  1. Last week
  2. Just bought a Noventa Jazzmaster. Loving it. Not so keen on the black pickup covers. Anyone know exactly what type of P90s are in the new Noventa Jazzmasters? Dimensions in particular so I can research aged white covers. Thanks.
  3. I think the problem is not fret buzz. The mustang bridge buzzes for some reason. I had a 2021 American Mustang, and I noticed that it was buzzing at the bridge when unplugged. I sent it back. I just got a Squire vintage modified Mustang, and it has the exact same buzz at the bridge. It’s not the frets.
  4. Earlier
  5. hi , so I have massive background buzz yes, i did solder it to the back of the volume pot, and the buzz was eliminated so i guess its meant to be there, just that it got loose from age, i guess (i dismantled it more, and yes it goes to the bridge/grounding) did you have buzz too?
  6. I just bought a second hand jag and mine has the same unattached black wire. One end is under the pic guard, so can I assume it’s attached to the bridge and it now needs to be re soldered to the bottom of the volume pot. ( that’s what it looks like it the diagram)?
  7. So YOU'RE the one who ended up with that body! I'd seen it, but I wasn't going to pay what a new Warmoth painted body would cost for a modified original! All those options sound nice, but remember if you're gonna go with the JM set you're gonna need to do some routing 😬
  8. It was a SH-4 in both, Kurt Cobain's, and the KC Signature. I'm pretty sure the strings are aligned, even on Kurt's. Kurt had a Gotoh bridge, which are modeled after Gibsons. Fender's Adjusto-matic is also modeled after a Gibson ABR-1.
  9. What I mean is that you still have the 2 on/off/on switches meaning that you still have the in and out of phase options BUT you have 2 push pull pots to coil split both humbuckers. So what would the wiring for this look like?
  10. Background: Tele player here. I am looking to give offsets another try but I'm a little scared. I once owned a cheap fender blacktop jaguar and it was an awful guitar. Although it was cheap, the major issue with it was that the neck pocket was completely flat and it would not intonate properly(past the twelve fret it was way sharp and the action was way too high). No amount of playing with the truss rod, bridge, or saddles could fix this, even when it was taken to a professional. Since then, I have decided to never buy a bolt on guitar with a raised bridge. Still, they look so cool and I can't help but want one. I also think they have the best sounding trems. Question: Are there any offset guitars that fender currently sells that come with a properly angled neck pocket? I noticed they fixed the saddles on a lot of these guitars in recent years and I am wondering if they have fixed the neck pocket angle on any of them as well. I know you can shim the neck, but I don't' want to stick a piece of plastic or wood in the neck pocket of my guitar, I want one with the neck pocket cut properly or I don't want one at all.

  12. I just purchased a previously disfigured CIJ Jagstang body that was refurbished by a reputable luthier in my area. The original owner must have found the slab body to be uncomfortable, because he ripped it down to bare wood (with a bear claw, I presume) and attempted to carve out belly and forearm contours… Needless to say, he did not succeed in his mission. He did, however, succeed in making a hot mess out of this guitar. The deep scratches and gouges were filled in and sanded back. The contours were not able to be repaired, but they were evened out and sculpted as close to current Jaguar profiles as possible. Hey, Don’t get me wrong: A stock body would be great, but contours would be the first thing I’d add if I was designing my own, and since it wasn’t stock and heavily modded, it was priced as such… so double bonus there!! There was a previous client interested in it and he requested a Desert Sand Nitro paint job, but ended up backing out once the paint was on. And now she is mine! I pick it up next week!! The clear coat has not been shot yet, soooo…. My question is: Should I repaint it in a more traditional color way, or stick with the Sand and do a Duo-sonic style treatment on it… Maybe single coils and an anondized pickguard? I do have the following pickups in house: cool rails, hot rails combo SD Jazz Model (N), Pearly Gates (B) Pair of SD Hot for Jaguar’s… that could be fun. I do have a pair of Lollar Charlie Christians sitting around that I’ve been saving for my first Tele build… if I want to get crazy. I also have a pair of JMascis JM pups in the cupboard too, if I want to get REALLY crazy! Thoughts??
  13. I didn't even know them. Oh, it will be interesting! о.о
  14. I'll be lurking around here again for awhile, I'm going to be updating my setup guide for the Jag-Stang in a hard-rock context, and hopefully soon re-making my Jag-Stang/Mustang vibrato setup video as it's time I did a newer, HD version with some of my updates.

  15. I’m looking at buying a Olympic White Fender jaguar, made in Japan in 2002. All original parts. Is £700 a good price for this?
  16. Hi all - new Jaguar owner here. So apologies for any newbie-ness in what follows, but I have looked and looked and I can't seem to find any simple answers to the following. I have just bought a MIM Jaguar Player and would like to switch out the tone/volume knobs and the 3-way selector knob. Clearly the vol/ton pots have set-screw solid shafts, about 5mm in width. The 3-way selector looks similar to a tele selector. So - can anyone advise which Fender knobs I should be looking for? - ideally I want cream witch hats and a cream/chrome selector. All are black currently. Do Jazzmaster knobs fit (only cream witch hats I can find are expensive '1965 vintage Jazzmaster')? or Tele knobs? Or both? Or does it all vary? Grateful for help as I am currently somewhat lost in mm/inch/imperial/metric/split/solid/spline confusion! Luke
  17. My first JM. Squier J Mascis. Love it, better late than never. Roller TOM and Dynaguide string tree (not in picture) are the only mods. /z
  18. Hey there. Have you figured it out yet? I came looking for the same thing. I can follow a diagram but I have very little to know idea how it all works. Don't care either, just want it to be done. The electronics always evade me.
  19. I have a doubt about the color of the Fender Mustang Competition Burgundy Blue. The body color is Lake Placid Blue, but I would like to know the color of the racing stripes ... daphne blue? sonic blue?. Thankful for your help.
  20. You did such a good work to describe right way, I have Bosch JS470E to cut right way with perfect shape. I think it might be useful to done the thing.
  21. Thank you, Now its all clear, I was confused in bridge pickup.
  22. Hi all What an amazing selection of suppliers of Jaguar build parts there seem to be in the USA - does anyone know of any decent suppliers in the UK as the import duties will put the build price too high... Thanks!
  23. Hi everyone, I have just purchased a Kurt Cobain Jaguar (NOS) and love it except for one pretty big issue. The G, B, and top E strings have little sustain and sound a bit like a sitar. I have been doing my own set-ups for years and went through all the usual issues but all the frets are fine, the nut is good and the action is great. The break angle at the back of the bridge is fine. If I pull the strings out of the grooves in the saddles and rest them on top of the saddles they sound fine and give the amount of sustain I'd expect. This led me to try raising the bridge which did not solve the issue and just affected the action. The guitar has a Gotoh tune o'matic bridge. I really do not know what to do, this guitar has taken me months of waiting to get and if I have to send it back it will be many more months before I can get another. Has anyone had any similar problems or know something that I am missing? Thanks
  24. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge re Kinman pickups. Im thinking of buying Kinman jazzmaster pickups. My friends has a set of the Kinman fatmaster pups in his AVRI reissue. They sound awesome and I found some on reverb but then I noticed they are also selling kinman jazzmaster surfmasters and they sound maybe better. Anyone got an opinion. Thanks. They are gojng into my AVRI as well. Current pickups are sweet but too noisy...i find them distracting..thanks
  25. Other than Warmoth and Rosser, is there anyone else that makes a body? Just curious. Thanks!
  26. It's the groundwire connected to the bridge.
