Hi,
I finally scored a JM after 30 years of lusting after one.
It’s a 1996 MIJ designed for and in conjunction with The Ventures.
Sure it has a bit of unnecessary bling but it plays beautifully & sounds amazing (the Ash body & Seymour Duncan Antiquity I’s sure do help). The black burst over Ash is spectacular.
Oh and that tremolo action is heavenly.

A few pics of my brand new Am Pro Jag, and an old pic of a Mustang and Bronco I have since sold. Really wish I had the Bronco still.

Thanks! I'm actually not sold on the black guard myself. I'm going to purchase one tort and one mint, so I can switch them out on a whim. Switching pickguards can sometimes temporarily subdue my eternal GAS.

Finally got a tort guard on there, I like it. What do you think?

Haha, I actually thought so too. This guard is from WD Music, but I will probably get a Spitfire eventually.

I like the black guard much better with that color....especially with the maple neck and black marker dots, switch tips, and control knobs..

I like tort with some colors and have a couple.........but I don't think tort looks good with all colors. The black pg on that solid green, and on similar colors like the new Sonic gray just offers a nicer and crisper contrast IMO. Add tort = too many different colors......

Interesting, I can understand that perspective. I'm probably going to get a mint or cream one as well, then swap them out every now and then to suite my mood.

Yes - I've done that before. Had white, black, (brown) tort, and mint on my surf green jag. After a couple of rounds, the mint stayed on that one.

BTW, congrats on the new AmPro Jag!
