Just got this new Blacktop Jag on Monday and I think it is a steal at the current price. It is built just as well if not better than my Classic players Jaguar. I brought home the blacktop Jazzmaster but had far too many problems with the trem. In my opinion this Jag blows it away. I have 2 USA made strats and I think the BT jag is just as nice (better than my Toronado Deluxe I had). Get one before they raise the price up to $700.00 because they will!
