I was wondering what the real difference is between these two guitars besides aged pickups in the original. Seeing as I could a afford both RI= $900 and a less rare 66 original = $3000. Because I thought why not buy the reissue, because it wont have any of the original faults so I was just wondering really what keeps the original selling if it a has fair few faults ? oh and what about that rather sexy looking Jaguar HH what are peoples views on that ?

the RI still has all of the original faults i think. t'is a very faulty guitar. but nothing is perfect, i'm still saving up for a RI myself.

I think that the HH jag is pretty good, i doubt it has the issues of the original version, but its a different tone all together. i've never played one so i can't say whether its any good or not but it probably is.

Everything is there. But they seem to say that the originals from the sixties are better. (And not the ones from 66 and after that, but something pre-cbs.)

Though I would rely on the reissue. New and all.

I have serious doubts about the HH, because of the pickups. I wonder if it sounds Fender at all. But who knows. I've never played HH.

If you want a jag, get the original or the RI, the humbucker model can hardly be classified as a jag (sound wise anyway).

I'd get the original 'cause i just LOVE vintage guitars. I want one so bad.

well, the bridge humbucker on my Cyclone still has that fender tone, just a different version of it, so i think it would still have a fender vibe to the tone even if it doesn't entirely give you the typical tone.

I think the pickups haven't changed much, but the body and it's details. So they should sound quite the same.

I'm so happy with my reissue, I've never had the privilage to play a vintage one. Personally I'd go with the reissue just because I'd obsess about a vintage one's well being and never really enjoy it. As for the HH, thats just not a Jaguar, the Jag, in my opinion, is the ultimate single coil guitar out there.
