  1. Prop. He uses it during his live show. It's made of rubber
  2. Does the pot recess?? If it does, it may be a "no load" tone pot. Up to 9 it's normal, but at 10 it bypasses the circuit making it go from volume straight to the input jack
  3. It looks clean. So long as it works, it's not too bad a price. The only thing is that I would play it. No telling what condition how the pots, switching, jacks, etc are in...

  5. White123: WhAt???? 0.o? Even going by synonyms, that didn't entirely make sense grammatically.
  6. Too true. Also thought it was cool that it looks very similar too (minus the J pickup, an extra knob added, and the color and the neck cosmetics) the April fools from Alex years ago.
  7. I was just surprised no one posted about it before as this twitter pic was made in the middle of last year. Guess no one here pays much attention to Panic! I know I don't. This was sent to me by a friend yesterday that happened to see it and knows that my JS is my main guitar.
  8. Where was this at?? I didn't see it when I was there (too bad the guitar isn't blue, but still awesome!)
  9. So has anyone noticed this Dallon Weekes guy had a custom Jag-Stang bass made? It's not a Fender. I can't quite make out the headstock name, and I haven't been able to find any info. Just a pic on his twitter and a few pics of him playing it live. It's Olympic white with a single P pickup, binding, block inlays, jaguar switching, and 3 control knobs on the control plate. I can't post a photo with my phone. http://t.co/imOeiN3d Hopefully that link is valid.
  10. DUDE!! Thank you! I've been trying to find a posting of the book online!!
  11. Try to keep in mind, it is only a tribute, not a full on replica. Neck pickup distance: easy oversight. The logo is still relatively close considering they didn't examine the original with a fine tooth comb. Its not as angled simply b/c it isn't a Stewmac bridge, but a Fender made TOM, if it bugs you, replace it. The finish would be more expensive for Fender to do if it had to be "perfect" everytime, as the sunburst finish is difficult to duplicate exactly every single time. Lastly, I actually prefer a radius that allowed for better action than one that is off like the real deal, so that one "oversight" I label as a positive (but I'm speaking as a person that would actually play the thing as opposed to display). It does have a custom neckplate with a Fender logo Kurt made in an art class, which is a nice touch.. All I'm getting at is that this is a fairly well made tribute instrument designed not to break the bank too much. If they went completely full on like "collectors" would want, then it would cost WAY more.. If anything, yes, its commercialism to cash in on Kurt's legacy, but lets not forget that Kurt himself wasn't completely above selling out either. This particular instrument is a middle ground of sorts to get a relatively close instrument out there while trying to keep it somewhat affordable and within reach to most professional musicians and not just the "collectors" that shell out thousands for a piece of memorabilia just to have it languish in a case or vault. It's meant to be played is what I'm getting at.. Whether Kurt would agree with this is all up for debate, but I'm sure we can all agree that he would want everyone that gets one to actually play it and not treat it as if its some "sacred object."
  12. Actually, even dating websites agree.. and here's the article on Spin to prove it!!! Nickelback are sex repellant!!!
  13. I like to think of them as realizations of those fantasy mockups people here do every once in a while. I'm with u tho, the whole mustang layout really looks best IMO on that body shape..
  14. Mark knopfler and Steve Miller apparently use them o.O Here's that Tele one that wasn't on Eastwoods page http://groshguitars.com/guitars/bolt-on-models/electrajet-vt/
  15. Check these out! Most of them are basically Jag-Stangs but with different layouts, like a tele or Strat-ish.. http://www.wildwoodguitars.com/electrics/don_grosh.htm
  16. I would honestly LOVE to find an inexpensive polyfoam/hybrid case that would fit the JS..
  17. Well, if yr like me, you've discovered that the Jag-Stang is one hard guitar to find a decent case for. I have the Fender case that Fender sells as fitting the Mustang, Cyclone, Venus, and Jag-Stang but will only use it if I have no choice as the Jag-Stang has to literally be FORCED to fit.. This sux... So I started this thread in hopes for us to share collectively cases we've found that actually fit our odd-ball instrument of choice. 1. The Coffin Case.. Pros: Yup, this one fits VERY well.. Cons: Too bad that yr sure to look either like a trendy wanna-be goth or totally ridiculous.. Or both 2. Incase Fender John Mayer gig bag... Pros: very lightweight, protects the guitar like a hardcase, looks great, has a bazzilion pockets, and most importantly, is a hybrid case that FITS!! Cons: only available if you find a store that someone got a John Mayer Strat from but decided not to get the bag, and IF you do happen to find one yr looking at a close to $250 price tag!!! Ouch!! Well, those are my contributions.. Please share yours
  18. Care to elaborate/ enlighten us on said shortcomings?? I think it's pretty accurate minus some Stewmac parts and I believe Kurt's had a shim, but otherwise seems damn close and the price is actually damn good considering what it is...
  19. Honestly bro, all of her fuzzes have such different characters. The Soda Miezer and Hyperion are sorta the Big Muff on steroids. The Legend of Fuzz gives you those lo-fi, almost 8-bit game sound.. As a 'all around' distortion replacement, I love both the Torn's Peaker and the 90. I mean, really it is all dependent on the general sound you want. Whether it's something subtle or something just in yr face/ over the top. I currently own a Soda Meiser and it practically nails the Smashing Pumpkins 'Siamese Dream' fuzz that I loved since I heard it when I was a kid. But it's definitely an extreme sound and not for everyone. With her variety and low price, I'm sure she's got something that will suit yr tastes
  20. http://www.deviever.com/fx/retailers/ near the bottom of the page is a short list of European retailers. Also, Ebay is a great source for Devi fuzz.. And her basic pedals are about $100 US which is AMAZINGLY cheap for a hand made pedal of the highest quality parts...
  21. If yr looking for fuzz, just check out Devi Ever. She is the goddess of fuzz and youll end up with a super quality hand built unit within yr budget... Just go through the demos and see is you find one that suits yr liking... You might like the Torn's Peaker if yr wanting an OD/ratty sound... Devi Ever FX
  22. well, with a trembucker, if you were really careful and accurate, you could actually make it so that the bottom of each rear pole and the top of each front pole caught the string vibration and therefore making all poles equally responsive to the string vibrations, much like the pickups on many Fender bass guitars... the standard spaced HB that came with my JS cant aline like that bc of its spacing.. :\
  23. I liked it for the most part. Thought the neck was great. Thought the body felt wrong. Still can't figure out why it doesn't have the sustain I thought it would. Love the sound of the pickups and the feel of the switches. If the body was that of a regular Mustang and it had more sustain, I think it would be WAY better but still decent. The price is a bit high for the fact it doesn't quite feel like the quality is fully there however....
  24. Mine came stock w/ 9's, but honestly, 10's work WAY better for it's short scale.
