The neck is so ridiculously good. Not sure why I ever questioned the magic of the vintage radius and 24" scale.

Slight issues: the perloid is starting to flake off. The saddles are gappy. Set up is decent (I think it's got .010s right now). I don't have the right allen wrench to fine tune... Which do I need?

A tiny bit of blu tac inbetween the saddles should solve the problem with gaps.

Good to know, thanks! I suppose I'll try it as-is for a while and see.

The main issue with gaps is string buzz, right? I was getting a little buzz on the G and B, but it was better after I pushed the saddles closer. The gap between D and G is like the Grand Canyon Razz

Btw, it's a CIJ circa 2002.

Nice. I still like a Jag-Stang, twas the first offset/short scale I owned back in t'1990's.

Watch those grub screws in the bridge posts aren't loose as well, they can cause a rattle and work themselves loose. I used to rub dry candle wax on then then put them back in. Stops movement.

How you finding the bridge pup? Some sound woolly and dull.

Beauty. I'm a little jealous. I always look fondly on the Jag-Stangs I played back in the day.

I'm actually playing guitar more than I'm posting on shortscale! Amen.

Fran, thanks for the tip. I'll be sure to check those posts. The bridge needs a bit of love, to be sure. The humbucker actually sounds OK to my ears, but not sure if it's the original pup. Check out the cream cover...

see here's the thing about that



the fake pearl pickguard shouldn't be flaking on you. mine was 10 years old before i swapped it out for pizzastangmasterII pickguard but it was fine. AND I BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF IT.


this guitar is untouched, still has the protective plastic on the pickup, but the pickguard is flaking?


wut?

It's possible, different climates, lived in shops/warehouses instead of people-dwellin's etc...
My JS is 18 years old and its stock guard hasn't peeled or yellowed or anything.
