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 thinking of overhauling the electrics completely. Id like to put in a seymore duncan jb/59 combo for the pickups, and simplify the switches and volume/tone knobs. I'll never sell it so I'm not bothered about it losing value, id just like to have it set up the way i want it and to have it looking presentable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Im sure this has been done many times before so if theres any threads, posts, articles etc, that you could point me in the direction of, i think that would be a good start. Pics to follow...
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.
