Overall this guitar is great. it does everything its supposed to do and more. even though it had some problems which were mentioned above, im not sure if those are standard problems or just affected mine since i bought it second hand. as ive said before this is the most comfortable instrument ive ever played and i wouldnt part with it for anything.
Where Obtained: wrays music
Features:
Standard jaguar features. the bridge on this was really bad, the strings would slip off if you played them too hard, the saddles had a tendency to re-adjust themselves. problem solved by replacing the stock bridge with a mustang one. replaced the pickups with symour duncan quarter pound jaguar pickups, which i think are alot beter. when i got this i would have givin it a 3 or a 4 but with my mods i give it a 5.
Playability:
The neck is the best neck ive ever played, very thin, rosewood fretboard. i would also say the jaguar is the most comfortable guitar to play, sitting down or standing up. its alittle heavier then a strat, but not as heavy as a les paul.
Sound Quality:
I use this with a fender blues junior and a tubescreamer. gives a nice warm sound, but can get a pretty good twang if desired. the original pickups were weak but with the seymour duncans sound awsome. it can be alittle noisy when using overdrive or at high volumes, but this is expected with single coil guitars. it cant rock as hard as i want to sometimes, but i dont think it was made to. i mainly use it for surf, blues, alternative and sometimes some punk rock stuff.
Durability:
My jag is a real tank. its taken quite a beating and while it shows some wear (which makes it look pretty cool by the way), it can take some pretty heavy punishment and not be affected to much.

The sound is great it never falls out of tune easily, and it can produce great squeeling effects , seeing how i play emo-grunge and all

It can take the hardest knocks of all and still keep tune the harwhere never comes loose , the intonation is a difficult task though.
