MOD PROJECT: 2017 Fender “Mustang Jr” in Shell Pink

Post by seriouslyavery » Tue Jun 05, 2018 6:35 pm

I work at a music store, and I bought my 2011 Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster off of the owner, which sparked my love for offset guitars. I’ve always been predominantly a humbucker guy, and am a sucker for single pickup guitars, so I knew I wanted to do a single humbucker mod at some point.

Then in 2017, Fender released their new Offset Series, and although I had never paid much attention to Mustangs, the Shell Pink caught my eye. I LOVE Shell Pink. When we got one for the store, and I noticed how much I picked it up and jammed on it (the neck is super comfy and smooth!), I knew I had to get it. I put a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. in the bridge, but couldn’t get past the mid-range heavy sound of the pickup.

I then remembered I had a leftover Phat Cat and SH-5 lying around and knew I just had to give them both a shot. I will keep the forum updated once I receive my custom guard from Pickguardian!
Oh, and yes, I am sticking with the white pearloid, just routed for a single ‘bucker with no toggle!

Finally got the pickguard in the mail today and wired it all up! Put a single Seymour Duncan SH-5 in the bridge, single volume and tone. It sounds great!

This is awesome! Was the body already routed for humbucker in the bridge?

I believe all of the 2017 MIM Mustangs in the Offset Series lineup were routed for two P90s, so it worked out perfectly!

That's so rad! Pink Mustang's are the best!
