You folk missed my point and and took it as I was advocating the qualities of this guitar which I described as ugly. Oh well, I was not expecting much anyways.

Yeah def, but they could have some sort of switch in the little jaguar, if you poked him in the eye you'd activate the rhythm circuit and spin his tail to control volume or tone, that'd be great.
:D :D :D :D
LMAO! And if you press his gonads it activates the Hi-Cut switch :-[

It would've been genius if he'd put it where the rhythm switch plate was on the horn. Still would've been immature and not to my taste, but genius all the same.

He could also hold the end of the strap in his teeth. OSG needs to do a DONE RIGHT version of this guitar.

Yes it's completely fine, it's obviously been done by a real craftsman. ;D

I particularly like the care and attention he's put in to making sure even though the neck is narrower than when it started, the inlays are still in the centre of the neck. :fp:

Yeah man, so many possible ways to make that little jaguar interesting and interactive and they just put it there for aesthetics only :fp: :fp: :fp:

is that, the website of the man who has ruined this (65?) Jaguar, proudly saying 'here is this jaguar I have ruined'?
I kinda feel like, to stay true to our original mission statement, OSG needs to put out a hit on this guy.

That does kind of seem like the logical conclusion.

My personal aversion to Gibson guitars just makes me shrug my shoulders. Tenor guitars, on the other hand, are almost always my "thing". But this handicraft disaster is certainly not playing well... and that is a crime!
