Fender Jag-Stang meets Bareknuckle Pickups?


Recommended Posts

Just picked up a 96' Sonic Blue Fender Jag-Stang and I naturally want to upgrade the stock pups as I do with all my guitars. I am a bit perplexed however as I favor p90's the majority of the time. My Jazzmaster has Duncan Antiquity II's that are perfect for it, my Jaguar has Bareknuckle Stockholm's that are dark and perfect for it, My Fender Super-Sonic has a Duncan Phatcat in the neck and a Bareknuckle Supermassive HSP (humbucker sized p90) and it is magical. I like Duncan and see that most people do the Duncan JB upgrade, but I am torn as I have a bit more love for the Bareknuckle pups and the Supermassive is perfect for a great noisy yet clear "Alternative vibe". I see much talk about F-spaced pickups and I am not sure I know what that even mean. Does anyone know if these guys would fit and or does anyone have any experience with Jag-Stangs and P90's? I have looked and looked everywhere and have not found anyone that has put P90's in a Jag-Stang. Duncan's to Bareknuckle and in between, any recommendations on some amazing pickup upgrades that might fit my needs? And lastly, does anyone know where I can get a replacement Tremolo bar, (yes, unlike most, I actually use mine).

Thank you in advance!

      Hello, I have a telecaster (Phil pro) neck and a mustang floating bridge, pickups, etc. I want to make a DIY good looking jag-stang but I don't know where can I get blueprints with scale. Help to figure out!

      Hey guys!
       
      Obligatory new to the forum post, here.  I just picked up my 2002 Fiesta Red Jag-Stang on Friday of last week, and I'm head over heels in love with this instrument.  However, I seem to be having some tone issues.  For reference, I am running my Jag-Stang through a beat up Marshall DFX 100, a You Dirty Rat pedal, Nu Tube Screamer, and a Rusty Fuzz pedal.  The JS has a Texas Special and an SH-4 JB in it, so my tone should be perfect, but everything sounds too bassy and muddy.  Distortion doesn't really offer the crunch that I really want through this guitar like it does with my Fender Duo Sonic.  I've tried messing with the EQ on my amp and lowering/raising the pickup heights.  I'm kinda running out of any ideas, and any help would be appreciated!

      Hey ya'll, new member here but I'm in a bind. I'm looking for the screws to a jag-stang that my buddy has in his possession. It's got some work that's gotta go into it, but most importantly is I'm missing the screws for adjusting the bridge height for the action. The pic shows the ones I'm missing.
      Any of ya'll know where I might be able to find the screws? If not, what are my options for this?
       
      Thanks for any help!

      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.
