This looked interesting and only $300. So I bought one. Should be here Monday. Minimalist, mahogany, 24" scale length, 9.5" radius, Volume, Tone and a 3-way switch. 2 MP90 pickups. For $300 I had to try it out. I got the black transparent color. It looks the most minimalist to me and that's what attracted me to it.

Haven't heard any bad things about them, other than the grumblings about the departures from normal Jaguarness.

Let us know how it turns out!

Right. It's not a Jaguar. It's shaped like a Jaguar, mostly. I'd like to have a USA Jag one of these days. What I'd really like is to have my Duo-Sonic II back! But it is long gone since about 1983.

Yea, I can see having one at the right price if I didn't already have more guitars than sense (and two regular-ish Jaguars already).

Kicking myself for not getting the prototype AVRI Jaguar when I had a chance for what is now a song.

jhawkr, you mentioned Duo-Sonic, so I thought I would tell you about one. I don't know a lot about them, as I've never played one. There is a 1967 Duo-Sonic in a local Fender dealers, in Gadsden AL. I've looked at it, but didn't play it. It has the original hard case, and looks to be in good shape. They say it was bought new in Gadsden. They are asking $1000 for it. There are some photos of it on their Facebook page. Just scroll down the page. It's not mine, though I have thought about buying it. I hope this doesn't break any posting rules.

Yeah, they're pricey now. I paid $125 for mine. Sold it years later for $150 and thought I killed on the deal. Who knew?


The Pseudo Jaguar will be here today! Good job Musician's Friend!

Got the Suedo-Jag. The little sucker is sweet! Extreme low action, intonation dead on. Weight is 132 oz on a postal scale, about 8-1/4 lbs. I'm at my office right now so I have no idea what it sounds like. MIC. I'm really liking the feel and playability though. No gig bag but I have tons of them laying around at home. If this sounds decent it's a keeper. And maybe if it doesn't! It would be a candidate for some nice Gibson or Grosh soapbars! I'm thinking it's a pretty good deal for $299! Check out the tinted neck!

I picked up a Modern Player Jag in chocolate burst this weekend after playing it at the local GC. The neck was very nicely finished and the overall look is very cool. I'm not sure I will keep the stock tuners though...they seem sort of mushy.

If anybody has replaced those tuners please let me know what you went to and how they worked for you. Thanks.

BTW, I'll post a pic later this week.

I have wanted one of those in chocolate burst since they came out, but never pulled the trigger.

I am very curious to hear impressions of the pickups...

They sounded good in the store through a Super Champ. I was looking for something with P-90s when I went in and also played a couple of low-end LPs to compare them with the Fender. The Gibson PUs sounded more articulate (crisper?) but the Fender MP-90s had plenty of character and volume. They don't seem noisy either.

They sound nice through my EC Vibro Champ at home too.

I won't be replacing my pups. They sound great through my FSR Deluxe Reverb, Marshall Haze 15 or either of my Vox AC15's. It's a simple little tone monster. I am going to have to make some adjustment on the nut though. It's not cut quite right.

I replaced my pickups with a set of Golden Age P-90s from Stewmac. They are some sweet sounding pups for sure.

I also replaced the stock tuners as I couldn't keep it in tune. I put on some Gotohs and they are rock solid.

While I had the strings off I smoothed up the ends of the frets and mades sure the nut was in good shape.

Last night I finished the setup and was surprised at how little I had to do to set the intonation.

Looks awesome, sounds great and plays smooth.
