    I started this build about three months ago.... keep in mind this is my 1st build so bare with me....

    Jaguar shaped Body made out of a solid Mahogany Block
    Mighty Mite P Bass Neck with rosewood board
    34" scale 4 String
    Seymour Duncan Basslines Pickups (P/J)
    all the Black hardware came from either Guitarfetish.com or Stewmac

    got some stain on it.... I used Minwax red mahogany and went over it with a ebony stain down the center about 4 inches wide, it's not very noticable but thats what I was shooting for, very subtle....

    Thats as far as I have gotten... I should be done in just a few more days... all of the hardware is black and I'm also painting the headstock and neck black and putting a clear coat over everything this weekend, also going to put a black pickguard and some DR black beauties on it.... I'll post more pics as soon as I get more done....

    The horns appear to be larger than the stock Jaguar shape - I like it!
