Olympic White “62” Jaguar. Installing a Fender Mute

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.

The perfect Jaguar setup? Part two. Let’s face it. It’s the bridge – isn’t it?

One of the "received truths" about the Jaguar - seems to be that the original bridge design is at fault for just about everything - (although there are a whole series of common mods which address some sonic characteristics as well). With the bridge however - many of the "fixes" appear to cause problems, or unwanted knock-on effects, themselves. ...what does that mean for the setup itself? Is there a way to achieve a perfect balance between archtop form, and solid-body function?

The perfect Jaguar setup? Part one. Appreciating the design, and architecture.

Comparing the various Jaguar bridge options got me thinking. I just couldn't work out what that Fender Tune-o-matic bridge was trying to achieve. Since I plan to have a few offsets to set up over the next few months, I need to work out how to solve some of the technical differences which make Stratocasters and Jaguars so, apparently, different. I began to realise, I'd have to look at things in a different way...
