essentially its a jagmaster body, that was refined to not look lame (read: strat bridge)

it showed up last week actually, but no one was able to grab the post till thursday.
anyways. here are my out of the box pictars

Thatguitar started as DGNR8's, then it was mine, then, oh shit, I forgot the guys name, but it made the rounds at OSG too. I know "Jazzblaster" had it, I htink he did the blue refin and added the trem.

i think it would look amazing with a maple neck, but rosewood shouldn't be too shabby.

i'll see what i can do about a pickguard.
i like the pearloid idea

i'm also wondering about painting the headstock to match.. but i'll need to track down the right blue.

it won't be finished for a while though...
sort of like my other projects

but it will happen in `09.

Nice one. Personally i would go for 500k pots to warm the sound a little, the 1 meg malarky is out of date imo.

jazzblaster on offset knows the exact name, he got the paint at walmart so it should be easy to track down

so i had some spare time over fathers day weekend. and access to a few fun tools that i don't own
so i figured it was time to get this baby done up.

i had to do a bit more routing to the body, as i wanted to use jazzmaster covers over the pickups.
i could talk about ti but instead i'll let the pictures say everything.

the neck didn't go on as smoothly as i wanted, and i'm missing a tuner.. i'll have to remount, fill , redrill and put it back on.
but its good enough for the music i play.

video / audio demo to come.

pics.

If you ever lose your mind and decide to sell this... I want dibs.

I love the current hacked together look of the body. LOVE IT!

so i plugged this into my twin to see what it sounds like, but the pickups are to low to get anything off of them, i scraped a screw driver over them they do work.
so i might put a different neck on it, and see about lowering the bridge.
as there is some room to do that still.

we'll see how it turns out.

i'll keep you posted.

I would paint it white. That's what I plan on doing with my rob(og) custom.

yeah.. i remember reading it years ago.. before i signed up.

but i'm getting to that point.

:p

so anyways, since i converted my telecaster to a shortscale (conversion neck ftw?)
and i love a maple neck...

i sat and looked at this for a while


and then decided fuck it. lets do it.
