I like the look and spec of the Cyclone but I'm waiting until I can try one. All depends on the neck, if it's like the Mustang VM it would be a no-go - far too clubby for my small hands.

Hi,
I've got a Mustang VM in Sonic Blue and find the neck far too clubby for me, I've got small hands (should have known better than to buy without trying). As a result it's just sat in it's gigbag ...

Still got the 505II. Cost £70 way back - soon bought a Boss GT6 since replaced with a pod hd500x. If you're patient (maybe desperate) you can get some useful sounds out of it. Only good points are ...

Hi Bear Boy,

Not worth posting pics as it looks just like a standard jag except fot the staytrem and that's only marginally different. However, if you're interested I'll scan and post drawings of ...

Hi Paul,

I really like the Staytrem tremolo. No more messing around with loose and wobbly arm or endlessly replacing PTFE tape.

The arm stays where I want it and is positive in action. Will pu ...

Next stage in modding a Squier VM Jag. The guitar was bought specifically to mod it into a 'general purpose' axe because I have bad arthritis in the hands and a short scale is a lot easier for me. (I ...

I have confirmation from Fender technical support that the resistor is a treble bleed. This is a pretty crude version and I believe has also used by Ibanez. On the new American Pro Jag the Volume/Ton ...

Thanks Paul,

I suspect its some sort of treble bleed as it looks similar to the rather crude circuit that is sometimes used (I think its usually used by Ibanez - where it is reputed to make the sou ...

Decent Alpha pots
