Newly Modified American Original Jaguar

Post by GreenKnee » Fri Jan 08, 2021 12:56 am

So this is my American Original Jaguar, newly revamped with a shell pink nitro finish, Mojo Firebird Goldfoil pickups, KC toggle switch, Emerson pots and bumblebee cap.

This thing looks beautiful, sounds mega, and feels oh so sweet to play after a little setup. I'm going to try and get some samples recorded this evening and post them here.

The full transformation can be seen here:

It looked like this before, I'd fitted the Mastery bridge and vibrato:

That's a lovely guitar - great colour!

I presume you are happy with Ozzy Owl's work - it's good to know of someone who can do this work in Sheffield - dare one ask how much the respray was?

He's obviously a Wednesdayite too!! ;D
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before....

He does outstanding work, I first had my 1962 Jaguar refretted by him ( http://www.ozzyowl.co.uk/the-workshop/r ... er-jaguar/ )

On the itemised invoice the respray in nitro was £100. This is the first time I've had a guitar resprayed, but I feel that's very reasonable.


I assumed we're all Wednesday, aren't we? ;)

He lives very close to me as well so it was nice and easy dropping it off and collecting the guitar at his house :)

Thanks for the kind words, I'm really looking forward to trying it out with some proper volume. At the minute I'm confined to the spare bedroom with a Strymon Iridium

Of course WAWAW!! :D

£100 sounds very reasonable indeed, too. Enjoy!!

Looks super! Please do put up this demo when you get the time. I am interested in how it sounds with these pickups.

Looks great!
I was looking for one of those switch plates but ended up getting a Marr style one. Where did you find it?

I got it from Custom World Guitar Parts ( https://www.customworldguitarparts.com/ ... crews.html) but I bought it on eBay from them. Around a tenner +p&p

Got a very quick demo of the pickups recorded

https://www.dropbox.com/s/pnfy67f0g0gm2 ... s.mp3?dl=0

First melody is neck, 2nd both pickups, 3rd is bridge pickup and a little dirt from an Earthquaker Devices Plumes. Reverb comes from an Earthquaker Devices Afterneath V3, and I'm using a Strymon Iridium as an "amp and cab"
