Two Tiger Questions

Postby TI4-1009 » Mon Oct 25, 2010 9:20 am

Two Tiger (or Tiger recreation) questions-

With a single coil pickup in the neck position, what is/was the "filler" material that filled in the rest of the humbucker-routed space? Is it wood- cocobolo? Any close-up photos?

Second, is the wood under the brass jackplate routed out so that the jacks go through only the brass (short jacks), or do they pass through wood too (long jacks)?

appears to be wood, and most likely cocobolo.


looks like long jacks with a spacer.
