    A very brief period of GAS for an offset lead me to the brink of trading some gear to get a Johnny Marr Jag.

    Fast forward 15 hours, a trade later.. and here is my new CS Light Closet Classic 64' Jaguar in Firemist Silver.

    I love it, but then... I do love them all at the start. :D

    Shorter scale guitars intrigue me.
    Congratulations on your new axe!

    The scale is great.. and it really isn't making lead stuff or chords any more difficult. Feels really comfortable.

    Thank you all.

    I'm about to dive headlong into the Bermuda Triangle of Offset set-ups.

    The tuning stability is.... errr.. unstable. It has the driest fretboard I've ever seen. It looks like it's barely ever been played, and over time everythings gone out of whack. I also want to move it from 10s to 11s.

    I absolutely love the rhythm circuit on this. It sounds amazing (even out of tune).
