Bless your heart...
Another nice one!
I,m really "digging" the tort pick guard! :)
i have a couple jaguars (modern player and a blacktop). i have been wondering about the HH but not the squire, rather the MIM classic player one. now i have the itch to head out to GC and look at what they might have hanging on the wall...
Well Sir, I can tell you this one was (and is ) WELL worth the "buy in" and through that vintage Polytone it is friggin AWESOME! haven't even tried anything else on the Poly----maybe I need to ......but DAMN these two sound SOOOOOOO good together.........
Aww Man Daves the king Of GOOCH when I Hear Gooch I think Dave!
Man he is crazy as I am he cracks me up on every vid! we can figure out what we hate about the new you tube burn some steaks! 'LIN SEED OIL ya Gotta Use the linseed oil on the neck board fills in the cracks and never dries linseed oil .
Well damn.................................its happened.
The Jaguar has gotten a name, a name befitting a down home gritty blues tone with searing highs when pushed.......her name,
That's a nice looking pair! Try the silicon spray maybe it can un gooch
they do look good together .
Will do frankd will report the results
AND the SAGA continues!!!!
Last night I go to play the NEW HH Jaguar--the "replacement" for the Original Jazzmaster that was returned for shoddy frets
NOW the HH Jaguar has a bad switch in bridge position ----SHITe!! I have MAYBE 3 hours in TOTAL on the guitar--AND I have only moved the switch 6-8 times TOPS. THIS is not acceptable.
So I call to see what my FRIENDS and MusicansFriend can do for me. O.K. they are low on inventory because of the Holiday and sales---and don't HAVE another HH Jaguar to send......understandable........so the young fella says, "do you like Surf Green?" I said---well who the "F" doesn't?????
So now this is winding its way to my home.......
Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar | Musician's Friend
I would like to point out MusiciansFriend has been very helpful and eager to resolve the issues when they arise. AND I have had ZERO issue with other items purchased from them this holiday season. Just incase anyone was wondering.
Perhaps FATE is trying to tell you to avoid these models and wait for the soon to arrive Epiphone '61 Special remake from WaveMixer?
YOu could be correct. if this one here doesn't pass muster I shall just stay firmly in the Epiphone camp :)
I've always had terrible luck with pickup selector switches. I have a squier bullet strat (was my very first electric guitar) and I had a similar issue with the selector switch, after a very short time it got to the point where you had to jiggle it to work. Wasn't a big deal, even now I don't do a lot of pickup switching mid song, but i did end up taking it apart and cleaning the hell out of it, and it worked just fine.
Either way that green one does look killer too
Yup, those switches do get stupid sometimes huh?
A few days ago the switch on my LP was cutting out and making me crazy.
Opened the small plate on the back and hit it with some CRC contact cleaner and then went up on top and put a drop of Eezox Lube on it and worked it back and forth a few times and presto! Switch back to normal. But hey, if that's all the challenges I have in life now then I'll take it!
And Adrian, when that '61 remake shows up you're gonna forget all about those Fender looking things anyway.
Unfortunately, my goth SG isn't going to be all that easy. Angel needs all her electronics changed out. Might as well go with 500K pots and switch out the selector switch too for good measure... :\
I dunno, maybe i'll try coil splitting the Iommi pup
Well well well.
If you end up liking yours half as much as i like mine, i think you'll be happy.
btw, mine is for the most part stock and it is my no.1
Oooohhh.....that IS a spanking pick guard! And a gorgeous guitar!
I guess these critters have a double wiring system? TONS of tone variations in the bone stock garb so why alter 'em? :)
O.K. well.......the Saga of the Jaguars continues........
Hey look MKR --TWINS
It is a FUNKY critter.......odd yet familiar weird yet friendly ..... its gonna be fun getting used to it.....with these weird "shielded"??? single coils --sorry first guitar I have ever owned with these extra metal bits surrounding the pup......but hey....its a WILD CRAZY RIDE BABY ---catch a wave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is a seriously cool guitar, bro !
If you don't like it I'll take it. LOL.
