So I am planning a bass build. No details yet but a lot of you will like it and some won't. Just want to know.. Before I purchase a neck... Does anyone know if a Squier jaguar neck is the same length neck as a fender mustang neck? Also if available.. Could I have neck pocket dimensions? Another thing.. I was told a mustang bass is the exact same shape and size as a mustang guitar body. Is that true? Lastly. Does anyone have a mustang bass Pickguard template or Pickguard they could send my way? Thanks.

im almost 100% positive that the mustang guitar/bass bodies are not the same, but really similier, im not of the difference, and i don't have either one in front of meto really compare.
I believe the jaguar bass necks are a full scale bass neck. once again, i could be wrong, im pretty far removed from the current line of fender stuff and even more so from the bass stuff. imo, if its not a jazz bass or an ebo it can get fuct.

Ok I found a template for the pickguard here: http://www.shortscale.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=823219&sid=32d74b77ecb0649e737596de60bde9c8 I just printed out the picture of a mustang bass's pickguard and printed it to scale. Came out great. Also found out that the neck pocket rout is 4 and a quarter inches long. The body shape/sizes match up pretty good. Good enough for me at least.

NOW.... Does anyone know if a squier jaguar neck is the same size as a fender mustang neck?????

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. There's both a 34" scale and a shortscale version of the Squier Jaguar bass. Make sure you know which one you're buying the neck off of. The short scale one will be the same length as a Mustang bass neck, although I don't know for sure where the neck heel will be the same width.

That's ok. I'm not worried about width. What is mustang scale 30"?

Yeah, Mustang basses are 30". As are the Squier Jaguar Bass Special SSs.

Ok. I'm gonna build a Jag-Stang bass. I always loved the photoshop mockup of it and I have been interested in bass recently and was thinking of buying a mustang bass but I said fuck it, I never made a bass and I love that Jag-Stang bass mockup. I can't believe no one made it yet. I guess it is my duty to haha. So I am going to try and get it as close to that as possible. I am thinking of using a squier jaguar bass neck or if I can't use one of them, then a musicmaster bass neck. I printed out a scaled mustang bass pickguard picture and cut it out. It seems to be right. I placed that on my Jag-Stang template (tracing of my jag-stang) and it is looking hot. I am just gonna use a standard jag-stang body shape, not warping or resizing. Fuck that. So I traced the pickguard and i placed it 4 and a quarter inches from the end of the neck pocket. It cuts really close at the bottom horn there if you can see it. By the neck. So I reshaped it a bit. Looks good to me. I am not looking for exact specs. Just as close as possible. Then I just scaled up more of the mustang bass and placed the control plate, pickups, and bridge. I added the jaguar plate as well but moved it a little. In the photoshop picture they moved it over an existing screw so I just moved it a tad. Next step is to find my neck and send it along with the body/pickguard template to cooterfinger to make the body and pickguard. I'm pretty excited. This is gonna be a long build probably do to my money being tight but it will be awesome. Oh.. Going with Fiesta red and white pearl by the way! Some pics of the photoshop and the template I have done so far. Oh. And I will have HNB make me another kick ass waterslide!

I can't tell whether that's candy tangerine or fiesta red in the first couple of pics, but if it's open to debate, it needs to be orange. The design is definitely growing on me, though. I think you're on to something.

I always planned to build one eventually but looks like you'll get their first ya bastard Wink really looking toward to seeing this, I think it looks superb as a bass. Haters can suck my taint.

Yes! Fucking do it, the mock up looks great. Love the pickups, it all seems to fit really well.
Look forward to this one.

I'd say it looks better as a bass than a guitar

It absolutely looks better as a bass, and from the looks of that pickup config it's going to sound better too.

lol @ "bass line" on the template. The classic typo in reverse.

Ugh. Never mind, I get it now. I thought you were marking the bass neck pocket base line. It is I who am the suck!

Haha. Well I was marking it bass line because that's where the bass neck would end on it for a bass template but then I just used the whole template as a bass template.

I'm gonna use concentric jazz bass knobs/pots I think and not use the jaguar plate.
