Offset questions

Post by ChristheRat » Sun Jul 07, 2019 3:46 pm

What’s the difference between a JM and a Jag? Also what’s it called when a jm has Two Humbuckers and none of the other control panels, like just volume and tone nobs? Noob questions:)

Eh, guess I'll field this:
  • Scale length - Jaguar: 24" , Jazzmaster: 25.5"
  • Pickups - Jaguar: Smaller/more Strat-like with claw sheilding, Jazzmaster: larger/no claw
  • Switching - Jaguar: Individual switches/bright switch, Jazzmaster: Les Paul/SG style switch & no bright mode
  • Plates - Jaguar: Yes, Jazzmaster: No
  • Mute - Jaguar: Yes (some,) Jazzmaster: No
  • Body Shape - Very slight differences in the horns, if you have to ask...
I guess an HH Jazzmaster is usually called a 'Jazzblaster' - many different models meeting that general criteria will have gone by different names from Fender.
