1 Growler 1 week ago I’ve been comparing 3 Fender guitars at home through an AC15C1. -87 American Standard Strat -Recent Squire Deluxe Jazzmaster -New American Professional Jaguar. The Strat has been mine since it was new. The others are new or new to me. I like all 3 but putting them through their paces clean then with some grit, and then full on OD they all sound very close to each other, and to my ear the strat seems like it covers 90% of the tonal range of either of the others. The others can only cover maybe half of what the strat can accomplish. Anyone else here have a similar experience? Do I need to be playing at stage volume or better hear the differences between these pickups? I expected more of a difference based on the reading I’ve done, more like the difference you hear comparing a Filtertron to a Classic 57 or PAF variant. For the curious, I am floored at how good the Squire Deluxe Jazzmaster is in terms of fit, finish and sound. I expected something that would need some work and setup, maybe pickup swaps to sound good but it’s a heck of a guitar stock as is.
