Are MIJ jag's necks thicker than MIM/AV's?


Recommended Posts

As my Squire VM Jaguar got stolen, I'm considering MIJ Traditional 60s or MIM Classic Player for upgrade, but I can't test a Japanese model.

According to Japanese Fender website, MIJ stock model are having an ''U Shape'' neck, when most of the other Jaguar stock models like MIM Classic Player or American series are made with ''C Shape'' necks.

So does it mean MIJ Jag are having a thicker or bigger neck?

As a player with small hands, it's considerable to have thinner necks because they are more comfortable to play with. Thanks a lot

      Hello,
      I need a replacement  pickguard for my 1996 MIJ Jag-Stang.  I was hoping Fender would sell me one from the MIM production line however they told me it wouldn’t fit because Japan uses the metric system so the new Jag-Stang would be slightly different. Instead they recommended that I buy on from WD Music. 
       
      I contacted that vendor because the description was confusing but I got a much more confusing answer :
      « It [the pickguard] is made to fit the American made Jag-Stang, It will not fit the Japanese models. The Japanese models are not consistent from year to year especially the 90’s »
      I thought there was only two Jag-Stang made in the US. One delivered to Cobain and the other kept by Fender. Am I wrong ? Was there really a US manufactured Jag-Stang at some point ? 
       
      Does anyone has an original pickguard for sale? Willing to pay a good price for it. Or maybe a place where I can get one  to recommend ?
      any experience buying one from WD ? 
       
      thanks 
       
      Pat.

      Hi All,
      I've been looking to buy a Jag-Stang for years now and I finally found a 1996 in good shape and reasonable price but I sees that Fender is about to release the 30th anniversary version.
      Should I wait or go vintage ? All opinions welcomed
       
      Thanks

      Background:
      Tele player here. I am looking to give offsets another try but I'm a little scared. I once owned a cheap fender blacktop jaguar and it was an awful guitar. Although it was cheap, the major issue with it was that the neck pocket was completely flat and it would not intonate properly(past the twelve fret it was way sharp and the action was way too high). No amount of playing with the truss rod, bridge, or saddles could fix this, even when it was taken to a professional. Since then, I have decided to never buy a bolt on guitar with a raised bridge. Still, they look so cool and I can't help but want one. I also think they have the best sounding trems.
       
      Question:
      Are there any offset guitars that fender currently sells that come with a properly angled neck pocket? I noticed they fixed the saddles on a lot of these guitars in recent years and I am wondering if they have fixed the neck pocket angle on any of them as well. I know you can shim the neck, but I don't' want to stick a piece of plastic or wood in the neck pocket of my guitar, I want one with the neck pocket cut properly or I don't want one at all.
