If you go high gain prepare for audible ghost notes coming from behind the bridge. I ended up putting a hair bobble around the the strings to mute them.

Doing this right now and with vintage-wound Strat pickups.

Same thing but a bit of cut up mousepad under the string windings should get rid.

Thurston Moore does not approve.

Seriously though, I had a Steve Vai pickup in one Jag and it sounded like I had a weird EHX reverb/delay pedal on. I had to Palm mute everything I played until the penny dropped.

That finish looks cool as fuck. Some of the Squiers are finished like that although not reliced.

I kept looking at it thinking that isn't a factory finish... thanks.

Yeah, it’s also a satin finish. I wasn’t sure on it at first but it grew on me.

What’s the score with your ‘64?

It needs a refret. It's playable but about gone.

Not had the money to get it done and a bit nervous about it as well. The rosewood is thin. Thomas messaged me about it saying his luthier said it shouldn't be a problem, which sounds promising.

I'll get it done but other priorities at the moment like fixing the gutter, the dripping bath taps and sending funds to the National Front. Life's great in your late 40's Rob Laughing

Well good luck man.

Looking at replacements and saw this Yngwie Lolz

Brass nuts brighten the tone. Gordon Smith use them as standard, which works with the mahogany mass most of their guitars are.
Dunno about on a Jag though. I'd probably go bone, that might upset a few on here though Laughing

Fuck manland strings, it's all nonsense. It's not 1953 anymore, we use processing, amplification and don't want carpal tunnel.

I'm sure Iommi used banjo strings and stuff, which is possibly the equivalent to .07 gauge?

Yeah Iommi used the jerry-rigged equivalent of .008s downtuned, on account of his accident. Clapton and Page were using a .009 string as a high E but it was disproportionately lighter than the rest of their string set, and they didn’t tune down.

Billy Gibbons .007s are the only ones sold for guitar AFAIK. He says he was using really heavy strings “for fat tone” and BB King played his guitar and said “you’re making yourself work too hard.” A fan of BB’s tone (there’s few fatter in that line of work), he decided the whole heavy string thing was bullshit. But BB played .010s, I don’t know anyone who’s gone as light as Gibbons.
