So, I've been drooling at fender jaguar or jazzmaster. I played them both at local music store, and I don't actually know which one would fit me better.
I think I liked Jazzmaster's pups, but I heard that they are just strat-pups in P90(?)-covers if it's jap-made. I checked and it was made in mexico, so what then?
Jaguar's neck was really nice and I like the metal plates which doesn't mean anything actually.
I was able to get more comfort tones from jazzmaster trough some Vox SS amp, but I doubt I just didin't know how to deal with it. I play some big muff -music like dinosaur jr (j mascis has signature jazzmaster), sonic youth and nirvana and other punk/alt. rock. My budget would be something between 600-900 euros.

So, any opinions about these guitars or suggestions about other models?

I hate to say it, but chances are the only thing good about that amp is the fact that the name looks a lot like the word "laser"...

Check out my band!
