I bought this Jazzmaster after a friend of mine bought his 60's lacquer Jaguar in Fiesta Red. I've always wanted to own a Jazzmaster because of their unique and chimey sound. Needless to say, I was plenty satisfied when I got it. It plays like a dream and the American Vintage pickups sound incredible. I highly recommend changing out the bridge, however, if you've got a strong picking hand like me. The bridge will not keep the strings in place. Look up Mastery or Staytrem bridges.
