i can understand why he never was fully satisfied with hte jagstang design and never finished it... as we all know its really not that easy to get it right i feel weve gotten much closer, but are still not quite there yet.. but heres my imprvments on the jagstang 2.0 design not quqite sure if this is it -the final thing. but i think its a nother leap forward towards kurts original goal
did some tweaking on the mustanghorn and i made the hips and butt to be a bit closer to the original unfinished aka fender jagstang design.. but still light years away far from that piece of crap!

... soo what you guys think i present to you the jagstang 3.0 !!

and 3.4! the upperhor also evolving into something closer to the jagstang... im beginning to get a feeling for this and to understand why the jagstang looks like it looks, the parts that make it look so akward is what im working on the most in trieing getting it smother and sleeker looking, making it more of a fully balanced guitar and not just 2 guitars that were sticked together... so what came out was n over interpreteded guitar , he explained what points needed tweaking and what needet to be changed but they over did it and what we got was kinde of a caricature jagstang :fp: , it does look like coming from a cartoon universe could imagine it working fine in a simpsons episode but i real life :bored: ... ssssoooo kurtdzy this maybe closer to what you were aming for? jagstang3.4: Image

Reminds me of the "jag-stangs done right" that a few people have made.

Example:

There's even a similar template kit available that includes the Jag/JM tailpiece:

I think it's closer to what a Jag-Stang should be. :)

well the thing is that i saw those and liked them and liked the idea to make a jagstang that looked good ..but the more i looked at these something still made me feel like its not quite right yet , so thats why i started this thing, though the first ones i posted i must say werent an improvment ... so some progress since the last ones i posted :

here is my 4.0 version of the jagstang

and i came up with this too, the masterstang

That looks beautiful.

Can you point me in the direction of a source for those white dip switches? Can you get white rollers as well?

i dont know what it is but im just really obsessed with this idea of the perfect jags tang (even though i probably wouldn't build it.. oh well-) ..and every once in a while i stat fooling around with this concept like i said all of these jags tang I've seen here are quite good and a definite improvement design wise but not wanting to offend any one i just seem to feel like theres always something off its like its not flowing as a guitar on its own as a whole.. so i did some working on it and this is what i came up with for now . feel like its not perfect yet i really can see why this project never was finished by the late kurt cobain and fender, but i think its another step closer perhaps i dunno you never quite know once one has worked on it for more than a couple of hours then you just need a break to rest your eyes and mind and ..its back to be stored away till one feels the urge to continue .. you know .. so i thought id share it and see what you guys have to say about it .. cheers robb and you have a nice day!

this is how id prefer it with a more pronounced lower wing. gives it more of a harder edge to it..
but since this is about kind of getting it right for kurt too, this is closer i think ->

Image

for refernce "slimmed left wing" Image
