Will a Jaguar or Jazzmaster series guitars fit in the same molded hard cases designed for the Strats & Tele guitars?

NO!

this was one of the first thing I discovered with my first Jag in the late 80's. Kind of a bummer but there are cases out there.

The Fender offsets won't fit in any of the moldeds as has been mentioned, and won't fit in many of the "universals" because they don't fit in an LP case either.

Unless it specifies the model you've got, assume it won't unless you can test it in person.

Thanks for the input...
The reason I was asking... when I was looking at the Fender cases on the Fender Website, they show separate "Multi-Fit" cases for either Strat/Tele, or Jag/JazzMaster, or Mustang/Cyclone.
But the Mustang/Cyclone case has a Tele sitting in it! So I wasn't clear how "Multi-Fit" or specific the cases really were between models.

Could be an error in the picture.

Some stuff fits in things it shouldn't, I've used Strat bags for years for Mustangs but some work and some don't.

Hardshell cases I don't need since I don't fly with them, I just know they don't work for a lot and the offsets are antsy in general.

I don't know much about "multi-fit" cases but I got a Gator case for my Jaguar. It is a nice case.

Yea, just note that it looks like the Jaguar is a snug (good) fit in that photo - so I would question if a Jazzmaster would fit since it's a hair longer.

Good thought, rev. I don't know how much longer a JM is but my Jag in the case has about and inch and a half clearance between the top of the headstock and the case.

Well, the Jag has a 24" scale neck and the JM is 25.5", so it'll be close.

Recently bought a new Gator GWE-JAG (~$85) for my Jagmaster. Fit perfectly, but I wasn't overly impressed with the construction. The panels were thin and flimsy (easily pushed in with my thumb), and the metal feet were all dented and damaged, also had misc. nicks and scratches on the vinyl covering. And this was direct ship from Gator (QC not good). If using to store your guitar at home, should be ok, but I'd be reluctant to gig with it.

However, I also bought a SKB 1SKB-62 molded case (~$140), and wow what a difference! Definitely gig material. Oddly though, it didn't have a closed storage compartment for strap, picks, etc.

I guess you get what you pay for.

I also have the SKB case, and I also think it's great. As far as the closed compartment goes, when the case lid is closed, it acts as a lid for the compartment. Maybe a pick could get out, but not a strap, the tremolo arm, or even strings.

When carrying this case, I'm happy that the handle is comfy, and am constantly reminded how big and heavy a guitar the Jazzmaster is.
