The guitarist from Smashmouth had a signature model for that one year they were really popular. It was essentially a Jaguar with a maple board. I don't have pics, but I know I've seen it around.

Very early prototypes may have had maple boards, ive seen a Jazzmaster with one.

Jazzmasters were available with maple boards with block inlys for awhile.

Anything is possible with the custom shop... but Jaguars did not get maple.

They were never available with a maple neck, not in the the U.S or Europe anyway. Its only prototypes from the 50's that had them.
The one that has been seen might have been modded.

A little money spent at Warmoth will go a long way...
