doing some work on my Jaguar
I've had this fender jaguar for some time now. It was my first "real" guitar. I'd really like to make some changes to it. I still use it quite often especially when playing blues, it's a great slide guitar. there's just a few things i've been toying with. First off it needs to have the stock bridge replaced with a mustang style bridge. The other necessary replacement is the neck pickup, which has horrible microphonic feedback. The neck pickup is great, it's an SD mini JB pickup. It was a real pain to get the wiring right due to the jags unique wiring setup. I'd like to get one of SDs single coil replacements, i wouldn't mind getting a dimarzio either. I'd be cool with getting an other mini humbucker if i could make sure the wiring was done by someone else, i really don't want to go thru that again myself! I was also possibly thinking of getting a warmoth neck to replace the jag neck. I can't decide on maple or ebony fretboard, i think they'd both look real nice on the guitar (it's 3 tone sunburst) I was mainly thinking about getting the new neck so i could put some better tuners on it (an other necessary mod.) as far as neck wood i'd want to go with a high quality maple.
thanks for the help,
