Good job and nice looking guitar!  :-*


I'd restore the switches and bridge too!

Are you going to restore the bridge and mute?  Does the trem. function well? 

I :-* your jaguar.
I'm going to leave everything as is for now since it plays really nicely at the moment, and as a Gibson fan I have no hate for the tuneomatic.  Might pick up some vintage switches and a bridge to hold onto just in case I ever decide to sell one day, but this one feels like a keeper so that's unlikely.  The trem is really responsive but goes out of tune a lot without a proper jag bridge, but I'm sure that adding some graphite and widening the bridge slots would quickly fix that.  I never use the trem on my guitars so it's really not an issue anyway.  It's kind of weird that jags are my favourite guitars, but I never use the trem, rhythm circuit, strangle switch, or mute.  I guess i'm just in it for the looks.  :D
