For me, the VM was lighter than my CIJ, and sounded better. I didn’t like the fretboard edges, but I should just have rolled them really.

I think overall though, I preferred the 7.25” radius of the cij. Which is odd, as I love my jmjm. But yeah, roll the fretboard.

I did that with my Bullet Mustang, definitely improved things!

They stopped making bullets I thought. Fender now uses pastel colored daddario branded strings.

My 60s mute arrived



Admittedly, I do just like the look of the mute on a Jaguar and think it just looks right. But I do like the odd sounds it creates. Am trying to make it work with different pedals for more wackness!

Changed the gross melted rubber for some B & Q weather stripping.



I also stayed up till 4am unwinding the bridge pickup. This was to try and reduce its 11.4 ohms. What a fucking chew on! Got it down to 6.5 ohms without incident. My old Jag is 6.4 in the neck and 6.0 in the bridge so this is close.
Plugged in with headphones before I went to bed...sounded pretty good. But the claws haven't Grounded properly with my shit soldering so I need to sort that out.

I always think the mute looks cool. Never had one myself, don’t think they exist lefty Sad Just like vintage Jags came with righty trems.
Good work on having the patience to unwind that pickup!

It wasn't particularly hard...just patience needed and a understanding wife.

"What the hell are you doing, let me ask you? And why is our son choking on all this wire you've filled the room with?"

(looking fearfully askance at the wife) "J-j-j-jaguar just doesn't sound right... overtones... I mean... they're just not there..." (a long awkward pause)

Yes. The two screw holes were in the guard but not the body. Unlike the Japanese Jags there was no plunger hole in the guard. So around 11 or 12mm hole drilled into the guard and body about 34mm deep.

Easy job.
