Combining the classic lines of a Fender Vintage re-issue Jaguar, with Creamery "Alt-88" pickups, and "Johnny Marr" style, 4-way switching
Having changed the neck on my Candy Apple Red Jaguar - I now need to dial in the neck action, and check all of the previous setup perameters
"You put the hardware on - you take it off... On... off... on... off..." ...reverting to my original plan
...just call me "Four-Jags!"...
Setting up and personalising the action on my customised "Original '60's" Fender Jaguar
A properly cut bone nut is one of the keys to great tone - but cutting one properly can be a challenge. Even with the right tools and a refined approach - it can take a while. But it's well worth the effort.
I can finally see well enough to drop some Creamery "Alt 88"Jaguar pickups into my Custom spec Fender "US Original '60's" Jaguar. I'm wiring them up with a "Johnny Marr" schematic, and I'm especially looking forward to testing out the additional "neck and bridge in series" combination.
I've got a couple of small jobs scheduled this week. First off - I want to replace the Fender Mute on my CAR Original '60's Jaguar...
Fitting my customised Musikraft Jaguar neck onto my Candy Apple Red "Original '60's" Jaguar body. Featuring some new Gotoh SD-510 tuners, and a StewMac neck shim.
Finishing the painted headstock on my Musikraft custom Jaguar neck. A few gremlins in the detail - but maybe I just have to live with some of my practical limitations, and focus on the overall effect.
