Model 4 wiring

Hi Rafe, it's a piece of cake. You should have a Jackson JE-1200 mid-boost circuit in which the volume pot is attached. Needs a 9V battery. There are 3 toggle switches one for each pup. The toggle switches are on/on. Each pup needs the hot pickup wire soldered to the outside tip of it's corresponding switch. There is a wire on the JE-1200 that is attached to the center of the 1st switch. Solder a wire from the center of the 1st switch to the center of the other 2 switches. That takes care of the pups. You need to use a stereo output jack because the battery ground wire is attached to the ground of the jack. When a cable is plugged in it makes ground to the battery which powers the JE-1200. The JE-1200 normally is completely wired with volume, tone & mid-boost level pots. I've probably wired & rebuilt 20 Model 4, 5, 6, & 475's. I still have a few JE-1200's here. I have the Jackson tech manual which shows the JE-1200 wiring & 2 pictures of an actual Model 4 wired with the module & switches out of the control cavity. Send me an email & I can send you the info. Dave

Thanks Dave!

Hey Dave, just now saw your response. I actually had a shop overseas build a new replicated JE-1200 and complete wiring with pots and switches. My model 4 was just in poor shape and glad I found this custom replacement. Thanks for your response though. I spent like $450 for a complete electronics set-up utilizing the original pickups :)

Jackson USA made in 1990

Ok, I've got this Jackson USA body and neck..had em forever. They are separated and all the parts have been stolen years ago. I know originally it had a custom paint job, a girl in a bikini laying on the beach..been sanded down since and has a green wood stained face. Anyways, since not having any neck plate with a serial number, all I have to go with are some markings underneath the neck. On the body where the neck goes its stamped USA-8, date written in 10/22/90, also written in pen is H6 ( I believe) and a straight faced smiley dude. At the base of the neck is stamped FUS. Also looks like a signature in black marker under the back tremelo spring plate. Pic links below.
Anyways if there is anything anyone can tell me about this guitar, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, I'd like to know the best way to obtain the correct parts to piece it together.
THX Joe

Re: Jackson USA made in 1990

Ive never seen a "USA" stamped like that on any Jackson/Charvel guitar before. Can you be for certain that the body is an original?

1985 Jackson tele

Does anybody know how many Tele's were made in 1985? Mine (serial# j1267) Black w/white body, Floyd Rose, Ebony fretboard, neck thru body. Just curious.Might sell if right price comes along.

Re: 1985 Jackson tele

as for a USA model, I don't think anyone knows how many teles bodies were made. I can say that by 1985 there weren't a lot of them, maybe 50 or less by that time. There were still being made after that. I have a 1988 lefty tele.
