The Jag-Stang Bass !!?!

Back on April 1 2008 jag-stang.com put up an April Fools joke about Fender introducing a Jag-Stang Bass. Email still comes in to this day with people finding that post and not realizing it was a joke.

But one person took it upon themselves to actually build a “Jag-Stang Bass”. Below are some photos of Austin Coslar’s fantastic jag-stang bass creation.

For even more photos, including build-in-progress updates, see the following thread over on OffsetGuitars:  OSG Jag-Stang Bass Build

Thanks for sharing the photos with us Austin and nicely done!
