  1. That guitar isn't a reissue of anything. But yep.
  2. These are Hagstrom HIINs. The ones on the left and right are technically HIIN OT (the OT means 'without tremar' - they have stop-tailpieces). Mark Arm famously plays a Hagstrom IIIs, including a sunburst III with a filtertron in the neck position.
  3. Switch cuts the clipping diodes out of the circuit- makes everything sound louder and more open.
  4. Fanks! I do indeed poast mostly on Shortscale, but look at my posts on here... 3000!! Kerr-azzy. It takes a special kind of guitarist to rock a gingham pedal
  5. I make nice Harmonic Percolators covered in gingham. They look extra fancy. Sold out the current batch, but get in touch if you'd like one of the next lot. Demos on youtube, just search 'Fredric Effects'. These ones
  6. Placebo are a terrible cheesy band fronted by a slimy goblin. Bush are terrible cheesy second-wave pretend grungers. Want me to do any more? Green Day? Silverchair?... no?
  7. Correct, but the fact that rehearsal studios use them must mean they're pretty reliable. I'd sooner use an Orange than the solid-state Marshall or Peavy crap some studios use.
  8. Vox and Oranges sound similar to me, just from the stuff I've had to use in rehearsal rooms. Not keen on any of that though- I like my amp to be as clean as possible with plenty of headroom.
  9. I prefer the amp I've got, obviously. It'a mid-seventies silver face twin. These amps and Jags/Jazz0rs love each other. This is what I'd get if I had unlimited space, bigger volvo, played large venues regularly. Fender Super Six... 6x10" nice!
  10. Half the fun of a Jazzer or Jag is plinking the strings behind the bridge.
  11. Get a mustang bridge, fit 10s (Jazzor) or 11s (Jag) and you won't need a horrid ugly buzzstop.
  12. Why did I think from the title that this'd just be a big picture of Brian Molko or guy from Bush?
  13. You won't use the low-cut on a jag if you get one. Jags and Jazzers have similar tonal charactaristics- plinky surfiness, lack of sustain. Jag has marginally less sustain due to shorter scale length. Jag pickups are brighter, Jazz0r pickups are warmer. Jazzmasters are more versatile. People only buy Jaguars because of all the cool chrome (or stainless steel, if you're going japanese).
  14. I don't really get it. Sell the jaguar, buy a jazzmaster. These things cost the same and it'll save you a bunch of work.
  15. Phaha relax, no-one makes a good first impression here.
  16. Welcome to the board. Very nice Jag. I like Jagermeister too.
  17. Yup I think there's utterly no chance of her ever parting with ze mustang, unfortunately Piccy: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oliorchard/100732317/ Incidently, can you spot the guy who's really bored by teen girl squad in this pic? http://www.flickr.com/photos/oliorchard ... 065690931/
  18. Cheers dudes! Well clearcoating would certainly look nice, but hags traditionally have no clearcoat and really thin-feeling finishes, and I quite like that. Plus the finish on my HIII (blue one) isn't really that glossy or deep. Um, and then there's all...that...buffing
  19. Finally, there is some progress. The GK socket is safely embedded in the side of the geetar and the mounting largely hidden with filler. The body was such a basket case when I started that I had no guilt about some serious routing and filling. This said, some of the body-join lines on the back remain (it's an eight-piece body, haha!) So, it's a seafoam green nitro finish. I'm not sure I fancy clearcoating it, but we'll see. The mint duo pickguard is there to give an impression of the final colour scheme. I still need to get a hag one cut by that nice Dazbootman fella.
  20. I'd just go for a mint or white guard, keep it classic looking. Clearcoating the back of the neck in nitro is a very good idea though.
  21. Nopes. I like the neck pickup in my CIJ jazzor, but I did swap the bridge pup for an AV one.
  22. You can make an invisible mod to do something similar: Add a stereo jack to your guitar in place of the existing one, wire the rhythm circuit to one output, the lead circuit to the other. Use a stereo 1/4" lead down to a box at your feet. Have cool switching options in the box you can thwack with your foot. Add two outputs the the box, on for lead, one for rhythm, run them into different amps. Hell, I might even do this with my next guitar.
  23. Couldn't the guitar be CAR? That'd make more sense.
