  1. Sorry, a few here. Not all mustangs. Please forgive me:)
  2. Picture of the whole family together, apart from the tele, which is being sprayed at the moment:)
  3. Sorry, not played it. Would like to have a go though:)
  4. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hodson-GT-500-Mustang-AWESOME-electric-guitar-Jaguar-Jazzmaster-/141012543212?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item20d500a6ec Not sure if this has been covered yet? Interesting one though:)
  5. No, It' a short scale jaguar neck. Same as the mustang. Same headstock though:)
  6. And for my next project.................... Just have to wire it up. Its a nightmare:(
  7. Well, here she is. Not the best photo, but you get the idea. Couldn't source the correct logo, but was happy with the one that ended up on there.......................
  8. Just worked out what the problem with the switches are!!!!!!!!!! The ebay seller listed them as compatible with the Jaguar/Mustang, but I've just realised that the mustang switches have 3 positions. These are either on or off and are obviously just for the Jag!!!!!!!!!!!! Doh!
  9. Got an exciting delivery this morning of some nice little parts! Spent this morning fitting everything and it's starting to look like a guitar now! Everything went together nicely, however the squier pots are too large for the plate. The other problem I encountered was that the selector switches don't line up with the scratchplate screw holes. Its weird because they genuine fender items. Perhaps they are meant for the US mustang? I also ended up just fitting two genuine fender mustang single-coils. They were brand new and were only £12 each, so I couldn't say no. I may end up fitting the hot-rails though. Jobs still left to do then....................... Get new pots or modify the plate Sort the selector switches problem Wire the guitar up Fit nut Fit string tree Send the neck away for custom Fender logo Maybe purchase a hot-rails
  10. Yeh, I almost bought a matching headstock one a few years back. A UK seller on ebay had one imported, fitted two EMG pickups and decided it wasn't for him. It only ended up selling for £390. I really regretted not bidding later on.
  11. Thanks Daniel, so far around £300. All I have to pay for now is the headstock logo.
  12. Yes, but as Daniel has said, the japanese have 2 versions of LPB. Dark LPB (Think its called OLB) and normal LPB. Their standard version of LPB is very light, which was what the used on the matching headstock versions. Their reissues with lacquered headstocks were all Dark LPB.
  13. Will do. It's a genuine Fender Jap reissue, finished in Dark LPB. Yep, ebay purchase! I almost bought a complete one a few years back with matching headstock, then I discovered that those ones were normal LPB. Far too light to match Kurt's. I realise Dark LPB is wrong too, but its a very close match to Competition Burgundy.
  14. Nice! I always think you appreciate a guitar more when you build it yourself too.
