I'd say the outer green line looks just right if you're gonna change it at all. As is it looks fine too, it reminds me a bit of the big butt on the Vox Tempest I used to have.

Decided on this shape. Best compromise I find.

Decided not to tame the butt. Just something about it.

Mock up:



Haven't completely decided on color either. I like the sonic blue w/ pearl guard but I feel like I would be using tort with another color...

I initially thought no, but agree with Nick. Do with that what you will.

If shortscale was a movie, shaguar would be Andrew McCarthy and that guitar would be Jonathan Silverman. Kurt Cobain would be terry kaiser. And not even the first one. This thread would be the sequel

I think the butt only seems to look a little long, but only if you look at it in a vertical position( like in your photo)..

does it have a standard jag horn? you may have to shorten that , too , if you cutttt that buttt..

you could end with a somewhat (mirrored) Super-Sonic form..

cheers

I cut the butt on my template but I ended up not liking it. So I reverted to the big ass butt. I needed to make a new template because I felt it just looked wrong.

Yes its a standard Jag horn. This is just a template I drew up from those "Jag-Stang Done Right" shapes.
