Our Juggernaut is based around the original 24″ scale design, and made compatible instead with a 25-1/2″ scale neck. These tweaks have effectively unlocked the “Jugular” shape as a versatile platform for all kinds of bridge, pickup and control options in a way that was previously impossible without drastic and irreversible modification to an original instrument. We hope “Jugular” lovers everywhere will appreciate the endless possibilities our solution opens up to design and configure a dream offset instrument that’s a little more unique than your usual offset project.
We have applied our formula of subtle tweaks to the bridge, neck pocket and pickup positions to bring this vintage design into line with the full complement of 25-1/2″ scale-compatible necks without ruining the beautiful, classic lines of the original.
Aside from the neck heel position, the body perimeter is exactly the same shape as our standard Jugular model and features identical smooth, large area body contours. It is designed to be compatible with standard control plates (not included).
You could even use a conversion neck to achieve a 24-3/4″ scale, or even a baritone scale! You can equip the Juggernaut with a pair of JM pickups to make a stylish Platemaster, or let loose your creativity on our full list of pickup and bridge options. We recommend a neck with a fretboard overhang if you want the most authentic look, but it is not strictly necessary (especially if you’re opting for non-standard pickup options).
