      I have been playing guitar for a long time, and I have owned countless guitars over the years and the Jagmaster compares to some guitars that are 3 times the price. Dont let the price or the "Squier" name put you off, this really is a great guitar. The neck plays great even before its nice and worn in. The action feels like that of a much more expensive guitar, and it was set up great from the factory. Mine is the Jagmaster II which differs from the earlier model in that it has an alder body, strat style trem, Duncan Designed P/U's, and a few other small details. The pickups are great for bluesy or classic rock styles, but even under high gain situations they keep their composure and retain great note seperation (Definately uncommon for a "cheaper" guitar). This trhing sustains like you wouldnt believe and it really has a unique deep tone! Definately the BEST guitar for the price and I would prob pick it over many more expensive guitars! Go play one and you'll see what i mean!

      Don't get me wrong the Jagmaster is a great looking guitar and I bought it because I have always wanted to own a Jaguar but could not afford one. The guitar has a good action but I am very frustrated with trying to tune the guitar so it sounds tuned when you play all cords. The worst string is the G. When I tune the guitar with a tuner, then playing a C chord it sounds tuned but when I play a D chord the G string sounds way out of tune (sharp). I lower the tune on the G string and now the C and G chords sound terrible (the G string is flat). I have tried adjusting the bridge and every adjustment I know and the G string still sounds terrible. I also have a Squire Strat with the same problem. A frustrating problem I have had with my Squires. I have been able to make the guitar tune better using light gauge strings and replacing the G string with an ultra light D string but this makes it a little harder to do my lead solos.

        Comments about Squier Jagmaster Electric Guitar:

        This is the last guitar i will ever need. It is one of the best Squier guitars i have ever own. The only one that EVEN comes close is the Modified Tele, and i will never get rid of that one. These guitars are awsome and way better than i could ever realize when it comes to any Squier guitar. Believe me, i should know cause i have two other Squiers and i have NO problums with any of them.

          Had one almost since they came out! Switched pups. to get "4 wire" coil tap/splitting option. These are-[or were 2 wire pups, when i got mine.]. All in all, a sweet little Ax! BTW I have 35 guitars, was a travelling road musician for many years, and had owned a guitar/Amp Shop, in the "70s.Sooo I have a basis for comparison.It's a easy playing good sounding guitar, even W/O the Pup mod.

            Comments about Squier Jagmaster Electric Guitar:

            bought this as a level 4. It had a bad pot and a few scratches and a crack in the neck pocket only noted when the face plate was removed. a bit of work and it was working perfectly. Boy am I glad I pulled the trigger on this one
            I have never bought squiers. I always thought they were cheap guitars. Wrong!. Sure its not a 2000 guitar but the quality is outstanding. Heres the run down as based on my 30 or more years of playing.
            Tuners are functional. No need to change. Neck is beautiful with really terrific fretwork. no need for fret leveling. Nut is decent and well cut. no need to swap out. Pickups which are Duncan designed sound GREAT!. Once again no need to change. they are full, clear, without mud and sound great clean and overdriven. body is well finished. bridge is vintage strat style and stays in tune well. pots are average as noted by the failed tone pot. this is the only thing I would change if I bought a new one and honestly since they work I would just wait until they failed to change. I've seen worse. This guitar is perfect for rock, blues and of course grunge style rock. It needed a set up but out of the box a new one (not level 4)would not need anything else. Is a great guitar esp for the price

                  Great guitar. I've owned one since high school and it's been through a lot of garage bands with me. My current collection totals about 54 guitars, everything from First Act to Martin, and the Jagmaster is still my favorite.

                  I turned my back on it for a while because of the "Squier" label, but I've come to realize this guitar is just special.

                  It's crisp and loud. It's perfect for indie and punk. It looks awesome. It has a strat trem system, which is nice and simple.

                  It doesn't fit every style, but if you're looking for hard and loud, it's perfect. I played mine until sweat rusted the trem bar.

                  Wouldn't trade it for a '54 Strat or a pre-war Martin. For whatever reason, I love it that much.

                    I have read most of the reviews and agree that this guitar is an amazing value, looks great, has excellent woods and finish, nice fretboard.
                    I am a tinkerer so I immediately went to work on some affordable upgrades. I removed the pickups and electronics and installed a DiMarzio DP191F at the bridge and a DP190F at the neck and added the EP1111 3-way switch, upgraded the pots and knobs to CTS. While I was at it, I completely lined the cavities with copper foil shielding. The results are amazing. I also replaced the saddles with GraphTech String Savers. All these mods were quite affordable but they were worth it and turned a cool looking budget axe into a complex tonal machine.

                      This was the second guitar I ever bought. I've owned one of these since 1997, and although I've bought and sold many other guitars, electric and acoustic, through the years, this is the only one that has stayed with me from (almost) the very beginning.

                        Comments about Squier Jagmaster Electric Guitar:

                        I have to say, I am quite impressed with this guitar, especially for the price I paid. Even had I bought it for the list price, I would be very happy. It looks stunning, like any Fender offset guitar. The wood grain was nearly flawless, even for being a three-piece alder body, it matched up almost perfect. And the burst is beautiful. The neck is a single flat sawn piece of maple, with great color and grain. Acoustically, it's pretty loud, which might account for it's *spoiler* great tone. Plug it in, and clean, the bridge pickup is punchy, but still crispy and kind of twangy. The middle position is pretty "quacky", almost like a Tele middle. The neck pickup sounds fat, full of bass (no mud), and surprisingly articulate. Crank the gain, and I think you'll be pleased. The bridge pickup is crunchy, bright, but not super hot. The middle sounds kinda like the in-between spot on a wah pedal. The neck pickup is decent dirty, bright like the bridge pickup, pretty fat, but still not super hot. They're definitely usable, but I may replace them down the road. As far as playability, it's awesome. Nice low action, and very little fret buzz (all Fenders buzz a little from the outdated 9.5" fretboard radius...). Bends are smooth and easy, and neck feels great. It's got a broken in feel you don't have with most newer guitars. Well to sum it up, Fender/Squier made a home run with this baby. Great looks, playability, sound, feel, and price. Literally the only draw back is that it goes out of tune very quickly if you use the tremolo (any non locking trem will). Otherwise, it stays in tune for days at a time with very minor adjustments. I would use this to play anything from blues, and jazz, to alternative and progressive metal. And it's good enough to be a studio guitar, but cheap enough to beat on every weekend at gigs. Would recommend the JagMaster to anyone!

                            I have played this Jag for 10 years & have found nothing wrong with it. No changes to the pickups nor electronics. Mine is a vintage model in red with a black pickguard sporting the 20th anniversary logo. Just periodic maintenance, I am happy! Just got a Fender Standard Strat for Christmas, can't wait to set up & play, but it will not replace my Jag!

                            Comments about Squier Jagmaster Electric Guitar:

                            Overall this guitar plays and looks really great and subdued my fix for an offset guitar. The guitar has a lot of modding potential. I opened it up and the Duncan Humbuckers are four lead so you could split them pretty easilly and you have a lot of cavity space and room on the pickguard for adding extra controls. I would still choose this one over the vintage Modified Jazzmaster and Jaguar because I feel those ones have more features but are extremely ugly guitars. This one looks much more vintage to me. You can get some great tones out of the humbuckers but it would have been nice to have single coil tones from the factory in my opinion. My biggest problems are the shape of the pickguard and the neck takes some getting use to. Other than that I do really love this guitar and its a modders dream.
                            This guitar looks great and plays great, My complaints are: the short scale neck, the ugly pickguard, and the limitations of the humbuckers. My praisals are: the ease of playabillity, the styling of the guitar, the tone of the humbuckers, and the tremolo. I give it a seven because it has so much more potential as far as featres go, I'll explain later.
                            This is where the guitar shines. The Duncan Designed humbuckers sound excellent if you like humbuckers, the neck feels and plays great with the exception of the cramped short scale, the tremolo works great, no buzzing, and stays in tune. Its a really solid guitar and the neck feels like a much older instrument.
                            I feel for the price tag and the features this guitar is a little over priced. You have one tone, one volume, two humbuckers, and a three way switch. The tremolo is strat style and the pickguard is plain. I don't see where the money is coming from in my opinion. Its a nice alternative for an offset guitar in a good price-range but compared to the prices of squire strats and teles I think its a bit inflated.
