Installing a middle pickup :: 1997 Fender Jaguar [8.9 lbs]
A made in Japan Jag in for a middle pickup installation. This guitar has been in the shop a few times before to remove a Buzz Stop, replace a Tuneomatic with a Mastery bridge and swapping out the pickups for Lollars.
Adding a middle pickup involved routing the pickguard, copper top shield and the body (prep photo here). The low-cut / strangle switch was moved to a Bourns 1 meg push-pull pot that replaced the stock tone pot. The original Lollar neck pickup was moved to the middle position and a new Curtis Novak went up front. All pickups are selected via the three-switch plate.
This setup sounds incredible. Wow.
