  1. Several years ago I posted about how I was kind of disappointed in my Jag-stang. The output seemed kind of weak, the intonation wasn't great and the wolf tones on the low E string around the 12th fret were horrible. I recently decided to just see what I could do with it. I was nervous to mod it, since I really wanted to keep all the original parts. So, I decided to just do a full swap of the electronics, pickguard included. While it still has some issues that I haven't been able to figure out, swapping out the pickups was by far the best decision I've made in terms of upgrading. The intonation

  3. V005866 Pulled it out of my parents attic. Banged up and in pieces. Will be starting a restoration / customization soon. 50th Anniversary badge. Fiesta Red. Have not decided on pickups quite yet but I'm close. May have it refinished in Lake Placid Blue nitro in the near future, but for now I just want to get this thing running. Will take pics.

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

  6. Thanks Al(ex) I'm aware how lighting can effect colours - it's my job. I've included a correctly balanced photo taken with a colour chart for accuracy. It also includes some references. I know these references are not to be trusted! But they are a starting point. My intrigue with the colour of Jag-Stangs is more about why Fender sold these guitars as Sonic Blue, when it bares little resemblance to other Fender guitars which are Sonic Blue. I have seen some photos of Jag-Stangs looking a lot more blue, so I wonder if those photos are just incorrectly balanced, or if there was colour vari
