Blame Sean!! (Triple Bucker Costello Themed Jazzmaster)

Post by HNB » Thu Oct 08, 2020 5:28 pm

In my Costello thread, Shadoweclipse13 linked a Costello video where he played a triple bucker Jaguar. I prefer Jazzies so that got me kind of wanting to make a Costello style triple bucker. It is only that style in color. I am making this one hard tail string through. I have three Duncan Distortions. I am going to wire the middle to the upper pots and use 1meg pots for each. Body came today and I got to work shielding the guard, mounting the electronics, and staining the body. I need humbucker screws so those will wait. I am going to refinish a Squier Affinity Jazzmaster neck that I had used before. :) Here are the starter pics.

I started with ebony stain but it was kind of light.

So I went over that with walnut special and it was way better.

You’re really going all in with the walnut finishes lately.

LOL I guess. Feels like a shame to paint a pretty price of wood black or white. I wanna show that shit off. :D

That would be awesome! :D

I took the finish off the Jazzy neck. :)

I love when I get on OSG and see a thread saying it's my fault :D :D Sean/Sleazy is the one who posted that video, though I'm sure that some of weirder schematics have caused me to be at fault for a project once or twice ;)

Sweet looking one Chris!!!

Not that it changes in any way how neat of a guitar this will be, but the Jaguar in the video that spawned this most definitely has three Jaguar single coils, no buckers.

Ah. It was pixely and I thought maybe it was three strat size mini's. :) Makes more sense though since he seems to dig single coils. :)

You're back in action, Chris!! :w00t:

I'm glad you're providing us some fine quantity & quality content.
Netflix should give you a dedicated TV series on your projects. I'm sure you'd get high rates and season renewals :-*

Beautiful work on the Costello Jazzy and, btw: I LOVE the Silverburst!! It's bloody gorgeous!

Keep'em coming!

Thanks!! I love the silverburst also. It is probably my favorite Jazzy. :D It is hard for me to just pick one guitar though. I like them all for different reasons and moods. :)

I am glad people enjoy the stuff I do to push off anxiety. LOL It helps me to have things to concentrate on and problem solve. I really enjoy the process. Ideally I could do it for work, but I am a teacher by trade. :)

Clear going on. It is no way yellow like the pictures look. It is dark brown. LOL

Custom wiring is pretty much done. :) The mini toggle turns the middle pickup on or off. Otherwise it is wired like a normal Jazzmaster other than the upper pots are connected to the middle pot. That way I have the option of middle alone or mixing it in with the other two pickups. :) Once my humbucker screws come in, I can get those connected and wired.
