Hi all. I'm new to the forum, but after perusing for a couple of days, I'm thinking this is my best chance of getting an answer to my question. The setup: I used to own a Squier Vista Series Jagmaster from the late nineties. I actually still own most of it. While it was in the possession of a friend of mine it suffered a fatal accident and the neck was obliterated. At the time I wasn't using it much, so while I was mad, I didn't do anything with it other than hang on to the remaining pieces. Now I'm wanting to get it back in playing condition. I have everything but the neck, all stock. I know that this version of the Jagmaster had a 24 inch neck, not the Strat length, or the conversion neck on the more recent models. Now to my question... What neck can I put on this thing? Will it accept a 24 inch neck from one of Fender's other models? Thanks for any information anyone has!
Okay, this may sound a little weird. But I can just easily lift the knobs off the guitar. It was already this way when I got it and never took action to fix it. I have no idea how it got this way. It's like they were never actually tightened. My question is, what's the best way to get them tight/locked in place? So I can turn the knobs without worrying that they'll come off.
Hey guys...first timer here so be gentle. Thanks. So my Mustang (CIJ, '04-05, w/ n&b alnico single coils) isn't giving me much from the volume knob. Specifically, 90% of the volume is in the first o'clock that I turn. At max volume, with one slight o'clock turn down it becomes drastically quieter. Turn the knob lower than that and (it's not silent but) it is not at a feasible playing volume. (This problem occurs when I am playing clean and/or through my LPB-1 [clean boost]. When I engage my Big Muff, the volume knob is more reactive and lets me clean up the fuzz.) Do I need to replace the pot? If so, what type of pot? Could it be a wiring issue? Is thems just the CIJ breaks? Something else in my chain maybe (I have done extensive troubleshooting to isolate the issue)? Sorry to say, but I don't know the pots that are currently in there. I bought the Mustang second-hand; I'm guessing the pots are factory-issue. They look split-shaft, like a Tele I once had. Thanks for any advice. I'd like to be able to service my own equipment, instead of running to the shop and dropping dough every time I need some repair/adjustment. But I am stumped here.
