Joe Pass plays a Jaguar

From The Jazz Guitar Blog here's a video of Joe Pass playing a Fender Jaguar. Apparently he played a Jazzmaster during rehab and this was not long after. It's very unusual to see a Jazz player use a Jaguar (or a Jazzmaster for that matter).

Fender Jaguar Wiring

Here's a diagram of the original wiring for a Fender Jaguar.

Fender Jaguar Wiring Mod

Here's a schematic taken from the forum for rewiring a Jaguar such that you have series/parallel switching and out-of-phase switching using only the three DPDT switches on the lower bout. You can choose to keep the strangle switch or replace it with and out-of-phase switch. The rhythm circuit on the upper bout is not affected. This is a great mod that allows all switching possibilities for two pickups.
