hi guys,

i have a question. I want to custom build a kurt cobain jaguar. I need help with somethings.
Replacing the pickups - two single for two humbuckers. Kurt uses Dimarzio superdistortion and PAF. I want to know this - are those humbuckers white or creamy? I just want to be 100perc sure, i try to post a pics, cos i think im like color blind in this case. - problem solved
Next thing - Gotoh TOM bridge - i want to buy one BUT - gotoh offers one with small posts and one with larges. Those small ones are 4mm in diameter those large ones 11mm. Those holes on my jaguar are 8mm. So now wot a fak. Im thinking about buying those large ones and extend those smaler holes on the guitar so it will fit. What do you think?

get a 66. That way its not completely like Kurts. It still has a bit of your originality in it ya know? like its cool to have Sig models. but have em customized somehow so a bit of yourself is in them. I dunno I like having my own style.

I find that I feel the same about women who play bass as I think of immigrants in America.

I respect them for finding a place in society under a lot of ridicule, but I have an odd paranoia that they are going to steal my job.

No, actually, he didin't. He wasn't pleased about JagStangs quality, he used mostly Fender Stratocasters and Jaguars.

I hate to say it, but chances are the only thing good about that amp is the fact that the name looks a lot like the word "laser"...

Guys,
what Kurt played doesnt matter. You can check here what Kurt played http://www.kurtsequipment.com/.
Most important right now is what colour are those humbuckers. I have pics in my profile. They look like cream but hell maybe theyre white...
What do ya think

If you do it exactly like Cobain's and have a TOM instead of the stock bridge, then you want the regular spaced pickup and not F-spaced, also you want PAF PRO.

Guys new question,
who know the answer and helps me solve my next problem.
Bridge - on that reissue mustang is pritty shit.y as on every reissue jaguar to make it look like kurts i need a gotoh TOM bridge. BUT. The thing is that they offer TOM bridge with small posts and large ones.
Small ones has posts 4mm in diameter, large ones 11mm in diameter. Those bridge holes on jaguar are 8mm in diameter.
which ones do you think will be better?

Cream looks about right. not only that but the cream would give it that "aged-white" look, almost as if it were and older guitar you were playing anyway.
