So, I've always had an attraction to offset guitars. Don't know why, I just find them so damn cool But I never found the guts to buy one, last time I came close I ended up buying a Tele. Somehow I could't justify one... until now. Found this in a pawn shop for 70 bucks. It's a Squier Jagmaster. And for starters, it's seriously pretty: Now, it has 2 very bad paint chips/scratches at the two bottom contours (didn't pictured them 'cause camera ran out of battery ) but it looks like someone was playing it and the strap failed and i just hit a ....ing concrete stage or the street or something. Other than that, it's practically new. THE GOOD: there is some feel of quality in the woods. resonates nice unplugged and the alder has nice grain. Tuners are nice enough, I have a heavy strumming hand and they seem to keep up with me. bridge feels sturdy, although I don't use the whammy bar so I can't comment on that. The best thing is the neck, a seriously nice slim profile and very VERY nice fretwork, and for me, a nice neck can compensate for a not-that-nice guitar (Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the guitar is bad, the neck is just THAT good) THE BAD: Electronics. Seriously anybody thinking/saying that Duncan Designed pickups are the same as SD but made in China is full of shit. This things are horrible, period. Pots and the PU selector feel cheap, basically, Everything electronic has to go. THE PLAN: I'm considering a full overhaul. New paintjob, tuners, bridge, pickups, pots, nut, the works. I feel it's about time I learn to do shit I feel confident about my internet research skills to figure out how to do most stuff, and I've got you guys in case I get stuck I'm thinking Dakota red, black pickguard, and gold hardware, kinda like this (but w/o the jazzmaster bridge): Or maybe sheerwood green, tortoise pickguard and gold hardware: What do you guys think? should I go for it?
