Sound samples of vintage and reissue Jaguars and Jazzmasters

A sound is worth a 1000 pictures.

I decided against riffs or licks of any sort for the sake of comparison – only the dull E-major chord is played. The sounds are plain, no effects were added. Recorded with a Line6 POD v.01 (Amp-simulation: “Black Panel”, Drive: 2, Bass: 8, Mid: 10, Treble: 8, Channel-Vol: 10).
