Kurt Cobain 3 Way Jaguar Toggle Control Plate for sale

66 posts in this topic

Hi, I know some people are looking for a 3 way Gibson style toggle control plate for Jaguars. I gave a guy who machines parts my actual control plate and a design that should be a very accurate copy of the ones on the kc jaguar tonight so in the next week or two we will have some extras, 9 to start we will produce more if people need them. If you would like one let me know. they might be stainless but dude might get some brushed chrome(he would have to order it) that is all, happy if we can help out not sure of price yet

I don't wanna be like Teh Kurdtz. He's a dead drug addict that was married to a lunatic.

I never read how Cobain's favorite Jaguar was wired. I know he had a few vintage and reissue Jaguars (vintages mostly for recording) but most concert footage I've seen had him with the "duct-taped" Jaguar(s). I only saw the one with the toggle mod when they did some small appearances on SNL & MTV.

I have Dimarzio replacements in my Jaguar reissue now but I'm thinking of possibly getting it routed and having some Duncan humbuckers thrown in... I already have the pickups and rings and a friend of a friend will route and rewire it for $125. We'll see.

Anyhoot, my point here... the Gibson style toggle seems like a cool mod on a reissue Jaguar "bar-guitar". If I'm out of rhythm and working off the bottom controls it would simplify things a bit.

Now the toggle is obviously in the place of where the neck and bridge on/off switches were. So I assume up is neck, center both, down bridge? Well... depends on how the toggle is set but you get my point.

I don't think anyone here really cares about this.

Also your name pisses me off. Learn grammar.

top is neck on/off

middle is bridge on/off

bottom is bass cut there is a cap attached to it it is my favorite one because it makes the guitar sound wimpy by cutting the bass

I don't hang out on this forum much. But I hate that a few people are Trolling at Kurt Cobain guitar mods.

This is a "Jag-Stang Forum" btw and that Jagstang is a Kurt Cobain signature model design in collaboration with Fender. Whether we like it or NOT. People will be attracted to this site. Mainly or in Partly due to Kurt Cobain.

For example if you happen to visit any Strat guitar forums. You'll always find guys trying to copy David Gilmour's Tuxedo Strat mods. Or copy any other famous guitar player's axe. If a Strat guy is making a David Gilmour pickguard replica, routed for that mini toggle switch. Nobody will grind him for that.

I admire "yourinalaundryroom" entrepreneurial spirit. He is just making it easy for people to get that custom Jaguar scratch plate for anyone who wants it. He might make a few bucks but really the demand for it isn't that high.

If you got to your local machine shop. If you don't know a guy in that shop. He would likely charge you an arm and a leg for a single piece of scratch plate. Or more likely get rejected for not being worth their time. Unless you make a minimum volume order of like 50 or 100 pieces.

Its probably because we've heard it all before and after a while the same old questions keep popping up. This is why the FAQ's were added but nobody seems to be too bothered to read em.

btw i have a jag-stang and its nothing to do with the fact our Curtis designed it. More due to i think its a cool guitar and can be modded to what i want out of it, not so i can have it the exact way mr Cobain had his.

Not to mention the fact that when new users sign up and immediately start flogging their wares it amounts to little more than spamming.

Yeah you know i love it on here when someone says "Hey I've done this to my Jaguar, or, I've done this to my Mustang or Jag-Stang, because I think its cool and it makes it my guitar."

Not "I've done this and put in these pick ups because Kurt Cobain did it and i want my guitars to look like his."

Does'nt happen very often though, not any more. :-hmmm

i can imaging that with a warm welcome people might post again.

getting the same topics is boring indeed.

but it happens on every form.

maybe your hanging around to long on this form,...so it gets bored every time with the same questions.

maybe its time to move on when you 'grow' out of this form.

generally speaking.

no offends.

btw.

16 year old kids doesn't have the same interest as 35 year old.

Gotta disagree...

Instead of new members creating the same topics over and over again, they should try using the 'search' function (which is easy to find AND easy to use. I've done it several times).

They are also more likely to get replies to existing threads (if they even need a reply) because there are already people subscribed to it.

It's not a matter of some people 'growing out' of a forum, it's the opposite: new arrivals should learn to appreciate established protocols.

After a while you will realize how irritating it is to read a subject heading 'has anyone ever done this???' and to go into the thread about some one saying about how they want to drop an SD JB into the bridge of their Mustang. Not inspired by Kurt, of course, they just REALLY like the sound of that pickup.

there should be a whole kurt's guitar section then.

he modified his guitars so there will always be questions about it.

after 16 years its apparently still a hot item.

its a moderators job to keep the form clean with no double post.(still no offends lol)

I think you'll find there already is and has been for some time. It took me all of a minute to find it using the search function.

Robb's and Nathan's arguments still stand, if Kurtz noobs are too lazy to look for stuff, then they shouldn't post at all.

NO OFFENDS LOL. (Whatever that means.)

but its the mustang section.

i meant index page.

and talking about kurt seems to offend people.

i see more 'lazy noobs' topics that aren't related to kurt,.....so i really don't see a problem.

what i meant was,..you don't have to respond to a topic you don't like.

and i do not agree or disagree.

but the topic came alive.

respect.

Like I say, doesn't take a genius to use the search function.

and talking about kurt seems to offend people.

Only when it fills the forum, which it does, because people don't use the search function.

i see more 'lazy noobs' topics that aren't related to kurt,.....so i really don't see a problem.

I wouldn't, if people didn't post unnecessarily and would just find what they want to find out about using the FUCKING SEARCH FUNCTION.

1) There's a Kurt section in the mustang forum

2) Try searching on google, or use the searchbar on here.

3) Yeah people seem to be into Kurts tone still, but stop being lazy, and look for the damn info yourself.

4) It is the moderators job to keep it clean, but it also helps if the people posting use common sense and use the SEARCH FUNCTION

5) What the fvck does no offends mean?
