I've already done a dry-run assembly. So - now that the body has been finished and polished, piecing my JagStang build together again should be an absolute breeze...
Having obtained all of the body-mounted hardware I'll need for the JagStang build - it's the ideal opportunity to check the accuracy, and to position everything properly with a "dry-run" assembly.
Fitting a neck pickup, custom-cut all-red scratchplate, and chrome control plate to my Wilko Johnson Fender Telecaster
It might seem like overkill to some - but I want to properly shield my USA Custom Jaguar body with some copper foil. While I'm at it - I can sort out a few grounding issues
Covid Lockdowns seem to be the perfect time to obsess with small details. I've been putting this off for a while now - but I'm finally going to fix some hardware to my Custom Fender USA Jaguar
With repairs and restoration on the neck and body complete - it's time to begin the re-build. Most of the original components will be replaced, but some will be swapped out as upgrades, or as new replacements for worn parts.
When it comes to scratchplates - the fit is all important. In fact, scratchplates can often be a cause of huge frustration when piecing together a build. Especially - it seems - on a Jaguar.
