  1. westtexasred always has the coolest gear, i envy him at times.
  2. yea, the bridge covers for mustangs, jaguars, jazzmasters, strats teles etc are garbage for palm muting. they look nice, but there is a reason they got the "ashtray" association, better ashtray than bridge cover i suppose.
  3. cool cool, seems you now know the origin of color. i have seen people that were able to take off the re-fin(if its just on top) to reveal the original finish. its a bit of trick and i wouldn't try it unless the top coat was really horrid and you hated it, but as you said it seems good right? so rock on!
  4. have you taken the guard off? if you do i would be willing to bet that some of the original paint is on the back, perhaps there could be some in the routes and neck pocket as well. i would be willing to be its an old re-finish, mainly becuz when black was introduced they switched from nitro to poly
  5. righto, glad it worked out for you. its a cheap trick, but to solve pretty much all of my grounding woes with my jag-stang(same setup as the mustang) i just took the snip from a high e string and shoved it under the bridge plate to the control plate grounding both. its a cheaters way, but its relatively hidden since the plates almost touch anyway, and the guard is right there to sneak the string under.
  6. actually i went looking and couldn't find it... i know they made one, but perhaps they discontinued it.
  7. altho this a bass, its still pretty rad. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SX-Ursa-4-Rn-3TS-Left-Handed-Bass-Guitar-New-/390685209084?pt=Guitar&hash=item5af6a731fc
  8. al(ex) is never on anymore so the spam spreads far and wide
  9. the bridge is ajusted by two screws at either end. ajust the neck, just do it and stop second guessing me. if your fretting out before the first 5 frets the neck is over ajusted, just relax it a bit.
  10. i think agile makes a left jazzy lookalike.
  11. sounds like the neck is over ajusted. relax the trus rod a qtr turn or so.
  12. i used to use it after, but that was cuz my dirt pedal liked to be up front. its all personal taste, tho i did read something recently that broke it down to "as it is supposed to be" but then said "many great artists did not follow this.
  13. just get yourself a step bit. they look like cones with layers, usually about 7 bucks at a hardware store, you can get really nice ones for 20-30, but the 7 dollar jobby will do just fine, and use a drill press if you can
  14. i would just make the holes slightly bigger, but since you don't want to do that i believe that any generic split shaft pot will fit. with the exception of certain push pulls and extended shafts.
  15. they have really only just jumped in price, i remember being able to score a compstang for 400-500 usd, same for a jaguar(jap reissues) if anything, i think the cp series jags are decent. but then again i have heard the squiers are great, just throw on a mustang bridge and call it a day
  16. im not a fan of the modern player stuff, i like the feel of the vintage stuff, so i would get a second hand jap re-issue of the mustang or jaguar. thats just me tho. others like the flatter radius and the bigger frets. personally, i like the small fretwire and 7.25 radiused boards.
  17. ten years ago i would have never imagined that they would re-issue the coro, starcaster, or even used the marauder name again, but they did! i def don't think the wildwood will ever come back, maybe as a crazy custom option, but thats a strong maybe.
  18. if its a vintage neck, and vintage f-keys with vintage bushings they should fit just fine.
  19. good choice. i generally go for overdrive pedals rather than distortion and just rely on my playing style and amp to do the rest.
  20. the jay turser stuff is hit and miss. i had a white falcon copy i found at a pawn shop that was rather nice. it was about 115 bucks, basically brand new, and it even had a burns vibrato on it, but the frets needed some major work done so it could be playable.
  21. to be honest tho, at the time the starcaster came out fender was bombing in general, quality control was non existent and the company was suffering for a few years. I don't think the starcaster will be around for very long, my guess. 3 years top end before they nix it. Don't get me wrong, i love the starcaster, my buddy fredo in downy has a 76 that is a pretty rad lil guitar, and the coronado is always on my list of "cool" and even tho they re-issued that, i don't see it doing very well, but probly better than the starcaster.
  22. i don't think they will, it was sort of a bomb the first time, and the re-issue didn't sell very well either.
  23. i bought an sx strat shortscale in sparkle pink (LH) and converted it to righty just so i could do an riff like jimi hendrix. the nut isn't really right so i have to cut another one, but its was like 79 bucks, and shipping was either free or really cheap as well, not a bad guitar at all.
