    Hi
    Does anyone know the dimensions of the pickups in the Squier Jaguar Vintage Modified Special?
    I have a set of EMG X P/J pickups. The length of these pickups are as follows:

    J-Pickup
    Length:3.70"(94mm)
    Width:0.73"(18.5mm)

    P-Pickup
    Length:2.25"(57.2mm)
    Width:1.10"(27.9mm)

    I've got my eye on this Jaguar, but I'll have to order it in through my local store.

    I love the EMG pickups. Thinking either black or ivory??

    I have the PJX pickups in my Aerodyne, if you do go with the purchase also grab the ABCX blend control to fix the insertion loss you'll get with both pickups on full.

    If I solo or favor each of the individual pickups, I have more output and no noticeable effect on the tone other than the pickups doing their thing. With both volume pots up full, I have a noticeable volume drop and some mids get scooped out. The ABCX blend control fixes this, and I kind of prefer Volume/Blend/Tone instead of Volume/Volume/Tone anyways.

    Here is a dodgy photoshop of what it might look like.

    And perhaps some of those vinyl pearl block stickers on the fretboard??
