Aye. The only reason to use those plates is if it is the 12 string one and you are building a 12 string JM.

I had one and never completed the guitar. Because I am an idiot, clearly.

Hi all - for transparency, I was on here as Snorre back in 2017 for about 2 minutes...then I got distracted by a shiny light...as one does. I think you can find one of my posts on page 94 of this thread, heh. I see some familiar faces on here, so I'll try not to get distracted this time. :oops:

Here are my current shorties...

From L to R:
  • Squier VM Mustang a.k.a., Stimpy'Stang with Fralin Hum-Cancelling Mustang pickups and a cool black 9.5" radius bridge
  • '66 Fender Mustang (some of you may already have seen this rehabbed/refin'd "Stripper'Stang (stripped down to wood with glitter glued to original pickguard...which thankfully has been fully restored) on OSG.
  • '63 Fender Jaguar (pro refin'd by previous owner), my #1. Original bridge is safely stored away - using a Mastery bridge
  • NGD! Squier Classic Vibe '70s Jag Ltd. Edition - other than putting D'Addario 11s on and awaiting a new pickguard, no plans to modify anything else on this beastie - love it!
  • Squier VM Jaguar- my first full attempt at a refinishing project during the pandemic - sherwood green with matching headstock, Fender PV '65 pickups


Image

The Stimpy'Stang with his buddy, the non-shortie Ren Höekmaster (a.k.a., Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster refin'd in shell pink with matching headstock, Novak JM-HC Gold Foil pickups, purple FSR Mastery bridge & tremolo)

My anodized gold pickguard from Eyparts arrived today - I'll have to make some minor filing adjustments near the lower bout control plate and the left bridge post (low E-side) but for now, it fits alright.

When I was watching it today on my laptop the batch of the photos in the first post didn't download for some reason. Anyway, that's one sexy guitar

Thanks! I bought the Squier J Mascis new back in 2012 and I've gigged with it back in my punk surf band, World Famous Philistines. I've always felt it was a fantastic sleeper guitar for it's cost. A lot of guitars have come and gone but the Squier J Mascis JM will be here for life. A funny evolution...

Foolishly gave away my original anodized pickguard to a friend - years later, found a replacement.

If I ever get another one, I'd keep it totally stock...maybe swap out the bridge, heh.

Vintage white. It's a Squier VM Body but previous owner has sanded all the gloss outta it. Guess they were gonna refin it but gave up?

Still waiting on trem arm and switches but should hopefully be finished end of next week.
