I’ve sold my jaguar to fund another jaguar, and my mustang is tore apart right now. When I get them back in order I’ll post a picture :)

Love seeing these! All great! It's good to know that there are other offset fans out there. I have a new addition coming soon too!

The Jaguar has moved on to pay for some recording costs, as it never really had enough jangle for me. I'll definitely fill the Jaguar shaped hole it has left behind at some point.

Not the greatest photos, but they are fresh... took them today. Left to right:
'64 Jaguar sunburst -100% original
'64 Jazzmaster sunburst -replaced nut (I've owned this one for 15 or 16 years now... it's a keeper!)
'64 Jaguar Candy Apple red -repro tremolo arm
'65 Jaguar Olympic white -100%

My favorite look has nearly always been the B&B early CBS deal but this thread is maybe turning me into a bigger fan of pre-65 versions because holy shit they all look beautiful

Those clay dots when they start turning into that vaguely red/orange/beige color are so pretty and the rosewood always looks really deep and almost black.

Lots of beautiful guitars in this thread!
