Hi everyone, I'm brand spankin' new to this forum after being a long-time lurker and I'm happy to report that after years of Jag envy and a short time of owning the MIM Classic Player HH Jag without totally bonding with it, I'm once again in the short-scale club! I found a well-loved CIJ HH Jag on Boston's Craigslist for $300 and bit the bullet. Enough of my blathering though, onto the pics!





As you can see, this guy's been modified a tiny bit. I initially wasn't a fan of the white pickguard and wanted to take it back to the stock black, but it's growing on me so I think it'll stay for a while. When I looked under the hood while cleaning it up, changing strings, and intonating it I saw that the replacement P-90's are GFS, though I didn't see if they were Dream or Mean 90's. After putting a fresh set of 10s on this thing sounds baller, clear but thick clean and very well defined with dirt. This one's a total keeper and will probably leap-frog my Tele for the #1 spot in my arsenal.

Welcome to the forum! That's really nice with the white guard, I would leave it if it were mine. Gotta love the GFS P90s too.

What kinda other guitars you into?

Thanks for the warm welcome! Gear wise I've got ...deep breath now... a Fender Baja Telecaster, an Epiphone Dot, a Danelectro DC-59 12 String, a Squier Bass VI, and a beat up old Yamaha Acoustic. I love each one of them, but the Jag is just too much fun right now. The look, versatile controls, and feel of the shorter neck are making this one tops at the moment.

do liek

I used to think black with white guard looked cheap. Probably an association with super-crappy cheap strat copies that were EVERYWHERE around 2000.

BUT NOW I LOVE IT
