The above quote really does describe the guitar well, it was concieved as an 'alternative' guitarist's guitar, and released as part of the Squier 'Vista' series. I think it has a design that works for any type of rock music. Also, the Jagmaster in its original form was only made for a period of TWO years- 1997 and 1998, which makes it quite a collectable. It's also just a really nice and pleasantly different guitar. The first Jagmasters had a neck in which the truss rod is adjusted at the bottom of the neck, and the later ones have a 70's style 'bullet' truss rod, which is adjusted at the headstock. A new version of the guitar with a full scale length has been introduced.
