Was hoping to get some insight as to what this black platform thing is under the saddle here. It looks like it goes all the way across the bridge and is slightly bigger than the bridge itself. I've only ever been exposed to the two pin style that mounts directly into the body, so I'm not sure if this is a mod or not.
Has anyone seen this before? Is it a factory rarity or something?
Guitar: Fender Jaguar, made in japan c.1993-1995ish.
Yeah. I bought one of those for $80. They are heavy. And need bodywork before paint. My cherry burst paint job has woodgrain texture. It was a mistake. However, everyone that sees it in person seem to love it. Those bodies don't require a neck shim either. I'm really satisfied with the ash body. My guitar stays in tune for quite some time. I actually like it better than my expensive guitars: fiesta red mustang Kurt signature series. And also my strat is a Yngwie Malmsteen signature series. Somehow, my jagstang plays better.
I'm the original owner of a 1996 Jagstang.
At one point, I replaced my bridge with a Gotoh "tune-o-matic" style.
The posts were too thin, and it required an electrical tape mod/etc, which I was never thrilled with. If fact it's never really played right since.
I'm sure there's someone that could make it work right, but it's not me, and I also now dislike the gold color that I chose at the time.
Does anyone know the part number for the original jag-stang saddle style bridge? I lost my original, and I would like to go back to stock instead of any drill/tape/too wide option.
I am aware of the flaws of the original but it worked well enough for the the type of music that I play with this guitar.
Is This it?
(Fender Part #: 003-5555-000, if the link is bad by the time you see this)
Thanks for any help.
