An entry-level guitar that plays like a dream and sounds as good as it looks.
Jackson's entry-level JS Series suits the needs of beginning players, and offers the best in materials, workmanship and value. The JS1 features a smaller sized Dinky body made out of Indian cedro wood, an extra narrow bolt-on maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood compound radius fingerboard, reverse headstock, Jackson high-output humbucking pickups, a 2-point fulcrum tremolo bridge and chrome hardware. With its smaller body and narrower neck the JS1 is particularly suited to the younger beginner. Includes Jackson Gig Bag.
Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

I bought this guitar for some hard metal playing with my band and this guitar did not disapiont! Although I have swaped out the original pickups they are very good for originals. overal a very strong guitar. I would recomend it to anyone looking to play hard metal!
ive had this guitar for about 5 months now and at first it was great but after a week or so the tone knob fell off and it gose out of tune very often, and their is a dead spot on the 6th string on the 21 fret, and alot of fret buzz, but it is a very good starter guitar, but i would save up for a king v or somthing
AWESOME GUITAR.Great first guitar, great back up guitar, great gig guitar. It's a great guitar, I only found 1 flaw with it, and I'll get to that in a little bit.Sounds great distorted or clean. When distorted it sounds very sharp/crunchy, great for older metal like thrash and NWOBHM. Plays super fast. Thinnest neck I've played. Thinner than ESP and but not as thing as Ibanez. Which is great, I mean, when I play Ibanez's I feel like if I squeeze the neck too hard, it's going to crumble in my hand, lol.Kinda heavy, but maybe I'm just weak. It's not as heavy as a Les Paul.Stays in tune, when the tremolo is not in use. When you are divebombing, it does out of tune like crazy. My advice is to get a pencil and rub it on the nut or top part of the strings. It will help a little bit.Here's the flaw:The hardware is GNARLY CHEAP!!! I did about 12 divebombs and trem stuff, and the inside of trem was stripped. So I'm out a trem now. :( Also, the volume/tone knobs become VERY loose after a week or so. But other than that, it's an AMAZING guitar. GET ONE!!!
This is a great guitar for the price. I have a 08 model in white with some black tape on the edges for looks. the pros are: great neck and fretboard,SWEET LOOKS the reverse headstock looks amazing. the cons: stock pickups kinda suck but im replacing the bridge with a duncan and moving the bridge pup to neck, it might be just mine but the tone knob fell off but that's just a simple fix. the whammy bar if you at all besides a minor vibarto it will jump up half step in tuning but that seemed to work it self out after oneday i just went crazy with it. its the best guitar out of the four i have. its a must buy
