      Tele player here. I am looking to give offsets another try but I'm a little scared. I once owned a cheap fender blacktop jaguar and it was an awful guitar. Although it was cheap, the major issue with it was that the neck pocket was completely flat and it would not intonate properly(past the twelve fret it was way sharp and the action was way too high). No amount of playing with the truss rod, bridge, or saddles could fix this, even when it was taken to a professional. Since then, I have decided to never buy a bolt on guitar with a raised bridge. Still, they look so cool and I can't help but want one. I also think they have the best sounding trems.
       
      Question:
      Are there any offset guitars that fender currently sells that come with a properly angled neck pocket? I noticed they fixed the saddles on a lot of these guitars in recent years and I am wondering if they have fixed the neck pocket angle on any of them as well. I know you can shim the neck, but I don't' want to stick a piece of plastic or wood in the neck pocket of my guitar, I want one with the neck pocket cut properly or I don't want one at all.

      Hi all
       
      I’d  like to upgrade my Squier Mustang VM to the Fender Dynamic Vibrato unit, but can’t find any at a reasonable price online in the UK. Everything is imports with steep delivery costs, or vintage expensive ones that I’m not particularly interested in.
       
      Anyone know of where to buy one, or an alternative brand as good as the original Fender?
       
      cheers

      Hey All,
      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.
