New here... here's a family portrait.

Needs more cage-dancin' girls, IMO.

My baby Emg SA in the neck and Emg 81 in the bridge. Just had a new bone nut made/installed and a double fret dressing (they were that bad) and spacers under the string tree (to get rid of all th

NIce, i have been thinking about changing my white pearl to red pearl on my jagstang. I prefer white pickups with it. if i were you, maybe get rid of the black control knobs to chrome knobs? 

 

Good choice on pickups :) i chose the trembucker version, but tbh the only difference is that the poles line up on the TB whereas their slightly off with the HB

I read a lot about this question (trembucker X Humbucker) and to be honest, I understood that it really don't make much difference. The fact is that the pickups in this guitar, aren't alligned horizontally with the bridge....they make a diagonal angle.

So, its really impossible to line up any pickup with the strings....it will always have some difference of distance.

But thanks for the compliments!!!!

Here is my 1996 Jag-Stang. I purchased this brand new when I was in the 7th grade. Still rocking the hell out of it 18 years later!

I have personally done many mods/upgrades to this guitar

 

- Gotoh Locking Vinatge Tuners

- Warmoth Vintage Chrome Bridge

- Seymour Duncan SSL-1 (neck)

- Seymour Duncan TB-4 Trembucker (bridge)

- Custom Made Red Tortoise Pickguard from WD Music Products

- Re-painted the inside cavities with conductive paint

- Shielded the pickguard with copper tape

 

- Completely gutted the insides of the guitar out. Handwired it and used the following:

     - All wired with Vintage 50's Style Cloth Push Back 22awg wire..BECAUSE IT'S ALL ABOUT THE TONE!!!!!

     - Bourns top quality PDA241 Series 250K Vintage-STyle Potentiometers   (prefer these over CTS)

     - Switchcraft 1/4 inch mono output jack & Switchcraft slide switches w/ white tips                      

     - Vintage Paper-In-Oil .047uf/250v K42Y-2 Russian Vintage Capacitor  (TONE CITY!!)

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOY! I LOVE THIS BEAST!

Always loved my Jagstang and saw one on ebay that was crying out to be restored. It had been real beat up and had a terrible repaint job. I thought i would save it. Didn't want to just restore it back to what it was as I never really 'loved' the tone of the guitar. Compared to my Strat and Tele this guitar somehow never felt quite finished as a product. So whilst restoring I tried to think about what was missing and that I didn't like about it. The main thing was the colour and what i felt was a complete lack of tone from the stock pickups. So after getting back down to the bare wood and fixing it was time to change the colour. Volkswagon Orange :) Pickups i listened to several samples and although I liked the sound of the curtis novak offset and the seymour duncans i actually opted for two Iron Gear pickups. Hot Slag humbucker and Tesla Shark in the neck. This has really given me the best of both worlds as I play in a band that does rock and funk.... quick switch between pickups gives me exaclty what I want for both situations. Stayed with 500k pots with a .033uf capacitor, i also shieled the cavaties and also the scratch plate. Its rocking a 97 neck and the outcome is better than I imagined

Was digging around, found some OLD pictures of my Jag-Stang from the early 2000's around the time I got it......my Jag-Stang's Evolution

 

December 2000, had only had the guitar about 10 months at that point, just finished a setup and restring on my Grandpa's workbench.

Hello, new to this forum. Got my Jag-stang in 2001-ish (was a 1996 Sonic Blue, purchased off of eBay) This was the 2nd "dream guitar" that i saved up for and bought (the first being a cherry Gibson Firebird that i was never very happy with). Kept it original until 2012-ish when i switched the pick-ups to a Dimarzio Breed in the bridge pos and a GFS blade in the neck pos, and a mirror pickguard. Unfortunately my Apt was broken into in 2013 and this was one of 3 guitars stolen. Will hopefully get another one eventually. I always loved the feel and balance of this guitar!
