It looks and I'm sure plays after you've set it up gorgeous.

Do you have to drill into the body and pickguard to add the spring for the mute?


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.


Did it this morning. All fully working!

Thanks sunshiner!

Thanks for the info on adding the spring hole for the mute. It does look ace, every extra bit of chrome adds a little something divine to a jag

Thanks guys! For those not lucky enough to follow me on Instagram @destroying_amps.

I posted this yesterday



My original plan was to paint this guitar..but I cant settle on a colour and strangely I am quite liking the white...I have thought about spraying some tinted nitro on top to age/ dull it a bit. What do you guys think?

I have a couple of guards from Doogs collection to try out on the way, plus some new pickup covers as I had a turmeric accident with the current ones. Plus some new pickup screws Embarassed

The white does look good. A bit of tinted nitro might make it look even better, but need a be a bit careful with White I think, don’t want it turning custard yellow...

Yes this is my worry. Aged white can either look really good or bile!

Can you layer-up a slightly tinted clear coat, so it's subtle enough and won't go full custard over the years?

Yes that would be the plan, lightest tint available then some extra clear over the top. In fareness if it goes custard in 40 years I am hardly going to care!

It would obviously have to get a matching headstock too...if I went this route...

Your old pal Doog sent me some guards from his private collection to try on.

I have settled on pizza guard


We are sorting out a monthly subscription where he sends me a new guard each month! Laughing

That looks great, I agree a slightly darker tint would complete the look.

It's like the Poundland version of a Spitfire guard.
