  1. Background: Tele player here. I am looking to give offsets another try but I'm a little scared. I once owned a cheap fender blacktop jaguar and it was an awful guitar. Although it was cheap, the major issue with it was that the neck pocket was completely flat and it would not intonate properly(past the twelve fret it was way sharp and the action was way too high). No amount of playing with the truss rod, bridge, or saddles could fix this, even when it was taken to a professional. Since then, I have decided to never buy a bolt on guitar with a raised bridge. Still, they look so cool and I can't help but want one. I also think they have the best sounding trems. Question: Are there any offset guitars that fender currently sells that come with a properly angled neck pocket? I noticed they fixed the saddles on a lot of these guitars in recent years and I am wondering if they have fixed the neck pocket angle on any of them as well. I know you can shim the neck, but I don't' want to stick a piece of plastic or wood in the neck pocket of my guitar, I want one with the neck pocket cut properly or I don't want one at all.

  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. As my Squire VM Jaguar got stolen, I'm considering MIJ Traditional 60s or MIM Classic Player for upgrade, but I can't test a Japanese model. According to Japanese Fender website, MIJ stock model are having an ''U Shape'' neck, when most of the other Jaguar stock models like MIM Classic Player or American series are made with ''C Shape'' necks. MIJ Traditional 60s https://ibb.co/ffwxs6 MIM Classic Player https://ibb.co/byics6 American Vintage https://ibb.co/n0W8zm So does it mean MIJ Jag are having a thicker or bigger neck? As a player with small hands, it's considerable to have thinner necks because they are more comfortable to play with. Thanks a lot
  5. 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?
  6. I recently got a Jag-Stang body, and I was wondering what would be a good pick for necks, birdges, and pickups? Help me out here, thanks.
  7. I bough a Lake Placid Blue Competition Mustang with non-matching headstock off of eBay. I was expecting the neck radius to be 7.25" but it is 9.5" I was surprised cause looking at Fender Japan's site, all the mustangs have a radius of 7.25" http://www.fenderjapan.co.jp/mg73co.html Is the difference due to a model change? The serial number on mine is Pxxxxxx so it was manufactured 99-02 according to the Internet.
