  • GASing for a Jaguar (photoshoppers show me my dream guitar!)

    I don't know what has come over me lately...I cannot stop thinking about a Jaguar. I even had dreams about one.

    I'm gonna get my local guitar store to build me a parts Jaguar though instead of getting a Fender....they are top notch quality guys who all build there own lines from the ground up & I've seen lots of partscasters they have made.

    I want a very vintage Jaguar with a few mods...like instead of the rhythm switch on the top I wanna make it a phase switch for one of the Pups so I can get in or out of phase sounds when both pickups are being used...and then just bypass those roller knobs. Who uses those anyway??

    I think I want a reverse headstock though....and in Daphne Blue!!!

    Any of your Photoshop guys wanna show me what that would look like???

    oh and yeah show off your Jaguars please.

              Can anyone else think of any other cool mods to do while keeping it vintage looking and feeling?? I don't want any active controls.

              I like the on/off switches & the treble choke....I know I'd never use the top switches for the rhythm circuit so I figured use that switch as a phase switch & just bypass the rollers....but is there something else I could use them for? I can't really think of anything.

                Individual tone controls?

                  yeah that's a cool idea....do double volume controls on the bottom for each pickup and double tone controls on the rollers...hmmm...

                          ... seems kind of silly. The wiring mod can be done to any off the shelf guitar and necks are interchangeable. I would just buy a Fender Jaguar (either MIA or other) and get a lefty neck. Then you could switch out the necks and put it back to stock when you want to sell it. Seems like a more cost-effective way of doing things...
