  1. Today
  2. Last week
  3. Im trying to find one of these mine was lost in 2006 and would love to have it or another identical to the deluxe orange model.
  4. Earlier
  5. Well the him seems to have disappeared, don't know why but I ain't complaining. The next problem to solve is that the passive mode does not seem to work, I only get sound when switched to active.
  6. I recently purchased a new squire classic vibe jag and while inspecting the shielding I noticed that there is no shielding or grounding wire in the tremolo cavity (the other cavities appear to have shielding paint) - from all the info I’ve seen on forums & YouTube , the shielding and grounding is said to be needed for the trem area as well. The trem cavity does not even have a connecting drilled pathway to the other cavities. Is shielding not needed with newer/classic vibe jags? - thanks!
  7. This is probably an old chestnut, but I have not overcome yet. I picked up a CIJ Jag bass guitar which has had a rough time in its previous life. I removed the neck, and looked at the prospect of giving it a coat of paint to restore to original condition. I filled the holes and dents with auto body filler ( yes they were that bad) and resprayed with a coat of auto acrylic black, which was the original color. The wiring looked a bit daunting for a nubie to tackle, so I removed the pick guard and control plates and made a small pile of electronics and masked them up ready for painting. The result turned out great, the only problem I have now is the earth loop, I downloaded the wiring diagram and every thing is correct no loose connections. This was there before painting, but I thought I would solve the problem later. Has anyone any suggestions on what to check, I have ordered some conductive paint to see if that fixes it.
  8. Hi Kids! I'm new here. I played strats for many years until I got my hands on a J Mascis Jazzmaster and I just can't believe how comfortable the guitar feels. Unfortunately the electronics kept cutting in and out and sounded scratchy. So I picked up a new wiring harness and some pickups I want to try and install myself, problem is I have no clue what I'm doing, I need to figure out where the pickup wires go and there are two black wires in the cavity that I'm not sure are for, one is ground i assume. Anyway, if i posted some pics would anyone be willing to help me out and show me where the wires are to be soldered. Thanks in advance, Jeff.
  9. My 60th Anniversary Jazzmaster triple. Fitted a new scratchplate with the switches in a more ergonomic position as I found it impossible originally. Added a Mastery bridge also. Love it now!
  10. To me, nothing in the pictures jumps out as being anything other than original. I'm certainly not a Mustang 'expert', but I've owned a 1975(ish?) Mustang since 1982(1?) that there's no reason for me to believe has been modified in any way. Most of the parts and lettering look identical, with the exception mine has an additional string tree and all-metal tuning keys. There are a few good internet sources you can Google, of course, for specifics on that year, but most of them acknowledge that there doesn't seem to be a definitive 'bible' on what Fender made and when. Sorry for the late post, just saw this and figured a response might help someone somewhere.
  11. It's too late to reply here but can anyone suggest me some pawn shops or pawnbrokers open on sunday so that on weekend i will be able to have one second hand guitar for me.
  12. I just bought a used 2018 Jag 60s classic blue lacquer. The guitar is mint but the strings rattle like crazy. Anyone else with same guitar & problem? What did u to resolve the problem?
  13. Hello everyone. I picked up my first offset - a Levinson Blade. It came with a Gotoh Floyd Rose copy trem on it that was non-original. Am attaching a pic of the trem that's supposed to be on this guitar. Has anyone seen another trem that was similar?
  14. Hello, I am new. I have bought two KC Mustangs and in the next days I am going to recieve them. One of these is left handed. Someone has tried changing the order of the strings to make it right handed? (The 1st to the 6th, 2nd to 5th...) Do you get good results or do you have to do more modifications? Thanks
  15. Congrats on the new guitar! Looks great! Everyone is different when it comes to the sound of their pickups so difficult to recommend. Try out everything you can and see what fits your style and setup the best.
  16. Just got the Squire classic vibe Mustang it’s fantastic, always wanted a Fender KC Mustang but never could afford it so I went ahead and got this, I dropped in a Dimarzio tone zone in the bridge, a fender patent tremolo, hipshot locking tuners, new dunlop volume and tone pot .. next for the neck pick up is either this Dimarzio injector Or or Seymour Duncan Dumbucker which I got for free... I know this sounds dumb.. but i think the injector would sound sooo much better than the dumbucker but i hate the fact its vintage white and not white like my tone zone... what do you guys think? I dont know how to upload pics yet!!! Soo i could use help with that too hahah https://imgur.com/8LOZHX2 https://i.imgur.com/8LOZHX2.jpg
  17. I recently purchased the boss rv6 brand new a guitar center and have the same problem I'm taking it back today for some answers or a replacement
  18. Yes, still 7.25 radius board. I've seen them go for typically, around 6-800 used, some a little less, some a little more. With the hardshell case you're probably looking more around 800.
  19. Yeah the guy messed up the serial number when I got the pic from him... He finally sent me a cleaner picture and fender official says 2005. I edited the post to the real number. Sorry about that. These 69 reissues still have 7.25 radius necks right? What's the value on these things on this condition? Reverb pricing is all over the place, and I still like the guitar, but I'm not gonna pay vintage pricing for it lol
  20. It's a 2004 reissue. Specifically the '69 reissue. The mustang was discontinued around 81 and Fender Japan didn't start until 1982. The big giveaway is the 'crafted in Japan which didn't become standard marking until after 97, though some earlier models occasionally had it.
  21. Hello everyone thanks for reading. I recently came across a Mustang that is supposedly a 1982, but it's very difficult to find info on these years. Can anyone tell me some tell-tale signs? I have a few pics of it that I will attach. Serial: R018034 . Theres conflicting info on this. According to a mustang history page, that means it's 1982, but according to a decoder, it's a 2004 reissue? I can't figure out how to upload pics through here? So here's a link to the imgur gallery https://imgur.com/gallery/jNs2yUg If anyone can help, that'd be awesome and I'd really appreciate it.
  22. This will happen to literally any guitar with a bolt on neck. It's caused by the stress the screws put on such a tiny and thin piece of wood. It's nothing to worry about. It's a design flaw of bolt-on neck guitars.
  23. Very good to hear! The images you've uploaded to squire-talk seem to require a signed in user to view. Any chance you can put them someplace open to public?
  24. I know these questions have already been asked a lot. But I wanna be sure that, with my situation, I have my information correctly. The main problem is that my Jagstang always seems to have incorrect intonation. Even an hour after I got it back from a luthier. I just don't get it right and I've been to two different luthiers who told me they did the best they could and told me the guitar simply has this problem. (The only solution I have right now is to fix the intonation every time I think needs be.) I just wanna know for sure if some of you have any tips or were actually able to fix it? As far as mods go. In the near future I'm going to replace the tuners and humbucker (both of them stock). Is there anything else also worth replacing? People here seem to be 50/50 on changing the bridge for example. Thanks!

  26. I took my (then) immaculate Kurt Cobain Mustang to a guitar tech to get set up last week and it came back with some damage, worst of all a nice new crack in the neck pocket joint. I know it's most likely cosmetic only but has anybody else experienced this on their KC Mustang? I will be getting it checked to make sure it isn't into the wood.
  27. Hi everyone, I've had the option of getting a 2008 Fender Japan Jaguar JG66 O white (2008) in mint condition for around 880 € / 966 $ / 785 £ and I was wondering if that is a good price as I seem to see other JG66 models in different colours go for much less. Is there anything I should know good or bad about this model? Any helpful info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Adam
