So i was thinking about making a random new guitar designs thread, maybe as a build ideas thread for the people with the balls and the equipment to do such things.
And that is what i came up with. Skate/Surfcaster body with the ugly top horn fixed, hotrails/JM pickup combo. No guard, maple bound neck, reverse headstock, control plate for easy maintenance.

I have an idea for Jazzmaster / Firebird hybrid. From the jazzmaster, I would use the body, the trem and only keep the routes on the side of the body for the toggle switch and tone/volume controls. It would have a side input jack. For the neck, it would have a reverse jazzmaster neck (left jazzmaster neck?). The body would be routed for 3 firebird pickups. The wiring would be a typical strat with a master volume, master tone and blend knob (to allow for neck +bridge pickup options. As for pickguard, it would be a split pickgaurd like this:

strat pickups and scale length
jazzy trem
bronco body and guard
flat and shallow ibanez shred neck with reverse headstock
hagstrom-esque colour scheme

only difference is it now has white witch hats on it

I'd like a 24 fret SG, blocked neck, vintage sunburst or two tone fireburst finish, but not painted black on the back and neck like Gibson usually does, instead I'd like it natural wood on the back and neck like a Firebird. Three pickups either three mini-humbuckers or two mini's and one PAF at the bridge. White batwing pickguard. The usual control setup with maybe a push-pull knob for coil splitting.

Unfortunately my tastes are limited to vintage stock stuff. A sig model for me at this point would probably be a vintage correct jazzmaster or a silvertone 1448.
The only "daring" mod on my jazzmaster is a mastery bridge. I'm boring.

George's bratocaster is tight though.

Edit: actually now that I think of it a silvertone 1448 with a bridge pickup would be so sweet. Not like a 1449 though, needs to keep that short scale and small neck.

Jaguar neck scale and body shape, with a Jazzmaster neck pickup and Telecaster bridge pickup and ashtray.

Jag/JM vibrato with Staytrem bridge.

Vintage-style frets, radius and tuners.

One volume pot (500k), 3-way toggle, strangle switch and series/parallel switch. No rhythm circuit.

HEAVEN

Someone build me this please.

The OP's design is pretty close to what I want:

-Jaguar/Jagmaster body routed for Jazzmaster pickups
-No rhythm circuit or switches: two knobs and a three way toggle
-Musicmaster/Duo hardtail bridge
-24" inch neck (Jag-Stang neck)

A hardtail shortscale with Jazzmaster pickups. Why has no one done this?

Plopswagon's hardtail Jazzmaster is pretty damn close as well.

yeah, I totally agree. I've probably seen it before, but no specific memory. I do remember hearing it when George made some recordings a while back... starting up a new band and all. Sounded amazing!

George, whatever happened with the band?
