  1. Hello, I need a replacement pickguard for my 1996 MIJ Jag-Stang. I was hoping Fender would sell me one from the MIM production line however they told me it wouldn’t fit because Japan uses the metric system so the new Jag-Stang would be slightly different. Instead they recommended that I buy on from WD Music. I contacted that vendor because the description was confusing but I got a much more confusing answer : « It [the pickguard] is made to fit the American made Jag-Stang, It will not fit the Japanese models. The Japanese models are not consistent from year to year especially the 90’s » I thought there was only two Jag-Stang made in the US. One delivered to Cobain and the other kept by Fender. Am I wrong ? Was there really a US manufactured Jag-Stang at some point ? Does anyone has an original pickguard for sale? Willing to pay a good price for it. Or maybe a place where I can get one to recommend ? any experience buying one from WD ? thanks Pat.
  2. Several years ago I posted about how I was kind of disappointed in my Jag-stang. The output seemed kind of weak, the intonation wasn't great and the wolf tones on the low E string around the 12th fret were horrible. I recently decided to just see what I could do with it. I was nervous to mod it, since I really wanted to keep all the original parts. So, I decided to just do a full swap of the electronics, pickguard included. While it still has some issues that I haven't been able to figure out, swapping out the pickups was by far the best decision I've made in terms of upgrading. The intonation is still a bit rough, but seems better with the right gauge strings. I've tried different strings, but I mostly used to play with the Slinky Hybrid strings and they just don't seem right for this guitar. Now I'm just using a standard set of 10's and it feels much better. I considered a new bridge, but for right now I'm pretty happy with it, so I'll save that for later (if needed). For the pickups I decided on a Seymour Duncan JB SH-4 for the bridge position and a custom shop Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates (strat sized) for the neck. I went with a tortoise shell pickguard that came with copper shielding. I then shielded the entire cavity with copper tape. I got new 3-way slide switches, new output jack (pure tone multi-contact to keep a tight fit), new push-pull pots and added a metric toggle switch for pickup selection. To add the pickup selector switch, I got a custom control plate with 4 holes; one for the toggle, two for the pots and the last for the output jack. The Mustang/Jag-Stang pickup selection method never seemed ideal to me, so that's one of the reasons I added the toggle switch. The bigger reason, though, is that I wanted to use the 3-way slider switches for series/parallel/coil split control for both bridge and neck pickups. The push-pull pots add even more versatility with a phase flip for the neck pickup by pulling the volume pot and a master parallel/series control by pulling the tone pot. This gives a crazy number of combinations for a wide range of tones. All in all, I believe it's something like 42 options. The bridge pickup is great for heavy stuff in the series humbucker mode. The neck Is a bit boomy and dark in series humbucker mode, so I usually either run it in parallel or split. But my favorite sounds involve both pickups being on in different configurations (coil split/parallel, etc). The master series switch is really only useful in a few cases, in my opinion, like with both pickups in coil split mode. The phase flip offers some really interesting tones, too, and it can really vary based on the selected mode of the pickups. The main thing I think I would have done differently if I were to redo this project would be 500K pots, since I just went with 250K ones without really thinking about it. I feel like some combos are a bit too dark and having 500K pots would give more room for that top end to shine. You can always roll it off with the tone knob, but you can't add it in. 😕 All in all, the build took a little time, because I wanted to tread carefully and make sure the wiring was all going to work properly. I had to sort of piece together bits of schematics from different sites. I also found it a bit difficult to manage the wiring since the Jag-Stang body cavity is so limited on space. I initially wanted to turn the bridge pickup to have it parallel with the strings, rather than angled. But I really didn't want to dig into the body of the guitar. As it is, I have all the original electronics mostly still together on the original pickguard and control plate. I'm pretty happy that the look of the guitar isn't too radically different from the original and I didn't have to modify any original parts. If anyone is interested in the schematics, I could probably draw that up. I never put together a full document, as I just worked in pieces, hand-drawing the wiring for sections. Let me know what you think! Before After These images were taken many years apart with drastically different lighting. I tried to color correct a bit without going too crazy. I think the "after" image is closer to the true color, but it definitely looks different depending on the light. The warmer the light, the more it brings out the greenish tint in the paint. Here are some images before the rewiring process: And here are some during the rewiring process:
  3. 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!
  4. Hey guys! Obligatory new to the forum post, here. I just picked up my 2002 Fiesta Red Jag-Stang on Friday of last week, and I'm head over heels in love with this instrument. However, I seem to be having some tone issues. For reference, I am running my Jag-Stang through a beat up Marshall DFX 100, a You Dirty Rat pedal, Nu Tube Screamer, and a Rusty Fuzz pedal. The JS has a Texas Special and an SH-4 JB in it, so my tone should be perfect, but everything sounds too bassy and muddy. Distortion doesn't really offer the crunch that I really want through this guitar like it does with my Fender Duo Sonic. I've tried messing with the EQ on my amp and lowering/raising the pickup heights. I'm kinda running out of any ideas, and any help would be appreciated!
  5. Hey ya'll, new member here but I'm in a bind. I'm looking for the screws to a jag-stang that my buddy has in his possession. It's got some work that's gotta go into it, but most importantly is I'm missing the screws for adjusting the bridge height for the action. The pic shows the ones I'm missing. Any of ya'll know where I might be able to find the screws? If not, what are my options for this? Thanks for any help!
  6. Hi folks, it's about my beloved 1995 Jag-Stang... I managed to swap stock humbucker with DiMarzio DP100. As I hoped sounds are way better ! To solder my DP100, I used the attached wiring diagram. It's kind of good but not perfect. With this diagram, switches works almost as expected, except with switch 1 on bridge position + switch 2 on series position, which works as "off pickup position" (no sound). I want to use this "off position" to make "out of phase" sound (all other positions have to stay "in phase"), but I can't find anywhere how to do. Any help can bee provided will be greatly appreciated :))))))) Thanks for reading. Cheers.
  7. So apparently, a photo on Instagram from someone at Fender hints at a possible reissue of the Jag-Stang, just though everybody would like to get a look at this thing. Interesting color, looks like they are using a slug/screw arrangement on the bridge pickup (maybe an actual Seymour Duncan JB or similar this time - rather than a piss poor attempt at something else). I hope it's true and they are bringing this one out. https://www.instagram.com/p/BKrOUg_D0oE/?taken-by=otisserie I tried embedding it and told me it's an "unsafe operation" whatever the heck that means.
  8. http://justanotherpunkblogger.tumblr.com/post/158132225931 Hi Folks! In the above picture (assuming it works) you should see my Jag-stang project. It's a Warmoth body with 70's Mustang control plate. I am posting this in the Jaguar forum because of the neck, and my suspicions regarding it's origin. I bought it for a steal, specifically because the seller could no longer definitively prove it's origin. The neck features pearl inlays, black side-fret markers, a single string tree, and vintage neck heel-access truss adjustment. The stamped date has long since been lost in a refinish... and the logo was wiped away. It looks like 70's style F tuners were the original tuning machines for this particular neck. Supposedly the head stock has been reshaped so I cannot, with confidence, use that to determine the neck's original source model. Near as I can tell, I've come across a '65. This was about the time that pearl inlays replaced clay dots, but I cannot be sure because I don't know if Fender delayed putting binding on these same necks until sometime after introducing the pearl inlays. Can anyone shed some like on whether any other guitar model years might fit my neck's description? Please let me know if the link worked, and more pictures of the neck are ready if it did. It is a very old feeling neck, and I am proud to own it regardless of origin, but I would very much like to be certain of where it came from, even if I cannot prove it. Thanks! Grungemaestro
  9. Just picked up a 96' Sonic Blue Fender Jag-Stang and I naturally want to upgrade the stock pups as I do with all my guitars. I am a bit perplexed however as I favor p90's the majority of the time. My Jazzmaster has Duncan Antiquity II's that are perfect for it, my Jaguar has Bareknuckle Stockholm's that are dark and perfect for it, My Fender Super-Sonic has a Duncan Phatcat in the neck and a Bareknuckle Supermassive HSP (humbucker sized p90) and it is magical. I like Duncan and see that most people do the Duncan JB upgrade, but I am torn as I have a bit more love for the Bareknuckle pups and the Supermassive is perfect for a great noisy yet clear "Alternative vibe". I see much talk about F-spaced pickups and I am not sure I know what that even mean. Does anyone know if these guys would fit and or does anyone have any experience with Jag-Stangs and P90's? I have looked and looked everywhere and have not found anyone that has put P90's in a Jag-Stang. Duncan's to Bareknuckle and in between, any recommendations on some amazing pickup upgrades that might fit my needs? And lastly, does anyone know where I can get a replacement Tremolo bar, (yes, unlike most, I actually use mine). Thank you in advance! https://bareknucklepickups.co.uk/main/pickups.php?cat=p90s⊂=humbucker_sized_p90s&pickup=supermassive_hsp90
  10. Hi! I'm new here but could anyone tell me what Ruban Nielson from Unknown Mortal Orchestra has next to his volume knob? And that red thing on his pick guard? Is this a mod of some sort? what kind of mod? Thank you!
  11. my tuners are in desperate need of replacement due to it being abused by the previous owner. they are wore out bad. my question is will the fender model number 099-2040-000 fit it ... i need this info ASAP
  12. gotta say everything i have every want to know about the jagstang including set up and tricks to this and that since getting my jag i have found here so thank you !!!
  13. Hey guys! I'm totally new to soldering and wiring and all that, so I decided that my Jag-Stang will be the red-headed stepchild of my collection, and endure all my abuse. I have decided to rewire my Jag-Stang like so: And for some reason, I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong? My single coil has an output of 6.8k, and when I tap it with my pliers, I don't hear anything unless I turn my amp all the way up past-55%. I'm still using a "dummy" humbucker until my GFS Crunchy Rail comes in the mail.
