Fender Jaguar classic player HH (it's all about the HH )

Got this guitar almost 2 years ago now and its pretty much perfect for the stuff I do, it Holds tuning really well and lives its life in standard/drop D and occasionally to drop A for 'attempting' CE Got a great neck with some nice neck figuring all the way along the top the necks a bit chunkier than strats I've played but I find it much comfier probably because I came from using a 'dot' for about 2 years before. The stock humbucker pickups are suprisingly hot and handle distortion and cleans great especially when you split them, hopefully at some stage though im going to upgrade to a mbk2 set or something similiar.

With the electronics you either love them or hate them! the 3 small switches for selecting pickups and applying a 'boost' are quirky and pretty fiddly to change quickly, but it doesn't bother me too much because I hardly change out of the bridge position haha! Its got a normal 'gibson' style tunomatic bridge instead of the original jag bridges which are well known for being pretty rubbish so that helps massively with the tuning stability. The trem is..lets say 'different', it holds tuning great even when you go mental on it however it seems delicate? within a week of getting it I had to take it back and have it fixed, because whilst screwing the trem arm into the socket thing it sort of...fell apart Turns out apparently they have a limit and I might have passed it without realising I rarely use the trem anyway so I usually just keep the trem locked down now

So overall my favourite guitar, its quirky and fun to play, love the olympic white finish, love the sound, great neck...Well done Fender, you did well

Niiiice, I think I know what you mean about the tailpiece (or whatever it's called) on the jaguar, assuming it's the same as what's on the jazzmaster. I've had that happen with mine twice, and I've had to take it apart both times to sort it out. I just keep it locked as well.

Haha yeah! the guy at andertons who fixed it said that the jazz/jag trems haven't really advanced in design much over time and that the vintage ones used bike spring parts?
