  1. I use Dean Markley Blue Steel Mediums 11-52. When I tried flat-wounds I didn't like 'em. My 'style' is jangley. Flat-wounds are not jangley.
  2. If that was my problem I'd rather deal with stainless steel than get a glove. Too much of a learning curve and they'd look dorky.
  3. I thought Warmouth didn't do block inlays on short scale necks? I looked into that. Also, I really like Dean Markley Blue Steel strings on my Jags. Those are the only strings I use these days.
  4. I typed "block inlay" into Ebay. Maybe there are a few leads there... My results Good luck!
  5. Are you 100% sure that thing fits a jag? Jags have big butts.
  6. You can stick just about any pick up into a guitar if you have enough money.
  7. If your Orange amps avatar is accurate... do you play with over-driven Orange amps as your main sound? That would certainly lessen the need for a distortion pedal. I play with a clean sound, so in the classic Pixies/Nirvana-esque sound contrast kind-of-way, distortion offers the best change... but I have been enjoying my Empress Superdelay pedal the most lately.
  8. Well, *yeah* a tuner pedal is probably the best place to start, but isn't that sort of a technicality? If I just had one pedal to affect the SOUND, I'd have to go with a distortion pedal. For me that's an old Rat pedal.
  9. 1999 huh? Time flies when you're obsessing over guitar gear... My bandmates always get bugged with me when I plink on the strings on the 'wrong' side if the nut and bridge. I sort of like it, but that sound clearly belongs to Sonic Youth... sort of like how if you make a cool wall of efx sounds you can easily become a My Bloody Valentine rip-off.
  10. Sonic Youth had a bunch of their gear stolen a year or two ago, so I can see why they need Fender to hook them up. Funtoosh... that pickup behind the the bridge is quite impressive-- in a totally ridiculous kind of way; I think the next thing they need is a pickup past the nut.
  11. Sweet Sonic Youth guitars! Cool to go for the simplicity. I never touch the tone knob anyway, so I fully endorse those bad boys.
  12. I think they're handwound by the builder. I could have gotten whatever I wanted in the guitar, but I honestly can't remember if they used ceramic or what not. The builder also talked about waiting to get the nicer tortoise-shell pickguard from Italy or something. I think it looks quite sharp, and way better than the replacement pickguards out there (that I used on a Jag and Jazzmaster). Master-built adds like an extra thousand or so.
  13. Pretty bad-ass looking guitar with those quarter pounders, junebug. In France they call those pick-ups "burguer-royales."
  14. They aren't cheap. Here it is.I sort of question my decision, but you can get a 'basic' Jaguar "team-built" for around 3K, but I got mine Master-built for some odd reason. I didn't ask for any crazy requests like custom graphics or anything. Just the a bound neck, block inlays, and flamed maple neck. I guess when you think about how much custom shop Les Paul's cost it's not totally insane-- just slightly. It sounds great, but I have a refinished '63 Jag that has this amazing low-end (and a bit of mojo) that is quite different from the custom shop. Now that I have the guitar I feel like the on
