I had a bash on a Jag in a shop in Bristol last week. Kind of glad I didn't get one. It didn't feel as nice to play as I'd expected. And it sounded a bit dull, when I expected it to sound totally stabby, with those pokey single coils. The Jazzmaster felt much nicer to play, which is weird, as they look rather similar. What's making the Jazz feel better than the Jag?

 

Then in the same shop I had a go on a MicroKorg. Now all I can think about is synths. I want it.

Longer scale length?

Jaguar single coils do have a particular sound. The jaws around the pickups are meant to reduce noise, but they have a big influence on the tone too. In terms of feel, A Jazzmaster has a 25.5" scale length neck, which makes a huge difference to feel when compared to the Jaguar's 24" scale length.
