Bit pricey but there's a stunning lake placid blue one here in the UK at Wunjo Guitars in London

I've been into wunjos and they don't have the 50th. I think they are using a pic of the 50th with a AV description.

I've emailed them, but they don't seem to register it's the wrong guitar.

I don't get why these didn't have matching headstocks. B&B custom colours with no matching headstock just seems wrong to me.

I may be getting one of these in a trade. Looking for a slightly fatter-sounding alternative to my Marr Jag. How do these pickups sound in comparison? And the the more modern radius allow for easier bends? Thinking of putting in a creamery p90-for-jag and a vintage style neck pup for best of both worlds.

Sorry for the late response and unfortunately I can't help you with the Marr pickup comparison, but yes, the stock pickups are Fatter sounding than traditional jag pickups. I like them fairly well but prefer vintage type sound, so I am installing a set ofAV65 pickups in my 50th ann. Jag. If you get it, I would suggest trying the stockers and your preferred amp EQ first and swap them if you still feel the need.

Having said that, I absolutely love the quality, features, and playability of the 50th ANN Jag. As I said, I usually tend to prefer vintage sound and appointments, but the playability of this one is better than my vintage spec Jag. As far as the closer trem placement, I like it just fine and the better (IMO) playability and sustain. I know purists will say it impairs playing behind the bridge, but that is just not something I do. As far as affecting the "Jag" sound, I really don't think it is a factor any more than several other variables between individual guitars. Again, my opinion but also based on my experience over 50+ years of playing. Interestingly, I noted that the bridge to trem distance on my 50th ANN Jag is essentially the same as on my Gretsch Prolines.....so I don't think there is a right/wrong measurement - different strokes and all that! :)
