Parry, bud.. just between you and me.. You're a true hero: you've been let down by Fender' stinginess but instead of getting all depressed, you managed to get paid by the Chinese rivals provinding the exact specs. That's a phenomenal revenge, sir ;D

I think it looks cool and totally bonkers.
I like the straight humbucker.
The pickguard looks whack.
Be fun to mod/improve something like this.

The straight humbucker balances it out a little more.. I mean the original Jagstang is kinda ugly.. :ph34r:

100% honest. yeah, the pickguard/control plate is wrong but honestly. it looks like a decent wee project for someone who wants a jagstang without kurts name on it. change the guard, control plate, put a good set of pups in there and you got a decent wee osg thread and hopefully guitar.

I've seen that one a little while ago. Knowing how AliExpress guitar dealers work I suspect it must have been a one-off custom build request, which they then decided to add to their catalog as a new model.

6) the control plate is both off as a shape and it looks like it's just painted on the back;
95% of the offsets I've seen on AliExpress have the same kind of plastic mirror control plates instead of metal ones.
The remaining 5% have pictures of genuine Fenders that they try to pass as pictures of their products.
I humbly apologize for the lack of nicely weathered wooden deck in any of my guitar pictures (vintage floor tiles available on demand).

I dig it. I had a jagstang and this one fixes most of the issues. The body contours are the biggest thing for me. I wonder what the nut width is.

I like that there is a little more space in between the pickguard and the waist (bass side)... Hope im just not seeing things... :unsure:

I'm going to be the impatient child asking "IS IT THERE YET?" until you get it.

I've also just been paid, so it's getting harder and harder to resist...
