Hello, I have a telecaster (Phil pro) neck and a mustang floating bridge, pickups, etc. I want to make a DIY good looking jag-stang but I don't know where can I get blueprints with scale. Help to figure out!
I really like the idea of a dark blue (or dark green) JM with matching headstock. There doesn't seem to be any production model matching this description. So I had been thinking of putting one together using body and neck from a UK builder (guitarbuild.co.uk or gspbasses, or another) and doing the paint job myself. Can I get material quality comparable to eg Fender japan this way? I know that there's no resale value in this route, so let's leave that aside for now. Alternatively I could get a reasonably priced JM (maybe a japanese or a classic player. Maybe even a JMascis squier), and repaint. However this would be a much more time-consuming job than starting with a new body, and if I'm painting the headstock then I guess I'll essentially be removing the logo and a lot of the resale value, even if I put a new decal on. I was planning on adding aftermarket bridge, trem and pickups, so that works in favour of a build (so I'm not wasting money on hardware I'll be ditching). I'm trying to get the best Jazzmaster I can within a budget of about £700-£800 GBP. I'm aware of the low resale value of builds and it's not a major consideration. Any suggestions?
I've got a Fender Jaguar I'm looking into modding. I'm planning to put two humbucking pickups into it, but have them coil tapped with out of phase. I would go for the Push Pull knobs, but I'm happy with the standard pots the Jaguar comes with and not planning to do that. I rather like the idea of two three way switches wired up for coil-tap/out of phase like the Pawnshop mustang. I have all the parts I need to get working on it. Just need help in terms of Electronics/schematics since I'm not sure where to wire what to where etc. I've had a look around on the internet for schematics, but I'm still confused to the wires would go. I basically got Got a Ken Custom Fender Jaguar (basically a fancy Classic MIM Jag) [standard Jag Schematics] Two humbucking Pickups with 4 way braids Two Three-Way Mustang Switches Additional wires if needed Any help would be greatly appreciated.
