hi robert.I use my own wiring. it a system we develope to use the Jag neck pickup for bass lines and bridge pick up for guitar. best way to explain it is that i'm using a 'lead' circut as guitar and 'rhytme' as bass.
I'm not sure wether im gonna make it look just like Jag, probably gonna use my immagination and any suggestoin I get to innovate new switches location and appearence. 2 circuits. everything is an option right now.
I'm really surprised with this guitar.
all the japs jags i played had an flat uninteresting sound to my taste,
far out and away from the 63 Jag I had.
they looked the same-sound is way off to my opinion.
i think the pick ups on them are not good at all. they feel cheesy too.
this guitar has new pickups too but the hambackers kind of return some of that old sound i got used to. also it is big and robust and maintain the tune perfect, which ever tune I use, even better than that '63!
I haven't gigged with it yet, but i can tell it will be great for live/ i don't know if it has rich enough sound for our next album. after the hopefully succesful opertaion i'm going down to LA to record a little with it and hear it's worth for real.
don't have hi expectaion or anything, but i was anti-jap guy for all this years, now im living with one - and as the picture suggest, im quite happy with it...
Jag and drums!
