Fender 62 Jaguar - Vintage White - Rosewood Reviews
i recently bought and recieved this exact jaguar the vintage white RW Crafted in Japan Jaguar about 6 months ago. I read many many, reviews about the Jaguar and heard about people substituting the bridges, but with my jaguar this is not an issue.
Because of its apparent faults, i was more persuaded to buy a cheaper Fender Custom Classic Player 60's strat, Mexico.
I ordered the strat and soon after,i realized that despite the Jaguars lack of custom features its a really unique guitar.And after much fuss i ordered the Jag.
The delivery time did take ages but that was an exception.
The sound that came out of it was just smooth with classic fender twang and punchy bass notes. But more warming and subtle tones could be achieved by the flick of the rhythm/lead switch.
It was only after about a month, when i was trying out some stupidly and unecessary heavy fifth chords that my low E string popped out of its groove on the bridge and alternated pirtch slightly.
That classic problem with the Japanese Reissue, had fallen upon me. But i can only put it down to clumbsy and inaccurate string picking. I can pick the E string and the rest as hard as i can without them coming out of place. I lowered the bridge giving quicker action, and have nver had the problem since. It has never been a problem, its not constant and it takes half a second to put back in place.
I am not sure if it is the older reissues that have the problem but the newer models do seem to be fixed.
But if you had the money go for a vintage Jaguar, or an American Vintage, just for that really really, nice finish and tone.
The guitar is also quite heavy im not sure of the exact weight its 11lbs i think, but this is no problem when playing because of its comfortable shape.
A really unique thing that came from the Jaguar is the vibrato arm, its the best ive ever played, its so smooth beacause of its rolling bridge.
If you are recording, you can get noise from behind the bridge aswell, which has great effects for feedback, and tops other guitars 'limits'
The tone is limitless. It pumps out a different vibe every hour i play it.
I have the money for the new American vintage but i do not really see the need. They are not if anything different in any way at all.
It IS a must have for any guitarist in search of more tone, American or Japanese. The guitar has such a recognizable tone as heard on Under the Bridge, by the Chili Peppers. And with the distortion has an unmistakable violin like sustain and resonance.
