So I've had a jagstang for about a year now, and I remember when I got it, I pledged to replace the pickups. I was considering ordering a SS configuration pickguard from pickguardian.com, but first wanted to check to see if I had to route the body, or if it would drop in just like putting a single coil in a HSS strat's bridge. Does anyone have experience with this?

I have never attempted this, but I can post this picture for you so you or someone else can try to judge.

This is what your stock Jag-Stang looks like under the pickguard.

Sorry if you already knew this and it was of no help.

It does appear to me that it SHOULD fit, but again no guarantees.

Also, I don't know what kind of budget you are working worth, but by putting in two single coils, you are essentially making the Jag-Stang identical to a Mustang. Not sure, but it may interest you to just pick up a used reissue Mustang and throw two Lollars in that. Strat style pickups will DEFINITELY fit into a Mustang...

and then I would upgrade the pickups in the Jag-Stang as well. Lace Red Dually in your Jag-Stang would work well paired with a Lace Blue in the neck for awesome tonal variations in the Jag-Stang. Then I would wire it so the switch above the bridge pickup is a humbucker splitter (i.e. with the switch in the middle you are using the full output of the humbucker, and with the switch either left or right you are using the humbucker split, and only using one coil.) Then I would make the switch above the neck pickup a pickup selector. That would make your Jag-Stang switchable from HS to SS in a very technical way. Just saying, I wouldn't dismiss it right away, because a split humbucker can get some seriously convincing single-coil spank if it is a good quality humbucker and wired properly.

      Hi, so I’m a wiring noob and needing some help with the wiring I have in mind. I’m upgrading both pups in my JS. In the bridge I’m putting in a Seymour Duncan P-Rails, and in the neck a Lace Chrome Dome (or DiMarzio Area 67). (Two slide switches and Tone and Vol.)
      What I want to be able to do if possible is wire the neck switch to toggle between the neck/neck+bridge(parallel)/bridge. The bridge switch I want to wire to split the p-rails, rail/humbucker(series)/p-90.
      So, what I need is a diagram if possible and some advice about the switches. I assume i’ll need two 3-way on/on/on slide switches?
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Hi! I'm new to Jaguar, and I need some help.
      I've found Fender Jaguar special USA replacement pickups set for sale on a Polish site simmilar to craiglist.
      I'm not sure about authenticity of this pickups, and the fact that it's rather cheap makes me suspicious.
      Can anyone help me judge it's credibility just by the way it looks?
       
       

       

       
      Thank's a lot in advance!

      I want my SSS Strat to sound more like a jaguar as I'm lefty and can't afford a Kurt Cobain Jaguar. Any advices?

      Hey guys, new here. Just wondering, I'm getting a Squier Vintage Modified Mustang at the end of the month. I'm also gonna get a Fuzz Face. I'm gonna put a TOM bridge in as well, and sand the gloss off the neck. But, should i also get a Seymour Duncan JB? Would it work with the Fuzz Face? I'm going for psychedelic stuff, like Hendrix who used single coils obviously, but I feel the single coil AND the short scale length will result in a honky tone. Thoughts?
