  1. If you are thinking of buying a guitar simply because you have "never owned one before", then you are buying it for the wrong reason. I've never owned a Gretsch While Falcon, but I'm not going to buy one just because I've never owned one. I almost bought a Squier CV Duo-Sonic a few months ago just because I didn't have a guitar of that shape, but then I realized that I hate the necks on the CV series, and I bought a Deluxe Strat instead and couldn't be happier with it. I'm so happy with it, I'm leaving it totally stock, which is rare for me. My advice is take your time, go to the guitar stor

  3. WHY IS THAT RELEVANT?!?!?!?!?!?! ok seriously I dun even know who you're yelling at, but shut up, we're trying to be helpful and apparently you have some problem that you're not even telling us. if you want it to stay in tune better do Mad-Mike's trem setup or do the hardtail mod that I did. The way strings feed is irrelevant. DON'T FREAKING YELL ABOUT THINGS THAT DON'T FREAKING MAKE SENSE OR THAT DON'T HAVE A FREAKING POINT! or better yet you could sell your jag-stang and buy a guitar that works for you since you weren't having the best of luck with your jag-stang last time you were on here

  4. Yup! If I was going to swap out all the electronics anyways, why not start with the base model? As far as I am concerned alderwood is alderwood and necks tend to vary mostly by radius, length, and frets. How much you paid for it generally doesn't seem to feel different from playing with $2,000-$3,000 guitars and $100 ones. It is about how the guitar feels to you and sounds to you. I think people look at the stuff that their favorite musicians play and think they have to have that guitar to emulate that sound. While that is somewhat true, it doesn't mean you can't use a entry strat or tele to p

  11. Sorry to double post but I have a little update. I am starting to realize that fender short scales are an addiction.... I was loving messing around with the squier mustang I posted and had an itch to go for the real thing. I found a 1996 MIJ mustang on craigslist for a very fair price from a super nice guy, so I had to go for it... Sorry for the poor quality pic. Right now, I am really enjoying it as is. In the future, I may have the headstock painted/re-decaled, may swap out the fast tracks (previous owner had installed) for the zexcoil juicy bucker and replace the neck pickup wi

  16. Maybe one of the soldering points came loose? I would open it up and reflow each connection and see if that helps. Also try different cables to make sure it wasn't an amp or cable issue.

  20. Hi, I haven't been posting much lately. The forum has been dead, and I havn't been guitaring much. But I had to see what people think of the 'Pawn Shop' series. Seems that Fender is becoming more like Squier all the time. No new designs, just more bastardized versions of old favourites. But great to see the return of the mighty 51!!!

  22. FYI the first one isn't a Blacktop, it's just a Japanese HH, so it's priced pretty much correctly. Get the second one. Way more versatile instrument.

  23. Also, Cobain was murdered, he wasn't suicidal! He was a joker, he liked to tell white lies and mislead the media. Most of his best friends say he wasn't suicidal, HE said he wasn't suicidal, he wanted to leave that slut Love and start fresh, a new life, a new band but of course that untalented bitch (Erlandson and Cobain wrote all her best songs) wouldn't let him and had him killed so his legacy would keep her in the spotlight and very very rich! Had he just left her, today, people would very likely be like "Courtney who?" People ALWAYS believe what the media spews out, the media ALWAYS spe

  25. I discovered this board/forum shortly after I bought my 2010 Blacktop Jaguar on (appropriately) Black Friday. The quality is frickin' unbelievable for the money. I liked it so much I had to have the Blacktop Jazzmaster too... so here you go... These are great guitars. I think the Jaguar does hard rock really, really well, but it could cover anything. The Jazzmaster has a greater tonal range and is - surprisingly, for a Fender - one of the fastest necks I've played. Just sweet and scary fast...

  26. I would wait till after christmas to see if you get more $$$ and what options that may add to the mix. I have a hard time giving guitar recommendations to anyone as we all have different preferences. Hate to fall back on this suggestion but do you have a place where you can jam on both the models you are interested in for a while? And if you can play through a setup similar to your hope setup that will help the comparison as well.

  27. Think about it. Bleach tone: Hi Flyer/that Epi Strattish thing > DS-1 > Fender Twin Nevermind tone: HH Jag/Mustang/Strat > DS-1, Small Clone, loads of overdubs > Twin/Mesa (I think?) In Utero tone: Les Paul copy (yes), Jag > Sansamp, Polychorus > No idea about amps Kurt never used the J-S that much, and for what it did well he preferred his Mustang anyway. The Jag-Stang was never a huge part of his setup.

  29. Yeah, but only the newer jagmasters. Not the Vista ones, because they where true 24 scale. But Yeah, if you get one of the newer jagmasters, you can put that neck on it and it will convert it to 24, or even put a 25.5 on the jagmaster.

  30. If I could have had something like that when I started out I woulda been stoked! All i had was a 10 watt Peavy.LOL Now, 16 years later, I have great gear and would never buy this ####, but for beginners (the intended market I assume) it seems great IMHO!

  38. It really is amazing that 'the worlds largest guitar manufacturer' can have such inconsistencies between different lines of guitar. You would expect a Sonic Blue Strat to be the same as a Sonic blue Mustang, or Telecaster... but it's just not the case. I guess if anything, it gives their guitars more character. It does make me wonder if at some point someone accidentally used the wrong paint, which is why they have created this new 'Satin Sonic Blue' colour as an excuse to cover up an old mistake

  42. I'm gonna chime in on the Nirvana issue also, although Feedback summed up my stance pretty well. Cobain wasn't exactly a 'good' guitarist, but he was a 'great' one, in much the same way that say Bob Dylan or Neil Young are great guitarists. Not because of technical virtuosity, but because of the amount of influence they have on later generations, and it's clear to anyone who stays on this site for more than 5 seconds, that Cobain has had a massive influence on those that came after, which - in my definition of the term - qualifies him for greatness. Was he technically great? No. Did he need

  45. I just got mine from MF today. I was really suprised how well it played right out of the box. The sunburst finish is pretty sweet, and the frets are smooth all the way down. The tuners are the same as the American series Strats and Teles(with "Fender" written on the back of them). The bridge is a like a modernized Jazzy/Jaguar style. They have one string size groove per saddle as opposed to the several small ones as the old ones have. Similar to the Mustang. I was pleasantly suprised by that. I dont think I will be in a rush to change it anytime soon. The knobs are all smooth and seem

  46. Paltic: I didn't respond to the video because it's your opinion on a band, so it'd be pointless and a waste of time. All i commented on was the pedalboard, which is that of a beginner... and where did all this about the cool guys come from? I quoted The Simpsons, in jest. Me and Gilmourish are friends. for realz. we can haz jokes sometimes pl90xznmks/? when I read that, I fell off the sofa. <33

  47. the colors for reissues which I know the '65 reissues are dakota red, olympic white, and daphne blue and I believe thats it. for bass it's vintage white and fiesta red I believe. (i'm not sure why fender makes the reissue 6 string guitar dakota red while they make the bass fiesta red, seems odd...But Fender's fender.)
