I have a modern 1965 Fender Mustang RI. It was missing the tremolo arm, so I ordered an official Fender replacement part.

The new arm does *not* have any threads, and the rocker it fits into is not ...

Well, someone on HC said the necks can be swapped around so I'm gonna give it a shot next time I change strings. Nuttin' to lose, I figure.

I love my Classic Player Jaguar Special HH. Now I'm wishing I had $2.8K for the Johnny Marr signature Jaguar. I just bought a 65RI Mustang and I really like it, but the Jaguar just seems to fit better ...

I've got a 65RI Mustang with a 7.25" radius neck and a Classic Player Jag Special HH with a 9.5" radius.

Just curious whether these two necks are interchangeable. The next time I swap str ...

Jaguar? Mustang? Something else? Color scheme? We need details. Otherwise, it's as if you said: "Hey guys! I just bought a gas guzzling muscle car!"

Why would you use a heavy bottom set if your aim for easy bends is something where you only bend the 3 bottom (aka heavy) strings, and a ...

It's official. I HATE 10-52's on my new Mustang and on my CP Jaguar HH, too. Can't wait to cut off the D'addario 10-52's and replace them with normal strings.

I've got some 9's and 10's on the way ...
