It's been a while since I posted a question about my Jag.
I have a 2004 AV jag, Oly white.
I got a pro set-up last december. He took out 2 of 4 shims, lowered the nut, truss adjustment, adjusted pick-up height and most importantly replaced the bridge with a mustang bridge.
Not only did he replace the bridge, but he also made collars to go around the bridge posts to stop it from moving. Thus relieving intonation problems (like taping but more solid).
The guitar now plays much better than it did. However, I think i preferred the tone of the guitar before he changed anything!
My question is, do you think the mustang bridge could have anything to do with the overall tone of the Jaguar? Could it be the collars? Or is it something simple like the pick-up height??
Any and all replies received gratefully.
P.S. This is going to p155 some of you off, it p155ed me off anyway.
While working on the guitar, the guy dropped a chisel on it! It took a lump out of the lower horn, which he filled and painted to match the colour. It still has a slight dimple and is very slightly discoloured around the area. And get this, he wouldn't give me any sort of a discount. Never going back to that guy, even if he is the only one i know of in this town. Aggghhhh
