  1. I been frequenting these forums and this site for about 2 years now and never made an account but made one today to share with a challenge of some sorts which I am doing. Basically, I call it the Squier Jag-Stang. Using the cheapest parts available on eBay I am trying to make a replica Jag-Stang using parts from China. May update with photos in the future!
  2. The high e on my guitar is buzzing to the point at which when i play it, it makes a clicking noise and does not last, it's slightly better on fretted notes but still noticible. How can i fix it?
  3. Hello everyone I have a squier jaguar with duncan designed sensors. I want to make a cheap mod pickup. I want to replace the stock magnets with alnico 5 or alnico 2. Tell me whether it is worth it to do? Is there a difference in the diameter of the magnets of the stratocaster pickups?
  4. Hi everyone! Longtime viewer but a first time poster! My apologies as I’ve been using the wisdom you provide here for years without providing any of my own, so serves me right for my current conundrum! Here’s hoping you can help me, everyone! I bought a (presumably) 2012-14 C.I.I. (Crafted in Indonesia) Surf Green Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar and a Sonic Blue Jazzmaster. They are both SWEET guitars, set up great from the factory (albeit with rubber-band-like 9s or maybe even 8s I promptly removed. I play my MIJ Jagu w/12s, as a point of contrast…) and I swapped the “Duncan Designed” Jazzmaster pickups for American Vintage ones no problem…but… * I cannot for the life of me get my lead pickup to work in ANY capacity! I have NO idea what to do! * Okay, I’m pretty familiar with the Jaguar pickup selector system as I’ve been playing my 90s MIJ for years, and the logic I went through to rule things out is below… Where have I gone wrong? [Keep in mind, I’m an experienced player, but a COMPLETELY AMATEUR electrician and DIY-repairman, so I won’t take any “did you try….” remarks as condescension. I just want to learn!] 1. The rhythm pickup works just fine… Both using the dedicated rhythm circuit (at the “top” of the body when across my knee, playing) and the tone/volume wheels both work fine. 2. Using the lead selector switch at the “bottom,” it works just fine tone/volume knobs work just fine. 3. The bass cut switch also works just fine when using the rhythm pickup only with the “lead circuit.” 4. When I try to use both pickups, I get nothing… it sounds as though the pickups are indeed switched on, but only barely… 5. When I try to use the lead pickup alone, I get nothing. Dead. 6. I have concluded that it must be a bad switch, no? I am pretty awful at soldering for sure, but also: I can’t find a wiring diagram for the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar… it’s a bit different (or at least mine is?) from the wiring diagram included in the Fender Vintage 65 pickups package I got. In fact, it’s quite different. Could it be that I have installed the wrong pickups in the wrong places? For one, the colors of the wires are frustratingly backward in that the stock rhythm pickup (“Duncan-Designed”) I pulled from the guitar had a black and yellow wire attached and the lead pickup had a black and a white wire attached… If the wiring diagram included in the Fender American Vintage 65 package is to be believed, it’s the opposite: lead pickup has a yellow wire and rhythm has a white wire. Also, the black ground wire went someplace completely different than this diagram suggests? When I removed the stock pickups, I tried to reconnect everything to where it was, but now it’s a mess of solder and no signal… If you DO know how to help, what’s the best way to do it? Start from scratch and pick up [no pun intended ] some new switches? Is it a bad wire or bad new pickup from the box? Should I give this to a professional at this point? No clue, whatsoever… but mighty frustrating! ** Incidentally, because I’m a complete idiot, I don’t have a good picture of the “before” (of course…) for the lead circuit. I anticipated this rhythm one giving me more trouble, but lesson learned there… So if anyone has looked under the hood and snapped a photo of what the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguars are “supposed to look like” stock, please please please post a picture! That alone would help massively! I can post some pictures later in the day! Thanks in advance for any help!
  5. Hey, I'm new to modding guitars and I'm getting a squier jaguar soon that I want to change up. The most common comment I see about the jaguar is that its rhythm circuit is only useful for certain things like the woman tone. I feel like the rhythm circuit would be so much more useful and versatile if you could switch between pickups while it was activated. This could allow for an outrageous amount of tones from one guitar, and my idea is putting in a Gibson-style three way toggle as part of the rhythm circuit, and keeping the lead circuit wired-up with the three selector-switches and the hi-pass. If you're worried about signal/tone being lost due to more being put in the way of the original signal, I suppose you could wire up the lead circuit with a toggle switch instead of the selectors and keep the hi-pass switch. Due to not having done any of this stuff before, I'm here to see if this is actually possible; if there would be substantial signal/tone loss; and how one would go about wiring all of that up. Thanks!
  6. I recently bought a Squier Vm mustang and it plays great when the two pickups are On and in the same direction, but if only one pickup is on or if the two are out of phase, there is some buzzing. When I listen closely it seems the buzz is still there when the two pickups are on but its very quiet. It just gets louder when I only one pickup is on, and even louder if both are out of phase! Should I shield my guitar? I know I'm probably going to change the bridge soon but the sound I hear is not the bridge it has something to do with the pickups.
  7. Don't know if anyone else heard about this: http://www.fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0302200540 I'm definitely interested in this.
  8. 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 the ass because the neck would be really super muddy. I love the stock neck pickup (Model: JM-101N) My question is: Is there another pickup anybody can recommend that is just a tad mellower without having a big difference in output? I'd like to keep the neck pickup if I could. I've been trying to compare and contrast online but can't really find any spec info on the JM-101B and JM-101N vs other models. All I know is they have Alnico 5 Magnets. Can anybody help with this topic? Any advice would be great.
  9. 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
  10. 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 my trusty squier is beginning to die after 5 years of hardcore abuse. I picked this up from my favourite store, and some guy bought it for like £800 and had it for A DAY and played it once, decided he didnt like it and traded it back in, so I came down after christmas about 2 years ago and managed to pick it up for about £390 with all the case candy, the film still on, and all the other junk. SCORE! ANYWAY, thats the story, but now onto the main subject, modding. I've just recently sent it off for a couple of mods. - Its getting 250k pots installed (it has 1meg) since I hate the on/off feel it has at the moment with no sweep -a new pickguard (I believe its gonna be white mother of pearl or something), -a toggle switch installed (similar to the KC model) since the switches are hard to change at speed, -and its being routed in the bridge for a Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash humbucker I picked up when visiting family in Canada for $120 since frankly, I hate the single coil in it, yet the neck is perfect to me. Although I may get another Super Distortion since its worked out pretty good for me in my jagmaster. I'm also contemplating changing the tuning pegs to Grovers and all the chrome hardware to a gold colour (it has gold straplocks and the colours matched pretty good) I'd also be pretty interested in a red/black burst or something. I'll put some pictures up when I get it back! now its your go
  11. I recently got a vm mustang at my local shop, and decided to mod it! Put a JB in the bridge position, 500k pots, and a TOM. I basically made a KC stang. I want to put a red comp neck in too. Pics to come!
  12. So I just got my first Jaguar. I got a vintage modified squier one because I got it durring a big sale, have always wanted a jaguar, & plan on doing a lot of work to it to make it my own. I know I need to switch the tremolo system for a locking one and I guess get it all set up. Anything anyone on here would suggest to me to do it (other than the "don't get a squier" comment) to get it to the best jaguar it can be?
  13. Hey! I just recently got a new Squier Vintage Modified Mustang and its a great guitar, except for the bridge. It was awful (buzzes, strings popping out, etc.) so I decided to take the bridge off of my Modern Player Jaguar, which is a tuneomatic, and put in on my mustang considering both have the same neck radius. Well I took it off my Jag and made the posts bigger on the tuneomatic and dropped it in very easily. It is very sturdy and I dont see anything wrong, except for the action. The action is WAY too high off of the fret board. I will post pictures to see if anyone knows how I can fix this if it is even fixable. Maybe I should just get another bridge? I would really like to be able to just use the tuneomatic if possible. Also I am completely new to fixing and modding my guitars by myself. I used to have a luthier do it but it got too expensive. This is the bridge on it now This is the action This is the old bridge, if it helps
  14. well, I was flicking through some new pages of the Fender website and came across these, Squier JAGUARS http://www.fender.com/en-GB/products/search.php/?partno=0302000500 there is also a Mustang that Squier are making too. As the owner of a Fender Jaguar (MIM) I've been thinking, what lies for the future of Jaguars? there doesnt seem to be much difference between lower end ones and the Squiers, lets face it, all the key features that people buy Jags for are there, so is it only a matter of time until Japs and Mexi's are phased out altogether? I'm not sure I like the idea of jaguars and mustangs being made by Squier. I think they'll be more expensive than they're worth, but then again, I may want one because they were originally supposed to be 'student' models and its obvious theyre returning to that. Yet at the same time, I wouldnt because of the association with 'Squier' and 'P.O.S guitars' (except from maybe the jagmaster, which is built like a brick wall) Im thinking maybe a CAR one as a backup for my CAR Fender. May even pick up a mustang if it seems worth it. I'm split down the middle...whats your take?
