Nick had this for sale pretty cheap so I picked it up. Smile I asked Nick to add a bridge pickup to the pickguard so I could put two pickups in it. I also added a switch to do series/parallel. The pickups are Jaguar pickups with the claws removed and Mustang pickup covers. I am tempted to up the pots to 500k to brighten up a bit, but will leave it alone for now. Smile

Just looked at my amp and one of my kiddos must have messed with my knobs. Tone and Mid were at 5 instead of 10. It is bright enough. Very Happy

Yup, super cool shape <3

Like a reverse Jag-Stang with less booty and some Ric 4001 thrown in for good measure

The funky body shape is pretty comfortable standing or sitting. It balances well on the lap and the contour of the body fits nicely. It is almost like a body contour instead of a belly one. LOL

This thing is super cool. Series/parallel was a great idea.
How's the neck?

It is nice. I am guessing it is from a Squier Mustang or Jaguar. (Modified headstock shape and such.)
