Needs a setup VERY BADLY. But worth it in the end

23.09.2016
Okay, so you want to buy this guitar?
Be prepared to put some serious work into the setup.

Pros/Cons down the bottom for those who aren't bothered reading.

To set it straight, this is a very nice guitar. Looks beautiful, sounds gorgeous both clean and fuzzy, feels great to play. I could go on for a long time about how amazing it is, but instead I'll give you the cold hard facts about how much work you'll have to put into this guitar to make it playable.

So, a list of all the terrible things about this guitar...

1.Hissing from the tremolo out of the box- So I take the guitar out of the box, tune it up, give it a few strums, sounds good. Plug it in, sounds good. Insert the tremolo arm, lightly push it, and suddenly my ears are plagued with a terrible hissing sound.
I unscrewed the tremolo system, inspected every piece, screwed one of the screws in upside down, put it back together, and voila, hissing gone. Still very painful to go through with though.

2.The Bridge. I knew from other reviews that the bridge system on this guitar was bad, but I could never have imagined how tear-sheddingly awful it was going to be. The bridge doesn't sit perfectly even in the holes, so it moves about. In theory this is meant to allow it to move so that the tremolo can be used without detuning the guitar completely. I say "in theory" because it detunes regardless.
It caused instability of the bridge, which mean strings couldn't intonate / kept slipping out of the grooves. I fixed this buy wrapping duct tape around the legs of the bridge to secure it in place. This however means that the tremolo system now detunes the guitar, and I have yet to find a fix for it.
My other gripe with the bridge was the saddles. The predetermined grooves caused string slippage, and the strings wouldn't sit in the middle which caused intonation problems. They were a pain to intonate as the screws were directly underneath the strings, and if the height was not absolutely in its sweet spot on each side, then horrific buzzing would ensue. The intonation screws would also rattle. Also, the high e string would cut out on bends for no reason, which I couldn't handle.
My all-for-one solution for all of the above, believe it or not- ...drum roll... was a rubber band.
I inserted a small rubber band underneath the saddles so it would pull them together. The strings stopped slipping, the high e stopped cutting off, the buzzing stopped, and all was well. Thanks to a tiny rubber band. Once again, an absolute pain to deal with.

Now, some pros and cons

PROS
-Very nice looking, fantastic finish, wouldnt expect anything less for this price
-Fantastic weight- feels very nice with a strap on. Light enough to move about with and not in any way clunky, yet heavy enough so it doesn't flap about
-Great sounding duncan designed pickups, no complaints there. Sounds great both clean and dirty. Rhythm mode is really really warm
-Two switchable modes- Rhythm and Lead, both with seperate volume & tone controls. Lead has a booster switch and options to choose between the pickups.
-Very nice neck
-Headstock is pretty cool I guess

CONS
-The Bridge. Shockingly bad. Requires a lot of work
-The tremolo system. Once again, lots of work needed.
-Tremolo bar falls out a lot. Wouldn't trust it on stage

*Notable disappointments
-The nut. It's just okay really, looks a small bit shoddy.
-The fretboard. Again, just okay, nothing to write home about

So there you have it. A very nice guitar, if you're patient and willing to work on it or have the money for a setup.

Great little guitar.Quality jaguar tone for a fraction of the money you would otherwise need to get.

04.04.2017
Aesthetically amazing.Plays amazing.The flat frets in conjunction with the shortscale neck make for an extremely comfortable playing fee (actually play better than my American strat).Tonally great for it's money.Gives you a good taste of what a jaguar should sound like.Classic punk ,surfy and indie tones out of the box.Pickups give you the clarity you would expect and handle overdrive pretty well too (not too noisy).Takes a bit of time to get used to the circuit variations and options.Might be a bit confusing at first but definitely comes in handy when you get the hang of it.Build quality is pretty good.Haven't had any problems whatsoever.The pots and the switches feel a bit too plastic.The biggest drawback of this instrument is its bridge.This problem applies on ever jaguar guitar.the bridge is just not practical.Stings come off the saddles if you pluck or strum too hard but jaguar bridges are easily replaceable.One other "mod" you may need to do is run heavier strings and a lower tuning.Helps a ton.That's all.
