    Fantastic, to me there is nothing more perfect in a guitar. If you want something that the other guys don't have this is it. Its not a strat, tele, les paul, none. It is a jag. & thats what i love about it.
    I've had my jag for almost a year, it is perfect. Seems that some folks find it complex well, its not a strat, or a tele, or a les paul, but lets face it...thats why you are looking at it. But if this is worried you, fear not, it comes with a sweet diagram. I love this guitar, i've had a couple of guitars that do the coil splitting, but no a single one have done it this well. You roll the top rollers to humbucker or single coil, or somewhere inbetween. The bridge is pickup is tough, especially through distortion, to me its everything that i want out of a bridge pickup. The neck pickup is bassy, like most neck pickups, roll it into single coil & it sounds fantastic & the humbucker is just as good. I can get so many sounds out of this guitar, its crazy. Then there is that tone cut switch down at the bottom, by the on-off pickup switches, that is really cool, just to add/take some dynamic to whatever you are playing. Last but not least you have the kill switch up at the top next to the humbucker/single coil rollers, i didn't really think that i would use that very much, but sure as heck i do. When you're getting some good feedback, you can flip it on & off to some really cool stuff, sometimes you want to just make you sound suddenly stop & that volume knob doesn't get there quick enough..haha never fear, kill switch is here.
    Some say its not setup well, the bridge, the neck, action ect.... Personally i loved it. Sure it may not come set to your desired set up....(i suppose fender should apologize for not reading your mind, & knowing exactly what you wanted) You take it & get it setup. The single thing that i would change, if i could change anything.......a roller bridge. The bridge that is on it, is ok, but eventually i'll probably swap for a roller, nothing else. This is my main guitar, i don't play everyday, but everyday that i can, i do. i've gone & played other guitars, but nothing brings as much joy as this sweet flippin' jag.
    Build quality was fantastic, extemely happy to pay some mexican wages, for this bad boy.
    I would buy it again, now given i'm kinda cheap (wife might say to drop the kinda part), when it comes to buying....any & everything. I have a day job, that is not playing music. I play music for fun & enjoyment & because i find music to be the greatest thing ever. That being said, I don't have money to go & blow & buy 87 different guitars, so i make sure that my money is wisely spent. This guitar, is amazing, & doesn't look like all the other strats & teles & les pauls. Its goofy, but that is why its perfect.

    I still haven't decided if I'll send this guitar back yet, mainly because there are a few things very right about it that could go very wrong on another or even another. The things that ARE wrong, I can correct. In order of discovery, the action was way too high, and lowering the bridge all the way down left it still much too high. The bridge studs weren't all the way in, but seating them further in would not yield enough change, and the bottom of the bridge base will have to be ground down about 1/4" on each end, that's a lot and will require a heavy-duty power grinder. I have one and can do that, but shouldn't have to work that hard. The trussrod adjustment screw is completely inaccessible, there is less than 1/8" cut out of the pickguard, so no screwdriver of any kind/size can touch the screw's slots, but worse, the body itself covers more than half the screw. Again, I can remove material to correct the problem, but shouldn't have to. Anyone without my decades of experience & shop tools would have no choice but to return it, but also may not even notice these defects until well after 45 days, then only hopeful of a warranty repair by a luthier, if there is one near them. The tremelo (whammy bar) lock only locks in one direction, you can still bend the thing down (dive bomb), and if a string breaks, it won't do the job intended for it without your (my) fiddling around. That appears to be the design, not a good one. My first brand new guitar I bought for myself was a Jaguar in 1962. It had zero defects. This thing requires work, if I send it back, I might not get a neck as well made as this one's. It's nearly perfect, the fret ends are well dressed, no sharp ends. That's a first on an unbound neck in many years. The next one might not be right. The electronics are great, no noise, works as designed. Another might be noisy. since the two main things I care about are right, I'm still thinking about keeping it. If I send it back, I'll report on the new one. If this review is the only one you see from me, I decided to keep it and make it perfect, myself. What you do as a customer is up to you, MF.com will make it right for you, whatever you do. This, I also have many years of experience with, MusiciansFriend is simply the best!

    Complex Things Break Down - Jaguar

    By Arkansas Boy

    from Next to Oklahoma

    See all my reviews

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

    Just a little hint from a friendly luthier. This guitar is too complex. It took two hours just to study out the wiring diagram to understand it fully. You need a schematic to just learn the controls. The pivoting bridge will really mess with your intonation over time, who knows where it will be each time you pick up this guitar? Also, the string tree is at the butt of the whammy bar mechanism, it cannot help keep your strings in alignment with the fingerboard. So they depend on the little threaded saddles. A good strum can dislodge any or all strings, it's pitiful. Plus with so many electric controls, time will be your enemy. The one in my shop convinced me to recommend everyone stay away from this over-engineered Model by Fender. If it were a car it would be named the Edsel. I think you could modify the setup and toss a bunch of switches, and maybe make a guitar out of it, but why re-engineer it, just buy a Strat or a Tele and be happy. My buddy who has a large bass collection echoed these sentiments on the Jag Bass, just don't do it and you'll have a better day.

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

    Nothing but complaints it seems. Sad really. From all the complaints I've read on line, I am the lucky one. My Jag was delivered ahead of schedule and required only to be tuned. The intonation was on. The action was as low as possible. And it is low! No effort to play. The wiring all works as designed and it sounds great. Very versatile. The sunburst finish is flawless. I think this is only my 3rd or 4th guitar out of the 30 I have purchased that didn't need to be set up. Read reviews and was a bit worried when I ordered. But I know my way around guitars so figured I could fix anything sent my way. Tuned it and smiled all the way to the studio. Take a chance if you've always wanted one. You'll be happy in the long run. Life's full of risk. Deal with it.

    Great guitar... once you fix it

    By zachaction

    from Iowa

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

    I first purchased this guitar from a different online retailer and promptly sent it back. The bridge pickup output was about 1/5th of the neck, and the guitar was missing the protective plastic sheeting over the neck plate (but had a little of the plastic still left under the screws, like someone had torn it off).

    I then ordered this was from musiciansfriend as a replacement. It also had no plastic on the neck plate (but again, some plastic remnants under the screws), but the bridge pickup seemed to work at least. That is, until I noticed that there was NO difference in tone between the neck and bridge. Long story short, I had to completely rewire this guitar. Fender did a TERRIBLE job. One of the pickup wires from the bridge was frayed on the end and only a couple of strands were actually soldered. There was a short in another wire as well.

    In addition, this guitar is very poorly grounded. I ended up using copper tape to shield the entire cavity, and only after grounding to the underside of the pickguard did I get rid of the hum (incidentally, a custom black pickguard looks much better than the tortoise).

    However, once I fixed it all, I can't complain. I love the feel and I love the tone. And this poor review should NOT reflect badly on Musician's Friend. But Fender, come on. Made in Mexico or not, to get back-to-back poorly-wired bridge pickups? And what's up with that missing plastic? And why was the plastic sheet over the pickguard so badly scratched on both guitars?

    I'd say go for it... you can always send it back if you get a bum one.

      I am writing a follow up to a negative review I posted a few weeks ago. I had received a guitar that had a few issues, but Musicians friend resolved the matter quickly and I received my replacement guitar today. I had to set the string height down, and adjust the intonation of each string because it was pretty far off. Once I did, OMG the sound and playability are fantastic. If you don't know how to set up a guitar, then you will want to take this into a shop and they will do it for you. This guitar is worth the hassle. I had to put it down to type this and I'm headed back to it now. I'll be making a video to show off just what this guitar can do.

      Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

      At the moment there are only 3 of these gutars here in Australia in the three tone sunburst and I am proud to say I own one of these well crafted guitars. My favourite feature about the new Classic Player Jaguar HH is the coil blending feature for the pickups. There are something like 9 different sounds on this guitar which is awesome. You can go from humbucker to single coil by rolling the top controls to whatever you like which is amazing and I've never heard of that before. I play a rock style kind of music through an Orange AD30 twin channel head and the sound is incredible with the new Jaguar. I have to say Fender have finally made the guitar I have always wanted and ever since seeing Kurt Cobain play something very similar but heavily modified I am very thankful that this guitar is finally here.

          Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

          I was a bit wary when I ordered this guitar because of some of the other reviews, and now that I have it I can see that it's reasonable what everyone is saying. Once I plugged it in I noticed that the bridge humbucker was stuck in the single coil mode despite moving the roller that would switch it back and forth. That function was half the reason I wanted the guitar so bad. But luckily a certified Fender tech lives near by and had it taken care of in a few days (I'm terrible with a soldering iron).
          The guitar is amazing. The pick ups and the rollers and switches help you create some cool tones. No regrets getting it so far. Just be willing to get some wiring fixed when you buy it.
          Shame on those dudes at Fender for doing such a bad job with the wiring on an otherwise perfectly awesome guitar.

          Works well with finger-style jazz playing. Hardware seems solid and comparable to American Stratocaster in quality. Will have to see about tremelo set up. I think guitar will benefit in sound and playability with heavier strings

          See all my reviews

          Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

          If you need your main guitar to be able to do many different things, this is an excellent choice. It is a great for Strat tones, which shouldn't be surprising, and the humbuckers allow you to jazz it up in the neck and really hit those 70's metal humbucking bridge sounds as well. I can't say enough about the blendable coil-splitting, a feature I haven't seen in any other guitar. Really allows you to develop your own sound. This really is an excellent value, too. I can sometimes get snobby about "Made in _____" stamps myself, and I didn't realize this was MIM until I took it to the counter to pay for it--I'm glad I didn't because I would have prejudiced myself. By that time, I had taken a taste test with: a custom strat, an LP Studio, a PRS McCarty, an ES-335, and ES-336 (pretty rare guitar), and a dual-soap bar Strat. The HH jag not only competed with these guitars, some of which cost 2-4 times as much, but to my shock it actually sounded better to my ear than some of them (recognize that beauty is in the ear of the beholder). I had just come into a chunk of change and was willing to throw down for a McCarty (they are just so damn *pretty*), but it didn't make any sense to do that after playing the jag.Finally, a quick word on the components. Pickups are great. I may experiment with some SDs I have lying around but feel no need. Volume and Tone pots are top-notch; they allow for very gradual fades instead of the sudden in-out of lesser quality parts. Tremelo is great but b/c it doesn't lock, a broken string mid-song means you have to put it down and plug in your backup rather than trying to play through it.I really love this guitar, it has become my main axe (in front of an HH strat I also love and assorted semi-hollows), and I strongly recommend it to any player of many styles. It gets tons of comments from audiences at shows too.By way of background, I split my signal thru a '59 reissue Bassman and a JC-120 (old kind w/o fx loop), running thru a modded Dunlop Crybaby, EH small stone, Fulltone OCD, Plush Pure Gain, and a Hermidia Reverb.

          Better than the American Vintage

          Comments about Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH Electric Guitar:

          I played this guitar today and I was blown away. If I hadn't just bought the Lonestar Strat I would have been walking out with an Olympic White Mexican Jaguar. The variable coil taps give you the option of how much hum you can put up with while playing with gain and wanting a single coil sound. The action and bridge were set up great. The tone cut switch engaged with the neck HB delivers a great Jazz tone through a Fender tube amp. The slide switches are a little slow to change tones while playing rather, they allow changes for different songs. The neck and body were very comfortable, and the guitar was not heavy. While it does not sound like a Strat, Tele or Les Paul, or like the American Vintage Jaguar, it delivers it's own tone and mojo. I want one, and once you try one for yourself, you'll agree!

              This guitar seriously rocks. Great pickups and the numerous selector switches let you dial in any tone you can think of from heavy rock to blues to jazz and R&B. I bought the 3-tone sunburst and it looks great along with the chrome switch plates. The neck feels good and the finish is awesome. This is now my main guitar for gigging and recording, but of couse I will not set my '72 Custom Deluxe Telecaster reissue to the side either. Can't go wrong with this one for sure.

                  I was thrilled to add this guitar to my collection and heart broken to find that there was some kind of wiring problem. The action was pretty high, but I figured I would adjust that. I had to send it back and I am upset because it would have taken 10 minutes to check and make sure all of the pickups worked. The box was open on the inside of the packaging and the pick guard looked like the guitar had been played quite a bit. I think they boxed up a return and sold it as new.

                    I have been playing guitar for about 5 years now and this was my first guitar. I have been in love with this guitar and still love it even after 5 years of playing.

                    I have seen alot of other reviews essentially just talking smack about this guitar.

                    Well, let me tell you. There is nothing wrong with this guitar and in my opinion this is the best guitar fender has made.

                    the fact that this guitar has coil-tapping means that you essentially get 6 guitars in one because of the different combinations of single coil and humbucker you can do.

                    The pickups are absolutely perfect for anything from RHCP to Nirvana and everything in between.

                    Would recommend this guitar to ANYONE. Absolutely love it and will probably never sell it.

                    Overall, this is a nice guitar, but like many Jaguars before it there are some quirks that some may not be able to look past. .

                    The action was terrible when it arrived, to the point that I had to shim the neck to get it to a reasonable height after many adjustments. After shimming it with a credit card piece and a few more minor adjustments it plays great. If yours is like mine, start with the shim and save yourself some time. The neck plays great so I was happy to get it setup right.

                    The saddle screws do not sit tight and buzz. I had some locks put in to help but they did not solve the problem. As far as I can tell, it does not put the guitar out of tune, but it is still a problem. In the long term, a better bridge would be the only solution.

                    The versatility of this guitar with all the pickup variations is great, and the responsive tremolo make it a very fun and unique guitar to play. I've still not gained full confidence in it as my first choice on stage, but in my studio it's been a welcome addition. As long as you understand that Jaguars can be finicky guitars, and that you might have to do a little tweaking, I don't think you'll be disappointed in it.

                    Great guitar. The finish and build quality is excellent. This guitar is very versatile as well. You can get a variety of tones out of it from warm and clean to dirty and crunchy. Therefore, it really works well for any type of music one wants to play. The shorter scale neck is a little different at first but its fine once you get used to it. Also, the guitar is a little heavy when compared to a strat or tele but I think this just helps add to it's tone. Overall, I would definitely purchase this guitar again and I would recommend it to anyone thats on the fence about getting one.

                    A very good looking guitar. I owned the Olympic White for a few years and it turned many heads. The neck is beautiful and I love the 60s styling. But I wasn't a huge fan of how the guitar actually sounds. It has so many switches and knobs but it's hard to actually dial into more than 3 useful tones. The bridge pickup sounded mean on overdrive... it growled!! That is where the guitar shines. But besides that... the neck pickup didn't do anything for me. And overall the guitar sounded too bassy and not bright enough. Swapping the pickups might give it better tones, but I never tried that. Overall a sweet guitar but lacking in tonal variety.

                    Ok, so recently I went up to a guitar center to do a lil day dreaming and all and I say this jag sitting out and I noticed they had a new model of blues junior out so I hooked it up and played and it was actually alot better than some things I've heard. Like the strings popping out of the bridge (they only do that if you pull them out yourself) and I've heard some people say their necks wouldn't adjust well but this was really high action and it didn't buzz at all. But my faveorite thing was the pickups, they where really hot and both had great, clear tone to them. It took me a few minutes to get the controlls down but I figured it out and I think the kill switch is a good idea. I play alot of live stuff with some vocal only parts in them so this would help with that alot. And also this thing had AMAZING lead sounds in it and I could do taps on the clean sounds and still hear it well. Basicly, this is a great professional guitar and you don't have to pay thousands for it.

                    My girlfriend bought this guitar for me as a gift for my birthday because I had always wanted a Jaguar due to coming of age in the 90's. I also wanted it because it had the two humbuckers in place of single coils, I use this guitar to record demos on pro tools and I gig occasionally. The classic player series is some of the best constructed mim's out there. You will have to set the guitar up but thats a given with any new guitar that you buy. The neck is very nice and doesn't seem too big or small and the jumbo frets are nice as well. The guitar takes semi-high gain distortion well and has a pretty decent clean tone on the neck. You're not going to get pure jaguar sounds from this guitar but its not made too, you however can get good bluesy or semi high gain sounds out of the enforcer humbuckers and in my opinion thats where these pickups shine. The guitar has a bass cut switch on the bottom next to the 2 pickup switch selectors also a killl switch on the upper horn which I use a lot in between songs at a gig or just when you need silence, however it is located in a spot where you could potentially engage it turning your guitar off but when you gig thats what duct tape is for I guess. Also my one other major complaint is that the coil tapping on the guitar is basically unusable for me because when you roll the humbuckers down to singles it makes the pickup so tinny and thin that it basically sounds like you took them out of phase or something especially on the bridge. It stays in tune very well with the bridge locked too, but overall this guitar is my go to workhorse guitar that is great for what it does.

                    I purchased the sunburst. Beautiful finish and looks. Was going to replace the tortoise pick guard with anodized gold or cream to be different, but really like how the tortoise looks. Action was a little high. Took off the pick guard and turned the truss rod a bit. Lowering the string height on the bridge was easy. The guitar now plays extremely easy and the pickups sound great. Using just the bridge pickup and adjusting slightly towards the humbucker setting fits my band's style well (60's influenced garage pop/rock). Only issue with playability is that occasionally I would brush against the pickup switches with a hard strum. To keep from turning the bridge pickup off I popped in a small piece of plastic to prevent the switch from moving. This has solved the issue. Overall a really cool and playable guitar.
