  2. Hi I’m looking for a simple diagram to split my JB on my Mustang and I can not find that diagram. Single coil switch = normal (unchanged) JB switch = Humbucker / Off / Split (Humbucker mode when switch is closest to the bridge) I don't want any extra switches or push pull and I don’t need out of phase. I can’t find this wiring is there anyone who can help me on this please? thanks Chris
  3. Last week
  4. This is a 2012 Cobain series mustang. It's not modified any further than Fender had it. They took apart 3 of Kurt's "in utero" tour era mustangs to make reissue guitars. Placid blue w/ competition stripes, Daphne blue, and fiesta red.
  5. Hi all. New to the forum. Thanks for all the great info here. I am a proud owner of a Jag-Stang circa 1996. I found so many tips that have been helpful in discovering things about this guitar that I never knew or was able to explore back in the day. So long story short....I pulled out my guitar to give it some attention. While restringing I discovered (or suspect) that the place I brought it last to have it set up may have messed with the saddle order on the bridge. I tend to use lighter strings .09 on the "e" that may have drove the shop crazy when trying to set it up. Part of that is my fault since I didn't know these guitars should really be using a minimum of .11's which would reduce the buzz and rattling. Is there a specific order that the saddles should be arranged on the bridge that allows for the proper bridge clearance at the break angle? Thanks!
  6. Nice to see you have the correct bridge. Nice Stang!
  7. My 2012 Kurt Cobain series mustang. I used to also have a daphne blue clone that I built. And a silver M.I.M. mustang 90. Now, all I own are: 2012 fiesta red shown above, 2015 Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster, and my home made jagstang.
  8. I just added tortoise shell tuner buttons that match the pickguard
  9. This is a recent pic of my Jagstang. I added a zebra pickup at the bridge.
  10. I am a luthier though. I built my jagstang. The body is made of Ash wood. A little heavy. However, it sounds great. I already had fender mustang parts. Which are the same as jagstang hardware. (I did add 500k pots) The neck came from a jaguar.(no shim needed perfect fit) Of course, I used a Gotoh tune-o- matic bridge. Now, it has a zebra pickup at the bridge and a Seymour Duncan hotrod pickup at the neck. Sounds pretty mean. All I was saying is: why alter an original? I build custom guitars on the side for some extra cash. If someone wants a personalized jagstang, I am available. I also wish Fender or Squier would make new ones with affordable prices. Then, original ones can be left alone. And we can customize the rest. EMG pickups on a jagstang? Nice. I thought of doing that. How's the sound? I decided to not use activ pickups. I always liked zebras. And never worry about bringing an extra 9v battery.
  11. Hey Mad Mike....All I was saying about instead of altering an original: I build guitars to whatever someone wants.
  12. Now, it has a zebra humbucker at the bridge. I find Photobucket annoying. So, unfortunately, I can't add a pic of how it looks now.

  14. Hello! I'm not familiar enough with the Jaguar wiring to give any specific recommendations. Are you trying to get back to the "stock" switch functionality or change the functionality of the switch to something else? In general, when looking for schematics, I start at https://images.google.com. You might find something that meets your requirements doing that. Below is just an example of what can be found.
  15. This is my first time ever posting on this forum. I'd say I'm pretty good with the soldering iron but I have no idea how the circuit in my jag works. I was wondering if this circuit would be possible to do and if so, maybe someone who knows what they're doing could design a diagram for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
  16. i just bought a chinese ,,squire stratocaster, vintage tuners on it, sounds huge and appears to be an 2008 model, but what,an whats it worth..?one ply thick pickguard,..8 screws.heavy on the clearcoat,looks 50 years age,gold coloured..serial number starts with cg,an goes on..cgrg08,designed an backed by fender,it sounds good or better than first classic vibe 50,s i had once..one normal string tree,and no fender logo on saddles etc..what do i have. i paid 70.00 an is well worth it it seems,nothing cheap about it,all is great..very hard to decode,or has someone changed something, sadles an input jack showing wear,all else is beautiful..somebody help..???
  17. I'm a lurker, but was curious if anyone on here may have purchased a Jagstang from Guitar center in Livonia Michigan around December of 2017 or January of 2018. Fiesta red RH, all stock. Thanks
  18. Some more pics of my freshly modded Mustang with modern TOM bridge, locked tremolo, lowered switches, fully shielded, 500k pots and Duncan JB humbucker .
  19. Finally a Mustang again, just finished the mods! 🤘 Fender Mustang (Cobain mods) Mustang with TOM bridge and JB installed
  20. I have seen in my telecaster that the pickups have these small rubber like tubes that go onto the screws that help adjust the height/spacing. Maybe these will work? https://www.amazon.com/Fender-Pickup-Mounting-Tubing-Electric/dp/B000B5L2OC/ref=asc_df_B000B5L2OC/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312157869747&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10046520680568862735&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9026545&hvtargid=pla-458146202865&psc=1
  21. Hi all. i want to wire my new pickups DP175 on neck and SH4 on bridge position. i want to maintain the neck pickup selector as original but the bridge one as : neck-both-bridge and adding a push-pull on the volume pot to split the humbucker. i have draw this on the pictural below… What do you think about it ? is it possible ?
  22. Probably too late but I have a 94 MIJ Jazzmaster and the neck is awesome, very thin
  23. finally back at it here, so i figured i'd update massively. My original jag-stang sits taken apart while the new body was made. I ended up getting the Koa/Ebony warmoth neck. We're going with a blue burst paint job on the front and likely staying close to natural wood on the back. Plan on doing a laser etched image of my daughter on the back. Putting the hawaiian islands on the headstock. Body/belly contour Arm/elbow contour possibly a strat-like cable jack where it goes in at an angle as opposed to jutting straight out I went to see it last week and i'm pretty happy overall. At the state we're at, i have to find someone to do the laser etching. We're also still very much interested in the wiring aspects and ideas, especially now that it's 10 years later, since it is possible new things have come out that might change up how we'd do it now vs back then. For a refresher: white stock switches being swapped out for black Volume/tone pots being swapped out for 500k pots Volume pot will be push/pull switch Black TB-5 going into the bridge Black JB Jr going into the Neck Orange Drop 0.22 going on to the tone Wiring for two 3-position switches: Switch 1: Pickup Selector (TB-5/Both/JB Jr) Switch 2: Series/Split/Parallel Push/Pull: Phase Selector (Volume POT) Wiring for three 3-position switches if we can manage it: Switch 1: Series/Split/Parallel, JB Jr Switch 2: Series/Split/Parallel, TB-5 Switch 3 (would need to be added): Pickup Selector (TB-5/Both/JB Jr) Push/Pull: Phase Selector (Volume Port) New possible addition: I was tuned in to the StellarTone ToneStyler product right around when i started this project, and while i haven't touched the project in years until now, it still seems like an interesting option. I'll continue to look into it but would still love to hear ideas
  24. Hello all. I found some great info on this forum recently and I just thought I would share some more. I recently acquired a 69 Mustang and wanted to convert it to Hardtail. It already came with the Mastery bridge so huge win there. I saw some youtube videos of people removing the springs and adding unsightly washers to the tailpiece / vibrato (legs?). I wanted to find a better and more stable solution. i ended up finding hex screws and lock washers at Home Depot that did the job perfectly. Photos can be found here. 1969 Hardtail Conversion Photos I thought it would be a help to someone looking to find the same solution since it took me a good while to find these screws at the store. I also flipped the tail piece to be able to feed the strings directly through the tailpiece instead of doing the wrap around. The break angle isn’t great but with 11 gauge strings it feels wonderful. happy playing
  25. The only thing I can think of is a noise gate pedal. That might help you out. Otherwise, it might be easier to mark down the settings of your pedals and equipment to quickly dial things back when switching guitars.
  26. Sounds like you have the real thing. I bought one way way back when at Guitar Center new. Mine had the gold hardware and it did have the 30th anniversary gold plate on it. It was a great guitar. I was hasty and didn't want to take the time to fix the bridge issues I was having. I really played hard back then and I would knock my strings off a tad on the old style bridge and the type of music I was playing I couldn't afford to go out of tune so I swapped for a tele. One of my biggest regrets, equipment wise. I sure wish I had it back. Hope you enjoy it! It's a gem and a really rare find.
  27. Anyone have a tip or suggestion for a pedal or device to balance the extreme differences between a HB guitar and a Jaguar or Strat? If I get everything sounding just right for one, it gets really frustrating when I need to swap guitars in the middle of a set when I wasn't planning on it. Any ideas?
