Lefty build. Oil finished

Some more pics of my freshly modded Mustang with modern TOM bridge, locked tremolo, lowered switches, fully shielded, 500k pots and Duncan JB humbucker   .    

Sorry to double post but I have a little update. I am starting to realize that fender short scales are an addiction....   I was loving messing around with the squier mustang I posted and had an itch

Ya know, Fender japan really make good mustangs! Better than their jaguars and jazzmasters* (*Their worst offset IMO). The Mustangs they produce are so close to the originals, except for a few minor issues that don't effect sound. Then their Jaguars, they sound and look close to originals too. Then the jazzmaster, the worst of them all...even the pickguard is shaped totally different. And then pickups...they look like p90's inside without the 90! LOL.

But, the last two have the potential IMO to be just as good as their US counterpart with some minor electronic and also if you like aesthetic modifications.

If I lived in Japan and had access to so much variety I would say "screw you U.S Fenders!"

can anyone notice the difference in color tones? the red pcikgaurd is 90's sonic blue, the other doesnt have as much green in it, that guitar also has a warmoth compound raduis neck with jumbo frets. hate to say it but it plays better than the stock one with the humbucker.

moar pics D: so sexy!!!

Here is my new project. Not done. Where are people getting those pro pick guards with the humbucker hole? I am thinking possibly a black pickguard and white switches and pickups.

Try pickguardian.com for pickguards, custom made for a perfect fit. I've never used them personally, but I wouldn't hesitate to.

Looks like they can do it. Emailed them. I will post back what I hear. Really appreciate the advice!

Update: Tony emailed back. (He is fast!) Sounds like it might be doable. He thinks it would be about $40 for a Black/White/Black and $50 if I want to go with the stock white pearl with the humbucker route. Sounds great to me. I am just confirming he can do the route for me with a tracing of my stock pickguard.

Any opinions on what to get? I am leaning towards a black one because stock is... well stock. I have seen them with a tort pickguard. Seems a little weird on red. Any ideas?
