      Yes, it's a real model. It was designed by Kurt Cobain. I believe his intent was to make a part Mustang, part Jaguar hybrid.

      A lot of folks like them, but personally I think they're ugly as sin. Still, they have some of the sweetest, thinnest necks (in terms of depth) that Fender has ever made. So do most of the 94-95 MIJ Mustangs.

          I think they look cool but I probably wouldn't like how they feel. Aren't they short scale? I don't think Cobain was even that happy with how they turned out.

                I love mine. I've written more tunes on it then all the other guitars I've owned combined.

                  24" scale, 22 fret necks - just like the Mustang, although Mustangs made before the early 70s were also offered with a 22.5" scale, 21 fret neck as an option.

                    thanks for verifying phil, I can't see how anyone would want that atrocity of a design.

                        Interesting. Are MIJ/CIJ Mustang necks from a given year generally the same as a Jaguar neck of the same vintage?

                          I can't say with certainty, but it wouldn't surprise me to learn that they're made from the same neck blanks. The scale length and number of frets is the same. However, it also wouldn't surprise me to learn that they're done differently, or kept separate. While Fender USA used the same necks for Musicmaster IIs, Duo Sonic IIs and Mustangs for several years in the 60s, Jag necks were different, and were stamped with different codes. They'll all still work interchangeably though. You can put a Mustang neck on a Jaguar, or vise versa.

                            Cool. I think I've read in the past that you prefer thin necks, what Fender/Squier short scale neck of recent times is most to your liking?

                              That one. The '94 MIJ Mustang. Too bad the body wood for those years is basswood. But the necks? Fantastic!

                              What I like is a thin C profile. I like standard B width (1 5/8") necks, but I prefer the front to back distance be fairly shallow, and the "shoulders" of the neck to be thinner, as opposed to a U shaped profile.
