This is my custom partscaster jaguar...still unfinished(due to budget constraints) and been building this for 2 years already. I have completely gathered all the parts for this project so I'll just have to take these to a local luthier for assembling and finishing. I got most of these from ebay so I had to painstakingly bid on each item and grabbed on the cheapest deals.

1.) this is the design i have in mind


2.) the parts:

a.) the body - Japanese


b.) the neck - Mexican




c.) the pickups - Semour Duncan quarter pounds (sjag-3 A & B) - for higher output. i have also have the pickup covers for the these(although not recommended by SD)...i have two options: chrome-y or hole-less


d.) set of brass shielding to minimize feedback

i.) mute plate, tremolo


j.) the wronski plate(for the tele switch) - same idea as the johnny marr telecaster switch but with less modification on the body. the problem is solved due to the inclined switch hole and the good side of this is you can still restore it to the conventional lower control switch configuration. this plate is courtesy of Stereordinary

...and some blacktop witch hat knobs


k.) paint - sherwood green nitro


Hopefully i can finish this project within this year and show you guys the finished product.

finally got my custom jaguar:



The custom color's quite tricky. Originally it was intended to be dark sherwood green but it ended up being sherwood green metallic / ocean turquoise metallic. The color changes depending on the lighting & angle of view. At certain points it looks green, blue, aquamarine and even inca silver.



everything's perfect except for one thing - the pickguard won't fit!!! (kids beware of Eden)

Can I get your opinion on this?

I'm planning on changing it with a custom pickguard w/ these color options:
1.) black - the chrome plates and PUP covers will be emphasized

2.) mint- classic look (strat captures actual color)

3.) gold - w/ Deimel color contrast and appeal

there's also a part of me that wants to keep it as it is

I made a decision to use what I have right  now. I can always upgrade in the future. Since the jag has all those modern spec. upgrades, I think it's just proper to have a modern look:
