One of Oliver Ackermann's personal Jaguars! 

Years of touring with A Place To Bury Strangers has left this instrument extremely well used. It has been smashed on stage many times and reconstructed in vans around the world! The pickups are Tone Of God custom pickups which all sound a bit different and these were some of Oliver's personal favorite. The pickups are wired directly to the jacks and all controls are bypassed. The Tremolo arm claw has been glued in and the arm itself stuck in with a piece of gaffers tape to move like maple syrup. The nut has been replaced with a brass special cut for intonation and gives the guitar a super rich sound. Many of the screws have been replaced with drywall screws as well as the tuners with different ones as the originals broke off. The bridge has a floating mute plate for additional noise making and is fitted with a mustang bridge with a custom filed low e-string slot to allow you to punch the guitar and not have the string slip. The body has been cracked in half multiple times and glued back together with Titebond III wood glue. 

Now you may be saying to yourself after reading this description, "Why would I want to buy this heap of junk?", but let me assure you this is a guitar that has been reinforced to be more indestructible and gives a unique sound that you just wont be able to get in a stock Jaguar. This is one of Oliver's most favorite and go-to-guitars and if he were on tour right now, it would probably be on stage with him. Own a piece of rock n' roll history.
