yay, just aquired myself a 1998 jagstang - what a great guitar! Funnily enough i was actually shopping for a Fender Cyclone, but then i tried this guy's jagstang at my guitar lesson, and it had the best neck and balance of any guitar i ever played. So that night i started bidding on Ebay!
Here's what i ended with with http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 7402901038
Now sorry to you colour debating people, but this Jagstang is surf-green - it's exactly the same colour as my friend's Surf-green Fender Venus (which she got personally given by Courtney Love..b*tch!!). Bridge is also locked down and did the tape mod, so no complaints with regards to tuning/intonation.
I love the black pickups, though i dont like the Super Distortion - sounds good distorted, but clean it's got way too much bass and mids, and it's not F-spaced to the strings completely miss nearly every pole piece. I think this is the reason i cant get good harmonics on this guitar.
Thinking of replacing it with a SD JB (more balanced), and rewiring the selector switches so neck one is pickup selector (single/both/hum) and bridge one does some humbucker switching (coiltap/parellel/series). Anyone tried this??
Seems an obvious mod, and would make this into pretty much a perfect versatile guitar!
Also anyone know how a SD JB would sound, compared to a super distortion??
