  1. So I completed this. Here's a link to the build. Post pictures if you would like. http://shortscale.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47162 Untitled by punkacc9, on Flickr
  2. jag-stang mashup by punkacc9, on Flickr
  3. Jag-Stang 2.0 by punkacc9, on Flickr The Jag-Stang 2.0 is here! It is based off of Kurdts original design with his mustang configuration and a toggle instead of the phase switches like his Jaguar. UPDATE: The new Kurt Cobain Mustang pickguard and vibrato/bridge edited. Jag-Stang 2.0 DONE by punkacc9, on Flickr Not really.. It was fun to photoshop though. I found a warmoth made body on ebay the other day the same as this body and it made me want to build one. So contacted Tim from TK Customs about making me the body and he can so i photo shopped this out of my Jagblaster design. I'll just be doing a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and a Fender Texas special in the neck and a toggle. Standard mustang vibrato and bridge. I may swap it out later for a dynamic bridge. But yeah.. It is simple and my favorite combination of electronics. I did the same thing with my Musicmaster I just built. I hope to have this turn out like the picture except it will have a Mustang neck or a Jaguar neck.

  4. So if anyone is wondering how the Marauder is... It's beautiful. I pre ordered mine and got it as soon as it was shipped out from Fender. The looks are absolutely gorgeous. It plays really nice, the neck reminds me of the classic player jazzmaster neck. The neck pickup is the same as the modern player jazz. But... now the bridge pickup is pretty sweet. You can get a lot of different sounds from it. (three blade single coils in one pickup) I bought the lake placid blue one. The color is so nice with the white pearl pickguard and back plate. The overall design is neat and finally new. Fender has finally created a new shape/guitar. Yeah I know it was based off the 60's prototype but only the idea of it. There is no comparison between the 2011 marauder and the original prototype. Maybe the shape a little and the name of course but even the shape is a lot off from the original. Anyway... It's cool and different. I hope that was a good insight of the new guitar. (:
  5. So aftermarket pickguards and originals fit the warmoth body's?
  6. Yeah he had about three of them necks this summer. And yep timbo posts the mustang body's every now and then. You just gotta contact him and tell him you want one. They're American mustangs too. Nice guy as well.
  7. Yeah I'm not totally Shute of the color definitely yet either. It won't be that neon yellow like the picture. I'm going for a color like the yellow cyclones. That or maybe white. It's got to go with the all black pickguard and electronics. I'm a big fan of the glossy walnut stain mustangs like that.
  8. mustang + jag-stang = by punkacc9, on Flickr Update! I took and traced my 69 reissue mustang and my first issue jag-stang then stacked the drawings on top of each other. Then i morphed them together and traced it. template by punkacc9, on Flickr I just had a custom pickguard made for me for it. Black/White/Black with a humbucker rout in the bridge and a single coil in the neck. I decided not to have any phase switch routs in it because im gonna drill a toggle in the lower horn like a duosonic. Pickguard! by punkacc9, on Flickr The neck I'm going with is a a Jaguar neck off of one of the brand new Squiers. I gt it on ebay for $100.00 brand new and its 24 inch so i thought.. Hey, it's cheap. Why not? Maybe I'll replace it with a Fender neck later down the road. What do you guys think about for color? I was thinking Grafitti Yellow with black comp stripes. The pickups will be a seymour duncan JB and a Fender reissue mustang in the neck, both black. I have all the parts now but not the body. I'm having a company in CO build me the body with my template and their American mustang template. I sent out the template to them today so I just got to wait on that. I decided to go with alder wood and a 1 3/4 inch body thickness like the jag-stang. I figured that it would look a bit weird thinner because of it being larger like the jag-stang. Heres a mock up of it with the parts.. mck up 2 by punkacc9, on Flickr template with parts (mock up) by punkacc9, on Flickr Here's the image i photoshopped of one when i first came up with the idea.

  9. nope. its gonna have mustang horns, a humbucker, a single coil and a toggle with a jagstang butt
  10. Hey guys I just though I should share with you what I've been up to with my latest projects. Im building a vintage 1966 mustang. I refinished it in Daphne blue and just need to finish up the clear coat. Then rebuild it with parts off eBay lol. I'm also building two other mustangs. I have no idea what I'm gonna do yet but was thinking a toggle switch and some cool mods. Give me som suggestions. But anyway I found a great new guitar company on ebay that are making mustang and jazzy body's that are to fender American specs and they are the same quality or better then warmoth. But it gets better. You can chose between two piece alder or two piece ash and the price is only $99.00 with FREE shipping! I just got my body today and it is absolutely beautiful and very well made and to specs. Now for the neck, I'm sure everyone knows about the new squire jaguar necks and that they are 24" scale (same as mustang) and I hope everyone knows how amazing of quality they are! Well they are only going for $99.00 as well on eBay and if you wanted to you could just sand off squire and put a fender water logo on and mustang. But you now have a mustang body and a neck for $200.00 and it fits all American fender parts and it's not just a spin on a mustang like warmth is and you can only use they're warmth pick guards. These eBay sellers are.. Body's.. timbo81 Necks.. reliablefender Just thought I should share this everyone and it's really nice if you want to start a mustang project!
  11. Ok so I just traced one of my jag-stangs and my mustang and then clashed them together meaning it's a mustang body with a super offset butt like the jag-stang. I edited a picture a long time ago and it's on this site somewhere but anyway I will have pictures of the template soon and my progress thru it. Thanks
  12. I can't believe Squier made a Jazzmaster and a Jaguar... When are they going to make a mustang or bronco guitar? Or a cyclone reissue :]
  13. whoa! Ive never seen a warmoth jag-stang look soo good. does it have contours?
  14. Anybody have a white mustang with a white pickguard? i think they look cool. I wanna see a mustang or jagstang in sonic blue with a blue perloid pickguard too. haha
  15. Woah? I thought these were only 12 strings and i didnt know they had that point at the bottem.
  16. I want to see an ALL WHITE JAg-STang haha. Olympic white with a white perloid pickguard. Thatd be cool.
  17. That's what I was thinking. Great stuff, loads of very cool guitars. Looks like you got a nice big house too. Thanks. I love guitars and im a drummer <.< haha. ...no joke though
  18. Its a little well prototype build. I call it the jagcaster. Its a design i came up with mixing a jag and a tele. I photoshopped a pic but my computer got whiped. theres only one picture of it left hanging in my room. haha it looks cool but plays eh. haha. Its not as good as the jag build i have coming along. dont know what im gonna do with it.
  19. That's still a large amount of guitars. yeah true. I have three more that arent in this picture. My v, doublecut tele, and my other jag.
  20. Heres my favorite. My 1970 Twin Reverb silverface with JBL speaker upgrades. Ille take better pictures later if people are interested in more pics of it. My other favorite is my 1990s ultimate chorus. Ultimate Chorus on the left and Reverb on the right.
