My guess here is it's a partscaster, either that or a circa 1978 Fender Mustang with a 1988 Fender neckplate on it.

I think Jag-Stang necks are indeed unique to Jag-Stangs as far as Fender Japan is concerned. Having said that, they are very old-fashioned Mustang necks... specifically a clone of the A width opti ...

New shots of the Musicmaster - it's been Mustang-Ized in my usual special way, finally, my Jag-Stang has a backup. It's also a test for a passive version of the circuit I use in my Jag-Stang. Guess ...

Well, joined a "90's cover band" at the start of the year and found a hole in my distortion sound. For the longest time, I've used more of a late 70's/early 80's Van-Halen sort of tone, but ...

Well, I've been testing out the Ernie Ball Paradigm .009's on the Jag-Stang and Jaguar for the past few months, looks like they will stand up with the Bullets as far as durability goes. After a day or ...

I always wondered about that dual blade pickup in the original A-2 models, kind of cool it's even shorter as well.

I have the A-2TR model (later Korean made version with a single humbucker and a st ...

I don't hate it but I don't need them and almost have no feeling on them either way.

I always thought putting stickers or a diagram on the guitar that are removable would have been a good idea, I' ...

There's a bit of an easter egg to those old Floyd Rose II Style trems like the one you have (I have one on my Jagmaster and another on my Kramer Striker 100ST) - the knife edges are actually removable ...

One note on the tailpiece method, be very careful on the angle, if you don't go shallow enough you could drill through the body.Yes. That's why you want a really long bit. At least a foot long, so you ...

I'm now thinking this in metallic blue would be the perfect platform to make a backup to my #1 (Jag-Stang) - just buy one of these, a Mustang KC pickguard, slap in a EMG 81 and SA (used of course - so ...

Or don't buy that ugly ass hacked jazzmaster when you could probably find a nice classic one for less.

Does anyone else hate these as much as me? And that fucking bigsby too? They look like shit, ...

I played one, I did not like the neck shape much. If I go dual P-90, I'll just build another Hondo Paul Dean style guitar and put P-90's in it like his prototype guitar had.
