Hi guys I have been in this community for a little while now, I've read all of the setup post's but I've still got unbelievably high action on my Jagstang, which if i try to lower start to get buzz and notes fretting out. I've had my JagStang since October last year and haven't got it they way I want. I've took it to a repair shop, but they didn't fix anything, just took my money. I had to go back 3 times because of problems the last being because the guy forgot to put a screw in the pickguard, so overall a terrible experience. Completely unprofessional. I've done adjustments myself, followed setup guides, replace the nut that the guy over filed. I'm at the end of my ropes with this guitar, because I love everything about it, but can't play without wanting to make it better :(

I'm sorry if I come across as a whiny bitch, I know this is the best community for offset guitars on the internet, so if you guys can't help me I'm fu**ed.

 

Thanks, XaG

Hey Brotha, I've had a similar issue with my jag, I put on a Warmoth Mustang sadle and then increased my string gauge to 11-52 (which was the real issue solver). I'm sorry about your crappy experience in the shop, I highly suggest looking up a local luthier (not a store) and getting a pro setup on there. The guitar sounds 100% better with one. it'll cost like $80-120 but seriously world of difference. 

My use case: Frequent Gigging, Weekly rehearsals, heavy use

      For those who want a custom build. For those who can't find a Jagstang. Why customize an original? Build one. If you lack luthier skills, I can help you.

      Hello everyone thanks for reading. I recently came across a Mustang that is supposedly a 1982, but it's very difficult to find info on these years. Can anyone tell me some tell-tale signs? I have a few pics of it that I will attach. 
      Serial: R018034 . Theres conflicting info on this. According to a mustang history page, that means it's 1982, but according to a decoder, it's a 2004 reissue?
      I can't figure out how to upload pics through here? So here's a link to the imgur gallery

      If anyone can help, that'd be awesome and I'd really appreciate it.

      Does anyone know the original part number for the original hard case that came with a Jagstang in 95? I bought one from Guitar Center that is Fender model 540006004000000 and it says it fits a Mustang/jagstang/cyclone. It is too short and does not have the place for putting accessories in.
