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!
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 own a Japanese Fender Jaguar which I asked Fender to date for me. They told me it's a 1997 model, but they also said it’s quite unique as the serial number doesn't fall neatly into their set of categories and that I should get it valued.
The serial number is “Crafted in Japan V036072”
It’s V +6 digits which makes it 1996-97, but it says ‘Crafted in Japan’ which they only began on models A+6 digits from ’97 onwards.
Would be interesting to know if this unconventional serial number increases the value of the guitar, and what that value would be? Any help would be appreciated!
