Needs more knobs and switches.
As if Jags were not busy enough already...and I darned sure ain't paying $1,500 for a poly covered guitar...at least not a Fender poly finish. G&L, Suhr, etc. do great poly finishes.
I do dig that color scheme, though.
I totally had a semi just from reading the thread title...but something about that guitar just doesn't do it for me, even thought the Jag is probably my favourite body shape and I love thinlines. I think it's the binding on the body that is putting me off. I might dig it in another colour, though. Or with a maple neck.
Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.

The switch on the top horn turns on the "rhythm circuit" (basically additional tone controls). The two things beside it are thumb wheel volume and tone pots for that.
The three switches on the bottom horn are:
- bridge pu on/off
- neck pu on/off
- phase reversal (puts the pickups in/out of phase with each other)
And of course you have master volume and tone over by the bridge.
It looks weird compared to most guitars, but the Jag switching system gets you a heck of a lot of tones out of those two pickups.
If only there was a hardtail version!

A solid body Jag sounds thin and plunky. What is a semi-solid going to be like.
I will keep mine ... not thin sounding at all ...
