    That looks very similar to my OS, although nicer. But, it's got almost the same neck, with the same tuners, headstock shape, dual string trees, and the same style bridge, like those on the Bullet Strats with trem, with the same saddles. Similar serial number too- mine is S19041034. Does it have skinny vintage style frets? I just noticed the OS has a 9.5" radius, but with the small vintage frets. I kinda like that. And, I just realized I don't have any spare gigbags anymore, so I'm gonna have to buy one for the OS.

    Looks like you stole that ! Great looking mod platform. Our old music store before it closed sold a lot of Jay Turser
  3. Measurements and further investigation will have to wait until I can break this down.
    At this point I'm not sure what the end result will be.
    Thanks for the up side compliments on this 'un. Cheers, Barrie.

  5. I took the pick guard off for a look … no surprises there. No shielding paint & cheap Chinese parts.


    Cheers, Barrie.

    That looks just like the Oscar Schmidt! Same HHH routing and identical ceramic pickups. I guess the OS-300 and JT-300 are basically the same guitar with a different name on the headstock. They even both use the 300 model number with just a different two letter prefix for Jay Turser or Oscar Schmidt.

    I have a black S10 Vintage Series. I like it a lot. The neck feels good and is pretty slick, no sharp edges, etc...The electrics still need improvement but overall a pretty nice guitar...The quilt is a definite plus on yours. HNGD!

  9. If I'm going to hang onto this guitar, I'll upgrade the wiring harness and pickups. I'll have to check the neck a bit closer. The neck could be thinner (front to back) so I'll put the calipers on in it and compare to some others I have. Fret ends are OK, but a light touch up is in order.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Slim.....I am thinking now all my measurements are wrong, because I used a caliper and INCLUDED the height of the fret on all my previous measurements lol

    I had one also. As I recall it had a thin neck but sounded good.

  14. I'm tempted to get a new (to my liking) neck, and gut the p/ups and wiring harness. No knee jerk reactions at this point … just a even keeled evaluation over time.
    Cheers, Barrie.
