Also... Sneak peak at the Junior in black, I think this is gonna be okay after all... Much more handsome than cherry... Dat ass...
That looks Killer!
That's going to be so cool.
Yeah the staytrem arm is a huge improvement, a bigger upgrade than the bridge I think, I have it or mastery on all my vibrato equipped guitars
The bridge is great, tried Jag a Mustang versions and neither was any good... I found out yesterday that I should've bought the fixed version of the Staytrem, bit annoyed as I didn't realise it was an option!! I have to make sure mine is tilted back otherwise the intonation is out... The vibrato is really good, easy install too as I thought I'd have to get a tech to do it... Bonus!
nah doesn't work. looks great tho.
All guitars should be either black or white or combinations thereof.
Hey hey! Good stuff.
Aw yeah! Love it, good recovery from a shit situation. How will it look around the front, black pickguard?
The fixed version is the same bit with a skinny rubber bushing. Email him and he’ll send you one for the price of postage 👍🏻
Mine has a rubber bushing but it still moves, is that right?
Edit: No worries, just checked the website and I think I'll keep it the way it is... He won't send the nylon sleeves out as a retrofit anyway!! He seems a bit of a grumpy git!
I've got the original '59 tort pickguard so that'll be going straight back on... Here's a before shot...
He is a hugely grumpy git! I’ll order an extra one next time I do an order, I get a few a year from him
Juniors are the absolute best for raw simplicity I love my SG jnr
Been waiting all week for that looper to turn up. Checked my email, no receipt. Checked my paypal, no order. Guess I must have fat fingered the final button push. Annoying. It's not the week before payday and i' don't feel as flush as I did last weekend.
Fuck it. In for a penny.
But doesn't it mean you can't use the vibrato if its fixed? I thought it needed to be able to rock otherwise you go out of tune really quickly... And thanks!!
Nah, it’s a bit of a myth, the mastery doesn’t rock either but seems to be the go-to bridge for pro offset playing musicians
I imagine it does expose flaws elsewhere quicker though like sticky nut or tuners in need of a service
I have a problem with black fender offsets I think
I fail to see the problem
Yup, they all look fine to me!
Is that a Starcaster on the right?
Well if you can get me a couple that would be great, no harm in giving it a go... It wasn't something that occurred to me as it's my first Jag and I'm not at all familiar with tremolos (apart from the one on my Strat), I've been a hardtail guy for most of my days...
Those three look great, I've always been curious about Starcasters...
Yeah I love the starcaster but I swapped out the fugly neck straight away (got enough on ebay to fund a warmoth) it’s getting a modded trem at the mo but it’s a bitch to setup...
Old holes will be filled and I’ll be drilling a new hole for volume and moving the output jack to the bottom volume as I don’t like jacks on the side of bodies as I play sitting down a lot
Only hesitation is this is a fender, I probably shouldn’t be chopping it up so I might just clean it up and sell as a body then find a Squier to chop up
Warmoth make 'Mooncaster' bodies now, go for you life!
