    Hey everyone, not a Tele, but a related cousin, so I'll post it on here for you all. I've been wanting a short scale to go with my Teles and Strats for awhile now, but didn't want a straight up Jaguar. Thought about a Warmoth build, but too expensive. Enter the Jagmaster- alder body, maple neck, AND equipped with my favorite setup of two 'buckers, a 3-way switch, and a single volume and tone knob.

    So, I found this sucker in a pawn shop for $50, pretty beat up and grungy. I took it all apart, filled all the body dings with super glue, scuff sanded, and refinished with Duplicolor Avignon Blue and clear coat.

    I love my Ibanez JS1200 neck, so I sanded down the neck of my Jagmaster to match. Now slick as can be. Also painted the headstock to match. Oiled down the rosewood really nice with mineral oil.

    Got a set of Bootstrap Skookum P90s (nickel silver), chrome knobs and a chrome switch tip. Replace all the pots, switch, and jack with quality parts.

    Now, this thing totally rocks! Plays like a dream, and the P90s are amazing (just might be a new favorite). All for around $200 total.

    Played last night for a few hours with my band mates and absolutely LOVE this guitar. These P90s are fantastic- very chimey and articulate, but with bite. Only played clean through my 5e3 with my 'clean' pedals (reverb, delay, chorus, and a bit of phaser), and I couldn't be happier. The bridge pup reminds me of a Tele twang, and the neck pup is very smooth.
