  1. If I have the inclination, I might buy one of the 51's. I had a beautiful Squier 51 which I sould and (of course) regretted, and if the Fender version is anything like it, I would be proud to have my first 'real' Fender be a 51. Ironic in it's way. But if it has a gloss neck, I will cross my arms in an X, stare down the barrell of the camera and shout "NO DEEEAAAALLLLL" like a moron. Are there any spec sheets available for these things yet?
  2. 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!!!
  3. Dave Murray from Iron Maiden has spend most of his career playing a strat with a maple fretboard. Not the metal guitar that one would expect, but it seems to work fine.
  4. I really don't think they are conversion necks. I don't think that was a feature until the Gen III Jagmasters.
  5. I'm not certain, but I am willing to speculate... SuperSonics were part of the Vista Series, and I believe that Jagmaster necks didn't become conversion necks until the 3rd generation release. So I am pretty sure the SuperSonic necks are either true shortscale or true fullscale. But there are SuperSonic owners on the forum who will be able to provide a more definitive answer.
  6. What Rich said. Also, the Musicmasters came first, so Fender were probably still ironing out some creases. Thing of the Duo as a more versatile, refined, and probably better-made option.
  7. It's Teh Kurdtz!!! Very interesting, though. My girlfriend is Japanese, so I might ask her to translate it so we can have some real info
  8. Hoping to find the Jazzy in about July. A present from me to me for being a good, honest taxpayer Still waiting to see a demo where the demo-er doesn't feel the need to drown the sound of the guitar under a breaking-up of driven amp sound. I wanna hear some CLEANS, goddammit!!!
  9. The glove idea is a good one I think. Other than that, I'd just suggest experimenting and trial-and-error.
  10. In my opinion, there is really no difference. If you are talking about 'vintage-voiced' strat pickups, the output levels might be something like N=6.0, M=6.5, B=7.0. The difference in 'hotness' between a 7.0 and a 6.0 would not be so bad as to be intolerable. Heck, I would barely notice it. I have a 10k output hotrail in the neck position of my strat, and two singles of about 6.5 and 7.0 in the bridge. I keep the hotrail mounted low, and the other two a bit higher to keep the balance. No biggie. Personally, I like all 3 pickups to be at about the same level because I use them all for the sam
  11. Teisco? They can be bought for pennies and have some very original designs.
  12. Can you post pics of the guitar please? I'm a Zappa FANATIC and would love to see this little piece of history. Heck, my avatar over at Squier-Talk is a pic of Frank playing what may well be the very Jazzy you now own!!! I'd give up my firstborn son for that thing.
  13. I've said it before, I'll say it again... Why do some people just REFUSE to play clean during a demo??? Sure we can hear what the amp sounds like, but very little about what the guitar sounds like.
  14. Yeah, they are great players, I found the neck to be silky smooth, great profile. I liked the sound of the 51 neck pickup so much I had one installed as a middle pickup on my Jagmaster. Mine was heavily modified (even when I bought it), and I've never had the pleasure of playing a stock 51 bridge pickup. As for replacement pickguards, guitarfetish still sell them. I bought 2 in my days; a tiger pearl one that didn't fit at all, and a 3-ply black that I had cut into the design that you see in the pic. I'm not too sure where else to get them.
  15. Congrats on the 51! I used to have one but I sold it because I thought I no longer wanted it. It's probably the only guitar of mine that I have sold that I have ended up regretting. I recently sold my Squier Deluxe strat and I might start missing that also. Here's a couple of pics of my 51. I know it doesn't belong here, but it won't hurt anyone
