    Jazzmaster is a Squier Vintage Modified, refinished in nitro Ocean Blue metallic, GFS Jazzmaster Pickups, took out the rhythm circuit, mustang bridge, blacked out the guard/knobs/covers/toggle switch. Heres an iPhone clip of my amp.

    Mustang is a Squier Bullet, added a GFS bridge, blue Mustang pickguard from Amazon, black pickup covers, 1 gold foil pickup in the neck straight to the volume pot and output jack. Heres a clip into a digital blackface fender amp.

        I like the look of the stripped-down Jazzmaster a lot - nice job Travis!

        I can see the argument for pulling the rhythm circuit in a JM or Jag... they are pretty bassy and not a lot of people use them. As far as the Mustang, I don't use the bridge pickup by itself a lot, and I do like the sound of the neck position, but I like the neck + bridge combinations too much (both in and out of phase) to be willing to give up the switches on my Duo Sonic or Mustang.

        But if that's what you prefer, a Musicmaster's just (another) pickguard swap away...

          The Mustang gave me a bit of GAS actually. That's a really sharp color on that guitar. Back in the late 60's a fella I played with for a bit had a Duo-Sonic that I kept calling a Mustang...Irritated the dickens out of him. I was playing bass for him at the time and had a Musicmaster for my 6 string. I wish I still had it and the Silvertone Bass.

            Yeah I'm not a big rhythm circuit guy. The Bullet Mustang only comes with a 3 way toggle, if it had come with a classic Mustang switching system I probably would've kept it in, set both pickups to always on and then use the switch to toggle series/parallel.

              Those GFS Gold Foil pickup sounded nice.
              You did a great job on the mod

              How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲

                  Hey Travis, I just stopped by for a second.
                  ...like, for the first time in about 2 years.

                  Your results look really nice and I love the sound of the second clip... it has that edge.
                  I can definitely see the benefits of the first guitar as well... so nice for clean passages.

                  When did you pick up the rattle can? Looks pretty good.
                  I half-expected to see an old Teisco silver-topped pickup shoehorned in there somewhere.
