Fran is already doing this, and I'm pretty sure you're just going to waste Aug's time by making him do this.

DON'T DEW IT

Aye, i'm in the slow process of doing something similar.
Only i'm lookin to mix jazzy and jag with strat, once i get the scratchy off Aug i'll post a pic up so you can see how things are looking.

*Edit* Your image is a bit a bit out with the jag trem, it looks much more 'crowded' than that because of the body size. I know because i have physically placed one on the strat to see if it could work.

MNSHO - I would start with something with an off set waist, even a MIM duo or something. You wouldnt have to worry about scale because your putting the bridge and tail wherever you need it.
It just doesn't have the look using a strat body. Or for the cost of that Bullet you could almost have an allparts body. 'course you would still need a neck.

my votes no, but to each his own.

and save yourself some heart-ache and do a mustange trem/bridge. they look almost as sexy as the jags, and they're much easier to deal with, yield better sustain, etc. . .

i say go for it, i was planning on doing something similar, but in a fender copper, either way it should look sharp. also frans probly right about the jag trem crowding it up, it does look super nice, but you may need to settle for a mustang.

Here's a rough example of how the Jag trem will sit on a Strat body;



Where as an offset body like the Jagmaster is more suited to that trem. Imo i think the strat trem on a Jagmaster looks crap;



*Edit* It's worth checking the pics of shadow's wonderful 'Smithmaster' to see just how good the Jag trem works on a Jagmaster body as oppose to the Strat trem.

yeah i dont really care if the jag trem is on or not . i would probbably just put it on for cosmetic reasons only .

with or with out it i would still like to do this project .

if i were to put a mustang bridge on it i wouldent want it th have trem i would want it locked down or smoething . like a hardtail bridge

Save your money. Buy a better strat, like a 60's reissue, and keep your designs on photoshop. We've all done em when we were your age...just because you can mix and match guitars on photoshop doesn't mean it'll make a good guitar if you actually build it.
