    Hi Jagmaster Owners,

    I'm newer here and am in the process of doing my own Jagmaster mod. I have thread going over on the Jagmaster board that will continually be updated! BUT, I want to see all of your mods and creativity right here in this thread. I think it will be a good place for people like me in the future to check out the ideas others had and maybe even be a starting point for their mods.

    So post your mods and explain what you did and any other tips or tricks for future moders!

    I found my Jagmaster on CL for $100 in 2016.
    My mods included:
    Painted the ugly tort PG black.
    Replaced pickups with SD Pearly Gates and Gibson 496r.
    3 way rotary switch w/ chicken head knob.
    Witch Hat V-T knobs.

    But then I went back to the stock pickups and toggle, back to stock knobs, but also had to use flat humbucker rings to cover the cuts I made earlier to fit the nickel pu cover from the mod. The guitar just sounded better stock to me.
    Here it is now.

    Sometimes, “upgrades” can really improve a guitar. In the case of this one, it did not in my opinion. Although I do like the black pg over the tort

    How do you feel about the GFS quality? I was going to use GFs active pickups but they were out of stock. I found EMGs instead used at a good price. But still may want to use GFS pickups in the future.

    GFS quality is hit and miss..But I will say this, when I get something from them that I'm not happy with they do try to make me happy..
    As for their pickups, The ones I used were, IMHO , as good as most other's higher priced ones..
    But since I've discovered Rose pickups I look no further..
