Fran ; you are talking the current shortscale model jagmaster when you say the chinese ones arent you?
I'm being obsessively thorough about this, because i'm in danger of buying a STRAT n case the jag doesnt work. this as you can imagine would be terrible, becasuse the jag is simply the sexiest guitar shape ever.
And we all have our spec preferences, but this project to me will be the ultimate offset ; two P90'S, the offset look and without the 'quirks' of the jaguar and jazzmaster - for band purposes (many hours of rehearsing and gigs when we can get them) i need simple reliability and versatility with good tones, not just 'jack of all trades' - the P90's are at times out-doing my prized telecaster for all round versatility, and thats quite an acheivement.
Anyway, i digress, i have a guitar to build!
