  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

  12. 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

  17. 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.

  21. 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!!!

  23. 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.

  24. 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

  26. 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...

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  30. 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.

  38. Hi Thanks very much for your reply. I did wonder about the VM Squier mustang as I have one and whether I could just get hold of the same bridge and do a straight replacement. Funnily enough I actually really like the neck on the VM mustang I have as well so I’m tempted just to get hold of a one of them and use that. What do you think? cheers

  41. i would try and save up a bit of cash and go for something a bit higher end. the ds-1 isnt a bad pedal by any means, there are far worse out there, but in all reality there are better units out there. and it would be very wise to go out and try out as many as possible. personally i have owned about five ds-1 pedals, but never stick with them for very long, i preferred the boss od-1 to the harsh sounding ds-1, i didn't much care for the ds-2 when i tried it, and if i were to reccomend any distortion pedal, i would say the dwarfcraft devices eau claire thunder is my personal fav. tho they sell

  45. Hello! So I am aware that the switches in the jags tang are dptt set in on off phase, but I was wondering if I could switch it to split on split for a lace dually I'm installing! Is that possible? Or would I need to buy a new switch?

  46. Currently saving for another Gibson ('61 SG) and a new JCM900 stack but my setup wont change other than the amp. That's it for me, I don't want anymore #### after that and I'm only getting this cause its necessary. I only need one guitar but always have a few. My Jett melody maker and the sg will be the only guitars I bother using but when I start doing shows again I will always take my 66 mustang as a back up. I used to like having this pedal and that pedal etc, I'm a minimalist now, have been for quite a while, I fvking hate complicated setups and pedalboards and a dozen guitars and ####

  47. My take on this post. Kurt was a fan-phucking-tastic guitar player, not a wanker like vai or satriani, he was in the same class as hendrix, he had soul,rhythm, balls and most importantly creativity. Technical ability is the WORST way to judge a guitar player and using lead guitarists as a standard is even worse!
