Hey guys! Obligatory new to the forum post, here. I just picked up my 2002 Fiesta Red Jag-Stang on Friday of last week, and I'm head over heels in love with this instrument. However, I seem to be having some tone issues. For reference, I am running my Jag-Stang through a beat up Marshall DFX 100, a You Dirty Rat pedal, Nu Tube Screamer, and a Rusty Fuzz pedal. The JS has a Texas Special and an SH-4 JB in it, so my tone should be perfect, but everything sounds too bassy and muddy. Distortion doesn't really offer the crunch that I really want through this guitar like it does with my Fender Duo Sonic. I've tried messing with the EQ on my amp and lowering/raising the pickup heights. I'm kinda running out of any ideas, and any help would be appreciated!
Ive decided that i want to drop my guitar down a bit. Its a strat copy ive moded and at the moment it has 10s on it but i want to put a set of strings on it that will work well with drop d and drop c but i dont know what to use also if my guitar will need any major ajustments. Thanks josh
I changed the strings on my Mustang for the first time last night and it was an ordeal. This is my first Mustang. I'm used to stringing guitars with no tremolo and strings that go straight through. Also the tuners were a bit different - you stick the end through the middle of the peg, not through. Does anyone have any tips? Particularly around: bending the string around the tremolo system so the end goes in the socket all the way getting the string to wrap around the peg and not slip when you're winding how much you should cut off the string (I found my system of using the peg + 2 more pegs wasn't quite enough)
