Played one at GC yesterday and really like the neck shape, I have really started enjoying the 50's Tele neck feel and that is what I determined this one to be near exact to. The polyurethane finish really seems a bit too much though.<br /> <br /> It almost felt like it was imobilizing my hand...<br /> <br /> The other one I like was the Mascis Jazz Master, really impressed with this Squier too, a liteny of tone options and a great feel. I did not get to play with the tremolo tho. WHat do these trems feel like compared to a strat trem? <br /> <br />

I have been very happy with mine. I have no issues with the poly finish on the neck, myself. I have several guitars with the poly finish so I guess I'm use to it.<br /> <br /> The only issue I have is the the vintage style tuner on the high E string. The string keep slipping out trying to tune the guitar up to pitch. My work around was to just string it the way I normally do with my other guitars. That seem to work for me.

The JM/Jag trem is similar to a Bigsby or Kahler (not as extreme on the latter, assuming one has the Kahler set fairly tight, it's very, very close to a JM).<br /> <br /> You won't be doing epic divebombs but it excels at warbles and subtle control.

"The polyurethane finish really seems a bit too much though.<br /> <br /> It almost felt like it was imobilizing my hand..."<br /> <br /> Hey froggy,<br /> Sorry if I'm telling you something you already know but, if you hit the backside of that neck with 3M Scotch Brite pad (green one) you can turn it into a satin finish in 2 minutes.<br /> <br /> Go with a light pressure and frequently check the feel until you get it to where you like it.<br /> <br /> Done this on a few necks with great success.<br /> <br /> Oh, and mask off before the headstock to your desired point first. this prevents you from over-running onto the back of the headstock.<br />
