At least the stock bridge didn't get raped. EMGs - so not quite a 'Plus' though :) Would still actually play that and not be immediately compelled to swap things around- then again I already own a traditional Jaguar.

ever leave a chocolate bar in your back pocket on a hot day and forget about it then you take it out and it's all melted and lumpy?
This one is the worst thing I have ever seen. I mean, we had a lot of strange mods in this thread but this one is just plain stupid. I can't even tell what the "mod" on the upper horn is for.
I could live with the changes made to the electronics, with the new fret wire, the Schaller tuners - if that makes the instrument "playable", why not? But the body modifications... :-X :k

Here's another one of these monstrosities - the first offset one I've seen though.
It's just an Affinity Jazzmaster, so it's no real loss. But still, WHY? And does he really think it's worth $850 now?

i actually like the affinity jazzmasters. would i pay $850 for one? hell no. it's still a squier and you can still get one for £160. plus why would you take one of the most comfortable body shapes and do this shit?

Plus, I don't think he even upgraded the electronics or hardware.
I think these are just meant as decoration for the walls of shitty American restaurants where the servers wear bowling shirts and the menu is comprised entirely of fried food.

Someone wants 8000 € for this butchered 1962 JM, with a dead neck pickup. (Apparently belonged to a famous dutch band, but all pictures show a regular sunburst one, so they're probably not responsible for the mess ;D )

Does anyone know what this mod might be? I mean, it seems to be an effect pedal of some sort built into the guitar, but the layout seems to be pretty much the same as on the purple JM that theworkoffire bought and restored and it has me curious. Maybe some shop somewhere offered these mods as standard practice and both these JMs passed through there at some point? Or maybe the same artist owned both these guitars and they just ended up going in separate directions? Or could it have been a mod that some famous player did to his or her guitar and others ended up aping?

Let's get our shit together and become a band! Or maybe even musicians!

You know, it's still playable. That's what counts. ;)
