    • Hi everyone! I've been "working on this build" for a long time but finally decided to get myself in gear and finish my Jaguar build. I'm pretty sure I have all parts needed for assembly, except my Mastery Bridge that was ordered today.  My question is about grounding points. I have a MIJ body that has conductive paint in the cavities, but it was a Stratosphere purchase, so everything is stripped out aside from the pickup foam. I'm reading mixed schools of thought on how/where to ground the electronics and was hoping for some help. Since the cavities are already painted, do I tie all grounds to a star point tied to the paint and run that to the output jack ground, or should I wire all grounds back to the bridge volume pot for a star there? If I go with a body point, what do you recommend and where? I've seen people use things that look like brass thumb tacks and the Fender diagram mentions glazier points, so should I follow their diagram to a "T" and go with glazier points in their locations? And lastly, I know the metal control plates tie grounds between components connected on that plate, but I assume you would still need to attache the plate to the star too, right?   I'm sorry for the wall of text on this. It's my first build, and first time using single coils with independent tone and volume per pickup, so my other guitars can't be referenced for best practice. I'm getting excited to finally putting this thing together and playing it after purchasing a body back in 2008 or 2009, but not finding an affordable neck that fit my spec for...a while.

    • I bought A Jaguar from a pawn shop as a project. It looks to have a old sammick neck that is stamped fender Jaguar. The numbers told me that the neck was used by fender in Korea during 1988 -96??? When I took The neck off which doesn’t have a truss rod and is broke. And clearly doesn’t belong to this guitar. There was a stamped date that said Feb 5 2019. What do I have
