Hi,

I thought I would be very clever by fitting a set of Fender '62 AVRI pickups in my 50th Anniversary Jaguar. Problem is when both pickups are active they're out of phase and don't hum cancel either.

I've head I can wire the hot side to ground and black wire to the switching section. Suppose that works, I would still be left with hum. Anybody know if the '62 pickups are RW/RP or not?

TBH I'm already disappointed to how they sound as is aside from the hum & phasing. The Special Design Hot Pickup which comes as stock on the 50th anniversary sound better than the '62 which are dry & colorless.

Disappointed with what I thought would be an upgrade actually turns out to be a massive downgrade.

      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.

      I have a beautiful CIJ jag with Duncan Hot Jag pickups. Unlike a lot of people, I love the rhythm circuit, with its girth, warmth, and output. I do wish I could get slightly more high end from it though, without sacrificing its other qualities; almost like if the tone knob went another 25% higher. Which mod do y’all recommend to achieve that? Thanks!
