NGD squier musicmaster

Post by niksureal » Fri Aug 07, 2009 6:15 pm

i got a squier musicmaster. i have been wanting one for quite some time. i had this vision of how i could mod it so it wouldnt have the ugly pickguard that it comes with and maybe a single coil instead of the humbucker. so after getting it and completing the mods it looks like a combination of a bronco and a mustang. i cut a pickguard for it of my own design and put a mustang pickup in it. i wired it so that the coil tap is now a kill switch. i got a little carried away on the pickguard near where your arm would go, it got a little uneven but oh well. its hard to tell and it only bothers me a little. either way, i fucking love it.

Nice. Where do people find these cause eBay is a wasteland for any sort of good priced musicmasters

Excellent! I love the color of that one and those are quite rare guitars. I almost bought one a few years ago that was pink.

yeah. i loved it so much as soon as it was done but the more i look at the pickguard the stranger it looks to me. i might make a new one, or ill just leave it and have a weird looking guitar, either way its way better than how it looked with the stock guard in my opinion. also when i initially drew it up i wanted the pickguard to come up the the bottom corners of the neck. i dont know why, it must have been a short lived ocd fit. it also looks way better in person. the pics make it look a bit weirder than it really is.

Very nice. Is the musicmaster a shortscale?

I wonder how it would look with a silver pup cover. The white seems to blend into the pickguard....

I guess I'll start googling the musicmaster. Didn't realize there was another Vista series.
