    Jaguar, inc.

    Why yes, I am posting pictures of my Jags instead of doing my job...I think Jags take the crown for beauty and I find them very easy to play. On the left is my AVRI62 Jaguar in classic sunburst and weighing close to 9lbs. I just had it refretted with stainless 6105s and I love it! On the...

    I think Al Green is the master of spooning music.

    Jazzmaster bridge

    I own an AO 60's Jazzmaster, and this is my story... The neck pocket angle is excessive on mine. I found the mastery bridge didn't sound good on this guitar. I've found over the years that the mastery sounds best when it's riding low, maybe 1/8" above the pick guard. If the break angle is...

    Do You Trust Your Brain?

    Brains work better <fnord> when they are networked. Collaboration can be magical...I don't trust my brain when it's working solo.

    You are making insurance companies very happy by having this conversation. If you're sick, it's your fault. That's why healthcare is so expensive in this country...right...

    Cracked X-brace

    Thank you for explaining that, and sharing your wealth of knowledge, Freeman! I don't know what to expect in a 1990 Guild, but at least nothing else appeared to be broken or coming unglued in the top or back.

    Cracked X-brace

    Maybe some people do modify the bracing on guitars, but I don't think that's common, and requires some skill and knowledge (which I lack). I think it probably left the factory with this bracing.

    Could a shrinking pickguard do that?

    Cracked X-brace

    I took it in and it will only be $45 to glue the brace. I'm glad I didn't do it myself because it really doesn't want to close up. What the luthier and I also noticed is that the bracing doesn't extend into the kerfing. It's just glued to the back but not anchored. I wonder if somebody has...
