  1. Welcome! You have some great looking guitars!
  2. Hey, it looks great! Thanks for sharing your progress with us.
  3. Hi. Check out Fender chart on the following link to help date your Jaguar. If you're not sure where it fits with that info share a photo of the guitar's serial number with us. https://support.fender.com/hc/en-us/articles/214343783-How-can-I-find-out-when-my-Japanese-made-instrument-was-manufactured-
  4. I'll probably just make your decision even more difficult. But the new 'Classic Vibe' models that were announced at NAMM are hitting stores right about now. I would wait until I could try some of those out before making a decision. There is a new 60's Mustang model that you might like. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MustCV60SB--squier-classic-vibe-60s-mustang-sonic-blue There are also new 60s style Jazzmaster and new 70s style Jaguar. The 'Classic Vibe' line from Squier has been a real fan favorite in the past but there are not many reviews of these new models out yet. The problem you will find with the jag-stang is it's somewhat over-priced due to being out of production and harder to find.
  5. Thanks for posting! The first time I saw this particular article was Feb 2017. https://www.facebook.com/jagstangcom/posts/article-on-fender-com-by/10155035166462630/ If i had to guess I would saw they "bump" articles like this from time to time.. maybe they are trying to get more interest going for that new Powercaster as well. Hard to say.
  6. Hey! This project looks very cool! Thanks for sharing your experiences with it as you progress.
  7. Hello! The differences are very minor and the majority of people will not notice them. Here's the main differences. Primary difference is that the reissue has an alder body and the original issue has basswood body. The reissue pickups are also called something different but I've not heard anyone saying they prefer one over the other. The reissue pickguard may have a more "shiny" material in it than the original. I do not believe there are any neck differences. Someone please jump in if you have this answer. Here's some more info to help your research. Original specs - Winter NAMM 1996: https://www.jag-stang.com/guitars/jagstang/jagstang-technical-specs/ Original press release - Winter NAMM 1996: https://www.jag-stang.com/guitars/jagstang/press-release-winter-namm-1996/ Re-Issue press release and specs - Summer NAMM 2003: https://www.jag-stang.com/guitars/jagstang/reissued-jagstang-debuts-at-summer-namm-2003/ Also if you're just having issues with fret wear and really like that neck I would recommend looking up a well respected luthier near you and get an estimate for fixing it up. Thanks and let us know how it goes!
  8. Hello! We also came across this in our Jag-Stang Registry where we order the jag-stang's by serial number. If you look at this page of jag-stangs in the Registry you can see the transition from MIJ to CIJ with a V+6 serial number. (ignore the V999999 number) https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/view/39/2 We know that japan production moved to a new plant in the 96/97 time period. See wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Japan So best guess would be that these CIJ V+6 are "transitional" serials and not really unique. From the limited number of guitars in the Registry it looks like the cutoff between MIJ/CIJ is around the V028000 range of numbers. Although there are some overlapping that number on both sides the cutoff is right around there. The lowest CIJ V+6 we've seen is V028339 and the highest one is V039576. Your's fits right in that range. This should not impact the value however. Great looking guitar!
  9. Looking forward to seeing what you put together!
  10. Hello! It's normal due to the slant of the stock humbucker. Probably looks like this right?
  11. It looks like a great overhaul! Dig the color. How do those pickups sound?
  12. Hello and welcome! Have you taken the bridge out to make sure there are no screws showing at the bottom of the posts? The screws are not really visible from the top of the guitar. Here's an example of what you should see. (see the bottom of the bridge post) If you're still looking for small parts (like screws and washers) after verifying they are not there I always recommend going to your closest guitar repair shop / luthier. They usually have a bin around with extra parts they use and will help you out at fair price.
