So I just bought 2 Fender Jaguars on evilbay, one American reissue and one Japanese reissue. I've heard good and bad things about both. Why did I buy 2? Because both combined are cheaper than a jem
. No, the real reason is so I could do a side-by-side comparison of them. I know that the best Ibanez guitars come from Japan, but what about Fender? Do you think the American one will wipe the floor with the Japanese one? I know they're slightly differently shaped because the pickguards won't fit each other. Who plays a Jaguar these days anyway? I haven't seen anyone in the mainstream, I know the guitar player from Incubus plays a Jazzmaster. If you've ever listened to the Seymour Duncan soundclips for the Jag pups, the Hot for Jag pups they make sound sick in the bridge with distortion. I'll probably end up getting one of those and a vintage for the neck.
