I've finally got some time to get round to fixing up my Jag. 

I got it as a gift for my 18th birthday, (im 30 now so its been kicking about in this state for awhile) the dings were there when i got it. I didn't care as its all my folks could afford at the time and i was still over the moon with it.

I'm looking for a few pointers for restoring the finish initially. As you can see its had a fair old whack to the back of the body, going right into the wood. I'd like to keep it sunburst if possible, but if that proves too difficult then a single colour would be fine.

Also, I'm thinking of overhauling the electrics completely. Id like to put in a seymore duncan jb/59 combo for the pickups, and simplify the switches and volume/tone knobs.

I'll never sell it so I'm not bothered about it losing value, id just like to have it set up the way i want it and to have it looking presentable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Im sure this has been done many times before so if theres any threads, posts, articles etc, that you could point me in the direction of, i think that would be a good start. Pics to follow...

      I am routing it to fit Humbuckers,  (SH-4 JB Bridge Humbucker & SH-2 Jazz Model Neck Humbucker)
               changing the bridge to a Mustang one, or something better ( happy to hear any recommendations ) 
                I’ll be using CTS 1 MEG pots for volume and tone, as well as the Orange Drop Capacitor .047uf        ( hopefully this will give it a nice bright tone ? )
            will try and make the top switch a Parallel & Series switch, as well as having the coil splits on the bottom switches.. 
            
               I’d love to hear your opinions on the materials/parts i’m planing on using, and if you have any other suggestions please let me know!

      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.

      Hello, managed to get my mitts on a staytrem bridge.  Question, is there suppose to be a generous amount of wiggle room when I drop it in the posts?  Is that what they mean by a rocker?  Thanks in advanced.  Jeff

      I made a thing, not sure what to call it
      I stuck Lendy Fralin jazzmaster pickups and a vintage DeArmond pickup taken from a Airline bobcat.
      Switch is wired like a LP and I left the rhythm circuit in tact.
      I have a black pickguard and knobs on the way along with a few tweaks and a proper set up I'll be completely in love
