i own this late-nineties '66 RI with lollar pickups. the sound is incredible but it had/has exactly the problems you'd expect from a 20-yr-old Fender offset: significant fret buzz from wear/swelling/whatever and an amusing but almost totally non-functional original bridge. i got mustang saddles installed per a luthier's advice, but this is obviously a band-aid fix as the high e goes through its saddle at quite an angle and seems to sit either a bit too far up or down the fretboard at most times. other than that and the goddamn fret buzz, which i'm assuming i'll need treated with a general leveling or even plek job, the guitar is real nice. tone has the plink, bite, and elusive "bounciness" of vintage surfy Fender offsets, and the playability is good. worth the $900 for me but i'd advise not buying one unless you can try it out in person to check for usual aging-related issues that can get amplified by the Jag's short scale. also know that a Mastery, Staytrem, or even US Fender bridge should help substantially with the infuriating string jump thing.
