Something does look like a replacement(?) for the discontinued Ron Emory slope-shoulder, but I could be wrong...

That blue Mustang with fixed bridge looks very nice! But I already bought another Squier Jaguar with fixed bridge for only 250 euros new.

Has anyone tried one of the Mustangs yet?

The spec is a bit vague, is this true short scale, or does it use a conversion neck? Worth knowing for future mods.

I picked up a couple of Gibson mini humbuckers and thought this could be the ideal guitar for them, considering 115.

According to Thomann the scale length is 628mm, which is 24.75" (ish).

Not sure if that's definitely correct though as most places don't have the full specs.

And Anderton's says they're alder, while most sites say basswood.

I have ordered one from Anderton's that is arriving tomorrow apparently, so I shall get the ol' measuring stick out and give it a measure. If it's not 24" I may send it back as I'm hoping to tinker a little with this guitar and slap on a '65 mustang neck I have.


My plan is to route out the guitar for a jag trem and bridge. Even if the guitar isn't true 24", will it be fine for me to route the body as if it is and then use my 24" neck?


Found this too:

Checked around a number of other websites and a couple of others (Gear4Music, Coda Music) are saying it's 24.75".

Will be interesting to hear what it actually is when you get yours.

Thanks, I'll check the video later.

My thoughts exactly on dropping a 65 neck on there. It may not need an upgrade for all I know but the 65 is may favourite all time neck, so the option would be nice.

24.75" is Gibson scale, WTF?!

They had Affinity Cyclones a couple of years back, I can see that they are using the same templates(or just CNC setups) to make the same necks for this guitar
Apparently they don't want a competition with these new Mex hardtail Mustangs.

Also, Mustang body is too thin to put a Jag tremolo

I could be wrong but mustangs are 1 1/2" thick and the route for the trem wants to be 1 3/8", so I should have 1/8" or 3mm to play with. If not I may just go through and put a plate on the back or sumthin.

Looking at the pickguard and bridge pickup there may not be enough room to move the bridge forward 3/4" to accommodate my '65 neck... it is arriving tomorrow with UPS so I shall see then!

If anyone wants to know anything about it let me know and I'll dish out the details Smile

Which also reminds me...I'm curious if Bilinda's custom jobbie was made from Fender-sanctioned parts.

My brat has a mustang thickness body and a jag trem at official depth. It's routed very thin only in a small spot where the spring sits which I did myself because addaminsane advised not to at first - 3mm is crazy and I might paint some epoxy or something over the spot to strengthen it. Also you wouldn't technically need to have the jag trem at official depth, it'd still work well.

I always thought Belinda 's looked a little thicker than a standard Mustang (could be wrong), though, and a bit of a bodge job. Not really very keen on how it came together.

I've read somewhere a guy complaining that he had unusually thin body on his Jaguar. It was 42mm and the bottom of the tremolo routing was frighteningly thin.

They should make a Les Paul special with P90s, proper roller bridge tune-o-matic and Jag tremolo

I'm actually worried I'll let someone play it some day and they'll wig out on the trem instead ofmy usual shoegazey or subtle vintage stuff and it'll be the end of it

If they wreck it, you will clean the edges of the hole and put some cool shaped plate upon it with vent-slits for vibes

Just had a quick play on the Bullet Mustang. First thoughts are; it is really light, the fretboard is very flat, fit and finish is fine, toploading bridge is an interesting surprise.

It feels good to play. I can't help but compare it to my first electric, an affinity strat. The minimal varnish on the neck feels like an oiled snooker cue, not the most amazing feeling neck but totally ok. No sharp fret ends, as much buzz as you'd expect from 9s on the short scale length, and the plastic dots are slightly yellow.

I measured from nut to string saddle and it was bang on 24". Unsure how to tell if it is a conversion neck, but I think the length of the first fret is larger than on my true 24" Jaguar, but I would have to check to be sure.

Plugged in it is very loud, and the humbuckers, again, are totally ok. This is my only humbucker guitar and I am biased towards single coils, but the middle position sounds very useable, while the bridge and neck don't seem to have much spark to them.

For 115 I am honestly chuffed with how good the guitar is. If needed I could take this out with me for a month or so of gigs and would have no worries about it packing in on me.

Thanks for your thoughts chap.

Very tempted...
