I heard a lota complaints about like their bridge but i like the sound....
I have a Jag, they admittedly have their differences, but it's the most comfortable guitar I've ever played and I love their sound. Mine has a buzzstop and I use D'Addario Flatwound Chrome .11's. No issues to speak of as far as bridge issues. If you really want lighter strings or don't want a buzzstop for some reason then it doesn't cost too much to get a mustang bridge, but I prefer to keep things more original.
A jazzmaster was the first electric guitar i ever played I am going to buy one once i have saved enough.
They are so exspensive.I've wanted one ever since I started listening to Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr.
Definitely play one before you make the plunge. I don't know if I'd say its for everyone. Personally, I love them. They sound great played through a tube amp (hopefully you have one) and even better if you've got a strat player along side. The Jazzmaster is really unique in its tone and feel, as you'll note when you first play it. Fool around with some different settings and see if you find what you're looking for in the JM... If you do, I'd give it a 100% recommendation. If not, I'd move on. They're awfully expensive, but if thats what you're looking for, go for it.
