  1. I am interested in that question too, as I am planning on putting a jazzmaster tremolo on a Squier Jagmaster (which came with a strat type tremolo).
  2. $710 for this Rickenbacker? that's a steal!
  3. beautiful guitar.... the reliced red finish + this pickguard color = great combination.
  4. Great job indeed, it's going to look awesome! Did you also paint the headstock?
  5. Cool project... Do you have a lefty Mustang tailpiece/vibrato??
  6. Yes, that's just cashing up on Cobain's name... Obviously they got the color of the pickup switch cover wrong but other than that, it's still a nice guitar, especially if you can't afford a Univox. As a real tribute to Cobain, they could sell a lefty model (I am sure Cobain would have been thrilled if he had a lefty Univox). But there is a bunch of companies making these Mosrite copies. DiPinto is another one and they also make good guitars.
  7. Finally decided to go for a bastardized guitar... and I named it the Suprasonic Probably going to start with a jagmaster or a jaguar (if I can find a body not too pricey) and go from there. I did some mockups tonight... I haven't decided between metallic blue with white pickguard or olympic white and tortoise pickguard. Or maybe sparkle silver with a tortoise pickguard...
  8. I wonder who would buy this duo sonic... this "feather" finish is a real nightmare... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Squire-Duo-Sonic-Feathercaster-/270900561962?pt=Guitar&hash=item3f12ee882a#ht_500wt_1413
  9. Just make sure the neck is not warped, and that the electronic is not damaged (water damaged, etc..). Other than that, i agree that they're some nice looking guitars... I like the old Hagstrom too and the old Epiphone Willshire. If I ever put my hands on a lefty model from one of these brands...
  10. The dark lake placid blue with the stripes is SWEEEEET and they are releasing left handed models... If only they released them before xmas, it would have been perfect.
  11. So far, it just looks awesome.... great color, great combination with the pickguard, great shape, can't wait to see the finished guitar! (I also admire your patience, I would want the guitar to be ready in a couple of days haha) Which brand of paint did you use? or did you mixed/made it yourself?
  12. of all the pix, I like the 2nd one better... this surf green with this pickguard looks cool...
  13. $1300 for a MIM Jaguar? That's Fender cashing in on Cobain's name. If they wanted a real tribute to him, they could just make regular lefty jag and mustang models more available in the US. Fender USA sucks anyway, I am all for Fender Japan.
  14. my bad, I never noticed Robert Smith's Jazz had one like that...
  15. Looks great!! I am not a big fan of this particular buzz stop, but other than that, this Jazzmaster looks classy!
  16. I was browsing some old topics on this board last night (a lot of eye candy for sure) and it reminded me how much I love Squier Supersonics... However, being lefty and all, I know Squier never made lefty ones (never seen any homemade ones either), and that some lefties enjoyed them since played lefty, the shape kinda looks like a jaguar's. Anyway, I was pondering what would be the best way to start a lefty Supersonic project... Maybe a righty Squier Jagmaster would provide the basis for the body and I could just "shave" off some to have both cutaways on the same level (which would be the more difficult part of the process I think)... What do you guys think? Another option would be to have a supersonic body made somewhere, but I have never seen any guitar part stores selling SS bodies...
  17. my Fender Jaguar 66 Reissue, CIJ, Left-handed. New black/white/black pickguard, SD hotrail in the bridge position, SD quarter pound in the neck position, schaller strap locks, and homemade decal.
  18. have you tried looking on the Warmoth site for the body? http://www.warmoth.com/guitar/bodies/vi ... ion=jaguar
  19. or you can also try to find an old Fender Bronco and customize it so it looks closer to a real mustang...
  20. I like the jag too, it looks like a mix of a jag and a jazzmaster. And for the knobs, try to look there: http://fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0019455000 Cheers.
  21. Did they ever make any lefty model of the Toronado?\
  22. I remember the telestang... but what is the tearstand is about (I am kinda scared, just by the name)? Anyone has pix of one?
  23. from left to right, top to bottom: Hohner ST, my second guitar, served me well for years, bought it in 1987. Rogue Viola bass: good quality, decent sound. Danelectro Reissue: Good guitar, warm clean sound. Squier Strat: righty but set up for lefty, with an EMG pickup. I got it for free and butchered it a bit. Fender Telecaster (mex): with a SD pickup on the bridge position. Better quality than expected, sounds great. Fender Jaguar 66 Reissue (jap): great quality, great sound, put 2 SD pickups, a black pickguard, my main guitar. Fender Mustang 67 (U.S.): older than me, 2 SD pickups, just an awesome guitar
