    Hi! We don't have the extra server disk space to allow forum uploads. I would recommend an image sharing site like imgur, photobucket, instagram, etc... And then you could link the image to the post.
  2. Problem with VM Jaguar

    Hello! The Fender spec sheet for VM Jag says that the following string gauge was used from factory: .009-.042 Since you've went up to 11's the first thing to check is if the string is getting stuck in the nut. This is a very common issue when putting bigger strings on a guitar. Normally you should be able to bend the string on either side of the nut and it will stay in tune. My advice is to go visit a guitar tech who has the appropriate nut files and can get it set up for the 11's your are using.
  3. My case came with the jagstang new so I have little experience with aftermarket cases. However it's not very likely that a case that will fit a jaguar/jazzmaster will also fit a stratocaster well due to the very different body shapes. But since I have little experience I could very well be wrong. If you have a local shop that you can actually try them out would be best. Or online shop with good return policy. There is quite a bit of feedback on these cases at amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Gator-Jazzmaster-Electric-Guitars-GW-JAG/dp/B004PXOB26 Keep in mind the feedback is for all the models they have available and not just the GW-JAG model. Cheers!
  4. Lead circuit issues

    Hi and Welcome! I'm assuming you have checked all the solder joints to make sure everything looks solid. Also check those joints to make sure there is no solder touching "other" connections causing a short. Also check for any little strand of wire that may be touching something it shouldn't causing a short in that circuit. If this all looks good then the next step is to review a schematic and make sure everything is wired correctly. https://www.fmicassets.com/Damroot/Original/10001/Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar 0302000XXX Wiring & Control Diagram.pdf
  5. Even knockoff's have a certain amount of charm and historical significance.
  6. Is my Jaguar a fake?

    Hello! When I run you information through 'Guitar Dater Project' it returns: Fender Serial Number Search is NOT a reliable way to identify a serial number. Use their Japanese Dating info. https://support.fender.com/hc/en-us/articles/214343783-How-can-I-find-out-when-my-Japanese-made-instrument-was-manufactured- Also, a Stratocaster would have a different scale length neck. Measure from bridge to nut to get the scale length - Jaguar will have a 24" length. Strat will have a 25.5" length. http://www.stewmac.com/How-To/Online_Resources/Learn_About_Guitar_and_Instrument_Fretting_and_Fretw/Scale_Length_Explained.html Looks like a legit 2002-2004 jaguar to me.
  7. I felt the stock bridge was good enough. The Mastery Bridge is a bit too pricey for me. This old thread has quite a few opinions on the bridge.
  8. squier vm mustang buzz

    First try to identify exactly where the noise is coming from. Is it from the string being too close to a fret? Is it a rattling spring or other part from the tremelo setup? Is it a rattling tuner? Once you know this you can tackle the problem. If it's fret buzz you can raise the action by raising that end of the floating bridge via the allen screw in the post. Also heaving gauge strings will increase string tension and reduce fret buzz. If you have a trusted local guitar luthier that is also an option. Good luck!
  9. The default spacing recommended by Fender is: Humbuckers Bass Side: 4/64" (1.6 mm) Treble Side: 4/64" (1.6 mm) (via fender.com) That being said the height is easy to adjust so it's best to experiment a bit and see what you like best.

    That's pretty cool being able to see the truss rod through the neck.
  11. My Jazzmaster projecr

    I love the look of the guitar! How are you liking the mastery bridge?
  12. Hi XaG. You mean like is in the below photo, correct? Those are just stickers and they were sometimes removed by owners over the years. Some of the guitars may have never had the stickers. It's hard to know for sure. The presence of those stickers is no real indication of the year the guitar was made.
  13. New CIJ Jagstang

    Congrats! I had a similar experience trying out Squier VM Jazzmasters a while back. Local store had 3 of them and I found 1 to be a lot better than the other 2 for some reason. Strange!
  14. Thanks for sharing your experience. Thomann has had a lot of positive feedback on their customer service over the last few years. So it's a bit disappointing to hear this. Hopefully they make good somehow. Let us know if anything else happens.
