  3. 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 so
  4. 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
  5. Last week
  6. Other than Warmoth and Rosser, is there anyone else that makes a body? Just curious. Thanks!
  7. Earlier
  8. It's the groundwire connected to the bridge.
  9. I don't have a stock Jag-Stang body to check, but either to one of the bridge studs or to the vibrato.
  10. This is my Jag I'm needing help with Hoping somebody has some advice on the following, as all of the set-up guides I've seen refer to traditional models, and not this 'classic player' version I have (MIM circa 2014, with the key factory adjustments being: Adjusto-Matic bridge with floating tremolo tailpiece, a 9.5 fingerboard radius and an improved neck pocket with increased back-angle for improved stability and sustain. The tremolo tailpiece is also closer to the bridge). I've decided to give the guitar a proper set-up as I never did when receiving it earlier this year and couldn't
  11. Hello! Not enough info/photos provided in your post to be much help.. But here's my guess. The double humbucker and black color MIJ jaguar I think are more likely around 2010. As most 90s mij jaguars were '66 and '62 reissues with more vintage colors available. Again this is mostly a guess with this amount of available info.
  12. Hi! It's possible use this wiring diagram with conventional pots (no concentric)?
  13. Hi, Has anyone an idea how you can date a MIJ Fender Jaguar HH special? It has a U-serial number, but those seem to be used in 1995-1996 and in 2010-2011. I already removed the neck, but there is no date on it only 3 stamps “JG-HH”, “N” and “BLK”. in the neck pocket there are 2 stamps “JG-HH” (big and light black) and a red stamp “23.6.29”. The last one looks like a date stamp, but I cannot link it to 1995 or 2010. Any specialists here that can give any advice? Many thanks in advance! Joe
  14. your mods looking, great mate!! if you don't mind, do you have the wiring diagram for the mods? I kinda want to change my pickup selection method, but I'm still a newbie about wiring and soldering. cheers mate
  15. Thanks so much! I agree about the tortoise shell. The white pearl pickguard is definitely nice, too, but I'd wanted tortoise shell on this for a long time.
  16. Hi, Does anybody know where I can learn the production numbers on the 2012-2014 Fender Select Series guitars and specifically on the 2013 Select Jazzmaster? I just acquired a 2013 Cayenne Burst Jazzmaster in a trade and want to learn more about it. Appears 2013 was the only year for them and I saw one Facebook comment that only 250 were made. Sadly, I don't play electric, so anybody interested in owning this cool guitar it's for sale or trade for maybe an acoustic-electric. Except for two tiny chips on the rear bottom it's in unplayed near mint condition. Thanks, GVS
  17. Your guitar is looking great! I've always been a sucker for that tortoise shell pickguard on the sonic blue jagstangs. And your new set of controls are such a natural fit that it looks like the guitar should be built that way. Well done!
  18. Several years ago I posted about how I was kind of disappointed in my Jag-stang. The output seemed kind of weak, the intonation wasn't great and the wolf tones on the low E string around the 12th fret were horrible. I recently decided to just see what I could do with it. I was nervous to mod it, since I really wanted to keep all the original parts. So, I decided to just do a full swap of the electronics, pickguard included. While it still has some issues that I haven't been able to figure out, swapping out the pickups was by far the best decision I've made in terms of upgrading. The intonation
  19. (04/07/2021) I bought a Boss RV-6 , worked for a few minutes, power fading in and out, tried a new 9v, same thing. Going to try a 110vAC/9v DC power cord.. Will get back with results...
  20. Thai is amazing. This is literally the solution I’ve been looking for. I’ve never understood whe. Fender didn’t offer springs that were sized so that the serve this same purpose.
  21. Actually the "Trem Lok" button locks the tremolo from going UP. How it works is it slides between the pressure plate and tailpiece frame to block the vibrato from going sharp if a string breaks, disabling the floating feature but allowing the guitar to soldier on through the song/gig until the broken string can be fixed including downward travel for vibrato if needed. What's funny is I wound up disabling mine on my Jaguar.....it's never needed it, and I still beat the bar like a red-headed stepchild on that guitar.
  22. Hey all! I can't believe I forgot to respond to this, but I put a Squier MI Indonesia Jaguar neck on the guitar, set it up, and it plays wonderfully! The intonation is perfect and the action is just how I like it. I think next I'll shield the cavities since it's a bit noisy. Thanks for all the help!
  23. Hey, just bought a limited edition lake placid blue Johnny Marr Jag, thanks for this thread!💙
  24. JT-95 is just the Jag-Stang's model name. No matter the year, it's always JT-95. Same with other Japanese Fenders, Mustang is MG-69, Strat is ST-62, Jaguar is JG-66. It's just how Fender Japan marks their models
  25. I know this is kinda late, but search up "microphonic pickups in guitars". This problem is the reason why Eddie van halen dipped his pickups in hot wax and "wax potted" his pickups. Essentially some of the windings in a pickup may contain a few loose strands of copper deep inside it. When playing with high gain, small sounds get pretty amplified and that's what causes the screeching sound. The same way harmonics and feedback are amplified through high gain, the screeching happens because of any loose windings. The solution is dipping the entire pickup in hot melted wax and letting it harden. H
  26. Hello, I am just wondering if a "VALCO 'AIRLINE' VVHSC PICKUP" (bridge,) will fit into the humbucker slot. I am unsure as I am aware they are quite tall - similar to a Les Paul's humbucker. I know the stock humbuckers aren't that popular, neither are the airline pickups, but I just enjoy the sound of them. Thanks.
  27. I’m having a problem with my 65 reissue mustang I never had this problem before but wether I tune the guitar to power chords or open chords vice versa when one is in tune the other is not I use to have a snappy buzzing sound on the mid to higher frets but I put a new bridge piece in and adjusted the pieces that hold the strings and it helped a little but everything is still out of tune and it has new strings on it that I’ve already stretched and had on it for a little bit now what is the issue with that? Idk what to do here does anyone know?
  28. yoh man im building ajgstang of my own and was wondering what neck to use a strat neck or mustang neck
