I played a few of the Vintage modified Jazzmasters and Jaguars at Sam Ash and really liked how they sounded and felt. It's honestly really surprising these are as afforable as they are. I played the Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster as well and this sounded a lot better in my opinion. I ordered the Sonic Blue option and it's honestly closer to a mix of Light Blue and Surf Green. If you look at the pictures you can see it's not exactly the right shade. I didn't really mind since I still like the color as it is. The pickups are great. Sounds just like I wanted and I have no complaints about it. I replaced the strings and put some 11's on it. I hear a lot of people complain about strings slipping, but I don't have too much of an issue. I would like to get a buzz stop soon, however. It gets a little noisy behind the bridge. The guitar came set up nicely and the neck was straight. The frets were fine, but over time became sharp. It's not terrible, but it's noticable. I never had this issue with a Fender Strat or Epiphone I had previously. The neck itself feels nice and comfortable. Stays in tune fairly well. I don't use the wammy bar, so I can't really say much about it. The nut isn't great and could probably use replacing down the line, but it's not a big issue. Overall, I'm extremely happy. I really wanted a Jazzmaster and this made it possible. No regrets.
