They're pretty much the same thing except JazzMasters have Single Coils and Jaguars have Humbuckers.

jazzmasters have p-90's and jaguars have single coils, ballroomofmars is on crack aparently. this means the jazz master will have more mellow cleans, and a slightly hotter and raw tone. jaguar will have the shimmery cleans and bite of a single coil.

they have essentially the same design, save for the necks... the jazzmaster has a normal 25.5 scale neck (more comfortable imo), jaguar has a short 24 inch scale.

^Jazzmaster's don't have p-90's, but a fender soapbar pup that looks like a P-90 but doesn't sound like one at all.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

no they do not.

Jazzmaster pickups are often confused with Gibson's P90 pickups although their construction is similar but not identical. The coil is wound flat and wide, in contrast to Fender's usual tall and thin coils. This gives them a warmer tone without losing their single coil clarity. The Jazzmaster has a mellower, jazzier tone than the Strat, although it wasn't embraced by jazz musicians.

Blargh youre people and lack of knowledge.

Theyre pretty different guitars to play really.

Firstly the jaguar has a 24" scale length, which I find much more comfortable myself, the jag has a dual circuit, on the lead circuit use the 3 bottom slelectors to turn on/off pickups and the bass cut. This circuit uses 1meg pots on the bottom for tone/volume which are quite important for the surfy twang of the jag. The sound is very bright and distinctive. The rytym circuit uses only the neck pickup and has a second set of 500k pots to control the tone volume of this individual circuit. The pickups are your standard single coil pups, very bitey, plus a sheilding claw to help with some of the noise issues with the jag...

The jazzmaster has a standard 25.5" scale length, but with the same 7.25" low radius and C profile neck. The circuit is different, still the same lead/rythym circuit selector, the lead circuit has a basic 3 way toggle switch with the same volume/pots set up and the basic same idea for the ryhtym circuit. But the pickups are alot warmer, and although they look like p90s, they arent, but they are pretty middy and have much more low end.

Theyre both good for different things. I find the jag plays better, but the jazzmaster sounds better. I ultimately picked the CIJ jag myself. Deffinately needs a pup upgrade though, the CIJ pups are awfull.

But they both have the same issues with the bridge, and tremelo set up. Ultimately, go to the shop and try them both out. One will call to you...

Neither is better. Just different.
