Beat me to it! He's prob my fave Jag player. He and Nels are probably tied at the top for me for offset players overall 8)

And Steve Lucas of X ( the Aussie mob), who had a battered old white JM I'm pretty sure belongs to Jeff Fisher, who ended up in the Laughing Clowns eventually.
Wow I did not know that, thank you.

Martin Rotsey from Midnight Oil, & he and Jim Moginie both used vintage offsets in their other band I've forgotten the name of...
"The Break"? Also, Rotsey has what looks like a nice old fiesta red Jag in the video for Back on the Borderline.

Lately, Gemma Thompson of Savages has been pushing all my tone buttons. What she generates with the Duo-Sonic II, Jag, pedals, and the hand-wired AC30 makes my brain happy.

Holy shit! I have a matching Mustang!
My old Duo was that colour combo but the body and guard were greened off/ yellow. :(
I miss that guitar. :'(

Yeah, the Break. That was the group with Brian Ritchie from Violent Femmes on bass wasn't it?

That red Jag of Rotseys shows up in the Oils On The Water show from back in the 80s too. Was up on YT a while ago

When I was first getting into guitar, seeing John Frusciante w/ his Fiesta Red Jaguar got me interested in offset guitars! My fav guitar is the Starcaster, and I first saw Jonny Greenwood playing one. I've recently gotten into Nels Cline.

Coxy from the Fauves used a righty Jaguar, but he's a left-hooker like Mr. Jimi.
If you think that looked weird, Hendrix did it too. With a Jag AND a JM.
I suspect I may be the only other person on this forum who has heard The Fauves. :D I tend to think of Coxy as playing an upside down Les Paul though.

That LP was an Epiphone, but it sounded pretty good.
Well, at least he USED to play a black Epi LP. he may have traded up to a Gibby by now. I dunno
Haven't seen the Fauves in a VERY long time, due to extended bouts of illness.
He looks even weirder with Dr. Phil's Ricky 330 flipped over. :o :D
I met TheFauves way back when G-Man was still playing bass and Terry the current bassist was their sound man.
All good blokes.

A tiny fucking head?
Being well dressed is never any indication of a person's possible inadequacies as a human. Being poorly dressed, however, often is.
