Silver Sparkle Jagmaster FINISHED

Recommended Posts

With the help of a forum buddy, I scored this off of guitar center cheap. I am pretty impressed. It has some dents and dings, but is in pretty great shape. I love the glitter finish. I am thinking some metal humbuckers might be next to go in.

Can we fix it? Yes. Yes we can. by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr

Went to work taking the pickguard off and removing the electronics. I also took the neck off to clean since the body will need a little routing for the WRHB to fit.

I picked up a new neck from another Jagmaster. It had a Jazzmaster decal that had been applied. I figure I could put a custom decal on. If I want it to go back to stock, I can put the first neck back on.

Needed to add some clear coat before I get to adding a decal.

This is the decal I want to use. It is from a series called Evangelion. Thought it would be fun.

Custom pickguard is on its way tomorrow. I got the email from Tony at Pickguardian today.

Tomorrow I am going to print out my decal to apply on the headstock. Should be really cool! I am excited to see how that turns out. Pics will surely follow.

Pickguard came! Worked great. I had to do some minor routing to allow the larger WRHB's to fit.

I wetsanded the headstock. I didn't polish it because the stock neck is satin.

Sounds GREAT. Action is low and no fret buzz. I am very happy with how it turned out.
