Squier Jagmaster Review

Author: Rob

Are you kidding me? This is a great guitar. People saying "strings broke" "setup was bad" and my favorite "won't stay in tune" cracks me up. All guitars need a string replacement as soon as you get it. Take off the 9's and put on man's strings, at least 10's or 11's. ( hurts my weak, pink, teenage hands) Come on. MAN-handle those strings like BB, Eric, Jimi, Stevie, Muddy, Johnny, etc. Give 'em grief!!

All guitars need adjustments to bridge and intonation. And it's a tremolo.....put a couple more springs on it.

I've got a lot of guitars (expensive and cheap) and the Jagmaster is awesome. Don't make the mistake of thinking that since it doesn't cost much it's not a fantastic guitar. It is. Neck shape, finishing, and frets are great (that's the heart & soul), pickups sound great (use a decent amp...not a shredder, and you'll see).

And looks? Who cares about looks? It's a working musician's tool. And a damn great one. If you play it like it's meant to be played, and make 'em weep, people will want one because YOU play it.
