This is the best picture I can find of the 70's rock band Bang.

I'm in love with the crunchy sound of the guitar on their first album, and the cool looks of the guitar, but no idea what it is!

Thanks

It kind of looks like a Fender Jaguar with a different pickguard and a Stratocaster neck.

Given that it has a Gibson-style stop bar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge, you may be looking at a Frankenstein that the guitarist (or someone else) built. I don't recall Fender offering a lot of models with that tailpiece and bridge arrangement.

A really common practice for jazz masters is to remove the floating trem and put that style of bridge on. They didn't hold tune vert well so people often did it that way.

Interesting. I didn't know swapping out that tremolo assembly was a common practice. The only other thing about that guitar being a Jazzmaster is the lower horn. In the picture, you can see that it is a short but definite horn, with a cutaway between it and the neck (like a Fender Bronco or a Musicmaster, for instance). The Jazzmasters that I've seen don't have a lower horn. They have more of a curved bump on the bottom bout.

A Fender FrankenMaster?
