I love my Jagmaster. The pickups are a bit dark, but eq'able. Overall, I just like how it feels. The neck feels great - nice finish work on the frets (Medium Jumbo), nice curve to the fretboard, and - a short scale 24" (when I play a longer scale, sometimes my fingers go numb).
The body feels comfortable too - the curves are in the right places, so I never have to fight with the guitar body over how it's going to hang.
The pickups are Duncan Designed, but I need more versatility, so a Lace Hot Gold/Hot Gold (bridge) and a Lace Blue/Silver (neck) are on a UPS truck as I write.
If you want to hear it with the Duncan Designed's, here is an example - http://www.gracealley.com/profile/LawrenLelko - click on "Waxing Cold" and hear it as two rhythems and a lead. The ones in the store are all set up with the springs tight, but the trem' floats just fine and stays in tune reasonably well unless you're dive-bombing (for which you really need double-locking).
If something happened to this guitar, I'd be looking for another one the same day. You can easily buy a guitar that is half this quality for triple the price.
