Think about getting a low price shortscale with a trem. Not really interested in a jag.

In youze guys opinion what's a better option: Rout a CV Duo Sonic for a Jaguar trem, or just buy a Squier Mustang?

For the Duo Sonic, the routing could be a bit messy but I'm not fussed about making it resellable. Jag trem is also my favourite trem.

For the Mustang, it feels like long time coming, one is up for sale in my local music shop right now! Problem is I'm not sure about the trem. Most people hate it but Johnny Noir gets sum kool sondz.

Really I guess the question is, is the Mustang trem good enough for surfy trem action? How much worse is it compared to a Jag trem?

(sorry i keep asking this from time to time)

You might want to check the Duo-Sonic body is thick enough for the deep rout a Jag trem needs.

What about a bigsby or bigsby variant of you're set on the Duo, there was a youtube video on here of someone who had done just that.

edit: flawless timing V

I wonder if the Squier DS Body will be thick enough to route for a Jaguar Trem. It'll be much easier to stick with the Mustang, and yeah, it works. It's more sensible, but it works.

Besides, I like this (exept for the socks - hate socks in gear videos):

No to jagmaster. Wrong trem and a jag body.

The guitar in my pic is mustang thickness. You just rout a one inch radius circle a little deeper for the spring and a separate one for full arm travel. It's been fine so far at least

As for the bigsby, I don't really like them and they're pricey. Especially not compared to a jag trem <3

I think the duo would be an interesting project and I absolutely loved the one I played when they came out.

I dont think the Stang trem is anywhere near as good as the Jag trem and its the trem you prefer so.. Probably route a Duo.
Its an easy route. Not sure what you would do for a bridge though, you may be able to raise the original saddles enough or you could be looking at more drilling for a TOM or traditional bridge.

I was planning to drill Tom posts. Tricky thing is measurements for that have to be quite precise and in line. It would be a good a step toward my own build though and templates would be available.

You could cheat on the centre line- just run a straight edge rule down the centre of the neck inlays then mark the body. For the scale length- measure from the inside of the nut down to the bridge position, make that the centre point for your TOM posts. You want to allow youself some adjustment on the saddles either way.

That way worked for me on the JS build.

Interesting project George, always fancied a CV Duo myself..
