Hi!

The majority of what used to be in the post is bollocks so it's been deleted and replaced with something better written. Essentially what I'm building is a Jazzmaster that looks like a Jaguar, because I prefer the longer JM scale and I'm like a magpie in that I like shiney, shiney chrome things. The rest of this post is from what was originally here since it makes the next couple of posts make sense.

The only factor that's still properly up in the air in the bridge assembly. I rather like the adjustomatic bridges that Fender have been using with a stoptail on the special edition HH jags, and coupled with a vibramate that stoptail could also give me the option of putting on a bigsby if I so pleased. And even if you don't like Bisgbys you have to admit, a jag with a bigsby looks pretty funky:



Ofcourse the other option would be using a mustang bridge and the standard Jazzmaster trem which I also like. Anyway, heres a general mockup I put together for my basic idea a while ago



Input?

If the Humbuckers were Wide Range then the mock-up would just be the Lee Ranaldo "Jazzblaster"
Fender MIM Telecaster (w/SD Little '59)
Boss DS-1
Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff
Digitech EX-7
Marshall Echohead
Fender Pro Junior

Jagmaster man I would love to have this guitar. I've really been GAS'ing for a JAG/Mustang/Jazz.

You just HAVE to put a bigsby on it! Srsly.

I, for one, support this build wholeheartedly.

Congratulations, you found the the jazzmaster that I photoshopped.

The finish isn't decided upon, but I happen to like the Ranaldo Jazzmaster with the anodized pickguard so that's the picture I used for the mockup.

Got my Alder blank from David Dyke about a week ago but uni works getting in the way at the moment, should get started on this later in the week though.



I've managed to get my hands on an Adjustomatic Bridge [7.25" radius Tuneomatic really] And I'm looking at getting an AVRI jazzmaster trem to go with it - The Bigsby is a no-go at the moment. I should get orders in for most of the other parts by the end of the week.

9 months later...

So after realising just how much more complicated a Jaguar is compared to a lot of other guitars I decided to put together a partscaster strat for a little more practice before I fired into this. After a little mishap with clearcoating I've got that curing again, so I brought out my offset stuff because I'd like to start on the Jag whilst I've got momentum and work ethic!

Most folks don't realise that a Jaguar and a Jazzmaster are slightly different body shapes and the neck pockets and bridges aren't in the same spots so you can't just slap some Jag plates on a Jazzy without it look like arse. To avoid said arse-ness I pulled out some plans, drawing tools and a multitude of parts and did a little design work.





I reckon I've got a solid enough placement for the pickguard and parts, so now I can figure out how to route the cavities and make some templates. Yay!

Oh, and ignore the dodgy, quickly scribbled pickup markings. Those aren't being used.

It was put together by a bloke over on TDPRI. Here's a copy of it I've got on my webspace.

I don't know about br00talz, but Jazzmaster trems are floating and there's a good chance that it'll have a 12" neck.

Sounds good so far!
