  1. Yesterday
  2. I noticed a few had been registered, so I imagined things might be picking up here. 🙂
  3. Still waiting on mine...Ordered within an hour of preorders going live and ...nothing... lol
  4. Last week
  5. Hi! I'm new to the forum so I'm sorry if I did something wrong posting this... I found a good 1997 MIJ Jag-Stang at the price of 1000 euros, all original, and I was wondering about what's better between the new ones MIM and the old MIJ in terms of sound and price value. I've never owned a Jag-Stang and I'm looking forward to buy one, I don't know if the old ones sound good. I've been told by someone that they sounded very bad (but I'm pretty diffident about that) and at the same time I think that now, with time, the old ones from the 90s MIJ will increase a lot their value. Can you suggest me what's better between the two? Thank you!

  7. It looks like there are quite a few out there now. Let's see them! http://www.lowecustomguitars.com/wp-content/gallery/Image-Hosting/IMG_E0277.JPG http://www.lowecustomguitars.com/wp-content/gallery/Image-Hosting/IMG_E0280.JPG http://www.lowecustomguitars.com/wp-content/gallery/Image-Hosting/IMG_E0278.JPG http://www.lowecustomguitars.com/wp-content/gallery/Image-Hosting/IMG_E0279.JPG
  8. I have the exact same ‘65 Mustang. Did you buy those Kluson 6-In-Line Locking Revolution Series F-Mount Tuners and did they work without drilling new holes?
  9. Hi all, This looks like a great forum! I recently bought a Squier Classic Vibe Jazzmaster. I have not bought a new guitar in perhaps 15 years and was amazed at the quality for a cheap instrument. My friend gave me some American Vintage 65 Jazzmaster pickups he had lying about to upgrade however I have to say I quite like the stock pickups. My question is just are AV65 pickups significantly better quality and will I find a distinct tonal difference or should I just stick with the stock ones? If I had not got the AVs I would be happy with the stock ones but of course now I am intrigued to see if there is a difference! If I soldered I would do it myself and see what I prefered but I don't so deciding if worth the money and time to get someone to do it. Btw I play jazzy blues stuff like T-Bone Walker and some surfy stuff. Thanks in advance!
  10. Been playing my classic player Jaguar HH for years, and I still really want a Jag-stang. I think all the Fenders one simply put are crap and I'd rather build my own. I am eyeing up ordering a body and neck from Warmoth, and want some opinions about how I should spec it. Body I'm painting the guitar myself, in an old chevy colour called Ermine white, and I am putting a silver pearl pickguard on it. I am looking at buying locally some vintage Dimarzio dual sound humbuckers, to do an HH setup in this guitar complete with coil tapping and all that fun stuff. I think I want to angle both humbuckers (pickguards are only $33, so if I hate it it's cheap to replace, and universal routing). Neck CBS Mustang/Jaguar spec, 24" scale, 22 frets, obviously stuff. I'm thinking flame maple with a black ebony board, mother of pearl dot inlays, wide & tall stainless frets, Gotoh/grover tuner size, a 10-16" fretboard radius with the largest nut available (1-11/16") and with a clear gloss finish over it all. Now getting my specs aside, I am not sure which bridge I should opt for, a Mustang or a Tune-o-matic bridge. I have an old Adjust-o-matic bridge from my Classic Player Jaguar sitting around, since I converted my Jaguar to a staytrem. I don't know how much vibrato I'm going to use on this guitar, but I'd still like to have it there. With the 10-16" compound radius, 1-11/16th nut, and a TOM being 12" radius from what I understand, what would the best choice be? Thank you in advance
  11. Hey, i just wanted to chime in that one thing i’ve tried when going for something vaguely similar was putting my jag-stang pickups out of phase and turning the amp up to get some more dirt on it. I felt that sound had some of the really pretty strange kind of ‘something” to be specific… But i’ve been doing engineering stuff for a long, long time and eventually was messing with phase on some instruments recorded with multiple mics and the thought occurred that a part of the sound that i noticed and felt was present might possibly have some strange comb filtering/phase stuff from microphones not quite in phase…and i think that helps as well, and that theory was somewhat confirmed years later as i came across the multitracks for the b-side MV and on that one Mr. Albini definitely just had multiple mics on the amp while purposely ignoring the 3:1 “rule” and using the timing differences to work like a very strange eq. And then also there is a fair amount of bleed in those recordings and the original “scratch” guitar tracks (tracked live) kinda bled into the other instruments’ tracks and they were pretty out of tune (i was surprised!) and that might add a weird ghostly/out of phase type thing (i was also fascinated to (FINALLY!) figure out about the bass tone on that album…i had talked to several people and mostly they talked about using a very short (highpassed?) delay…but after hearing the multitracks, i think it is absolutely from the bass bleeding into the drum tracks (and also the multi mic on the amp, but the weird airiness i believe is the bleed into the drums.) sorry for going on and on and on, this is a topic i’ve been fascinated with for a while and i’m at work and super bored and a bit “groovy” feeling right now…lol. I hope it might be of some use possibly. Cheers!
  12. I think the MIJ is the better option. In the future, I can imagine the MIJ being worth more than the reissues, as well as Japanese guitars tend to be much higher quality than Mexican.
  13. Hey, regarding the "American made", you're correct about the only ones being American were Cobain's. I'm unsure why they called it American made, I'm sure they meant Mexican made.
  14. Sorry, I didn't see this until now. It sold on Reverb this morning. Was it you that bought it?
  15. I am definitely interested. Contact me by private message. Thanks lot.

  17. Hi! I have one you can buy, I pulled it off my 1997. It is very yellow, slight warped. Are you interested?
  18. Recently bought a new Squier Jaguar from Guitar Guitar. Seems, although I could be wrong, that when I go through a pedal, and use the rhythm circuit on the guitar, the volume and tone knobs down by the bridge, don't do anything anymore. How do i decrease the volume when using the rhythm circuit please? As the two little wheels seem to just affect the tone.
  19. I have a Squier short-scale Jag bass. I would like to buy a case. I'm not seeing anything specifically made for it. Anyone ever come across one?
  20. Hello, I need a replacement pickguard for my 1996 MIJ Jag-Stang. I was hoping Fender would sell me one from the MIM production line however they told me it wouldn’t fit because Japan uses the metric system so the new Jag-Stang would be slightly different. Instead they recommended that I buy on from WD Music. I contacted that vendor because the description was confusing but I got a much more confusing answer : « It [the pickguard] is made to fit the American made Jag-Stang, It will not fit the Japanese models. The Japanese models are not consistent from year to year especially the 90’s » I thought there was only two Jag-Stang made in the US. One delivered to Cobain and the other kept by Fender. Am I wrong ? Was there really a US manufactured Jag-Stang at some point ? Does anyone has an original pickguard for sale? Willing to pay a good price for it. Or maybe a place where I can get one to recommend ? any experience buying one from WD ? thanks Pat.
  21. Hello, I recently purchased a MIJ V S/N. What's the best way to check if the pickups are original ? What about the rest of the guitar ? Thanks Patrick
  22. Hi All, I've been looking to buy a Jag-Stang for years now and I finally found a 1996 in good shape and reasonable price but I sees that Fender is about to release the 30th anniversary version. Should I wait or go vintage ? All opinions welcomed Thanks
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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?
  26. 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)?
  27. 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 😬
