  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!

  39. If you take the tremolo off and remove the spring and tighten the spring's screw all the way tight, it should basically hard tail the tremolo giving you a similar experience vs drilling the body to add a stop tail. Using that bridge would also have you need to drill the bridge holes out of you want the bridge installed completely, also you would likely need to add a shim because tune-o-matic style bridges are taller physically. It can be done, but I don't know if you will get a lot different sound doing all those changes. Pickups usually make a more noticeable difference in sound honestly.

  40. I painted this custom body myself and wired it so that when both pickups are off, it puts them in series. DSC03928 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr I painted this custom body myself. It has 1meg pots and a toggle. IMG_1773 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr This was a blacktop that I routed for WRHB's and wired it like a SY guitar pretty much. Only volume. It also has a TOM. DSC02281 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr I custom routed for the middle pickup ala Robert Smith. I also installed the buzz stop. The upper pots control the middle pickup's volume and tone.

  43. Well comparing different values is flawed for a start as a 33nF on 6 is not gonna sound the same as a 22nF on 6. What I hear (with headphones on) is subtle at best when a difference is even apparent at all and can be explained by tolerances. His 22nF orange drop cap may not measure exactly 22nF, it may be 23.5nF and his ceramic may actually be 20nF,hence they will sound different on 6. One would have to measure every cap and match them exactly to the desired value to do this test so its flawed from the start. Its all about tolerances,not type and any money spent on so called high end caps (

  46. First up; A 1964 oxford green refin. This was formerly Lous: Second, my first Jag. Sunburst CIJ with upgrades; black sp, 'mute' and SD QP pickup in the bridge position. Third, burgundy mist CIJ upgraded to my preferences. DiM humbucker in the bridge position; Buzzstop fitted specifically to counteract 'sympathetic harmonics' and 'timbre' being voiced from behind the bridge through the higher output pickup.
