Somebody please tell me: Were the Jaguar Thinline Re-issues all made in Japan or were there models made in the US and/or Mexico? Also, has anyone playerd one? How does it sound? How does it compare to the Telecaster Thinlines and standard solid body Jaguars

As far as I know, the Jaguar Thinline is Japanese mfg. only, in 3 color sunburst or black, double bound body with f-hole.

The Jazzmaster Thinline is also Japanese made, in black and natural, double bound body, no f-hole.

The guitar is well made, plays well

Compared to AVRI jaguars the pickups have a harsher sound.

Adjusting the pickup heights may reduce that.

Agree or changing them to AVRI Jazzmaster pickups.

Still on the fence about changing the pickups.

There is a different sound but maybe that's for the good.

Or it could be if I play the thinline before the AVRI its ok but not so good if I play it after.

Its a good problem to have.
