i own this guitar and have to say that not only is it a comfortable guitar to play (standing up) but the sound quality is just awesome. i would say that out of my 2 guitars i favor this one more. thanks Jackson
I've owned this guitar for a year and a half so I'm pretty well used to it and it's broken in. It plays great and has amazing tone. The pickups aren't the greatest things ever but they do sound really good. Within the first six months, however, I encountered some problems. The nut broke and it was replaced and due to a poor glue job it slid out of place again but that wasn't the guitar. I've modified mine with Planet Waves Auto Trim Locking Tuning Machines so I rarely have to tune it but the stock tuners were pretty good. The neck is thin and fast but it's top heavy which can be annoying. Also, the input jack is in a stupid place, it should be at the top and nowhere near the bottom wing but with a "bent" end cord it's not as bad. Adjusting the bridge can be annoying but to get that perfect feel it's worth it.
Many people look at you a bit weird when you whip out a Randy Rhoades model Jackson, and then see it has no floyd rose. those people have never experienced a real guitar.i've owned mine since july of 04, and for the price of the guitar, it's a fighter. sit down play is something to get used to. It is very versitle however. the only problem i've had is that one time a wire became loose to the input jack (nothing a quick sauder couldnt solve) after about two years of playing. that and the ends of the wings chip a bit, but i've also had it for 4 years...i HIGHLY recommend this to anyone getting into guitar. it has style,durability, and it demands respect. BUY IT...
This is the fourth guitar that i own, and out of all four, it is my favorite. It has a fast neck with 24 frets. this guitar doesn't have a floyd rose, but it easily competes with the guitars that do. This guitar beats my uncles schecter hands down, and we both play through the same line 6. Buy this guitar!!
This is my sencond guitar, my old one being a crap guitar. The neck is extremely smooth, so it's easy to slide between frets. The 24 frets are extremely accessable, unlike others I've tested. The only thing I don't like about this killer instrument is that it takes forever to get used to sitting down, and the neck is extremely heavy. Other than that, give this baby a try!
Well when you see it on the internet, at such a low price you think, well it can't be that great...Sure it doesn't have a floyd rose, or nice features.. but it sounds great (atleast on my friends line 6 spider amp)
This guitar is great! I have owned for a month, and I love it. This gutar is good for metal and rock, but not so much for lighter styles such as blues or jazz. If you're looking for a shredding metal guitar for a low price, this is one of your best options. If you are reading this review, BUY THIS GUITAR!!!
This is a great guitar for begining it has nice sound and is great for metal. Just be careful the paint chips somewhat easily.
I had a chance to play this beast at guitar center yesterday. When I picked it up, I was pretty suprised about how light it was. I plugged it up to a Marshall JVM and set off playing. I was blown away how good the stock pickups sounded. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't have a floyd rose. The shape of the body was new for me, since I am used to my SG's body. Another thing is that you might want to get an angled cable because the input on this guitar is so close to the center of the V were you put your leg. Overall, this guitar is amazing for the money, but I wish Jackson would put in a floyd rose for like $100 dollars more. It's totally going to be my next buy!
It's a great guitar even for an experience player.It has an amazing tone,pickups are great and perfect for playing any metal or rock type music.Best of all is that it's at an affordable price and worth every penny.I've been playing this guitar for 7 months now and i love it.The only problem is that its hard to sit down and play because of the jack,i recommend a 90 degree angle jack.All together it's the best guitar I've owned and I would never buy another one.
I bought this guitar in intentions to play this guitar on stage and for fun,but when I plugged it in I knew this guitar was way more than I expected.The action is very low great for shredding,the pick ups are surprisingly great,and the paint is good. Is a little top heavy but if your experienced enough with it its no problem. The high frets are a little hard to reach but its all right.the guitar is very comfortable when siting but the input jack is in a bad place ,it digs in your leg but if you're wearing pants it wont bother you that much.I love this guitar and always will.
