My humble contributions (crappy cell phone pic):

The all-black one used to be this before I switched out the body with a Warmoth body:

Both of them have the 50th Anniversary stickers. The Sonic Blue with red pickguard is all stock with the exception on the pickguard but it's been in this configuration ever since I bought it new 15 or so years ago. I had them change the pickguard when I bought it. The now-black one I bought on Craigslist last year for $450 and I changed out the humbucker, pots and changed the slide switches to black. This was the first time I did any work on wiring. It was more tedious than expected but not too bad. A few weeks ago I moved everything over to the new Warmoth body. I wanted to go Dakota Red but the black was a showcase body for a good price. I'm really diggin' the black-on-black so far. Reminds me of a few Musicmasters and Mustangs I've seen and loved. I love the Warmoth body. Very comfortable. To be honest, I haven't touched the blue one since I built up the black one.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice! How does the warmoth body compare to the original?

So far I much prefer it. It's more comfortable with the body contours. I believe it's also a little thinner too. I won't be hesitant at all to try another Warmoth. I'll probably build up a Warmoth Mustang at some point.

I agree. I like my Warmoth body more because of the contours. The Jagstang neck is pro though. Great combo. :)

id love to make a warmoth jagstang, but here in uk, i would end up paying a shedload to our lovely government as tax. allparts uk do jag/jazz bodies with only the neck pocket cut, but they are far from cheap (£240). theres nowhere to get mustang bodies or necks, and the only jag neck (almost)allparts do, is a vintage radius RW one.

My Dad was a musician and he passed away in 2010 after a long battle with diabetes. He idolized Kurt Cobain and owned 5 or 6 of these guitars along with a number of other guitars and instruments so I told my sister I wanted this one because it is a lefty and my son is left handed (he wants to play the drums though). Anyway, I thought it would be cool if he could play this someday. If not, I'll probably just sell it. This guitar was from the 1995 run IIRC. It is in near mint condition, one small ding on the body and that's it.
