Recently bought a Classic Player Jag and I am really pleased. To me it retains the good aspects, does away with the less desirable and adds some be features. Likes: - reduced bridge rattle - more sustain - easier bending due to bigger frets and 9,5’ radius - incredibly tight neck fit Dislikes - saddle adjustment screws rattle a bit - the vibrato placement looks a little off but the mechanical advantage makes it worth it - why didn’t the put a treble bleed on it? The jury is out on the pickups... Cons: not as pretty sounding as vintage style ones Pros: sit well in the band mix, fullness makes up for bridge pickup placement and makes strangle switch useful. The seller had lost the vibrato arm so I haven’t evaluated tuning stability yet. Have feeling it will be fine though.
