One of the best albums ever written. Just sayin’. #music #thrice #awesome
Dustin Kensrue, former lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of Thrice (though Thrice is NOT broken up, but they are on an indefinite hiatus) Talks about the idea behind the single of his Mars Hill worship band’s upcoming EP.
These are the things that get me excited just from reading.
The Jagular is born.
I have commissioned two new guitars which will be my new main guitar and back up. It is a customization/bastardization of the classic Jaguar, and I have thus named it the Jagular. It has the body and control plates of a Jaguar, but is modified to be full fender scale length (25.5 inches) instead of the Jaguar’s usually, and very short 24 inches. Since we play in D standard the majority of the time, the longer scale works better for my situation. The guitar also ditches the notoriously troublesome and unreliable Jag and brings in a standard tune-o-matic. The trem is also ditched, mostly for reliability issues and increased sustain. The wiring on the original Jaguar is, in my opinion, pretty dumb, so I am changing it up, though I am using all the switches to do different things which are cool and make sense. Our sound guy accused me of building these only because they have a lot of switches. He’s maybe partially right. Anyway, I’ll be posting photos of their progress, and more about how it’ll be wired up, etc.
The bodies and one of the necks are coming from the good people at www.warmoth.com If you wanna do a custom build of a guitar, they are the place to buy the parts from. Super quality stuff made up in Washington state. I’ve ordered three bodies from them before now, and they do custom pickguards, routing, anything you can think of.
The guys putting it all together, finishing the bodies and necks, making them look awesome and play even better, are my good friends at www.nashguitars.com I’ve been playing their stuff for a while now, and Teppei’s butterscotch tele is also a Nash.
The photo above is how the guitars arrived at Nash. More to come.
- Excited to work on these Dustin, but you’re going to have to make me a manual for the your custom switches. I will say though, I’m kind of glad I didn’t have to put these two guitars together on tour haha.
Teppei Teranishi, working on what I believe is Thrice’s “The Alchemy Index” concept album. One of my greatest musical role models.
