My favourite colour; congratulations, it's really beautiful!
Yeah, seconded all around.

My dream version has always been exactly this but with a B&B neck. This looks incredible though!

Did you get a good deal?!

Thanks! I think it was fair both ways. :)

That might be the nicest LPB I've ever seen. Easily one of my favorite colors, and with matching headstock :? :? I hope you enjoy the hell out of that one!!

Beautiful color! I had it's older brother, a 63 Jag, L series s/n, matching headstock. I sold it in the 80s to the Laguna Beach Guitar Shop.

God, that color is unique. Deep deep Lake Placid Blue, man... :?

Congratulations! My 64 jazz also has pearl instead of clay, I always thought they were a replacement! :fp:

Looking at the pick of the switch plate, the wiring seams to be correct (when compared to the Jaguar's wiring schematic).
Although, you might want to take a look under the rythem circuit plate as well. Perhaps a wire got crossed/swithced there to create the out of phase sound.

If you have the out of phase sound in the middle posittion (both pick ups on) it could be that the neck pick up wires are reversed at the rythem swithc.
Normally the neck pick up goes directly to the the rythem switch and a seperate wire (the orange on on the left in the pics of the 3 way swithc plate) comes from the rythem switch system. The rythem switch just engages the neck pick up only to the upper vol. and tone wheel, when switched down the neck pick runs to 3 selector switch plate (via the above mentioned orange wire) which seams to be stock as well.

You might want to try and switch the wires coming from the neck pick up to see if this solves the out of phase sound when both pick ups are on.

Both pick ups should have a black wire each (ground) and a colored wire (hot) either yellow or white (although other colours could be possible)

Also normaly if the set is RWRP, the neck and bridge pick ups pole pieces (on the upside of the pickups) should atract to each other.
The wires should be reversed (meaning hot and ground) when you compare the bottom side of each pick up.
So there should be no out of phase sound when both pick ups are on. (Same as on the strat's 2 and 4 position)

I hope this makes some sense....

Anyway, that's an amazing Jaguar you got there.... :?

Damn beautiful guitar. Can never decide on what my favorite color is between this, Fiesta Red, and Burgundy Mist.

It's like if the crackwhore Jag was in good condition and didn't arrive in a children's coffin

This reminds me of the LPB Jag that Dave Wronski plays/ed. I don't know why but Jags always seem to pop more in custom colours to me and this one is no exception.

Beautiful instrument.

It's comments like these that make me think we need a 'like' button.
