If it's like the old Jags, then you may find the trem to be a bit of a bitch. Instead of a strat-style trem, Fender went with some crazy ass design which only half works. The saddles were pretty ****ty (strings would jump out if you played too hard), and the whole mechanism took ages to set up right. Dunno if they still use this trem design, but it's worth checking beforehand.

That's the only real problem I've heard with them. The pick-up switches apparantly can be a little confusing, but I've also heard that they give a lot more tonal options than your standard Strat set up.

^You can get a cheap fix on the bridge anyways though, as I'm sure you well know.

That sounds like a nice price, IMO. Definitely worth looking into.

fantastic guitar, mine is olympic white. swap out the bridge for one from a fender mustang and then youre all set. pick ups are hard to work out with all the switches, at first, but youre good after youve worked it all out.

they do use that bridge design on the MIJ/MIA models. it's not the trem that's the problem though, it's the bridge - it balances on 2 sharp points inside metal cups simply forced against the body by the force of the strings, which is very little, so the bridge can easily be knocked out of place, and also the lack of tension causes the vibrations of the string to rattle the many adjustment screws of the bridge so they work their way loose and fall out. It's actually very straightforward to set up once you've overcome the problems.
