  1. Don't judge a pickup based upon how it sounds in one guitar.
  2. The pickups that come stock in the Jag-Stang are ace. The neck one sounds good anyway, just a Strat one, and the humbucker is actually good, just not necessarily in the Jag-Stang, I've got a friend who took his out to test this and put it in his Strat and it really did sound good, it's most likely the basswood making it sound dull.
  3. They're a very reputable company, I have some of their pickups in a guitar and they're really great. I know a guy who used a Mighty Mite neck for his Telecaster project, and he said it was very good. I'm pretty sure they're Fender liscensed as well.
  4. What the bending hell? I can't write anymore because you've absolutely baffled me. Read this though, hopefully it might help, paying specific attention to Mike's posts, he's a Marshall boffin. http://www.shortscale.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9577 Oh, and no, Marshall amps are not crap.
  5. And a tuno-matic bridge. Fender Japan make a Jaguar the same as Cobain had his, have a look for one of those on Isabishi or something.
  6. Well if you want a Jaguar for a "grunge" guitar you'll be disappointed. If you're set on having a Jaguar for "grunge" however, you'd be best going for the HH Jaguar, not the standard. I'm not sure what they go for, but for a standard Jaguar, second hand you're looking at
  7. It also bends around the headstock unlike the MG65 one. The scratchplate would have the be a replacement as well as pickup covers, switches, and trem arm, the blue is also too dark (even with the flash) to be Daphne Blue, thus is Sonic Blue, so I think it's safe to say that it's without doubt a '69 RI.
  8. Yeah, that's dreadful. That bloke/shop always try to sell way above what the instruments are worth.
  9. Did you ask any questions ? Photos can be misleading, it looks like a sonic blue CIJ 69 re-issue but it could be white & the tuners could have been replaced - you need to ask for info. The decal is the type found '69 RIs, not gold like on the MG65s.
  10. Perhaps the person wanted a headstock the same as the Swinger. Ugly and baffling all the same.
  11. Mustang and Jaguar control plates are very different shapes, more or less opposite in fact.
  12. Haha, that's ace. That serial no. is '96-'97, check the neck stamp if you really want to know. Though I suppose the anniversary sticker conrfirms '96. Got any pictures you could upload? Have you restored it "properly"? As in with a Fender vibrato, and proper wiring and pickup config etc? Wish I could find a Fender in the bin, even if it was a Jag-Stang ;p
  13. S'alright, I made a demo the Spring King here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGgEwpzeOHE and there's a brief sound of what the amp's like clean with gain on 2 and volume on about 2 as well, doesn't really give an idea of the volume you can get, but yeah, if you're interested.
  14. I can keep up with a loud drummer with it, just, 'cause for clean tones you have to have the gain 2, perhaps 3 if you're pushing it. It's a fairly dirty amp to be honest so you might be best looking at a Rocker 50 or something if you're wanting lound spanking clean tones. It's a cracking amp, though, I absolutely love it. I'd assume that the guitar amp'd be mic'd up at just about any gigs though, and if not, then a slight bit of dirt wouldn't make that much of a difference if nothing was mic'd up, in my opinion.
  15. He had a Jaguar Baritone when I saw them in June.
  16. Ah, now you mention it I think I do remember what the indside of rob's looked like, and it having cloth covered wire.
  17. Ah, forgot about the copper. I didn't know they had cloth wiring, though?
  18. (Bah, bloody image resize, #### that noise, they're in the links) This is my main set up now; http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y211/BobArsecake/DSCF1666.jpg Rickenbacker 620 '97 Reissue Mustang Orange AD30HTC Marshall MGA 4x12 Danelectro Spring King Danelecrto Tuna Melt But this is all my other stuff that I don't keep in Manchester; http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y211/BobArsecake/?action=view&current=DSCF1569.jpg
  19. Well it depends which you mean; Fender Japan have fairly recently released the MG65 Mustang reissue which differs from the older '69 reissue by having an uncontoured body, white plastic pegged F Tuners and different colour schemes. The new reissues are more expensive 'cause they're new I imagine, and prettier in my opinion. Apparently they're a bit nicer to play as well, but that's patently down to personal preference. I don't think the pickups are different, and if they are they won't be dramatically so. Best thing is to play them both, I have a '69 reissue and I really like it, but would love to get my hands on a '65 reissue just 'cause I don't really like contours and love white tuners. Also, the build quality won't be too much of an issue 'cause Fender Japan have a very high build quality and control. So yeah, just see'f you can try them out, and if not, just choose which one you like the look of best! D:
  20. RI Jaguar necks are not the same as Jag-Stang/RI Mustang necks. The Mustang neck is thinner and the same as Jag-Stang. Also, don't get a Mustang bridge! D: Just set it up properly!
