sex change operation!

Recommended Posts

I'm about to make an operation to the guitar I just bought

it will be kind of sex change operation

my wife, '63 jag, got stolen, and i can't afford a vintage or new...

it's a black fender baritone special, which I try to consider a storng Jag.

it's body just like Jag, so Im gonna drill some holes in the pick guard and rewire, to make my home made stero Jaguar system.

any ideas or thoughts?

what's the best way to make holes in the pick guard?

I need to get the plate+pick up selector+volume controls

can anybody sell or pin point to the right direction of where to get it?

i never bought on-line before. im in San Francisco this week and Dallas in March.

do you want to wire it just like an older jag?>

i would just get a different pickguard, and then the pieces and parts off of ebay, get a razor blade and a lil drill to do the work to that beast.

btw, how does that barritone special sound?

all the ones i have seen have the rythm section, yours does not however.

hi robert.I use my own wiring. it a system we develope to use the Jag neck pickup for bass lines and bridge pick up for guitar. best way to explain it is that i'm using a 'lead' circut as guitar and 'rhytme' as bass.

I'm not sure wether im gonna make it look just like Jag, probably gonna use my immagination and any suggestoin I get to innovate new switches location and appearence. 2 circuits. everything is an option right now.

I'm really surprised with this guitar.

all the japs jags i played had an flat uninteresting sound to my taste,

far out and away from the 63 Jag I had.

they looked the same-sound is way off to my opinion.

i think the pick ups on them are not good at all. they feel cheesy too.

this guitar has new pickups too but the hambackers kind of return some of that old sound i got used to. also it is big and robust and maintain the tune perfect, which ever tune I use, even better than that '63!

I haven't gigged with it yet, but i can tell it will be great for live/ i don't know if it has rich enough sound for our next album. after the hopefully succesful opertaion i'm going down to LA to record a little with it and hear it's worth for real.

don't have hi expectaion or anything, but i was anti-jap guy for all this years, now im living with one - and as the picture suggest, im quite happy with it...


Jag and drums!

You can make an invisible mod to do something similar:

Add a stereo jack to your guitar in place of the existing one, wire the rhythm circuit to one output, the lead circuit to the other. Use a stereo 1/4" lead down to a box at your feet. Have cool switching options in the box you can thwack with your foot. Add two outputs the the box, on for lead, one for rhythm, run them into different amps.

Hell, I might even do this with my next guitar.

you're on to me

i did it and it works great!

best thing about it: you're guitar stays the same

even though you put a stereo jack, MONO STILL WORKS THE SAME!

that exactly what i did with my Jag earlier this year.

The Jag and Jazz are perfect for for this setteing.

I'm sure some of the guys here will get a headache from messing up the Jags, but if you use it right, you get DOUBLE JAG!

you can hear how it works on our website, no bass - just neck pickup...
