    I'd rather have a VM personally, even less money and more Jaguary.

    I have two VMs(one Jag), which I love, but I routed both for new pickups and I can tell you they are really scraping the barrel with the wood selection. Heck one probably was a bottom of a barrel, in that it had a substantial rotten spot. :oops:

    That looks like a nice guitar, but I'm not sure I would like a Jag with dual humbuckers. I believe the hot value on a Jag is the Squier VM. Has all the usual Jag bells and whistles as well as a couple Duncan Designed Jag single coils. I have one that is a few years old and I put some Fender '65 single coils in it and it will stand up to any Fender brand Jag out there except maybe a top of the line American. A brand new VM Jag is $399.99 and I bought mine used in mint condition for $249.

    Unlucky. I've never had one I didn't like. But, then again, they were all basses. Here's the current one, gone stealth.... 20190117_200001.jpg

    Man, I might well have grabbed that from you and I'm only a ride up 85 from Gville and Sparkle City. My old man used to live in Tryon.

    The one I posted just speaks to me. I prefer humbuckers, LOVE the color, and....never use tremolo so I tend to despise them being there in the first place. My one and only guitar with trem, a 95 MIM Strat, had the trem disabled. I can remember if I shoved a carefully sized block of wood or pennies in there to keep it from moving.

    I had it on CL for a while...wish I could have sold it to you...it was a great guitar, was just thinning the herd.

    That being the case, it looks like you found your dream guitar. I love the 24" scale of the Jaguar as it makes some of those stretch chords easier to play.

    I like the concept of a stripped down hot rodded Jag, of sorts, but I would have to have the ability to coil split so I can also get Fender-ish single coil sounds.

    I had a Johnny Marr Jag which was a peach but, Alas, I couldn't get along with the 24" scale length...and maybe with the 7.25" neck radius...and maybe with the vintage frets..well so maybe with the whole neck! I think if the guitar had at least a 9.5" radius with 6105 frets, or even medium jumbos, I'd have have dug it fine.

    Tangent, I love the frets on my Players Edition Falcon, and on my Historic Les Pauls...but the Fender vintage frets are just a bit too puny for me.

    But I love offsets big time. And I enjoy the concept of a stripped down more modernized JM/Jag, even though I love the ones with the real deal vintage electronics. I even use the "Jazz" setting! I love using it to comp "bass" lines, and it is great with fuzz, and then "wham-o" I'm back to the bright settings.

    The closest I've gotten to a more modern offset is with my G&L Doheny and it's modern two point tremolo and the G&L electronics, both of which are very effective for what they do.

    But I may be ready for a stripped down Jag-You-Ahhrr (yes, kids, not Jag-"Wire" :D)...but I think I'd go with a 25" scale length...and maybe two WDR's or two splittable gold foil hum buckers! OK, I've just added yet another PartsCaster idea to my list!

    Wow...that was a ramble! Cheers Fellas!

    Oh well.

    I need to thin the herd as well, but with bangy things and not guitars. About 8 years ago every weekend was gobs of shooting (300 roundfs was an average day) and I haven't gone to a range in almost two years. Time to ditch most of 'em.
