It's a Fender Jaguarillo.

And if I could afford a new monitor, I'd get one. In the meantime, old faithful gets the job done.

I get half credit!

Oh, I understand. I was playing. Do you honestly think I would be considered one of the cool kids? Nah. Not my style.

I used a CRT up until about 4 years ago, when I got a great deal on an LCD. A friend of mine used his CRT (19") up until last year, when I brought a trashed LCD back to life, and now he uses that. Use what works, as long as you can!

None of us are cool kids, J. The cool kids are over there. See? See where I'm pointing? Waaaaay over yonder?

That doesn't mean we're not awesome, though. Probably.

Jokes on them. In 20 years, when they're old and feeble, we'll have nerded up some kind of longevity elixir, and then we'll be stomping their asses at Bridge.

There's some nice desktops in here, I think it's about time I made myself a new one.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Changed mine, felt it needed more awesome, and this may have been the limits my desktop could handle:

Me being me, I had to go right off and search to figure out what kind of guitar that was, rather than simply scrolling down. Not quite a Jaguar, but not a Jazzmaster either, hmmm...

Another popular hybrid is the Telemaster (or Jazzcaster, depending on who you ask). Fender only ever made one run of them as a Custom Shop thing, but a few companies copied the style. Like this. It's also a body option at online guitar builders like Warmoth.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

I couldn't keep my previous desktop for two reasons:

(A) Having Freddie Mercury blast out of an atomic mushroom cloud carrying a unicorn was too awesome to behold.

(B) The white of the image was starting to burn.

So, here's a new desktop which should stick with me for a while (I changed my clock, too):

Both of those look like fun. I've been spotting quite a few hybrids in various vids I've looked at recently. Or some hybrids and some very weird Frankenstein assemblages where I can't conclusively identify all of the bits involved. Thurston Moore had a couple of funny ones, and someone posted a clip of some L.A. band I wasn't familiar with and I never did figure out what their guy was playing.

(Also: not a hybrid, but you might find this interesting.)

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

I had a '73 candy apple Jazzmaster when I was a kid. My dad found it at a garage sale for $50. Obviously the seller had no idea what it was worth.

Unfortunately, our house flooded when I was 13 and the poor thing drowned. The neck warped enough that the intonation on the second octave was more or less crap, and, of course, the electronics were all shot. Ultimately, I replaced the electronics with some cheap third-party stuff, replaced the neck with a regular (Mexican) Jag neck, and gave it to a friend for her birthday.

Yep, the Roxy! There are so many signature guitars around these days - and some of the limited run Gibson ones are outrageously priced, too. Funny you should mention Thurston Moore - both he and Lee Ranaldo have their own signature Jazzmasters, as does J. Mascis.

Jag neck on a Jazzmaster body? Different scale lengths, surely?

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Probably. It was 15 years ago now, so I don't remember the specifics. I know it didn't fit without some fiddling. The neck itself was in pretty poor shape. I got it from a local shop owner for cheap because he was probably going to throw it away. But it worked for the most part.

And really, I haven't seen the guitar (or the friend) in nearly as long.
