    I was just curious if any of the people who have played the Fender Jaguar had any remarks positive or negative in regards to the bass/treble switches in comparison to the knobs for blending the sound found on most other guitars.


    Edit: Or actually it is probably the on/off switches of the pickups I am thinking about as oppose to knobs.
  2. well since the jaguar isnt a jazz i dont miss the blending option :ninja: i never considered it a jazz clone or re-hash its just a great bass.

    it is a different animal altogether it just happens to use jazz pickups. yes it cn sound like a jazz but so can a stingray HH with split coils.

    you get the options for solo pickups or series/parallel wired pickups. the addition of series opens up a nice option of super bottom end (almost P like). but the secret lies with the active circuit, it can give you that little bit more aggression if its needed.

    it really is a versatile bass its a shame it gets lumbered with the jazz bass tag. the best advice i can give is to demo one and get the feel of its tones.

    I don't, but I generally run my jazz full up... As the JagLuver above me states, it's a different animal altogether :D
