Just bought a used '95 MIJ Jag-Stang which I'm loving. I get it home, plug it in and it's really muddy sounding. I have played it through three different amps with the same muddy sound.

Question is whether since it is an 18 year old guitar if the older electronics could be causing this. Should I think about changing the pots and pups?

sorry if this sounds obvious, but, change the strings??

Have you checked the pickup height yet?

Tone knob function at all? Correct pot values? Anyone been in there recently? (you can tell by a poor solder job inside the control cavity)

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

Until you change your strings it's all just pissing in the wind.

yea sounds like it would be the height of the pickups to me but it could be alot of other things too of course
