    All those switches should give a good variety of sounds. Report back!

    Well the upper bout is standard Jaguar/Jazzmaster: neck pickup and roller volume and tone.

    By the output jack, kill switch or "Labamba switch!"

    Lower with five: on off for each pickup. Strangle switch, phase switch for middle pickup only.

    I love the look of that lower bout switch plate w 10 screws to hold the switches on, and 2 more to mount the plate to the body!

    This looks really interesting - keep us posted - yet another instrument that I know nothing about but spawned by the Jaguar - I swear, the Jags have been major influences on a few others, some not even made by Fender. Thanks for putting this one up!

    This closely matches the original Fender design of the 60s. Should be interesting.. I wonder what the price is though!

    I'm just as curious as you.... after the way Fender designed the circuit for the Jaguar those tonal options were directly lifted by other makers so you know Fender was onto something good. Guild's S200 Thunderbird took its tone and pickup switching directly from the Jaguar.

    I'll bet it will be $1500.00

    I think $1,500 is low. A lot of costs in making this guitar. Figure $2,500.
    I’ve been obsessed with the Marauder for eons, and as much as I think it’s the most hella wicked cool looking guitar ever made (ok, not made), I’ve read from some that have already masterfully replicated it that soundwise, it really didn’t end up being all that unique. I don’t know if I could ever justify the price.

    PS I’ll take it on looks alone!

    So1om, are you into stuff like the DiPinto guitars?

    Let's not forget that Bilt has their near version. I'm not sure on the switching options and it does have different pickups. http://www.biltguitars.com/the-guitars/the-relevator.html

    I do, I just haven't looked at them closely. I played a completely different model over the weekend in Tucson and thought it was ok.

    Like so many guitars and options and configurations; it used to be features and playability. Now because so many meet those needs, colors and appearance can also come into play. The Dipinto was higher on my list before the VM Jaguar came out. Now it's nowhere on my list, if you follow.
