Little vid for anyone who wants to check out the TM JM's sound, or remembers me and would like to hear some offbeat original jams. ha
Rough draft as it stands, complete with mistakes, interlude has yet to be added, and adlibbed solo section. (Sue me) ;-P

Junky (and nearly blown out) crate amp, Boss MD-2 and DD-7, in case anyone is curious.

i was glad to see that you can actually play a lil bit, i was worried that you were going to have a really nice guitar and try playing mary had a little lamb and screw it up.

  i only got 1:13 into the vid. you got a good sound comming out. is the crate your only amp? and what all pedals do you have? seems a shame to have a nice guitar running into something that will destroy all the personality of the notes.

  i dig it.

Yeah, most of my stuff was stolen quite a few years back. Bass, 3 guitars, half-stack, practice amp, and 2 pedals.

All I have, and used, was in that description in the op.

Boss DD-7 @ Lvl: 1o'clock, F.Back: 3o'clock, D.Time: 1o'clock, analog mode
Boss MD-2 @ Lvl: 4o'clock, Tone: Maxed(bottom 1o'clock), Distortion: 1o'clock, Gain Boost: 2o'clock
 

And yes, That little crate amp is the only functional one I have, atm. It's not that it's bad, it's just not very big, so it gets pushed futher than it should, probably. It also has a really loud hum when idle, as you can hear before I start playing in the video. I usually have the the bass cranked to nearly max, the mids scooped out at about 3-4, high mids closer to 4-5, and the treble at 7ish. The fact that the audio and video is recorded on a phone probably isn't doing anyone any favors either hahaha.

I do have an oolllddd fender sidekick amp, but it wasn't taken care of very well before I got it and it only took me a month or so to completely blow the speaker out, so eventually, I'm going to replace the speaker and start using that again. It has a good amount of power and volume, but its just a disgusting drone in it's current condition.

Any speaker recommendations based on someone using a lot of delay, echo, and high gain distortion, without blowing the speaker or mudding up the sound?

I play anything from metal, to sludgy grungey punkish stuff, to weird atmostpheric stuff like the video above, which has been the direction I'm heading in more and more when I'm writing seriously.  I usually keep things fairly simple as far as playing goes though, because I like to use effects and I want it all to articulate, without getting bogged down. Plus, I try not to write anything I can't play and sing at the same time, because more and more I'm finding it harder to find people worth playing with on an artistic level, and being able to stand people on a personal level haha. It's not that i'm THAT snobby, I've just found that heavy drug users aren't the most reliable or trustworthy bandmates, and that population seems to have taken over my immediate area. I've resigned myself to having to do my own bass, guitar and vocals until I get back to the west coast.

      Hi. I am planning on modding my Surf Green Squire vintage modified jaguar to have 2 4 wire humbuckers, a three way toggle switch, and a coil tap on the neck pickup, however I want to keep the rhythm circuit and low cut switch. (basically similar to a Kurt Cobain jag except only master volume and master tone, neck coil tap, and keeping the low cut switch) I'm 17 and I'm not very good with wiring, also jag wiring is especially confusing. Would anyone be able to help me figure out a wiring diagram for this, or at least help explain it to me? Are there any other mods I should try for this guitar?

      As my Squire VM Jaguar got stolen, I'm considering MIJ Traditional 60s or MIM Classic Player for upgrade, but I can't test a Japanese model.
      According to Japanese Fender website, MIJ stock model are having an ''U Shape'' neck, when most of the other Jaguar stock models like MIM Classic Player or American series are made with ''C Shape'' necks.

      So does it mean MIJ Jag are having a thicker or bigger neck?
      As a player with small hands, it's considerable to have thinner necks because they are more comfortable to play with. Thanks a lot

      Hey brothers and sisters, 
      I have a new KC jaguar. I managed to change the humbuckers height (both) by accident when removing my scratchguard cover. Has anyone heard of the standard Fender settings for these? For example how much should I be able to measure (in MM if possible, sorry USA!) FROM the bottom of my strings to the pickups.
       
      Thanks so much!

      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!
