Ryan Jarman's "Mu-uar" combined Ryan's favorites offset guitars model that based from Fender Mustang and Fender Jaguar body shape, looks like an opposite model from Kurt Cobain's signature guitar, Fender Jag Stang. His signature guitar included Duncan Designed single-coil Jaguar® neck pickup and an output humbucking bridge pickup, blended with master volume and tone controls along with phase and on/off switches for each pickup, and a toggle killswitch. A vintage-style Jazzmaster bridge, large ‘60s-style headstock and metal control plate offer vintage looks and practical usage. Holy guitar!more
i'm really glad i got one, it was the last available in germany. only 152 were produced. build-wise on par with the j.mascis jazzmaster. the stock humbucker is not good, and the bridge is a TOM, which isn't exactly the best for the jazzmaster tremolo. otherwise a fun little shortscale guitar in an awesome finish.
Seems this guitar was available for just a few months in 2016, supposedly only 150 or so were made and they were all gone before I'd umm'd and ahh'd enough to make up my mind to get one. I waited a long while for one to come up on ebay; I've since seen them go for twice the original price but fortunately I got lucky!
The stock humbucker is a so-so Fender MP-H1F Modern Player Telecaster humbucker bridge pickup. It may well become a project guitar as I'm curious to put a P90 in it for something a bit brasher or perhaps some lipsticks for the bling! I had no instrument with a whammy bar which is how this caught my eye. The switches on this 'Mus-uar' also feature on/off and phase settings; another excuse I used to justify getting it.
Been a fan of short scale offsets since forever. This is a reverse take on the old Jag-stang mongrel body shape mashup; the way it should've been done! It looks and plays gorgeous, with oodles of sustain compared to my Pawn Shop series Mustang; it's significantly weightier too.
