Hey I was looking for my second guitar and really love these two, however, I'm stuck in choosing between the two!

I've already got a MIJ Strat so I was after something with a bit of a different sound. I'm leaning towards the Jazzmaster but I think the pickups look ugly (not that it really matters ). What would you reccomend?

Personally, I like the Jag better, but that's just me. Go with what you like better, and don't not get the guitar you like better because you don't like the pickups.

Haha yeah I know that's not really holding me back, just finding it hard to choose between the two.

Jaguar has 24" scale, style single coil pickups, lots of switches

Jazzmaster has 25 1/2" scale (same as a strat), soapbar pickups, few less switches.


Those are the major differences.

I'd definitely get the Jazzmaster. P90 pickups are awesome and it'll be pretty different from your Strat because of it. It makes more sense than getting a Jaguar.

I'd go for the Jaguar, but truth is both are nice guitars. Try them out! That's really the best way to decide.
#13
Stock Jazzmaster pickups aren't P90s, just to let you know; they're single coils.

You'd probably be more comfortable with a Jazzmaster due to its standard scale length and less switches, so I'd most definitely recommend the Jazzmaster. Remember though, neither guitars are that great. I get absolutely no sustain from my Jaguar. Never played a Jazzmaster though.

Thanks guys for the replys, I'll try them both out but the Jazzmaster is sounding good.

You should look at the J Mascis Jazzmaster. I think it's around 800 bucks and it looks awesome.
