Anyone know where in the heck to get a Jaguar body blank to build from in the UK?

I've always wanted a Jaguar like crazy but given the prices they've gone up to these days I can't afford, so I'm looking into the custom build route (there is a place local to me I can get spraying and such done at).

I can only see Strat/Tele/Occasionally LP bodies in the UK, and even then they're scarce. Where on earth is the UK's warmoth equivalent at?!

Oooh, cheers man.

Worry is that Jaguar kit is only £99 with pickups and all the rest.

I've found a site that does custom orders, I'll contact and ask if they're able to cut a Jaguar body. They sell blank blocks of wood so one can only hope.

It's Guitarbuild.co.uk for the record. Anyone had any experiences?

My searching skills must be hopeless haha, I was looking for one for aaaages the other night, couldn't find a trace.

EDIT: Turned out the Jaguar is more similar to the Jazzmaster than I thought, the neck is the only really noticeable difference. Bodies are more or less the same.

Given the price, with some Duncans in it is this likely to be a nice sounding axe?

I can probably cut you one if you get desperate, price would depend on wood choice, and whether you wanted cavities routed

I really like the sound of P90s, but that is a matter of preference. I would try out the stock pickups before upgrading.


P90s sound nice from what I've heard. Just seems that £135 for a near entire guitar minus finish and a few holes drilled seems too little to be of quality lol.

Sweet, good to know. How much would 3-piece Alder with two humbuckers + routed cavities cost, out of interest? (EDIT: Just to clarify, I mean humbucker cavities )

Hopefully guitarbuild will respond, they seem to have done custom orders before (I found some custom Tele on another forum) so fingers crossed.

If I managed to get hold of one, I will keep you all updated on how the building goes.
