The Jag-Stang Registry – Winter 2016 Update

Every so often we like to take a look back at how the Registry has evolved during the previous year or so. And we like to say a big THANK YOU! to all the jag-stang owners out there who have participated by adding their guitar info. It’s been very interesting to get a feel for just how many jag-stangs are out there and where they’ve all ended up.

Below is the summary of data with the changes from the last 14+ months in bold. Some of the interesting changes are: 152 new entries over the last 14 months! That’s about 10 new jag-stangs per month added.

  • Total guitars: 426 (+152 guitars!)
  • Handed – 94.8% right handed – 5.2% left handed (left gained +0.5%)
  • Color – Sonic Blue is the most popular color at 56.1%. (+0.3%)
  • Modifications – around 40.4% of the guitars are listed as modified. (-0.8%)
  • Countries – currently in 39 unique countries with most in the United States at 40.4%. (+4 new countries)
  • Oldest – T016701 [Made In Japan] (no change)
  • Newest – R075779 [Crafted In Japan] – This is the only CIJ we’ve seen with a leading ‘R07’ serial number. (new entry)

We plan to continue adding features and tweaks to The Registry and welcome input from everyone on desired features. If you haven’t yet added your jag-stang click the link below to get started.

Thanks!

Fender Jag-Stang coming back in 2017??

Could the Jag-Stang be coming back in 2017? Maybe to join the new DuoSonics and Mustangs just released by Fender?

A little over a week ago Fender had an event an their new Hollywood location. Some photos came out of that event showing a unique jag-stang. Having black switches, a better fitting pickguard, a new color?, and who knows what else.

Below are a couple of photos showing the new jag-stang. The first photo was posted by otisserie on Instagram and the second photo posted by Fender on Facebook. You really have to zoom in on the Fender event photo and look at the guitars on the back wall near the new duosonics and mustangs. (look for the white-ish jag-stang nearby)

EDIT: Updated to include more photos from Fender Hollywood Grand Opening Event that show the jag-stang.

The Jag-Stang Registry – Summer 2015 Update

Every 6 months or so we like to take a look back at how the Registry has evolved during that time period. And we like to say a big THANK YOU! to all the jag-stang owners out there who have participated by adding their guitar info. It’s been very interesting to get a feel for just how many jag-stangs are out there and where they’ve all ended up.

Below is the summary of data with the changes from the last 6 months in bold. Some of the interesting changes are: +76 new guitars over the last 6 months plus the percentage of left handed models has dropped even lower that before.

  • Total guitars: 274 (+76 guitars!)
  • Handed – 95.3% right handed – 4.7% left handed (left dropped -0.8%)
  • Color – Sonic Blue is the most popular color at 55.8%. (+0.8%)

The Jag-Stang Registry – Where are they now?

We introduced The Jag-Stang Registry nearly 2 years ago as a project to find out how many jag-stangs are still around, the details on them,  and where they’ve ended up. We couldn’t be more happy with everyone’s enthusiasm about the project by adding their guitar info and consider it a great success thanks to you all!

As we close in on 200 jag-stangs added there are some interesting stats to derive from the listings.

  • Handed – 94.5% right handed – 5.5% left handed – There are even fewer left handed models than we thought out there.
  • Color – Sonic Blue is the most popular color at 55%.
  • Modifications – around 40% of the guitars are listed as modified.
  • Countries – owners currently in 31 unique countries with most in the United States at 39%.
  • Oldest – T016701 [Made In Japan]
  • Newest – R010452 [Crafted In Japan] – Also this is the only CIJ we’ve seen with a leading ‘R’ serial number.
  • Auction bot – We continue to collect jag-stang info from ebay and currently have a backlog of 50 or so listings to add in the future. (has added ~ 30 listings thus far)

If you are a current or former jag-stang owner and have not yet adding your listing to The Registry we encourage you to join! If you need any help feel free to get in touch through The Registry Contact Form.

We plan to add more features to The Registry in the future and welcome any input from everyone on desired features.

Thanks!

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!

Another HNB Project: Metallic Green Jag-Stang

Hentai No Baka is at it again with another cool guitar project. He has customized a fiesta red jag-stang into a metallic green jag-stang with additional other changes!

Below is a tiny sampling of the photos he has of the project. Visit the forum thread he has for the project to see a ton of photos and information that he has shared.
