So the the white Jag-Stang I put together with Cooterfinger's help making the body with the design elements I came up with went well. I really enjoy that guitar a ton! ...so much so I wanted to make another one with a little different sound and vibe.

When I put the design together I was thinking of a Tele Plus mixed with a Jag-Stang. String through hardtail bridge, single humbucker setup, full scale neck, but with a Jag-Stang body shape with contours. I love my Tele Plus, but I like the Jag-Stang body shape. (Especially when it is contoured.)

It all turned out great.... so I want another one. This one I want to have some more Telecaster Plus elements to it. I already had a white Lace Sensor neck pickup from a guitar and a red/red humbucker to go with it. I sold the humbucker because it was black and the neck pickup was white. Used the cash to get a white version to match. I also took the neck from the Peavey that I had made in to a sort of tele plus for this project.

So long story short, I am having another body built to match the one I have, but with new electronic elements and a different look. Cooterfinger is taking the year off from projects, so I asked the builder who painted my Jag-Stang body if he would make me one and he was on board. These are the details:

Jag-Stang body with contours and string through bridge.
Single neck and pickup ring mounted humbucker like version 1.0 of mine.
500k volume pot and TBX tone pot with push button kill switch.
Heavy On/On/On Duo style toggle.
Peavey neck that I will make a new decal for that is more similar to a Telecaster Plus decal. Not sure what brand I will use for it yet since it won't have a Fender headstock shape.
Walnut stain finish, red tortoise guard, and a metal humbucker mounting ring. (Similar to an older Jag-Stang I did with a Costello vibe.)
Probably white strat knobs ala Costello. (Truth be told I don't know much about Costello as a musician, but i have a coffee table from when I lived at home that is stained like his Jazzmaster and I just love that look. Just looks so cool to me.)

Scott has been busy already. Here are pics. (He just got the neck I sent him today...)

BTW, this is the other one I did that had a Music Master neck on it. I kind of miss this one in many ways.... I think this new version should be even cooler!

Decal design. A little Radiohead vibe since it is what got me initially in to the tele plus setup. Smile

Sorry I missed your post Austin, he uses Mohawk piano lacquer. Not sure what kind it is but he says it cures fast. Here is the latest pic. He made the guard template (minus the center guard screw he just added in for me) so it should be set to rout soon. Smile

Progress! He cut the tortoise pickguard and did the control routs. It needs contours before staining. Smile As you can see it has a sibling. Smile New thread for that one coming soon.

Dunno. I seemed to have found a shape and setup I really like so now I am trying to use different pickups to get some different sounds. A lace pickup and a JB don't really sound alike to me. I am trying to do different sounding electronics with the same body setup since I like it. Kind of like the people who mod Jazzy's or Mustangs to make the guitar that is comfortable sound the way they want.

Got a progress picture with the brown. I guess it is called Gibson brown or coffee table brown. Smile The flash washed out the grain. It is being sealed now. Hopefully pics with more detail will be done soon. Looks good with the red guard.
