I don’t personally know what J has against Jaguars. I have an older Guitar World interview with him (and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine!) where he admires their looks, but mentions his dislike of the shorter Jaguar scale. Jaguars really aren’t commonly held in the same regard as Jazzmasters on the vintage market. But then, If people/bands like J, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana, etc. hadn’t started playing them in the late 80’s/early 90’s (and many of those bands played them only because they were cheap), Jaguars, Jazzmasters, and (especially) mustangs wouldn’t be nearly as popular today.
What were we talking about again?
