Man oh man, I love Fender, and I have loved my stratocaster for 6 years now, always loved the Design of the Jaguar, and now with the Modern Player, it is affordable, very playable, and the fact that the wood is MAHOGANY is enough to kick your shoes off. The tone is magnificent with the P-90's on there, bright and FULL sound. Versatile guitar, perfect if you play anything from Rock&Roll, to Hard Rock, Surf Rock, Reggae, virtually any style. Again, the Tone, Finish, Neck, and frets are all comfortable and amazing. Highly recommend this guitar for anyone looking for an outstanding piece.

Event though the sales guy complained of its weight as he brought it over, it suits me fine. The mahogany body looks tasty under the 2 tone chocolate burst finish. The balance is perfect when using a strap.
The neck is comfortable and smooth to play.
The pickups go from sizzling, high end honkyness to rolling off the tone knob to get a velvet laden boomy stereolike depth. Great sound in this price point, so I am undecided on aftermarket upgrades being necessary. I will have to adjust the action/bridge to suit me when I put on larger gauge strings, although the stock ones are comfortable and responsive.
I do not especially care for the jazz bass knobs, but as a bass player first - I did not care for them on the bass either. I can replace them simply enough. I love the top mounted Strat style output jack! The tuning keys are firm and solid.
I got this on a Columbus Day sale price, plus an instant in store rebate of $30, so I was out the door for under 300.00 - cha ching! Icing on the cake!
Check it out!

Relative to its price, this guitar is by far the best in terms of quality and playability out of any I've ever owned - though its quality would be competitive at any price.
I love the stripped-down aesthetic and the fact that all this simplicity is available in the Jaguar/Jazzmaster body shape...probably the coolest shape Fender make.
Short scale length and amazing action mean the easiest guitar I have ever owned to play.
The tone from the P90s is massive and has many layers...unique.
I love the tone, playability, as well as the price for this guitar. It was exactly the sound I was looking for. The finish and feel are excellent.

I've been a hollowbody guitar player for years. Recently I decided that I need something solid that can handle all the fuzz I've been using live. I originally wanted something that tonally could be dark enough that the jump wouldn't be so drastically different for my sound. After testing quite a few guitars, this Jaguar seemed to be the best. The heavy body is very dark and thick in sound. The neck is amazingly thin and smooth. The pickups are a bit cleaner that the p-90s that I've been using. But nice enough where I'm not going to replace them for a while. Overall the quality is pretty incredible considering the price point. They few people who have picked it up totally fell in love with it. Two of them being owners of American Fender! I would totally recommend this to anyone who loves Fender but wants a super beefy fat sound! Its all wood.
