Fender has announced 5 new Jaguar and Jazzmaster models for 2015! Details on each of the 5 new models are below, including links to the official Fender pages. At the very end of the post is a video review of some of the models by Guitarist magazine.
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!
