Anyone recommend a US builder who can do a body and matching neck? I'm kinda paranoid of buying a body and then having the neck not match correctly. I'm particularly looking for a Jag body with a custom rout (just universal pickup routs), and a maple fretboard neck that has a traditional Jag headstock shape. I combed through the thread, and tried to do a search in the forum, but "jaguar" and "builder" are terms that don't help much haha... Any help much appreciated! :)

We have so many great threads of people building or modifying offsets here. I've certainly been inspired to start hacking away at my guitar.  :P  To find parts I always have to search out those great threads and find the links that they so graciously posted to suppliers. I figured it'd be great to have a Sticky with links and suggestions. I petitioned the Ad-Mods and they said "Do it yourself, ya hoser." True story. Their exact words....

So, what kind of wire did theolderbrother use on his Jazzmaster Deluxe and where did he get it? Where does stereordinary get his paint, and what has he used in the past that he would suggest we steer clear of? This distributer has vintage-correct [X], but these other guys sell [X] cheaper. And so forth... Post it here, look here.




Where can you get it, how much, and where do they ship to/from? Also, whether or not you've bought from them and if you'd recommend.




Bodies:

Anyone know of where I can pick up white witch hat knobs? I’ve tried all the sites on this thread and can either not find them or can only see the (expensive) Fender ones.

Allparts has them. Several reverb sellers have the cheaper ones too.

Surely this thread deserves a reboot/update? Half the links don't even work and there's a crazy number of suppliers that have popped up since.

Copied from another thread. I didn't want to see this valuable info get lost.

There is a swag of unbranded trems sold by 'name' companies, some of which may be from the same source (?), but whose origins are generally obscure ...

With trem locks ...

No lock ...

Similar perhaps to the "Gotoh" JM trem (that isn't) I have also seen a purported "Kluson" trem with no actual branding.
