My first Squier and my first Jaguar and I must say, Im pretty impressed. I was second guessing myself and thinking I should have paid the extra for the Fender Classic Player Jag, but I dont like the 3 color sunburst color and the Squier was half the price. Fit and finish is just as nice as my MIM Fender Duo Sonic and the pickups actually sound better IMO. The rhythm circuit just has a thickness to it that I really like, beefier than any single coil I can think of aside from maybe a hot P90. The amount of tones available between the rhythm and the lead circuits is excellent. Especially combined with all the different amps available on my Marshall Code. Only downside Ive come across is the well documented buzz from the bridge, but it really doesn't bother me since its not audible thru my amp. It also comes with 9s which is not a good fit at all on a 24" scale guitar. I'll be putting on 10s, possible 11s tomorrow. All in all, for $399, I think its an excellent value.
