  1. Hello! Not enough info/photos provided in your post to be much help.. But here's my guess. The double humbucker and black color MIJ jaguar I think are more likely around 2010. As most 90s mij jaguars were '66 and '62 reissues with more vintage colors available. Again this is mostly a guess with this amount of available info.
  2. Your guitar is looking great! I've always been a sucker for that tortoise shell pickguard on the sonic blue jagstangs. And your new set of controls are such a natural fit that it looks like the guitar should be built that way. Well done!
  3. Where does the other end connect to? Is it going towards the tailpiece? One of the black grounds should connect to the bridge post. As least on some of them it does. Do you see any stray wires when referencing the jagstang schematic at this url? https://www.offsetguitars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=97914
  4. Hello! I'm curious what problems you're having with the stock tremolo on the Squier Mustang VM ? I don't see you gaining much with upgrading that part in particular unless there is a specific issue. There are parts out there, for example: (AllParts UK link) Tremolo tailpiece for Mustang w arm
  5. Hello! You'll probably find the most info about vintage mustangs at Mr Maxima's site: http://www.fendermustangstory.com/
  6. Interesting. Do both have the same pickups and hardware? It's pretty common to hear about the wide weight ranges of mahogany bodies but I had never considered it for basswood.
  7. There are over 450 sonic blue jag-stangs in our Registry. Many MIJs and many CIJs. The photos there don't really support a simple answer as such. You are welcome to try and find more support using that same info though. You can view all the sonic blue jag-stangs in the Registry by going to the viewer: https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/view And then filter by sonic blue.
  8. Hi! I don't have exact dimensions. You may be able to search guitar parts places online to see if there are any good matches. For example - allparts.com has a lot of mustang tremolo parts. (reissue and vintage) I've no idea if vintera is same size as reissue. AllParts.com - TREMOLO ARM FOR REISSUE MUSTANG (link) AllParts.com - TREMOLO ARM FOR VINTAGE MUSTANG (link)
  9. Congrats on your new guitar! Very cool you've found one in such great shape. If you're a facebook user also check us out over there - a bit more activity than the forum. https://www.facebook.com/jagstangcom/
  10. Hello! Check out this youtube video to see if it matches your problems with the tremolo. Not the same guitar but probably same tremolo issue.
  11. Fender has never released any production figures for the JagStang. We do know there were no left handed models produced during the "reissue" period from 2003-2006.
  12. Another thing to add .. if you compare the color of these American Performer guitars on the Fender Site vs Sweetwater... They also look totally different. I give up.
  13. Even to this day the consistency of what Fender calls "sonic blue" can be up for question. Though it is more consistent than the past. Here's a link to the US Fender shop with search term "sonic blue". https://shop.fender.com/en-US/search?q=sonic+blue&lang=en_US Scroll down to 'American Performer Telecaster' and 'American Performer Mustang' - and then go into the details for each. They are calling this color 'satin sonic blue' which has the green tint to it. And it doesn't even match the color selector on the detail page. So who knows?? lol. I guess it's something to keep people talking anyway.
  14. Technically only 'Sonic Blue' and 'Fiesta Red' were ever made. There may be some slight tint differences in different production runs but the vast majority of differences in color is down to the lighting. Here's a few examples in the Registry where different photos of the same sonic blue guitar look to be different colors: https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/guitarinfo/2184 https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/guitarinfo/2175 https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/guitarinfo/2202 Also if you just browse through the registry the sonic blue colors look all over the place. https://www.jag-stang.com/registry/view Also, we have this FAQ page on the site. https://www.jag-stang.com/faq/jagstang/my-jagstang-is-not-sonic-blue-or-fiesta-red/
  15. Hello. I think I have seen someone attempt this change but couldn't find the photos. However I really don't recommend it. You will LITERALLY devalue your jagstang more than a NEW classic vibe jaguar/jm costs.
  16. Hello! It should certainly have a serial number. I believe in the location shown in the photo below. If it's not there check for signs (in that area) that it might have been removed. That happens to guitars that get stolen quite often. Or it may have had the neck replaced at some point.
  17. Hello! I'm not familiar enough with the Jaguar wiring to give any specific recommendations. Are you trying to get back to the "stock" switch functionality or change the functionality of the switch to something else? In general, when looking for schematics, I start at https://images.google.com. You might find something that meets your requirements doing that. Below is just an example of what can be found.
  18. Congrats on the new guitar! Looks great! Everyone is different when it comes to the sound of their pickups so difficult to recommend. Try out everything you can and see what fits your style and setup the best.
  19. Very good to hear! The images you've uploaded to squire-talk seem to require a signed in user to view. Any chance you can put them someplace open to public?
  20. Looks like a start of a great project! Thanks for sharing your progress with us!
  21. Welcome! You have some great looking guitars!
  22. Hey, it looks great! Thanks for sharing your progress with us.
