Nice! Did you have to track down the red switch tip, or did it come with that?

Squier Jaguar HH.

Fiesta red.
I cut the mint pickguard for it today.
It's the real intense mint too, which normally is too much but it works so well here.
Zebra pickups are replaced with White Jagmaster Duncan Design Humbuckers, which are the same really.
I also moved the switch down.

Man... that looks so good...

Thopse are a couple of fantastic guitars. Red is king, here. Good work to you both!

Thank you for your comments. I think tortoiseshell is it. Here are a few photos.

Besides wiring the guitar, the only major task left to do is to complete sanding the neck and apply finish to it.

With all the other stuff on there, that's really cool. Tort is definitely the best look.

This a vertigo? One of my favorite bands Norma Jean had a guitar player that only played one of those. They play heavy music.

Part of the shape (the end of the guitar) is similar to the Vertigo by Fernandes, but there are influences from other guitars as well.

I don't think you could go wrong with either one. Personally, tortoiseshell on a white finish has always been a favorite of mine.

I also favor the tort on white. It's a classy look.
