  • Questions about fender jaguars (possible local purchase)

    Hey all, I'm starting this thread here, because I know alot of guys in the fx forum dig these, & the EG forum has seemed alot like the the maps forum lately anyway, so here goes: white '93 MIJ fender jaguar, used condition, dimarzio in the bridge, gibson bridge for stability (still has original), hardshell case, $650. Thoughts anyone? I just missed a lake placid blue one w/ a gig bag (in similar condition) for $550 that I really dug, but couldn't get to it in time (it went fast). Here's a link:

          I've bought and sold them for cheaper, but I love Jaguars. I would pass on that particular one, though, because I just wouldn't like the mods done to it. I'd have to spend extra $$ undoing them!

          get a stock one or one with nicer mods. I like Jaguars and Jazzmasters to be more authentic, personally -- because they are great sounding guitars that don't need to be hotrodded (just with more authentic pickups). Maybe a Mustang bridge if you're going to be a baby about it.

            Thanks guys!!! I really wanted that lake placid blue one; I really dug the color w/ the rosewood board. It was a mid-90's MIJ as well...

              at that price, i would not jump on it, but it is roughly fair value from what I have seen for MIJ ones.

              i also live in the pacific NW and have checked for Jags occasionally on CL and they are hard to come by locally. I'd keep your eye on ebay.

                i agree I'd pass on it based on the mods. in fact i have seen that CL listing for a week now and was never interested in it myself.

                  I wouldn't. Especially since it's been modded quite a bit.

                          That's a fair price considering the hard case is included.

                            Just heard back form him; he doesn't have the orig bridge pup, and the case is an ibanez (lame). The tolex fender cases are hard to come by 'round these here parts...

                              Yeah, the case makes it a decent deal, and if you're into the mods that were done it wouldn't be bad. But personally I'd have to change the pickup and bridge and I never cared too much for the white/tortoise myself. If you dig the finish and mods, make him an offer.
