Hi, so I’m a wiring noob and needing some help with the wiring I have in mind. I’m upgrading both pups in my JS. In the bridge I’m putting in a Seymour Duncan P-Rails, and in the neck a Lace Chrome Dome (or DiMarzio Area 67). (Two slide switches and Tone and Vol.) What I want to be able to do if possible is wire the neck switch to toggle between the neck/neck+bridge(parallel)/bridge. The bridge switch I want to wire to split the p-rails, rail/humbucker(series)/p-90. So, what I need is a diagram if possible and some advice about the switches. I assume i’ll need two 3-way on/on/on slide switches? Any help is greatly appreciated.
I ordered a Jag-Stang from Japan, I have had problems with the neck since I got it in the 90s. Since the neck doesn't fit the neck pocket perfectly, it rotates up and down very easily. This is the main reason I don't use it more often. I have taken my guitar to a respected guitar technician to solve the problem numerous times, unfortunately to no avail. We tried extra screws, we tried padding the neck pocket with a snug guide - these only seemed to work until the next time the guitar took a knock - which is unavoidable. The last thing we discussed was to set the neck (glue it in place), but we were both against this idea at the time since the irreversible nature of the procedure. I am now reconsidering this approach. As far as I can tell, I would need to cutting a groove to access the truss-rod, but is there anything else I should consider before attempting this myself? I mean, it's just glue right?
No secrect that fender has been making fsr guitars for quite some time now(as far as i can rember back,....) but look at these Beauties even the saddles are diff, and USA MADE all we get is made by the cort factory-squire edition (horrible pups by the way....can't even split the hb wouthout pullin it apart...)

I'm really GASing for a Mustang right now I've always wanted a mustang ever since I laid eyes on a 69 competition in the Teen Spirit video, I love the way it looks, and one of my favourite musicians used one too, so I really wanted one. I'm split between getting a KC competition signature simply for the stripe (shame about the non matching headstock though) or just picking up something else instead. I've never played a mustang, only ever seen one in a store. I own a Jaguar instead and I really like the neck, are they similar? oh, plus I'm also enquiring about a Custom Shop Mustang of a customised 69 competition and should get a quote around wedesday at the latest. I'm trying to get the price down a bit since essentially all I want is a different paint job haha. I hope it works. I asked for a quote on " a replica of a 1969 Competition Mustang in Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock with just 'Fender' in cream, not 'Fender Mustang' (like lefty models) and with a black hot rail in the bridge and 250k pots, so essentially a standard mustang with vintage replica paint job " - Im thinking of sending them my jaguar neck and having that insteadg If it doesnt cost too much (it wouldnt make sense if it did just for paint haha) then I'll get one and will officially have the first USA mustang in over 30 years win. HOWEVER, if I decide not to get it, what would you recommend in the way of Mustangs? I like the practicality of the KC's with the low profile switches and humbucker, but struggling to justify the pricetag for essentially a standard mustang with a humbucker. what would you do? do you think its worth it?
