I'm an old guy/former player looking to get back into guitar. My last electric was a Lake Placid Blue, pre-CBS Fender Jaguar, bought used from my friend's grandfather back in the day. I foolishly sold that guitar after the birth of my daughter 25 years ago.

Anyway, I want another Jag and am trying to decide between a Squier Vintage Modified ($399 list) and a Fender Classic Player ($799). I know neither of these guitars will match up to the vintage Jag, but I just want the guitar for noodling around/playing by myself. Curious if y'all think the Fender is worth twice the price of the Squier. Thanks!
