  1. Last week
  2. I need help designing a custom wiring diagram for my offset series Mustang. I'm going to install two Seymour Duncan pickups-an Antiquity Mustang pickup in the neck and a JB Trembucker in the bridge. I want to retain the 3-way selector switch for pickup switching. I also want to one push-pull pot to split the humbucker (I want the single coil sound to leave the slug/inner coil turned on), and another push-pull to flip the two pickups out of phase with each other. I have looked over dozens of different wiring diagrams on Seymour Duncan's sit and others. I still haven't found one that fits my needs. Can anyone help me? I'm confident that if I had a wiring diagram I would be able to solder everything together well. I'm just iffy on how to connect everything...
  3. I managed to pick up one of the Mustang 90 guitars with a rosewood fretboard. I really dig the guitar. I actually like that they went with a hardtail bridge. I think for the money this is one of the best guitars you can buy. If you like the short scale Fender vibe, this will serve you well. I bought mine as a project guitar. I already replaced the cheap plastic nut with a Tusq nut. The new one sounds heaps better than before. Next, I stripped the electronics. Although I thought the original P90's didn't sound bad, I knew I wouldn't be keeping them. I'm currently researching wiring schematics, but I'm going to install a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and an Antiquity Mustang in the neck. I want to wire it up with push-pull pots so I can split the humbucker and flip the phase of the humbucker. Basically, I want the functionality of the Kurt Cobain Mustang's wiring, but I want to retain the 3-way selector. If anyone can help me design a wiring diagram, I would be in your debt! TLDR: The Offset series is a great buy! Please help me design a single + humbucker split coil/phase flip wiring diagram if you can!
  4. I want to install a hipshot B bender system on my fender offset reissue Mustang. Has anyone tried this or know if it will or won’t work, and why? Thanks!

  6. I've played a Squier Bullet Mustang HH for my first electric: It sounds brilliant. I say Mustang.
  7. The P90s will give quite a different sound. Revelation guitars have the Entwistle P90s, mind sounds amazing, it is a little more punchy and juicy tone.

  9. You could try this. Get hold of one of the springs used beneath a Strat term arm to tension it.Cut the spring in half.Pop it in the grub screw hole, cut side facing grub screw. Replace screw and tighten until arm is tensioned. Works for me (so far !)
  10. Hello! When i removed the bridge of my jaguar I found a surprise. how can i remove the rust without ruining the paint? Bo
  11. Ok, I got my hands on a CIJ Fender Jaguar circa '89-90 about six months ago and I dare say that I'm struggling to bond with it. I have had a lot of work done to it; Mastery Bridge, TremLok system, SD Jaguar Antiquities and I removed the plate with the 3 PUP switches and replaced it with 3 way switch. I originally got the guitar for it's shorter scale neck so I could have it tuned to F# standard as I often use a capo on the 2nd fret for vocal tunes. The action was surprisingly good with .009 strings but the tone was dreadfully "plinky" when tuned up that high. My guitar tech suggested we go the opposite way and set it up for Baritone (B to B). It sounded great like this but tuning became an issue, especially when playing live. I've now got it set to standard and whilst I can get some fairly cool tones at home it just sounds hollow and empty with very little sustain (even with Compressor!) whenever I use it for gigs. Very frustrating. My live set up is into a Vox AC30 with a bunch of pedals. I mostly use a very twanggy CV Tele that also has SD Antiquities in it. The Jag just sounds very small and inconsequential when compared to the tele. What can I do to bring this guitar alive??? Is there something I'm doing wrong???
  12. This is my personal JS build. Has a shortscale 22.5 /21 fret neck, like a jagmaster. Seymour Duncan hot rod pickup at the neck. Vintage '66 mustang bridge pickup. 500k volume and tone pots. Gotoh style bridge. It's really mean sounding with distortion. Really crisp and clear sound while clean. The paint job is what I call a "Black cherry metal flake" reverse burst. It flip/flops color. Looks black from a distance. I didn't want to alter an original jagstang. So, the best alternative was to build a clone.
  13. For those who want a custom build. For those who can't find a Jagstang. Why mess up an original? Build one.

  15. I just had the same buzz problem with my 2016 Jag Classic Player. The problem is the screws that adjust the intonation rattle. Mine did it on the 1st 2nd and 3rd string. What I had to do was get the springs out a a clicker pen and install them around the screws to put pressure on it. Great big pain in the butt but it worked.
  16. I'll probably just make your decision even more difficult. But the new 'Classic Vibe' models that were announced at NAMM are hitting stores right about now. I would wait until I could try some of those out before making a decision. There is a new 60's Mustang model that you might like. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MustCV60SB--squier-classic-vibe-60s-mustang-sonic-blue There are also new 60s style Jazzmaster and new 70s style Jaguar. The 'Classic Vibe' line from Squier has been a real fan favorite in the past but there are not many reviews of these new models out yet. The problem you will find with the jag-stang is it's somewhat over-priced due to being out of production and harder to find.
  17. Hi guys, i m going to buy this jaguar, what do you think about this mod?? Seymour Duncan hot for Jaguar, + p90 for jazzmaster Bog https://m.mercatinomusicale.com/my/preferiti.asp#.fmod_/ajax/ann.asp?id=6068252
  18. I've been trying to find a second guitar that is different to my Avri 52 Tele (family hand-down. Don't ask). I can't quite make up my mind to be honest and every day I think something else. I can't spend tons of money, but want a guitar that I love. Most of all, I want a fairly light-weight, not too massively big, short-scale guitar with a thin and narrow neck to give my small hands a chance of some faster playing. Below are my thoughts... Yes, I'd take a lovely Mustang if someone dropped one on my doorstep. But they tend to be quite a bit above my price range, too full on 'look at me' (race stripes, coloured headstock, or metallic colour), or look completely bland (latest models). So the only real option would be a Squier VM in red (not keen on the other colours). I would probably mod it. Jaguar: love them, but they are too big for little me. Full Stop. Jag-Stang: I might be the odd one out, but I love the shape. It's oddly female I think, which is rare with guitars. It's probably smaller and lighter than a Jag (still have to see them side by side) and has a smaller nut than the others. Not sure if the neck is even thinner than the SQ Mustang (anyone know?). Possibly a modding project, install different bridge pickup and a split push/pull thingy (never done that, mind). Red is a must for me. The guitar would fall within my budget with some searching and tough negotiation. Modding would have to come later. Btw, I don't care about Nirvana. Jagmaster: I'd so buy a cheap 24" scale reissue for modding as they look absolutely cool. Have I mentioned that my taste is odd? But unfortunately they are Big and Heavy. Not quite what I'm looking for I think. Music that I love: surf and 60s garage, sonic youth, Neubauten, old-school punk with rubbished guitars, jazz, The Ex, alternative kraut-brass section--sustain guitar bands, riot grrl bands. Plus French and German chansons, and African music with traditional string instruments. Right. What are your thoughts on my thoughts? Which guitar would you chose if you were me and liked the music that I like and you had a RI Tele already? By the look of it the choice is basically between a SQ VM Mustang and a Jag-Stang. (would not mind offers, provided they're in Europe, btw). Thanks guys.
  19. How do the reissue and original differ in weight? Basswood is lighter, isn't it? Asking as a fairly small woman where those 200gr extra might make a difference 😏
  20. It all depends on what you want. You could buy a used jagstang for less I’m sure. Kurt sent fender one of his mustang necks I believe for them measure and recreate it’s size. The Kurt jaguar has a 9.5 radius and larger nut so it wouldn’t be close to the jagstang neck. I have both the signature mustang and jaguar and the mustang neck is 7.25 radius and thinner. I think I read that finding a mustang reissue neck is the best bet if you can’t find a real jagstang neck. I’m not sure though.
  21. Hey, thanks a lot Daniel. Yes, I thought they might be very thin. I once trialed a Kurt Jag and really loved it. But they are a bit above my price range, and I'm not really into the colour. Unfortunately, there's no guitar shop around where I can actually compare the Kurt Jag with a normal Jag. And there's no shop around that has any Mustang. Warmoth,.. yes, I looked at that... I'm not sure I would dare to do such a project at this moment in time. And they don't seem to have a true to size Jagstang neck I think, provided they differ from mustang or jag necks to start with (my question above). And the pickguards, if in need of replacement would need to come from them as well. On the other hand I could make sure the humbucker could be split cabled (similar to the Player Jag). Just out of interest: how much do you think would such a self-build cost in the end?
  22. I never owned one but Kurt had small hands and liked thin necks. I have his signature mustang and it’s very thin, I heard jagstangs were about the same or more thin. As for the colors they came in fiesta red or Sonic blue with white pearl pickguards. I didn’t want to buy one online either without being able to see it in person, so I’m building one from warmoth.
  23. Hi guys, I keep on looking at Jag-stangs. I love Jaguars but find them a bit too big and too chrome-y, while Mustangs look a bit boring to me. The Jag-Stang on the other hand look like beauties to me, and seem to be exactly the kind of guitar I want. However, there's none available around here, thus I'll have to depend on buying online. Which isn't ideal. I know the fretboard is 7-25 radius, and it's got a 24"neck. Both exactly what I'm looking for. But how thick and wide is the neck, compared to modern Jags or Mustangs? I'm a bit worried that the neck will be a bit too thick and wide for my liking. Basically, being into quick playing and having small hands I'd be happier with a thin, narrow neck. Also, how heavy are these beauties? Finally, what were the original Japanese colour/pickguard combinations available?
