Looks like a Squier Jagmaster. They are not at all uncommon. There have been a few different versions, to my not very well trained eye, this one looks like a Chinese one from 2000-2005? I have one, it was my main guitar as a teenager. I loved it.

I think mine was £175 new, so that seems a bit steep, but hey, they might be vintage now.

Need to make a decision..

Maybe just buy the HarleyBenton Carbonita, eh.

Have single coil and have P90s guitar really would fancy an nice Filtertron one.
Its just the consumer talking inside of me.

Thanks for the info, atleast its an real nice 'vintage' Squier !
Merry Christmas :--)

Is there any easy way of telling which version it is though? Did the Vistas have glossy necks or smaller headstocks or anything?

I think that's a Chinese version, the Japanese ones had 22 frets from what I remember.

Vistas had the Jaguar headstock shape and vintage style tuners too, as well as the knobs positioned Jazzmaster style on the pickguard. The cheaper Squiers had a CBS Strat headstock with chunky modern tuners, and the knobs positioned where they are on a Jag's control plate.

Pardon me anix

They must have voted down Jazzuar for a name during R&D. Sad moment.

The middle version - early to mid 2000s - had the full scale necks. I have a 2000 Silver Sparkle model. It’s a decent guitar. Probably worth about $200 to $250 US.

"Jazz-waar" sounds goooood, but it'd end up being called "jazz-u-wer" over here, which sounds like some kind of alternative to the word "wanker"

I think Jazzocaster would have been a better name.

Woah, I didn't know this, it looks SO much better; I wonder why they changed it? Maybe Vistas were using existing JM pickguard stocks?

Wouldn't that name work best for the 25.5" Jagmasters?

I wonder if HNB still has my Vista Jagmaster. It was a nice CAR model. Found it at Sam Ash on Sunset Blvd for $199 back in 2015. They clearly had it confused with one of the newer Chinese models. I think that would be definitely on my "regret I sold it" list Sad
