What neck does he want on it? Doesn't a Super Sonic already have a Fender neck?

The neck on a Super-Sonic sits just a little differently than your average Fender neck. It's a little shallower. Plus ...

On the humbuckers I just took out of the Jagmaster white was the one that went to the switch.

You've got a 50/50 chance.
at worst you'll end up redoing a few solder points.

I just spray painted the outer edge of my truck rims green so that I'll get better gas milage.

You'll also need to paint flames on it too. It'll go faster.

I'm currently sold on JJ's.
No regrets with either recent retubes for the Supro or the Traynor.

no fuck that noise. Matched is a term for Power Tubes (the big 6L6s that are in there) and even then there's debate as to whether it matters - stop here if you're not interested: It's to do with the c ...
