Anyone play one of these yet?
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Jag60RWCAR

I can get my hands on a brand new one + hard case for a shade under $800 - but I haven't been able to play one in person yet.

I know it won't be 'twice' as good as the Squier VM Jag.

Thoughts?

The rosewood fingerboard features 22 vintage-style frets and a 7.25" radius.


I beg to differ.

This is what attracted me to it.
More of a 'poor man's AVRI instead of a rich fucker's squier VM...

Except they're price only a tad less than what a AVRI used to go for...

i certainly know they're not for everyone.
But I had one of the 60's strats and the back of the neck felt auh-may-zing.

oh i know, the necks are fantastic.
the pickups are pretty cool

and after six months of playing, it'll look a lot better

shame they aren't nitro finished, but that'd bump the price up a couple grand

interesting.. im sure these will fetch like 650/750 used within the next year or two, in which case i'd bite. 1000 dollars for a "relic'd aka fucked up" guitar doesn't really sit too well with me.

nitro, vintage correct neck/trem placement kinda makes it worth it though, only bummer is for another thousand or two can get you a vintage jaguar.

Huh. If they are nitro, and you like 7.25", sounds worth it to me. AV Jaguars have gotten stupid expensive and I don't see any difference except maybe the electronics and lack of bridge mute. (Edit: Says it has AV pickups Shocked And the knobs are screw-on, meaning it's probably the same as AV. I bet the neck is closer to CIJ though.)

Oh , it's worth it. Nitro, 65 av pickups and with a case that prolly has all the candy.
And Fiesta Red? Very Happy All she needs is tort and it's pretty much perfect.

well hot damn!

I was looking at it on my phone earlier so I must have missed that.


Just did an ebay search, and they are going for $999.99 USD + shipping

none of my local shops have them listed online yet.. but I may have to give them a call early next week, esp as my line of credit is now paid down, and I suddenly have a bunch of guitar credit money available.. (not sure what I would do with that extra cash in my bank every two weeks... buy crappy beer?)

odd, i even have an avri tort jag guard.. I think i got it from Finboy.. or maybe someone else..
haven't used it yet, as both my jags are setup with WRHB in the bridge.. and didn't want to cut up a perfectly good "roseland" guard.

There's no lock on the Trem either. Not too difficult a swap if you want the lock though.
