Those who prefer their big cats to purr rather than roar will love the alluring sound and lithe form of the Blacktop™ Jaguar® 90. For this sultry new Blacktop model, we've taken our humbucking pickup-equipped Blacktop Jaguar HH and outfitted it with two single-coil pickups that give it a whole new sonic personality. Distinctive features include the classic Jaguar 24" scale, skirted black amp knobs (volume, tone) and an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with stop tailpiece.
Other features include an alder body, maple neck, 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and aged white position markers, three-way toggle pickup switching, three-ply pickguard (black-white-black) and chrome hardware. Available in 2-Color Sunburst and Candy Apple Red.

I love almost everything about this guitar. I love the Jaguar not only because I'm just generally a big fan of offset guitars, but it also offers an excellent alternative to the strat and the tele. This, in my opinion, is the best jaguar ever made. Take the classic jaguar for example, I have more than a few problems with that; the slide switches for the pickups, the oversized tailpiece, and the pickups themselves have always felt a little shallow to me. The Jaguar 90, however, settles all these little qualms. From top to bottom, here's what I like about it: The full size 70's style headstock, the shorter neck length, the p90 style pickups, the pickup toggle, and the stop tailpiece.
Now for some things you should do after getting it. I am going to put better p90 style pickups in it, just because there's always something like the stock pickups on almost any guitar out there, but better, and put better strings on it ASAP! The stock fender strings just aren't that good! Although the stock strings sound poor, the guitar itself plays well right out of the box, but once I put some real strings on it, it played so smoothly that I fell in love with is. By far the BEST JAGUAR YET!!!

This one is a honey. I love the shorter scale neck, the finish is gorgeous and getting it set up only required a few tweaks for my taste. I was a little tentative about the p90's until I plugged it in- this guitar oozes tone. From clean classic Fender tones to overdriven leads, this is an awesome guitar and an amazing value.

I own this very model on a Candy Apple Red finish and let me tell you something: It's amazing. The tone, the wood, the playability, the finish, everything. Maybe it's simple as the Strat, but those P-90's are beast. I'm experimental musician and I have tuned my Jag in down to Bd and Drop A and the sound is clear as crystal. This guitar is worth every penny you put in them, plus those curves, those curves are deadly.
