I own one guitar nowadays,and have sold pretty much all my gear because hey, divorce. Anyhow,this is it. It's a gun metal blue Japanese Fender Jag HH. Beaut of a guitar.

The only minor complaint is having gigged it for the first time on Saturday, my back was in fucking tatters. Weighs a ton. May need to pick up an extra something cheap and light for Vircolac gigs, but I ain't letting this go.

Maybe a thick padded strap might help? I have a big fat leather one that someone left in my gaff and it goes on all basses and heavy guitars for comfort - makes a big difference in fairness.

Yeah 3 inch leather straps made a huge difference for me. I'd love to try one of those fancy ones but they're wile dear so plain leather for 35 quid will do the job.

These are fantastic for heavy guitars, wide and padded. I've used them for years.

Was it tricky getting the Jag set up for B standard because of the scale length?

Never seen one that cheap before, adding that to my Thomann wishlist. Cheers.

Pfft, I've never set a guitar up in my life. I just bunged a set of 10s on it and it was grand.

Gibson les Paul gold top, Gibson SG 60s special with p90’s and my Mexican P bass. These make me very happy.
