  1. Hey I've had my 1977 Mustang for a couple of months now and I'm still unsure whether the bridge is original... It's a jazzmaster/jaguar bridge rather than the normal mustang one. Did Fender ever ship mustangs with this type of bridge? Also, I heard that the floating bridge is meant to rock backwards and forwards but mine doesn't... It actually fits in the holes quite tightly but there's no tape or anything and when I bought a replacement mustang bridge it didn't quite fit in the post holes length ways even though the posts on the new bridge were smaller in diameter than the original bridge... hmmm... Anyway, here's a pic... http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0641.jpg
  2. Thanks everyone, just wondering though, did any 70s mustangs come with the jag bridge as stock? Because in most pics of 77 stangs they have a bridge cover so its hard to see whether they did... Anyway the bridge on mine looks just as old as the guitar... Another point about the bridge, it's really buzzy... I read somewhere that jag bridges are prone to buzz and the best remedy is to replace them with mustang bridges. Is it worth me buying a stang bridge to go on it? Also, anyone got a 77 pot that they are willing to sell by any chance? Thanks.
  3. Here's mine: 1977 olympic white (aged) maple neck. All original... http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0644.jpg http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0643.jpg
  4. Hi everyone, I'm new here and I have just got my first mustang, a white/yellow 1977 maple neck one and I love it! I bought it as "all original" but I think there might be a few issues (I hope not though!) -Firstly the seller said that it was once Olympic white but has now aged... -Secondly, one of the pots is larger than the other. (The larger one is from '77 but the code on the smaller one is obscured by solder.) - Thirdly, there is a piece of wire (presumably the earth wire) running from the bridge to the control plate but instead of going under the pickguard or through a hole it goes straight across the body! - Also, why is there a random screw in the middle of the pickguard?! Anyway, it's an awesome guitar whatever! Here are some pics: http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0643.jpg http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0644.jpg http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0639.jpg http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0640.jpg http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0641.jpg http://s585.photobucket.com/albums/ss29 ... 0_0642.jpg
