Besides the Jaguar and the Mustang what other 24" scale vintage model Fenders exist?

From the 72 catalogue in the library, the Bronco and Musicmaster which where starter guitars.

Gawd, I want a Duo Sonic!  And more OT, I think the Toronados are 24", but I could be wrong about that.

The first ones were 24.75" like Gibsons. I had one for a few years. I'm not sure about the later ones though.

I'm pretty sure the Toronados and the Cyclone are 24.75"-but wasn't one of the versions of the Squier Jagmaster 24"?

ACtually, there are three versions....

(Vista  Series) 1997-2000 - 24" Scale
(Standard Series) 2001-2005 - 25.5" Scale
(Standard Series) 2005-present - 24" scale minus one fret (21 frets, not 22)

I think the new 24" scale Jagmasters have the same body as the 25.5" scale, and they just cut one fret off the 24" scale neck so it would fit to the 25.5" scale body.

Not too far off, I just picked one of those new 24" scale ones up, and pimped it out a little....

There's something odd-looking about that.
The body looks more exaggerated like a Stagg, but it could just be the picture

I think it's just the picture, as far as I'm aware they're not a million miles away, if not the same as a Jaguar.

I've had a Jagmaster for years and I the body shape seems about the same to me

Actually, the Jagmaster is more of a Jazzmaster body shape, in person it looks a little different, the upper horn is a little more blunt like a Jazzmaster, and the body is a hair wider in some places.  I think the body is Jazzmaster style more than it is Jaguar, also, the countours feel different.

+1.

I stacked it next to my JM and the bodies pretty much lined up.  As much as an uneducated eye under a single stripped 40 watt bulb in a mad scientist lab can see.
I prefer their older stuff.

I think the Strat trem makes the body appear more exaggerated than it really is. And then after being used to looking at Jazzmasters and the stock trem, it compounds that a little more.

I remember about 15 years ago, I think it was Harmony or Hagstrom made a guitar like the Jagmaster. I saw it in a guitar store and should have bought it.
It looked just like the Jagmaster in the pic above.  I dont remember but I think it had a longer scale - not 24.

The Jagmaster is a really nice guitar. They have one at Daddy's Junky Music in Burlington MA now and I would get it, but I am due to receive my Jaguar HH next Friday from American Music Supply. I am excited.
