I have been subtly poking at Andrew that I wanted a double cut Les Paul Junior style body made to take a Fender neck for a little while. (Well since I saw he got Junior templates. LOL) It is finally on. I am calling it a Mutt because it is a mix of some of my favorite guitar elements. Here is a crude mock up to get the basic idea. (Color subject to change.)


Mutt by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr

I wanted the double cut shape. I dropped the neck in a bit to help it mount better. Andrew has total control on how the neck will attach. He knows his stuff. This is just a reference of what I am shooting for. I will be using a Japanese Jaguar neck on it, so it will be short scale. Andrew is going to move the bridge to match. It will have two Jaguar pickups, Jaguar bridge, Jaguar tremolo, Telecaster control plate, and an electrostatic cup jack on the side. It will also have a tummy cut and forearm contours.

Method for my madness:
I like Les Paul Juniors... but I hate set necks. You damage your neck and you are f*cked. I also like Japanese Fender necks a lot. I really like contours. I tolerate my tele and Jag-Stang's slab body, but I would rather they be contoured. More comfy to me. I love Jaguars, so a lot of the sound elements are Jaguar. Tele switches are really solid and I think I will wire it like the Marr so that it puts them in series when in the fourth position. I also prefer controls to be metal or pickguard mounted vs body mounted from the back.

There you go. The Mutt. Andrew is going to work on making the body and guard for me and I will do the rest.

Adjusted the tele plate location a bit so the switch would be less in the way.

I know right? An odd combo of stuff, but it kind of seems to fit well together.

It varies. I have got stuff from him for quite a while, so we worked out a deal. Smile

Thanks! It should have all the stuff I tend to use and none of the extra. Smile

Update from Andrew.

andrewdoeshair wrote:
Made the template today. This takes just as long as making the body, itself (after the blank is glued), but it takes 10 times as much brain power. I'm not complaining, any given challenge can be defined as work or fun, all depending on the build it is going into. This one is inspiring, for me, so the challenges are fun. You can see, here, that the whole middle section of the body is identical to the Jag templates I got from Stereordinary. I routed the trem, and drilled all the neck/bridge/trem holes with the Jag template affixed to the Mutt template.


I moved the neck pocket forward enough that the butt of the heel will just touch the straight line of the body. I'm going to make a new pickguard template, to follow the curve of the neck pocket, but today when I found myself trying to justify leaving that area sloppy, by using the old template, I knew it was time to stop building for the day. That's been the greatest thing, since I stopped accepting build requests, I have little enough on my plate that I can just stop when I know I'm not working to my fullest potential. I used to try to push through it, and that was where every one of my blems came from

Fantastic idea, and blinding start by Andrew!
I too feel the love for Gibson stuff, but find the scale too difficult to play with such thick/wide necks..
The neck on my Squier Cyclone in 24.75 is ideal, as it doesnt make me have to stretch my hand to play, and
I find it very similar to my Jagmaster Conversion neck...
That said, a 24" Gibbo-a-like is an ideal mating!
This WILL be fab, i can feel it!..

Thanks! Ditto on Gibson necks. I don't like the radius of those so this will be nice. Smile

A really sweet combo of features, it should really rock Smile . Are you gonna string it with 11s? I use the D'Addario Jazz set on my 24 incher (EXL-1153D), a great feel/sound IMO Wink

Did a new mock up. I am pretty sure I will do a white wash finish. Not sure if white or a black guard would be best. (If Andrew already cut the guard, it will be black.) This is sort of the most current idea of what it will look like.
