    @verhoevenc, "Model 2"

    "Here's my latest. She's been a long time coming and is the prototype of one of the two shapes I've started my company using. It was called the "Meeting" shape when this whole thing started, but now I'm endearingly referring to her as "Model 2" from here forward. However, as you'll see, this version is short-scale while the production models are long-scale. It's actually a 25.5" fretboard with the first fret removed which makes it 24-1/16" scale. I'd really like to get my hands on an original Jaguar because knowing how Leo thought...I bet they're actually 24-1/16" too!

    "Some of you may recognize her from my 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ywhj0hg8WI' YouTube how-to video.
