That's what the Jag-Stang should have looked like IMO.

I like it. It's basically a Mustang on top (as you're holding it, I mean), Jazzmaster on bottom. I dig the color too, and the matching headstock, and the no-name decal.

Don't like the TOM, but that's the only thing.

I have no idea who this band is, but the guitar's pretty cool.

I totally agree. The body looks much more balanced and not like some strange, off-the-wall guitar shape.

Mated with this

IMHO it looks like a child's guitar designed by a child

The color of the finish does look a bit teen pop, but the guitar itself is pretty well designed IMO. I don't like the mismatched pickups, and the pickguard should have been more Jag-like at the bridge area, but other than that it looks like it could have been a proper original Fender model.

My sentiments exactly. That pickguard looks strange above & around the bridge,

All in all though, I think it's a pretty cool looking guitar.
You think you can't, you wish you could, I know you can, I wish you would. Slip inside this house as you pass by.

I don't either, but we're all gonna change that bridge pickup anyway, right?

They had me till the lower horn section. To my eye they made the body too wide there, should have continued in at the lower waist another 1/4 or 1/2". Bottom horn looks a little like a tumor

I'd buy this in a flash if it was available in a more appealing color. Darn...

Definitely like the shape and color of the guitar. Would have liked it even more if both pickups were Jag pickups.

I really like the design but I absolutely hate the no model name headstock look.
