OVERVIEW

Searing stage appeal and galactic tone.

Featuring one of the coolest body designs ever, the 2008 Jackson JS30WR Warrior is phenomenally comfortable and well-balanced. A genuine alder electric guitar body with bolt-on maple neck, rosewood fretboard, and string-through body provides maximum resonance to assist the smoking Jackson CVR2 humbuckers.

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 saw an ad on Craigslist for this model and after doing some research found that I could get it for a price that seemed criminal. Seriously, I couldn't pass it up for the price. I expected a beat up and scratched old husk of a knockoff but when the guy pulled this baby out of the trunk, I drooled . I gladly paid the guy his asking price and thanked him. It was in pristine condition with the factory color coded strings still running the length of it. After adding some bright neon green DR strings (for style of course) it sounded amazing. Easy transitions with the huge frets on this thing. My only complaint is that its heavy as a cinder block. I put a heavy canvas strap on it but it will make your neck sore after a few hours. I recommend this guitar for the metalheads as well as the classic rockers because the pickups sound good in either channel.

    I bought, then later sold one of these guitars. I replaced the bridge pickup with a Duncan Detonator, which really helped the sound. My biggest problem with this guitar is that it never, no matter what I did, stayed in tune. I bought it because I always got noise when I muted the strings on my Warrior XT's, figuring that no Floyd-Rose tremolo would do the trick... I didn't count on new and different problems!

    plays good, just off balance

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Jackson has basically put their high-quality playability into a sloppy design. This thing is very obtuse, but if you can live with that, well, it's basically a Jackson, and that is good. I have never played a Jackson in where the neck was off, unless it was used. It's a great guitar, but I don't like the body all too much.

    Awesome guitar for the price

    A great guitar for the value, you can't beat this. The sound is great, and it plays great. Only complaints I see is tuning issues, which they aren't as bad as people say they are. It doesn't stay in tune like a guitar with locking trem, duh, but you might have to tune it every other day, it will only slightly be out a little, besides it doesn't hurt to tune it up before performance anyways.I got this guitar in november of 06, and it's one of the best electric guitars I have played for the price.

    AWESOME

    By Savman1

    from Undisclosed

    I wanted this guitar when I first saw it because of it's looks. I was tired of the ordinary look. When it got here, I fell even more in love. It feels better than any guitar I've ever strapped on. It plays awesome. It really rocks, but I play country too. I can get many differnet sounds out of this guitar with the tone knob.

    Metallica Beast

    By KirkHammett94

    from Redding CA

    This guitar is, without a doubt, amazing. As soon as i went into my local music shop,and looked at it, i was in love with it. The only flaw is that it doesnt have a whammy, but who cares, bend the strings. The harmonics are great.the style,the playabilaty,the price,everything is amazing. GET THIS GUITAR TO ROCK OUT SOME METALLICA ON IT!!

    Shred it up!

    By Vortex628

    from Naples, Florida

    Wow is all i can say about this guitar i picked it up and it was amazing. i was looking for a esp guitar at the time but didnt have the cash for the higher end models but when the guy handed me this i tried it out and was amazed the pickups dont miss a beat and its look will captivate all those at your gig(if you do gigs) the only problem i had was that i recommend buying a heavy strap and a straplock because it has some weight and you dont want this beast to take a fall.Overall its a great guitar and one worth buying and only $300!

    I got this as a Christmas Present about 2 years ago. It is really good for Metal. Then again i also recommend that you do a pickup change. Maybe for EMG's or maybe Seymour Duncans of something. The Stock Pickups are ok, but there not the best. Overall Great Guitar!

    Well worth the money!

    By Thanatos

    from Kansas City MO

    This is a great guitar if you dislike floyd rose tremelo's. I bought this guitar used and was going to steal the neck off of it but it played so nice I just kept it together. The stock pickups are not very good, I replaced them with Duncan JB and 59' and this guitar is sweet now. I find myself using it more than any of my other more expensive guitars.
