This is one of those "help me decide on which guitar I should buy" threads. I've already narrowed it down to the following two, and all my gear, guitars, and amp are in my signature. I play in a band that sounds along the lines of mewithoutYou, As Cities Burn, The Appleseed Cast, From Indian Lakes, HRVRD, and This Will Destroy You.
I know with Jazzmasters/Jaguars, I've heard a lot comes down to preference. I like both, but I may be leaning toward the jazzmaster a little more since it tends to have a smoother sound.
Any input is welcome! Thanks!

Well do you want a trem or not? Do you want soap bars or humbuckers?

The jaguar is pretty cool I'd prefer that model, the real one is kind of a surfer guitar with an automatic palm muter you can use and kind of a skakey ass bridge nothing like that one.

Do those soap bars hum with distortion?
song stuck in my head today

Between those two, the Jazzmaster. The Dragster pickups on the Jaguar HH are so-so, and you get a Trem. However, it'll be harder to mod the JM because the Jag uses standard size HBs, which would be a drop in replacement, as opposed to trying to find the right sounding JM pickups or the right shaped pickguard.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.
