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
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 and get one. I've been waiting for one to come up on ebay ever since.
Been a fan of short scale offsets since forever - the quirkier the better; I have a Fender Mustang Pawnshop Special already which is a remarkably versatile animal. I had no instrument with a whammy bar however, which is how this caught my eye. The switches on this 'Mus-uar' feature on/off and phase settings; another excuse I used to justify its purchase. This may well become a project guitar as I'm curious to put single coil and/or humbucker sized P90s in it for something a bit brasher.
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.
