have any experience at dealing with salesmen at steve's & italmelodie? if so what would be the best way to go about trying to get them to lower the price?

and can you negotiate the price at Archambault?

Show your mom what 1977 Les Paul standards go for on ebay (completed items search). They sell for $1500+ in this condition. Or just lie and say you bought it for $200. Problem solved.

Almost all the gear I've ever bought has been used. I bought an $800 bass preamp at Steve's in the early 90's, the only other new stuff I've bought has been stuff like strings, strap locks, or other little bits and pieces, so to be honest I have no idea how easy it is to negotiate with these stores. I would imagine that the best way to go would be to find out which one has the lowest price, then see if one of the other stores will beat it, or offer other goodies (like a hard shell case) to sweeten the deal.

Get a classic player Jaguar or Jazzmaster. They're $700 new IIRC.


word. these new options are awesome. the humbucker versions will give you even more options, too.


I've called every guitar store that i know of in Montreal. None have ANY shortscales, besides the JAguar HH (jap one) and I didn't like it very much.


replace the pickups. that neck is worth it.

She won't care, she'll let me do what I want with my money, but more than likely it'll cause an argument. I'll try to see how she'll react to the idea :p

yeah neither Archambault (the one near berri) or steve's have mustangs, and neither have any jags besides the CIJ ones (archambault has the baritone, and steve's has the HH)
