My copper jag from Rexter

Post by Trout » Fri Jan 04, 2019 5:28 am

It arrived today and I can’t praise his work enough. Crappy iPhone picture but you get the idea

So far I have got a set of SD Antiquity, black pickguard ( American pro series) plus a Staytrem bridge and US tremolo. Found a set of Kluson locking tuners also.

Plates, electronics and a neck still to find. I will send the neck to Rexter to get a matching headstock.

Yes, it was kinda unreal. Was buying the pickups when I just had a notion to ask if he had more jag stuff. He sold me the bridge for 50 $

So the neck arrived and I just can’t wait for this to be assembled

But I’m busy and it will be some time before this is finished. Btw the neck is a 60's laquer rosewood neck that I bought on german eBay for 150 euros :w00t: Jon fitted me a new nut 👌🏽

Fuck is that sexy. I'm glad you went with a black guard too. It would look strange with a white/mint/parchment I think. Red tort or red pearloid would be interesting too, but I think black is best here.
