what are the downsides to getting a japanese jaguar instead of the american one


so far it seems like abetter investment

i can get it in red, cheapter by a good 600 dollars, and it has a sick ass matching headstock

nothing is ever this perfect, whats wrong with japan?


EDIT:

so far i've noticed it has different tuners and different wiring..

does wiring really affect the sound that much?

and are Kluson type machine heads bad? i really love the ones on my american deluxe strat so maybe i'll buy identical machine heads.

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

Nothing. Japan is absolutely perfect in every way. Ever.

Except for hentai. That's weird.

its sometimes the build quality, and the materials used. its not that huge, you can change anything you dont like after you get it, and still not be paying that extra 600 bucks. I'd go for it.

The Japanese Fenders are wicked!

They can compete very easily with American ones.
