I am routing it to fit Humbuckers, (SH-4 JB Bridge Humbucker & SH-2 Jazz Model Neck Humbucker)
changing the bridge to a Mustang one, or something better ( happy to hear any recommendations )
I’ll be using CTS 1 MEG pots for volume and tone, as well as the Orange Drop Capacitor .047uf ( hopefully this will give it a nice bright tone ? )
will try and make the top switch a Parallel & Series switch, as well as having the coil splits on the bottom switches..
I’d love to hear your opinions on the materials/parts i’m planing on using, and if you have any other suggestions please let me know!
Was hoping to get some insight as to what this black platform thing is under the saddle here. It looks like it goes all the way across the bridge and is slightly bigger than the bridge itself. I've only ever been exposed to the two pin style that mounts directly into the body, so I'm not sure if this is a mod or not.
Has anyone seen this before? Is it a factory rarity or something?
Guitar: Fender Jaguar, made in japan c.1993-1995ish.
Hello everyone thanks for reading. I recently came across a Mustang that is supposedly a 1982, but it's very difficult to find info on these years. Can anyone tell me some tell-tale signs? I have a few pics of it that I will attach.
Serial: R018034 . Theres conflicting info on this. According to a mustang history page, that means it's 1982, but according to a decoder, it's a 2004 reissue?
I can't figure out how to upload pics through here? So here's a link to the imgur gallery
If anyone can help, that'd be awesome and I'd really appreciate it.
I've got a Fender mustang competition from 1972.?
When I bought the guitar there was no tremolo arm.
I bought a new one online, which fits on a '65, but it doesn't fit.... (https://www.thomann.de/nl/fender_mustang_tremarm.htm)
I measured the parts: the tremolo arm is close to Ø5mm (around Ø4,95mm), the bridge hole is around Ø4,7mm.
Is the hole size correct, or should it be Ø5mm? Or do I need a thinner arm?
Hope someone can help me.
