Besides the fact that Hendrix didn't play one. Why are they the most affordable pre CBS Fender? I mean do they sound bad? Let me hear your thoughts.

I had one in that time too!1964 Jag was my #1 in '65-'66. Terrific neck & playability, Hernia maker.
IIRC they sold for more and were considered a better guitar than the Strat back in the day (or was that the Jazzmaster??)...then Hendrix played a Strat most of the time. My 1966 Strat came from a guy that said he wanted a Jag or Jazzmaster but couldn't afford it so got a Strat as a "good enough" guitar....the fact that Hendrix didn't play one.
I had the same problem, my '65 had a pencil-thin neck. Those slide switches are annoying as hell too.i love the sound of jaguars and jazzmasters, but i sold mine because of the neck.
it wasn't necessarily the length as much as it was the shape (too thin)- since I have longer fingers, my hands were often cramped.
i'd really like to own one again some day, but i couldn't use it as my main player as i once did.
werent theres modded with HBs and stuff? i cant picture anyone whos played a straight jaguarmaybe no guitar heroes used them, but it seemed like jags were popular in the 90's, maybe since Kurt Cobain played one. not to mention Sonic Youth, who played them with knives and screwdrivers and kept them all in a cardboard box.
