Newbie (1/14)



  1. I like Jaguar electrics. I don't have one but, I could see me having one. I had a chance to get one a while back and mistakenly let it pass.
  2. I still have the one to my 78 but, I keep it off. I also keep it in the original hardcase I got it with it in 1978. Do the Japanese ones come with the bridge cover also? The reason I ask is because in the store when I seen new ones (It has been years now!) it did not have the bridge cover on it.
  3. Mad Mike I did not know that Mustangs were popular in Japan. I suppose it might have to do with Char, one of the great Japanese guitar artists. I've seen him play with a Mustang on his song "Smoky". This guy is a pretty awesome player. The Japanese have some great musicians in all genres of music it appears.
  4. In the late 70s CBS Musical was using ash on electrics back then. Ash can be both lighter or heavier wood. From my recollection the late 70s Fenders were all heavier bodied guitars. I worked at Fender back then, so I was exposed to the product. I've handled many late 70s guitars. I only have two of that era myself and both are ash. My other one is a 78 brown P Bass with a maple neck.
  5. This one I got before the Marshall DSL5C. I was looking for one of these since 2004 but, they had stopped making them. This one is in great shape.
  6. My 78 has an Ash Body. I will take photos if I get any response on here and post it. This way you can see the way they were from the era I got mine. CBS was using ash on many of their guitars then. Good rosewood was still around and available back then also. The Japanese reissues are cool as well but, I don't know what the bodies are made of.. I read on one of the threads on here someone posted they were basswood bodies. That could be but, I don't know for sure. I do know mine is ash and, I love the way an ash bodied Fender sounds.
  7. It is a reissue Japanese copy of the ones which came out in the late 60s with racing stripes.
  8. I have a black 78 I purchased straight from the factory in Fullerton.
  9. Here is a picture of my 1978 Fender Mustang. I got this brand new from the factory with the hard case. I still have the cover the the bridge as well. It is my first proper electric guitar. I got it when I was 21 years of age. I have many other electrics. Les Pauls, Strats, Teles, and others. I'm getting a noise and it is cutting out. I need to spray some contact cleaner when I get a chance. Mustangs are very cool guitars.
  10. You might want to check out the Graph Tech brand to replace your bridge saddles. They are suppose to be easier on string breakage, if that's an issue with you. If you got the pressed type saddles now, you might also want to consider the stainless steel ones that come on the American Deluxe Strats. I personally like them both. Although some traditional people like the original pressed saddles better, I don't mind the stainless ones that are different yet very effective. I've never tried the graph tech myself but a professional guitarist told me they worked great for him.
  11. Nice guitars! I like the Squier Esquire. Do you like your Jag Stang more than a regular Mustang? I've never seen those at Guitar Center. We're kind of hurtin' for music stores over close to where I live.
  12. Here's is my 1978 Fender Silverface Vibro Champ I rescued from GC's used gear back in June of 1995. I put a Jensen ALNICO magnet 4 ohm speaker in it. I also put JJ Electronics driver and output tubes in it. It still has the original 5y3 rectifier tube and it is working just dandy still! I hope you enjoy these photos:
  13. It's a very light touch thing on my Mustang. I'm use to it after 32 years. If I ever get another Mustang (Japan reissue?), I would run 9s or heavier on it. I have smaller hands but I'll play just about any guitar. If it has strings I like to attempt to strum and pick on it. The only time I have played a guitar that feels a little strange is old hard V necked Fenders. It's been years since I tried those and these days I enjoy playing soft V neck guitars, Both of my Strats have soft Vs.
