My new Jag arrived!! (Warning: Graphics intensive!)
Posted 10 June 2006 - 11:27 PM
I couldn't resist to swap the necks to see how it'd look on my sunburst:
Fender Jaguar Duo:
(yeah yeah, I was lazy to put up the strings after the swap *lol*)
I know it looks a little weird with the mismatched neck/body combination *lol* I'll probably switch them back next time. However, not sure whether there's a difference in specs in the necks but the block inlay neck is like 0.5mm (or less) wider than the other neck...and *Jaguar purist look away* ....I sanded it a little to get it to fit into my sunburst neck pocket Also, I will be changing the CIJ pickups to AV reissue ones like what I did for my sunburst Jag. However, I'll probably be doing some intensive modifications to one of them to make it my main/stage guitar (adding a 3rd pickup, 3-way toggle switch, different wiring, etc). Judging from the difficulty of getting the OW Jaguar with block inlays, I'd probably be doing the mods on the sunburst one. Any suggestions otherwise?

binding and blocks on the sunburst is cool, but you must swap the necks back, the white one is just way too pretty with it's original neck.

Oh, before I forget...I must really thank Lambtron for the link to the Japanese store that sells that Jag I've gone through lots of trouble (and money) to be able to get hold of that Jag since the shop doesn't deal with non-Japanese/international orders. Let's just say that I had to pay a middleman to have it domestically shipped, and EMSed to my country (Singapore) You wouldn't wanna know the damage done to my wallet, fellas *LOL* But without Lambtron pointing me in that direction, I wouldn't be able to own a lefty jaguar with block inlays (save for the vintage ones)

I am curious as to the increased costs, though. I'm not 100% sure on this, but ishibashi and taniguchi might be part of the same parent company, and as such, the people I spoke to when buying a guitar didn't charge me a fortune (taking into account shipping, etc). I don't think anyone at taniguchi speaks English, though there are people at Ishibashi that certainly do.
On a side note where did you get a duvet set in the Spetsnaz colour scheme?

By the way, Lambtron...do vintage lefty jags come with a mute as well? And are the mutes made left-handed too? I'm contemplating to add a mute to my white jag to complete the look
As for the artic camo 'duvet', it's just a huge piece of cloth with a camo design that I bought from a local DIY store that sells all kinds of cloth, materials, accessories, etc for your own handiwork. I don't sleep on it though

I've never seen a lefty mute, and I'm quite sure none were ever made. Seeing as even tailpieces were righthanded, I'd assume that if any lefty wanted a mute, only right hand versions would be available.
Rick's the expert on vintage jags here, but I'm sure even he'd tell you that he's never seen one.
Personally I wouldn't look for one in the first place. I can appreciate your wanting to tinker around with your new baby, but it'll probably just be a passing fad that you'll eventually grow out of anyway. Forgive me if that sounds patronising.
