There's also the Am. Special Mustang. I think it's been discontinued, but you can probably find a used one.

Update: I've cut a new pickguard and replaced the trem. I picked up a rusty '66 Mustang trem unit on ebay for $30, bathed it in vinegar and cleaned it up etc. This trem is much more stable than the C ...

I just recently started noticing the alignment on all my guitars, too. Specifically on one parts-Stang that I put together that didn't line up exactly straight. I've even noticed that the Fenders I ha ...

Generally, the Japanese necks and neck pockets are a little wider, so a non-Japanese neck would probably be a little smaller width-wise. Just thought I'd mention that.

Curious if the hardware is Japanese.

That would be my guess. I think all current Mustang parts are Japanese, aren't they?

Also, this all original '68 Competition Burgundy Mustang is listed on eb ...

Pretty much agree with everyone above - pickguards and covers look off, price tag is ridiculous.

Maybe I've gotten too used to the the shortscale crowd, but how comes everywhere else the Jaguar see ...

Nah, not really unless you find there is excessive noise. Unlikely if compared to the single coil.

You'll be grounding naturally when you install the pickup correctly. Easy !!

Cool, thanks!

The one that I had was a 5 position 4 pole (I think).

I'm sure it's possible.
I had something similar on a strat that is long since dismantled. However, I never took any pictures of it and never made a schematic.

The positions would be something like ...

Now I got Chamberlin on the brain. This video is sweet.



I love Jimmy. One of my all time favorite drummers. I wish they would've shown more of Geek U.S.A. That one song is a whole drum clinic.

It also depends on the guitar. If it's a Fender, Japanese necks are usually a little wider than American necks.
