    OK - looks like someone has to do this - so I'll volunteer.


    Standard rules: post a pix of your VM-Jaguar Squier and we'll see how many members we can get.

    I'll keep records on Wordpad and as it grows, I'll copy/paste/post the names/numbers as they happen - OK?

    First things first - I'll put up my VM-Jag and let's see who's next.

    Send tips, tricks and concerns you notice about yours - good and/or bad and we'll see how these turn out.

    First thing I do is wax mine with about ten coats of carnauba wax and use a lot of high pressure from the bony part of my hand to heat up the wax as I rub it into the back of the neck to gloss it up.

    Just remember that I'm on California time and may be asleep when you are up or vice-versa. I'll get to everybody and if somehow I miss you, just either PM or yell at me here. Sundays and Thursdays I am pretty busy in a non-secular way.

    Here is a pic of mine I got this week. Really digging this bass. Just love the weight and the sound of the pickups.

    I have a set of Fender vintage threaded bridge saddles I was hoping to put on the Jag but they wouldn't fit. The bolts with the springs around them are too large of a diameter to pass through the bridge plate holes. I wish the bass had come with the bridge that is on my Classic Vibe 60's Precision. It is Squier's version of a high mass bridge and is very nice. A bridge modification/replacement is the only thing I plan on changing on the Jag, everything else is just right for me.

    First victim!

    bass4u is number 0002

    Keep us informed what the changes to tone/volume, etc you get by putting a Hi-Mass bridge on if you do it. I think it'll detract from the qualities that make this a truly different bass now.

    Let me know ASAP when it comes in so you can get a Charter Member Number.


    ADDENDA: bass4u, who signed off on your QC sticker on the plastic shield over the PG?

    If you still have it, snap a pix of it too. Let's see whose was built/inspected first. I put mine under the PG and can take it out later - after I play it for a while that is.

    I threw the sticker away but the build date was June 23rd.

    I'm looking for a bridge plate that will fit the Fender threaded saddles I have. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Heck - let's play them a while first!

    The neck is great, the electronics scream at you and the action is flawless.

    What else does one need?

    A heavy bridge is just gonna suck some of the built-in tone out of it for the sake of bragging rights - so why even go there?

    Unless something breaks, then I vote to leave them as they are.

    FWIW: My wife's still all original equipment too.

    I'm not necessarily looking for a HM bridge, just a regular bridge plate that will fit my threaded bridge saddles so I can get the string spacing I desire. I normally play Precisions or Stingrays which have a wider neck than the Jag.

    The bass itself was $315.00 and I bought a hardshell case as well. I think the total, taxes in was $460 or somewhere in that ballpark.

    Thursdays I am not very available, that's why the slight delay there, BulbousMoses - and then there's sleep.

    They look very well made.. too bad I'm not a fan of the shape. If they did a stack pot jazz I'd be all over it!

    I just picked one up today. Gotta get pictures.

    "14 July 2010" Inspected by....'Doris' !

    Doris needs to do a better job Q.C.ing the volume pots. One of them was faulty. The tech at the store fixed it so hopefully no more issues.

    I would love to see Cream pick-up covers on one of these basses.
