How do you like your vibrato? I used to have a Bigsby with Vibramate on mine but it never returned to pitch (tried everything and even had a couple of luthiers try to make it return to pitch). So I took it off. Also finding strings long enough was a PITA.

Mine is upgraded with Collar Firebird pickups, Bourns potentiometers, and I took off the banjo tuners and put on Steinnberger machine heads (it stays in tune perfectly now!).

I had never imagined using a Firebird as a Surf guitar, but upon reflection, I’d wager that it would sound great.

When Surf Guitar is outlawed only outlaws will play Surf Guitar.

We still favor our Jaguars over any other guitar when playing surf music...

Is it common to have fret buzz from Squier Jags right out of the box? I keep hearing that the Jag is designed to use heavier strings and once you put heavier strings on it it will fix the issue. Is that correct

It didn’t fix everything on mine, but it does help. The higher tension of flat wounds in general will do wonders. I also ended up having to shim the neck and flip the screws on the trem plate.
