  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 store and play a few of all varieties, and fall in love with one.

  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 either.

  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 perform songs originally performed on Les Pauls. Great players can make most anything sound good. Buy a guitar that sounds and feels right and fits your budget.

  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 with a zexcoil throaty bucker and may throw on a white peraloid pickguard. I am also considering a mastery bridge but for now, the stock bridge is pretty solid. Depends how much sustain I can get by swapping the pickups. God I love this guitar.

  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 spews out lies! The SPD (Seattle Police Department) is corrupt as ####, the coroner who done the autopsy had to have had ulterior motives...like Money. Because, being an ex-Heroin addict of over 12 years myself I know how much Smack even the hardest user can take before he is completely incapacitated. There is absolutely zero fvking chance Cobain wacked that much smack and then was able to pick up a gun. Why? Simple, that much smack would have killed him to start with! Smack, when injected hits the brain instantly, not minutes later, not seconds later, but instantly. He also had Benzodiazepines in his system, which makes shooting smack a game between life and death depending on the amount of benzos. And why would anyone purposely overdose on smack, BUT shoot them self BEFORE the smack took effect??? That makes ZERO sense and that is assuming smack doesn't work instantly when in fact it does! I know it does because I have injected it thousands of times and every single time it hit instantly, that is science people, that is observable, repeatable science! Anyone that says Cobain killed himself is a narrow minded fool in my opinion, they are the same type of people that don't believe the US government assassinated Kennedy and the war in Iraq is legit! This, to me and millions of others, is what makes the loss of Cobain that much worse. He wanted to keep making music,just not as Nirvana but most importantly he wanted to LIVE and we have lost a musical genius of the modern age because of some untalented bitches greed and psychopathic tendencies towards self agrandization and fame and fortune! Say what you will, this is my opinion and as far as I'm concerned its the objective truth!

  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.

  38. Hello to all I have a jag that will not stay in tune dynamo using the tremelo (stays slighty flat) Now I will switch to thicker gauge strings for the added pressure onto the bridge..... I disassembled the trem and noticed that the plate which holds the strings rotated about the adjustment plate (the one that bolts to the upper body plate. HAS ANYONE EVER GROUND THE EDGE OF THE ADJUSTMENT PLATE TO A RADIUS TO ALLEVIATE FRICTION AGAINST THE SURFACE OF THE OTHER PLATE? Thanks

  39. If you're set on the JAg-Stang, I'd get that because it'll be harder to come by in the future. Fender has been making the Twin Reverb without repent for decades now and it's a very popular amplifier so it'd be easy to get your hands on one after the fact. That's just what I've learned in my experience of gear buying.

  40. exactly what I was thinking... I suggest to follow the original Fender Mustang wiring diagram. Jagstangs were meant to be wired like the Mustangs.. I have personally wired over 15 Jag-Stangs and have the following with great success... Just wire the humbucker in the bridge as if you were installing a single coil pup

  41. Hello Friends, long-time lurker, etc. etc. I decided about seven years ago to completely rebuild my '96 jag-stang that I got brand new for Christmas when I was 13. I pulled everything out of it, and then promptly left it in my closet until this summer, when I got to work instead of studying for law school finals. (pretend I wasn't drunk when ordering pickups and the lace is white also). So here's the deal: I bought a p-rail for the bridge pickup, but no one anywhere explains how to use the mustang switch to go from north coil-series-south coil. I tried my own wiring scheme with disastrous results, so for now I have the neck switch as the pickup selector, and the bridge switch going from north coil to parallel to south coil. Although everything sounds great and I never felt the way about a pickup like I do about the P-90 coil, I already get a parallel sound from using the neck and p-90 together. Has anybody done this successfully? I know its usually not recommended because normal humbucker coils don't sound distinct enough to want the split, but there are audible differences between these two coils and I'd like all three sounds. My going theory is that I grounded something with something else that shouldn't have been joined. This didn't work well enough. My thinking was that with the switch toward the neck, the north coil would go to the selector; in the middle, it would be like the two coils were wired together; and in the bridge, just the south would go to the selector. I didn't do a whole lot of testing other than "gah, noisey, buzzing, bad!" before switching the whole mess to an easy north-parallel-south config. I've looked at the triple shot for the p-rail, but I really don't need the parallel sound, nor do I want to contend with another hunk of plastic on what looks relatively clean right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated; this was my first attempt at wiring (success) and my first attempt at drawing my own diagram (abject failure).
