New Project. Custom built Fender Jaguar USA

I regularly modify previous builds in order to learn more about how they work, and to try and improve on my original results. I'm always in search of the best quality instrument I can put together. Unfortunately, the situation with my eyesight is making some of the processes more difficult. Maybe it's time to leave some of it to the experts, for a change.

Shimming the Jaguar neck pocket.

It seems the Staytrem bridge must be taller than the stock design Jaguar bridge. Either that, or the neck heel is too deep. The action on the Jaguar is well above what you'd call normal - even with the bridge screwed all the way down to the deck. Fortunately - there's a cure.
