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.
Applying authentic looking headstock decals seems such a simple task, at first. But it's a lengthy process, and there are many potential pitfalls along the way...
It's going to be tough to exactly colour match the finish on my Fender body - but I should be able to get reasonably close...
It's quite usual for most of my project builds to evolve over time. However - I don't usually start the process of upgrading before a project's actually completed...
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
Things are beginning to grind with the third UK Covid lockdown. There's precious little to keep me occupied on my various projects. It's times like these when simply fitting some tuners is enough to entertain.
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.
It's not much of a job - but Covid lockdowns, Brexit and the Christmas holidays have all slowed things down recently. The arrival of a new neck for my Custom USA Jaguar is a welcome boost.
Since I'm decided on following the "62" vibe of my Olympic White Jaguar, to its' logical conclusion - and since I just happen to have a surplus Fender Mute assembly on my new, Vintage USA Jaguar body - there's really only one thing to do. But I'll have to learn how to install the thing by looking first, at how to remove it.
