FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Jaguars & Jazzmasters / Classic Player Jaguar Special HH

The Classic Player Jaguar Special HH has caught my attention.

The coil blend control sounds like it could be very useful - full humbucker, full single coil, and anything in between.

Kill switch, and tone cut switch. I'm not exactly sure what that does - Fender has nothing more to say about it on their site. I'm guessing it's similar to the Gretsch "mud" switch, and it acts like rolling the tone control back a bit.

I had a single coil CP Jag about five years ago, and thought the overall quality was good.

Any opinions on the HH?

I've had one for years now.

It has everything I've wanted from a Jaguar.

The coil blend is glorious - will go from jazzbox to traditional Jaguar on demand.

Kill switch is simply 'cut signal', like rolling off the volume on one pickup on a Gibson and flipping the switch. I use it for two purposes - if I leave the guitar on a stand for a minute while plugged in as a "stop amp from humming while idle" and as a "kill the magnetic pickups" on some patches for my guitar synth.

The slightly moved trem system both contributes to tuning stability and allows the GK-3 synth pickup to be added on the rear strap button instead of drilling a hole.

The "tone cut" switch is just a standard Jaguar strangle switch - high pass filter cutting low end, as traditional.

Pickups are actually a lot better than I expected, it was the first Fender I ever played that had good stock buckers.

As an added bonus, it's no truss-on headstock hole and no skunk stripe, which is good for cosmetics for me as it reminds me of my old transitional Fender offsets.

For the money, I don't think there's a better Jaguar coming out of Fender - and frankly, I can't stomach the idea of spending $2500 for a MIA one with proper accoutrements.

Thanks, reverendrob. Appreciate the info. I think I'm intrigued.
