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

Kinda' sorta, it looks kind of like Sherwood mixed with Ocean Turquoise in person. It has a neat change of color in the light. I just put a vid of this one on youtube.

Lace own Lace sensor pickups, Fender just paid them a ton of cash to stick their name on and use them.

Mustang pickups are nothing like lace sensors, they are just sort of standard single coils with plain covers, lace sensors are noiseless and have their own tone, they don't sound like anything else really.

here she is now with TOM bridge and JB Jr

How do you find it now, big improvement?

Yes Fran, better.

First with the TOM bridge, i like the string spacing which is closer but the saddle radius doesn't match the neck radius. A bit improvement on sustain and offered a crisper tone.

I shimmed the neck to increase the angle in relation to the bridge height. By doing this, I can attack the strings better 'cause it's slightly away from the body.

Now with the JB Jr. I like it better although it's darker than the stock pickup. It gave me more tonal option. Used alone, it got more power and is midrangey sounding. Combined with the neck pickup, i got the "twang" back.

All these mods i just learned here in these forums. You guys are the best!
