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!

Well this was my second guitar. I bought it mainly for the looks to be honest, its an absolute METAL axe.the shape itself is really comfortable although it took a little getting used to as my last guitar was simple shaped SG, But once you break it in it plays amazingly.The neck is really comfortable something to be expected from jackson guitars. Its not to think or thin, So its smooth and plays great even on the higher frets.Great for shredding and soloing.The pickups though arent that great though if you compare it up against the higher model warriors. although for the price the tone is pretty good. played with the right amp and you can get some great metal tones out of this.The neck pickup is good, has a really crunchy tone to it, plays amazing if you want to rock out some riffs.The bridge pickup is basically the neck one but with a little more bass, it plays great on the lower frets you can get a really nice warm tone for soling.The finish on this Axe is probably my favorite part of the guitar, i've knocked this thing up against everything imaginable and to this day its still look brand new, it was defiantly built to last.so yea if your looking for a guitar to will turn eyes this is your Axe Great shape, good tone and absolutley worth it for such a cheap price.

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!

I see people saying the head is heavy. It only makes from longer sustain. Instead of having a "zonky" tone that sits in the body, it has a crisp sharp tone that sustains as long as you pin the strings(well almost). The neck is as comfortable as can be. BUT, if you want amazing sound, change the pickups. I swear by EMG-HZ passive in the bridge for great metal sound. And leave the factory neck pickup, the sound is very warm and clear which is kinda tough to find anymore since you either get one or the other instead of both. I have been recording for 10 years and it's set up I use when making all Life's Eclipse music. You can search it out and hear what I mean as far as Clean, and Heavy go.
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.
I got this guitar for my birthday (but in red), and its great. The only complaint I had was the headstock is kinda heavy and it kinda pushes down more, but thats something small. It has a nice slim neck for faster playing, and it looks mad cool.
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.
Jackson JS30WR Warrior, Black FinishThis is my third electric guitar and is so far the best, although I will be upgrading to a Dean here shortly. The neck has a nice feel to it allowing for quick and easy movement across the fretboard. There is only one really glaring problem that I've had with this guitar (hence the 4.0 quality rating) and that is the fact that it is very top heavy. If you like to play standing up you're going to want to get a very sturdy strap as it will try to dip down a lot. The pickups, while nice, are not the best. I customized my Warrior with dual DiMarzio pickups which really helped it put out some nice riffs. If you're looking for a nice guitar for a good price and have to have the warrior shape, don't hesitate to buy it. I would just recommend you look at the King V or Randy Rhodes model due to the warrior's top heavy problem.
Really sick, plays great the only thing I think it's missing is a wammy bar. When I first got mine I had to adjust the action on it but that didn't take very long. It's totally worth it.
O.K. This may be the first guitar I own, but I've played others. It's one of the best all around guitars ive seen. everything is perfect except the low E string buzzes every-now-and-then. also the pickups kind of echo your sliding motions.(so be accurate!) All and All an extremely excellent axe. must buy.
Maybe I got lucky. I already have a Gibson Explorer but it is a drag, big and heavy. So when I saw this, I said why not. It is smaller than a Gibson as far as the body. But the tone is close.I can't say it has the Gibson growl, but it's a full sweet tone anyway. It has chime and twang along with a full bodied harmonic chir-ang. Maybe I got a good piece of wood. But I know when a guitar has IT. When the amp is in overdrive this pickup/body combo has that extra harmonic that makes the chords hold together and sing. It's alive with tone. I'm not going to try to "fix" it with different pickups, know what I mean?But the guitar made it here intact so I'm keeping her! This body style begs for a paint scheme, so I bought some colored electrical tape and have my design ready to apply! Enjoy!
This guitar is phenomenal for the price. I've owned it for two years. Almost immediately replaced the pickups with a Duncan Dimebucker (bridge) and a DiMarzio Super Distortion (neck) and ended up with a professional sounding guitar for an amateur's price. This was my second electric guitar, and has always remained my favorite. I've owned and sold an RR3 Rhoads and a Schecter C1 Hellraiser over the years, and this still remains my favorite guitar (hence the no selling). It has been very reliable as well, I have yet to have a problem with it during a show. I also record with this guitar and haven't had any problems there. So far I've replaced the tuners with locking tuners, the pickups, and the volume pot just went so I'm replacing that. The one area that they could work on is the paint, as it chips very very easily.Very satisfied, a must buy for a musician on a budget.
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!
