So I've been going back and forth for about a year on picking up one of these to play around with. I saw this pickguard listed on Reverb and that made me finally decide to buy the guitar. Ended up that it was on sale for $119. Such a steal for this guitar! Anyhoo...I played it for a few hours through various styles and decided that the pickups sucked. I had just bought some humbuckers for a cheap LP clone I had collecting dust for like 10 years. Decided to throw them in the Mustang instead. Here's what I've done so far: New Pickups: BYOGuitar Eruption (They're just rebranded Tonerider Rocksongs) All new electronics - CTS 500k pots with a CDE Mallory .047uf 250v 150M cap. Fender P-Bass knobs Replaced the saddles with some old Fender stamped saddles that I had in the parts box. Conditioned the fretboard and polished up the frets. Threw on some Ernie Ball 10's Man...what a fun little guitar this is! Can't believe how good this neck is for the price! The neck alone is worth the cost of the whole guitar. The nut is complete garbage, so that will be next to go. Not a huge fan of the bridge. I either need to shorten the screws or I might just try that ebay bridge that was posted earlier in the thread. Between the nut and those saddle screws, I'm getting some buzz and I can't intonate it correctly. Other than that, I am loving this guitar so far! My next project is the Strat next to it. 92 MIM is finally getting new Bootstrap pickups and electronics after almost 28 years.
