    so I was considering picking up a duo-sonic at a local shop. But then I saw a Jagmaster on Craigslist, which I picked up for $220.

    I’m a telecaster kinda guy mostly, and also own a Gretsch. But I had no guitars with humbuckers, thus the Jagmaster.

    So at that price, I ordered GFS Humbucker+P90, new saddles, new wiring harness (current one is pretty crackly). I’m gonna put it all together, string it with 11s and see what I got.

    I was unexcited about the current pickups, a little fizzy, and that’s what started this chain of parts-ordering. And it will still cost less than the used duo-sonic I was thinking of.

    So hope to post pics and a report on how this turns out, if folks are interested.

    Keep us posted! I’m redoing a Jagmaster myself. I’ve been about 1 week away from finishing it... for the last 2 months.

    Hopefully you can work more speedily than I :)

    Hey hey hey! I put a GFS Mean 90 in the neck of my Jagmaster. Sounded great. I did need to shave down the pup hole a bit to accommodate the Mean 90...I recently returned the stock pups and gave the guitar to my brother. Sounds pretty d3cent to me.

    Pics, before/after would be nice!
