Cyclone II Questions (Not about I or II)

Well, I'm considering getting a Cyclone II, as there's one for sale at a shop near me for about $1100 AU.

Anyway, I want to get surf/noise/post punk sounds out of it.

Keep in mind I now have a standard strat.

My ideal guitar would be a Jag, but it's going on three times the price of the Cyclone II, and I was wondering if it would be a good choice?

a CIJ Jaguar should be significantly cheaper than a Cyclone II. You're probably looking at the American Jaguars, which are expensive and aint worth it.

a few people have said that the cyclone II sounds more like a strat than a jag. Personally i tried one in a shop, and its a very versatile instrument - definitely nicer sounding than a CIJ jag anyway!

an american jag aint worth it?

echleon are you high? you have a jap jag right?

and before that you had the hh? or an i thinking of someone else?

an american jag is definitly worth the extra 400.00 or so.

my jag was 900.00 so basically the extra 300.00

i love laquer, in my opinion its the only way to go and come on, hard case all the candy, the mute, cover. all the goodies. you don;t get any of that stuff with a brand new cij jag.

not to mention wax potting.

hey, yeh thats me.

sorry i din't mean to offend - just if you're looking to buy a jag, i would buy a cheaper japanese one first rather a US one. You could always then change the pickups if you dont like them.

Also over here in the UK the American reissue jaguars go for around
