I like the split pickguard idea. Warmoth has it and my old JTK2 had that.

Could have been done better here, though.
This is an excellent rectangle

1965 jag! Ummm.... :unsure:

The elephant in the room here is that a sizable percentage of "refin, but otherwise all original!" vintage Fenders (that people pay near-premium prices for) once looked like this.

Probably not jags, I'll allow... but TONS of strats (in particular) ended up with Floyds in the 80s. Mysteriously, all of those guitars seem to have vanished, replaced by "tastefully-aged pro refin in desirable custom color" strats...

Don't forget all the old Gibsons "improved" by the Kahler that used the tailpiece studs!

If that were in Lavender, it'd be soooo hot. But it's pretty cute as is. :shifty:

I like the color. It’s just shoddily done, and it sure as hell isn’t “Burgandy Mist”.

Whatever the hell is going on here, A Fender Marauder's scale length is 25.5 but a Gibson Marauder neck is 24.75 so it'd never intonate properly https://reverb.com/item/22365091-fender ... auder-neck

Haha yeah I don't know what these people are thinking. It looks like the same guitar here:

And you can find a separate posting for the gibson here:

Some people are just really desperate to be "different".

without having an ounce of creativity to pull it off... S'pose it's a tad more creative than the 'revolutionary' mashups of a Fender body design with another Fender's hardware on it, but it's still a pile of crap.

Looks like the neck heel has been routed in a bit so I reckon it probably would intonate.
It's quite a nightmare though.
