    Hello! I've recently been offered a jaguar bass by squier for 75 bucks. I do not like the PJ combination on it, but I would like to have a bass that looks like a jaguar deluxe. Has anyone done this conversion? Would it be possible to do something of this magnitude by routing all the cavities and buying the parts?

    I can be done, but there's a lot of routing & rewiring to do. The wiring schematics for the Jag Dlx exist online.

    I'm sure the wiring would be easy for me. What I'm worried most about is if the new cavities will fit well on the body and if all the new parts will fit correctly.

    are you sure about that?

    Better a professional to do that, then remains the problem of lookin' for the proper deluxe pickguard and to combine it with screwholes on the Squier Jaguar

    Cheers,

    I would just route for a jazz PU where the P PU is, and make it a jazz.

    Ok, I really think no peculiar problem with only that, after all;)

    All the parts are easily had. I would just square out the existing P route then put in most any pup you want.
    Darren Riley's and GR Guitars are great places for parts.
