[The Music and Thoughts of Paul Lathrop Wineinger]
Remember that Fender Modern Player Jaguar? I finally got around to adding a custom pickguard and  new Jazzmaster knobs. Pickguard was hand traced and sent to WD Music for printing. Had to make a few minor adjustments to get it to fit perfectly. Next up, bigsby! #fender #fenderjaguar #fenderguitars #fenderjazzmaster #jaguar #projectguitar #projectguitars #modernplayer #modernplayerjaguar #wdmusic #bigsby

Gotta make time for dat part two. Tone variation.

Starting my next project. Hopefully this one doesn’t take a whole year to finishing the strat did. 

I traded a few guitar pedals for this Fender Modern Player Jaguar. It feels like a mix between a jaguar, jazzmaster, telecaster, and a les Paul. It’s heavy. It’s got p90s. It’s got a tuneomatic bridge. And again, it’s heavy. It sounds woody like a telecaster or strat, but it kinda has unexplainable les Paul qualities. This is a nice project guitar and I think I can make something cool out of it. Otherwise I probably wouldn’t have gone this direction. It was basically free though.

Here’s what will eventually happen… Custom pickguard (which requires some routing on the back side), Lollar P90s, Bigsby B5 via Vibramate mount, vintage style jazzmaster knobs, sand/refinish with nitro lacquer, and possible relicing/aging.

I’ll post updates along the way!

My pedalboard is almost finished! For anyone looking to build their own pedalboard, I used oak for the side of the frame and birch for the top surface. The fabric was $2.50 / yard from Walmart and it works perfectly with Velcro. I added handles and will soon be adding neutrik solderless locking jacks and an AC power inlet to the holes on the side of the board. All of the accessories came from pedalboardshop.com — a great site to find almost any pedalboard accessory you need. The last step is to drill holes in the top surface to run AC adaptors from the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power mounted underneath the frame. I’ve wanted to make my own pedalboard for years. Now I just have to get a slightly better pedal collection going!

It lives. The Tom Delonge strat is long gone. The routing wasn’t as clean as I would have liked… But luckily the pickguard covers everything. A quick setup and this thing makes the list if favorite guitars! @nrwineinger

Remember that strat project I posted about last summer? I finally made some progress. Found some cheap Fender Hot Noiseless pickups and a free pickguard on Craigslist. The last step is to finish the routing underneath the pickguard. Right now it’s routed for a single humbucker in the bridge and one volume knob (this was originally a tom delonge strat I was given by a friend). Tomorrow it will hopefully be routed for three single coils and a 3-way switch. I’m a little nervous to route it as I do not have a routing template… I’m free handing it!  Then, it’s a quick solder job to the output jack/bridge and it should be ready to go. I’ll eventually upgrade the nut & tuners and possibly paint it with a black nitro finish if I feel like going through the process. Next I’ll show you the pedalboard I’m building! #guitars #diy #relic #relicguitars #projectguitars #fender #stratocaster #tomdelonge #nashguitars #nash #vintageguitars #noiselesspickups #guitarprojects

I get to marry this beaut in just 2 months! Amongst all the commotion of caterers, wedding colors, invitations, and all the other details I thought would never be this stressful, I can’t wait to slow down this weekend and remember the most important thing… I simply love every experience I get to share with @amandamarykay . I love her company. I can’t get enough of her. And I’ve never been so excited for a three day weekend of random adventures both wedding and non-wedding related.
