I'd rather have someone buy that than have them ruin a perfectly decent, upstanding, normal jag with routes. I'd rather have them buy that than even putting in an SC sized bucker that I'd just have to solder out later if it was sold to me 8)

Besides, then they can quit complaining about not being able to figure out the jag trem.

I like the way the 1 ply guard looks though

Personally, I like them, and want to try one out sometime, but I'd rather just get a Cobain Jag with the rocker bridge still on it since I prefer and adore the Jag tremelo.

As for full size hums, I usually prefer one in the bridge position on a Jazzmaster with NO custom routing done, and the pickup mounted into a trimmed up pickup cover so it looks like it "belongs" there.

Those are the only pics I have of my HH. It plays like a dream and the pitch harmonics drip off like butter. It's the best player-guitar I've ever played. Beats some $3500 Gibsons I've played hands down. Of course, this is all subjective. I think my model is slightly different than the black/chrome HH because instead of chrome it's plated with some sort of other metal. Looks like it was oxidized perhaps.

If you look near the lower half of the bridge pickup in the closeup shot, you'll notice that it's a whiter polish. This is because I anchor my pinky finger onto it when I play and over the months I've had it the acid in my sweat has worn it away. A rather cool look. I honestly thought when I bought it though that all of the plates would be regular chrome. I like the oxy-chrome better.

Also, when taxes come in I'm gonna have pickguardian cut me a black abalone pickguard and I might put a DiMarzio Super II in the neck and put the stock neck PU in the body position. My reason being is because I've always wanted a Super II but I don't want to lose the sound of the dragster pickups - they're awesome. Very raunchy sometimes though.

who if any on here owns a jag hh? and how do the dragster pups sound?

I do, great guitars. I've had mine for a few years now, no probs with it. I ended up changing out the drag pickups. But I would say that they are pretty descent sounding, it's not that they're bad sounding it's really just what sound you're after that will decide if you like them or not.

hey man can u check and see if a regular jag pickguard will fit on a jaguar special besides pups ofcourse?

Umm if I had an extra hour and a half to de-string both guitars, take off both the pickguard, compare them, then re-string and re-tune and re-intonate them I would.

Why do you need to know?

nah just measure the holes for the bridge. cause if i get one i want to replace the pg.

Ok... but what about just ordering one from a tracing at pickguards.com?

yeah do they have those out now?

You trace your own and then send it in. I might do that pretty soon so there might be an HH tracing over there before you decide to buy yours.

Also,
