  1. thoughts on antiquity II Neck and JB jr on bridge? or both antiquity II
  2. the idea came from playing the Stang and Strat clean and with my new distortion pedal and clean as well, it seems like the Stang sounded muffled to my young ears. http://www.shortscale.org/wiki/index.php?title=Wiring_A_Fender_Mustang this link also made me curious on how this person went almost all new
  3. would you suggest replacing any wiring or pots if I were to put brand new modern day pick ups in it? I played the Strat and it sounds better through my Epiphone Valve Junior. Can that be from the age of the electronics/wiring?? also just a rough guess from anyone on the cost to go new on everything else? or is it a sin to go there guys? I am digging the SD JB JR mod btw =)
  4. Thanks everyone! Paint would remain the same for sure. Tort pick guard seems to be the front runner and my first option as well because its not a plain jane black n white or white and white. I used to have tort on a bass that I gave my best friend and it looks sexy the yellowing of the body is more and the tort & the yellowing feed off of each other in the pics Ive seen. Besides youtube can anyone tell me the difference if there is any between the single humbucker duncan Silenus mentioned and a Strat/Stang/other single coil pups. I look forward to playing and improving to play RHCP, SRV, Nirvana, Blues & Funk guitar. Not as diverse because I do own a strat as well. thats one main reason I view the single coil strat on my mustang expendable. Cosmetically I'd want the guitar to have the true identity of a Fender Mustang so buying vintage or new replicas is still what I'm leaning towards. I'm just discovering/entering a stage where I want to mod my stuff. I put an EMG35dc in my fleabass. Duncan Basslines on my Fender Jazz Bass, and now my mustang! Its def fun to experiment! I am still new to guitar/bass so these questions/thoughts are coming from someone getting started. Thanks everybody I hope to have new pics up once I finish it. Tort with cream covers? Tort with black?
  5. It does have some character and flavor. Thank you! pickups and other changes haven't happened yet, waiting until pay day.
  6. i have an epiphone valve jr head and cab and the combo amp. i love them got the head and cab from craigslist and the combo amp from a pawn shop. mods are popular on them but like you said its "budget"
  7. I'm new to jag-stang. I wanted to get others thoughts of my 72 Mustang. I have had it for a year now. I bought it with the Strat ones in it. In no way am I trying to insult anyone who loves these guitars. I want to ditch the Strat pick ups. They sound nice but I already have Strat. Any advice on pick ups would be awesome. I believe the pick ups and the pick guard aren't original. I want to make it mine. New pick ups are a must. Lindy Fralins? I dont want to put the Fender Japan Mustang reissue ones in but if they are better than I think I will listen too. Black pick up covers, tort or black pick guard? The previous owner also put different tuners on and holes remain and are in sight now the stock tuners are on, see pic I'd love any and all input on my Mustang from people who love these instruments. Open to all ideas! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2049908972752&set=a.2049908932751.2106882.1395317928&type=3&theater http://s1157.photobucket.com/albums/p593/p_man928/ I'm new to forums too =p sorry for any noob things if i did them
