I have a beautiful CIJ jag with Duncan Hot Jag pickups. Unlike a lot of people, I love the rhythm circuit, with its girth, warmth, and output. I do wish I could get slightly more high end from it though, without sacrificing its other qualities; almost like if the tone knob went another 25% higher. Which mod do y’all recommend to achieve that? Thanks!
I have an ‘02–‘04 Crafted in Japan Fender Jaguar. It came with a Tune-o-Matic bridge: the original/standard kind, with 4mm threaded posts and thumbwheels, mounted at a slight diagonal. The threaded posts/studs are screwed directly into the body wood—there are no pots/bushings/thimbles. My question is, what are my options for replacing/upgrading the bridge using the existing posts (i.e. without having new post-holes drilled)? From what i can tell, all the Mastery, Stay-Trem and Mustang options all mount on 6mm posts (+/- thimbles). (For what it’s worth, my main issue with the ToM in the first place is that it makes the action insanely high, even with the bridge set at its lowest height. I tried shimming the neck but it hasn’t helped much, except to also add some fret buzz [which is irritating given how high the strings still are at the high end of the fretboard...] I did already try a tuneomatic-style bridge with roller bridges, which fit perfectly on the existing posts, but the saddles buzz/“plink” badly — I am guessing the diagonal orientation of the bridge posts means that the strings aren’t sitting squarely in the saddle grooves.)
Hello everyone, I am a big fan of Nirvana. They got me into playing guitar nearly 20+ years ago and the music still to this day inspires my songwriting. I have had 3 Jagstangs over the years which I have mainly bought as collector pieces. For one reason or another they have always ended up being sold or traded for other equipment. The last one I bought (and sold) created a level of regret so I have been on the hunt for a good quality one for about 12 months. Last week I found one in Russia of all places and today it arrived in Australia.. Anyway, getting to the point.. While I am cautious of getting flamed for saying this on the Jagstang forum, I have always found Jagstangs to be bad playing guitars - even after set ups and taking time to bond with them they have never really got much play time. However, on receiving this one today I plugged it in and havent been able to put it down for a couple of hours. I am not sure if the pickups are aftermarket or if its because its a 'CIJ' model or if its just one of the good ones... wow... I am blown away!! Cheers, John
