I got sick of the poopy dull looking sunburst on my jag parts caster so I painted a body I had left over with a cheap airbrush and some scale model lacquer paints. Its kind of uneven but at least it's much brighter than the previous body. (It seems like Fender holds the real looking sunburst paint job for its really high priced models and puts a really dull poop burst on the cheaper ones. :whateva: ) Also stuck Jazzmaster pickups in it because I kinda don't like Jag pickups. It doesn't really sound like a Jazzmaster but sounds better than before.

That's a good looking Jag!

Once you get north of $1k, they'll upgrade you from poopburst to urineburst:

redid it again since i painted a JM body sunburst and didnt want 2 sunburst offsets, wanted to try and get that weird metallic olive color that vintage light blue metallic Fenders turn to from UV exposure

There was a luna moth wing on the patio too that seemed to match color :wha?:

Shitty picture but it's raining outside - Greco Dan Armstrong copy that arrived today. I think this dual blade humbucker is the hottest pickup I've used, it never really cleans up with the little 1W Marshall I have here (where PAF style humbuckers at the same spot are clean). Tonight's plans involve getting high and pretending I'm Greg Ginn (but slightly less assholish).

I just picked this up today. 1990 MIJ Jackson RR5. Duncan Distortion in the bridge and Jazz in the neck.

Put normal strings on the tele, pulled the firebird pickup and put the ashtray/pickup back on. I was fed up with my Tokai strat going out of tune when using the vibrato and the fact that it doesn't have a bridge+neck option (yet-gonna mess with blender wiring next time I'm messing with it). It was a bit of an 'idle hands' situation coz I was really bored too, but it's actually a really fantastic blues machine now. Mojo goldfoil has midrangey grunt, bridge pickup (which is probably a fender nocaster pickup) is sharp as a goddamn hanzo sword and they sound really sweet together for the steve cropper stuff I'm always trying to rip off.

Had an unfortunate incident with USPS destroying my PRS Mira, and had to get a new PRS.

Drove out to Wild West Guitars in Pasadena yesterday and picked up this beauty. Had a great experience—nothing but good things to say about them.

2018 CE-24 from their exclusive run in faded gray black burst with 57/08s, a natural back, and black neck/headstock.
