STRATOID... Or a odd mix between a Mustang, a Strat and a Jaguar built from a 2nd-hand Harley-Benton "Mustang-like" MS60-LH-VW. I never had any HB guitar, nor any guitar fitted with the "questionable" Jaguar / Jazzmaster tremolo. So it's an experience... I bought it 2nd hand, like new , nearly unused, with still the plastic on the pickguard for 90 Euros shipped. I did not take high financial risks in that venture, that moreover quickly proved successful . Anyway, no Squier Jazzmaster, Jaguar or Mustang exists in LH, and the rare Fender ones are cost-prohibitive (better buy a Gretsch : right ? ) First step : setting the guitar to play correctly Picture as is. Nice but unplayable. Too light strings, binding here and there, random tuning tremolo, some other issues that I won't detail. Surprised ? No. Even on costy guitars you may find that - by my personal experience... Rewiring the electronics As Is : a bit messy but not so bad, pots are B500K, reverse mounted, one switch is loose... First rewiring : pots changed to A250K, C=22n, wiring shortened... Ah ! Well - then I notice that one pickup is in the wrong staggering sense, so PU 180° rotation, and let's improve the shielding... Setting up the tremolo The handle has too much backlash and the pivotal point of the tremolo was rough - other than that, it's correctly build part. Tremolo knife rectification - the poor pivotal contact killed any trem tuning stability, giving offset zero position : Working the headstock Nut replacement for a friction-less TUSQ XL PQL-5000-L0, eliminating one string tee, rising the other one : String installation and setup I opted for the usual 10-52 set on which I tin the ball ends to avoid any slipping : Bridge replacement for a generic big-studs roller bridge, on which I elimnated backlash (Loctite braking), remorking the tremolo handle mount for remaining backlash suppression : Setting up neck relief with notched straightedge and thickness gauges at 0.35mm / 8th box, setting up the action : End of the 1st step : the guitars plays as expected . She stays prefectly in tune, easy to play, no particular buzz (despite the shorter scale), the Wilkinson PU are quite powerful, a bit "in your face" in the treble range, though. I made 2 reharsal and 1 live to attest that. But time is to go further to the 2nd step, now... A+!
