FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Jaguars & Jazzmasters / Which Jazzmaster to get?


United States

I have a MIJ Jazzmaster but its not here.

If I buy another Jazzmaster, which is good to buy? Squier, Players Classic or buy one of the American series?

I am not interested in the Players Classic because I dont like the different neck and the hot pickups are ok, but want the regular Jazzmaster pickups.

How are the Squiers?

Worth buying a Squier or Player Classic and change out the pickups to regular pickups? And change the tremelo to a Fender Jazzmaster tremolo if I go with Squier?

A second hand squier JM would be a good idea if you like a particular type of pick up.

The trem may not need changing.

I've had a Squier Mascis since they came out.

I've changed two things: the knobs (I do this on pretty much anything without speed knobs), and refinned it to purple.

It stays in tune, works well, no problems.

I have a Squier J. Mascis and it's a great guitar.

Don't forget about the Classic Lacquer and Road Worn models, either.
