Cjaguar

Post by Jambles » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:07 pm

HI all. New to offsets, so, have been reading the forum here. Thanks to all for your insights and wisdom. In spite of that I purchased what I have dubbed the Cjaguar(pronounced chaguar). Since the forum seems to be in the summer doldrums at the moment. I offer this up for your viewing pleasure. All comments welcome.

Purchased from Four Corners Guitar on Aliexpress. 25.5 scale, 14" radius, P90 pickups. I could love the mirrored plexiglass if it had been done well and the circuits were anywhere near to original. You know, tacky enough to be cool. But they weren't so that all goes anyway. Came with a TOM bridge. I have already put a roller bridge on. It was a drop in replacement. I shimmed the neck, did a little neck straightening and adjusted the bridge. It plays pretty well now. I like the sound of the P90s. Oh, and the color was advertised as green but is more of a blue which I like too. Let the comments begin.

I've seen these around on the interweb. I used to think the shape was kinda funky but I think if it wasn't called jaguar (and the pickguard was cut a little nicer) it could probably pass as one of those alternative boutique shapes.

I kind of bought it on a whim but am having a lot of fun exploring this side of the guitar spectrum. I have only ever played humbuckers before this. The only part shapewise I am not fond of is the hook in the upper bout. But I can live with that. I picked up standard metal plates to replace the plexiglass. I think I can cover all the routes then cut my own pickguard to fit. For the price it is going to be a fun experiment. Also, thanks for the image hosting link. I should have studied more before cluttering up the forum :'(
