  1. Hello, managed to get my mitts on a staytrem bridge. Question, is there suppose to be a generous amount of wiggle room when I drop it in the posts? Is that what they mean by a rocker? Thanks in advanced. Jeff
  2. I made a thing, not sure what to call it I stuck Lendy Fralin jazzmaster pickups and a vintage DeArmond pickup taken from a Airline bobcat. Switch is wired like a LP and I left the rhythm circuit in tact. I have a black pickguard and knobs on the way along with a few tweaks and a proper set up I'll be completely in love
  3. Hello, I am building a Jazzmaster and I have a Jazzmaster bridge, but I don't have the tremolo part. Is it possible to use a standard Tune-O-Matic tailpiece with a Jazzmaster bridge instead of the tremolo? I would also want those two parts to be quite close to each other like a standard Tune-O-Matic would be. Thanks.
  4. Hi. I am planning on modding my Surf Green Squire vintage modified jaguar to have 2 4 wire humbuckers, a three way toggle switch, and a coil tap on the neck pickup, however I want to keep the rhythm circuit and low cut switch. (basically similar to a Kurt Cobain jag except only master volume and master tone, neck coil tap, and keeping the low cut switch) I'm 17 and I'm not very good with wiring, also jag wiring is especially confusing. Would anyone be able to help me figure out a wiring diagram for this, or at least help explain it to me? Are there any other mods I should try for this guitar?
  5. I bought a new Sqiuer VM Jazzmaster, and found buzzing and crackling after using the tremolo. I sent it back to the shop. I received the guitar back yesterday, but the fault was not fixed. I checked the bridge to jack ground with a multi-meter and it was open circuit. I made a diagnostic fix by connecting a wire from the jack nut to one of the tremolo screws. (see attached) The static noise has gone completely. I found a diagram on the web showing a ground wire to the bridge posts.(attached) However, I am sure the ground wire is connected to the bridge post
  6. 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), an
  7. I wrote a piece on J Mascis and how to sound like himThought you lot might like a read. https://www.gearnews.com/sound-like-j-mascis-dinosaur-jr-mr-big-muff/
  8. I've finally got some time to get round to fixing up my Jag. I got it as a gift for my 18th birthday, (im 30 now so its been kicking about in this state for awhile) the dings were there when i got it. I didn't care as its all my folks could afford at the time and i was still over the moon with it. I'm looking for a few pointers for restoring the finish initially. As you can see its had a fair old whack to the back of the body, going right into the wood. I'd like to keep it sunburst if possible, but if that proves too difficult then a single colour would be fine. Also, I'm think
  9. Long, long ago, I owned a 1968 (i think, it had block inlays) Jaguar, and one thing I remember loving about it was that the trem-arm (or whammy bar) had no thread. It just kinda pop/snapped into place and stayed there and popped out when you pulled it out. Easy-peasy lemon squeezey. After not owning an offset guitar for many years, I recently purchased an MIM Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster. I almost immediately noticed that the trem-arm is threaded, and needed to be screwed in, like a Stratocaster trem-arm. My question: Can anyone with a true vintage Jazzmaster tell me if this was
  10. I am new to this forum, but a long time fan of the Fender Jazzmaster. I love to chat about these guitars, and have a healthy understand of their history! I work at Chicago Music Exchange, and have a '65 Jazz that was refinished. Here is a photo: http://i.imgur.com/Qwvdw8k.jpg Thanks for letting me be a part of the discussion!
  11. Hey there, peeps! My name is Matt and I'm aspiring to be a guitar luthier with my own repair/mod shop. And with a recent Yamaha EG-112C body going out of commission (I was gonna hard tail it permanently but it'd be too much work as of right now), I decided to start from scratch. With a Jazzmaster Body! I have a lot of things I need to decide and I decided to come to this forum with questions and polls galore to help me decide what I am doing. The neck is 12.75" so it's gonna be a Fender standard scale length. The neck pocket almost fits into a standard Tele neck pocket(but I only tried it in
  12. Tomorrow I'm seeing a guy who is selling a new 2015 Classic Player Jazzmaster, but the guy is asking for a very low price and I think he is kind of shady. I have my doubts about the guitar being a fake, has been somehow damaged or it's a stolen guitar. I would appreciate if you guys could help me a bit and tell me what should I look for to spot if it's real or fake and, since I'm kind of new to guitars, how could I tell if the neck is damaged or has any serious damage in any other parts. he sent me these pictures and told me the serial number was Mx15569216 Thanks a lot! and I
  13. Hi, This is my first post on here and I have a question. The other day I saw one of my favourite bands, Manic Street Preachers and saw that the guitarist was using a Jazzmaster. I was just wondering which model he was using. I thought it may have been a 65 but I was told it was probably a pre-64 vintage. Could anybody body get more specific and which current JM would do a good job of this sort of music? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUATRiNnMNs. Thanks in advance
  14. The recent Fender newsletter kicks off a Jazzmaster campaign calling it the "Hero Of The Underground". With the many jazzmaster models available in 2015 is there one you prefer? [Fender Link] [jag-stang.com Blog Post]
  15. I'm going to replace my volume and tone knobs for my fender jazzmaster classic player special(made in mexico). I want them to be black instead of offwhite because im also getting black pickup guards, gold pickguard, and a gold hardware. What kind of knobs do I need? I can only find US Split shaft knobs on all parts, but would those not work?
  16. I've got some jazzmaster pickups on order to put in my CIJ jag. I wanted the jazz pickups with the short scale. Anyone who's done this who can give me any tips? Obviously I'm going to have to route out a bit for the wider pickups, but how deep should I go? Probably not as far down as the original route as the jazzer pickups aren't as deep as the jaguar. Also, any suggestions as to pickup placement? I don't know if the bridge location allows for the jazz bridge pickup to have its pole pieces positioned exactly where the jaguar's would be. Even if it were, perhaps it would sound better a
  17. Long story shor: I was replacing the stock "Duncan Designed" pickup covers and switching them for Fender Aged White ones. To my surprise the stock pickup covers were glued on. The neck pup cover came off without too much trouble, however, the bridge pup was damaged in the process. I took it to my local tech and he says the coil is damaged and recommends getting a new pickup vs rewinding them. Honestly the stock bridge pup (Model JM-101B) was just a little to shrill for my personal taste. I could get an ok tone when rolling the tone knob down but then switching between pickups is a pain in
  18. Hey guys check this http://tonereport.com/news/fender-squier-announces-vintage-modified-baritone-jazzmaster http://www.gak.co.uk/en/squier-vintage-modified-baritone-jazzmaster-antigua/101124
  19. SO! what have you done to change your gear? I've changed my trusty Squier Jagmaster (my workhorse, sunburst) to having tele style knobs, had to change all the internal wiring since I somehow managed to snap all of the wires, and replaced the bridge pickup with a Dimarzio Super Distortion (creme) and this has played at every show I've done, including places like Disneyland, The Cavern, the Royal Albert Hall..the list goes on, but even though its honestly abeaten up, cheap P.O.S, I love it to death and the tone from it is KILLER! I'm also getting my 62 RI Jaguar (CARed) modded a fair bit since
  20. I'm planning to build a Jazzmaster but, i'm having a real hard time with the color. It's a Black guard with Cream covers and knobs. I've thought about Forest Green like, Thurston's Signature. In this picture it looks fine. But in the 2nd picture it looks really pale and a lot lighter. I've also thought about a Sapphire Blue. Thoughts? My last resort, would be a white. You can find a white Jazzmaster pretty easily, I want something different.
  21. Hi guys, what a wonderful forum this is! I stumbled upon this place whilst trying to find a way to do some mods to my Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster guitar. Great guitar, but since I don't use the Rhythm circuit that much, and I found this topic => http://www.jag-stang.com/forum/topic/5868-help-jaguar-wiring-mod/ with this picture I wondered if a similar thing could be done to the Jazzmaster? This is like perfection in my eyes. The jazzmaster would kill with these kind of options. So, any diagram depicting this mod but for the Jazz floating around? I can't seem to find it.
  22. I'm thinking of building a Jazzmaster, and I've heard that the guys at Mojo Tone make really awesome custom pickups. Thoughts? And are they Expensive? Also thinking of putting a humbucker into a jazz master cover.
  23. So i'm thinking about getting a Jazzmaster. I've had my eye on the Classic Player's Jazzmaster for a bit of time but, I have a few concerns. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender-Classic-Player-Jazzmaster-Special-Electric-Guitar-104907183-i1397677.gc 1.The Bridge I've heard that people usually have problems with string popping out on the stock Jazzmaster Bridges. Do you guys have a preference between the mustang bridge and the mastery bridge? 2 The Pickups I've played the Vintage Modified Jazzmaster before, and it was a pretty good sounding guitar. Are the stock pickups on the clas
  24. Some new Fender Custom Shop models. Always a bit turned off on the prices of custom shop models... but they certainly look nice! http://www.fender.com/custom-shop/series/limited-edition/ Limited La Cabronita “Gato Gordo” Jaguar Limited Jazzmaster Pro Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster
  25. Hey, I recently got a Jazzmaster and I was wondering if it was possible to use the Lower Switch Assembly instead of the toggle switch. I also thought about adding 2, 3-Way switches so that I can split the coils (I have two humbuckers), is it possible to add the coil-tapping switches? I've never really understood wiring diagrams so I could use some help. Thanks!
