I'm Going start by saying that its not the best guitar ever. The stock setup is horrible you get fret buzz right off the bat even with new strings. The Neck is really skinny so don't even think about fitting a locking nut in it, the frets are weird you will definitely have to play this guitar different than other guitars. But other than that is it well built and its pretty high quality guitar probably the highest quality you can get for this price.The Humbuckers Are higher output than most guitars for this price range. And i was impressed with the sound i gotta say. Anyways, I had to spend about 170 dollars to get it running decently.Including some locking tuners if you wanna ever us the whammy bar and play hard with a lot of palm muting.But, I Wouldn't recommend this guitar to anyone unless it is your only choice at the time for your own personal reasons. In which case it would be an okay choice.
honestly this guitar could cost 3x as much and nobody would complain, far from a beginners guitar, just for the simple fact of the cut on the neck..just picked this up today at the local guitar shop for a backup guitar but im actually going to use this as my main axe over my mockingbird. very fast, comfy, perfect fretted neck. it's got some weight but nothing near heavy. also it's perfectly balanced. hot pickups, they sound similar to a low end emg pup, very bright and punchy, not much midrange but not to much lows either, perfect for metal and hard rock. i gave it a 4 on features for the simple fact it's only got 1 vol. and 1 tone. also quality i gave it a 4.5 because the tone knob was loose and also it was not set up at all with tons of fret buzz. buy it, get it set up, u wont regret it.
I bought this guitar for my son about a year ago to start learning guitar on. He had a budget of about and we looked at Ibanez, Fender, Epi, and Jackson guitars. He decided on this one because of the ?Metal? look. Initially the guitar looked to be in good shape. I set it up, as you would expect with a lower end model, and it played great. I agree with Woofwoof420, the pickups aren?t great, but it is a $200 guitar. After a year, problems started to develop. The neck has a slight twist in it now, which I believe is from the uncured wood that they used. I live in a very dry climate and the guitar was built in India. I was able to somewhat straighten it to make it at least playable. The nut also broke on it, which I believe is from the design. There is a lot of tension being put on it from that low-e string and it just pulls on the nut. I think if you had a FR or something with a steel nut, the reverse headstock would be fine. I ended up replacing the nut with a GraphTec nut and put the strings on backwards to relieve some of the tension. So far so good. I am somewhat disappointed with the quality. I had a Charvel back in the 80?s and it was very high quality. I know that the Jackson that is around today is not the Jackson that was around back then, but there should be some more attention to quality if it is going to carry the name.
I have owned this guitar since December and I love it! It has a great sound, easy to play, and a very good feel! Don't look away because it's called JS1 Dinky, its a regular sized guitar... and personally its a great fit for any guitar player plus the price is awesome!
I got this and it needed major setup asap. The truss rod on this axe sucks, it twisted like a spaghetti noodle! As for tone, the pickups are rhythmic diarrhea. I wouldnt buy another if they gave me the money for it! I'm sticking with Fender strats for my death metal needs.
I bought myself this for christmas. when i got it all i needed was a solid light guitar i could take to gigs and not care if it got dinged up (unlike my Les Paul). but when i put new strings on her and set her up she played like a dream. the stock pickups weren't bad at all i was surprisingly pleased with them they screamed. but i wanted a more versatile sound so i put in a JB in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck. now she sounds amazing! i played this with my friend that has an SG and she sounded equally as good (maybe even better). the neck is amazing the satin finish lets you play as fast as you can go. the trem is okay but i blocked it to get a more solid tone. i must have got a gem because this thing is amazing. the thing is with this guitar is put good pickups in her put some good strings on her and she will do anything you want and sound amazing doing it!
