This guitar is amazing, and that pretty much sums up everything I'm about to write.Anyway, the guitar just feels so right for my style of playing, which is metal/metalcore, or anything in that ball park. I play it through a Line 6 Spider IV and the sound is just downright awesome. The neck is pretty darn fast, and the action on mine was set just right for me. It stays in tune pretty well, and thats always a good sign for a good guitar. If I absolutely HAD to say something I didn't like about this guitar, it would be that it is a little heavy (no pun intended :D) and that it took me a couple days to get used to the weight of it. I used to play an old Epiphone SG, and thats was pretty light, so changing weight did take me some getting used to.All in all, i give this guitar 5 stars, hands down, especially for the price.

This is a low end guitar. It is made in Korea and it is the cheapest Jackson you can get. I bought one thinking it would get my by until I could afford the more expensive USA model but I returned it after one day. The Kelly is an excellent guitar, just not this version. It is made with cheap woods and other materials. The construction is also not high quality. The pickups, everything on this guitar is second rate. The next step up is the KE-3, which is a bit better but still not a high end guitar. Now I realized that it is expensive, in fact it took me a year of payments to be able to afford it, but if you can possible find a way it is WELL worth the wait until you can afford the USA KE-2 Kelly. It is the same shape as this, but that is where the similarity ends, that guitar has the best of everything, woods and other materials like the original floyd rose trem (not a cheap licensed version) neck through construction instead of bolt on. Top level finishes, nice Seymour Duncan Pickups. It is truly a great guitar and if you get a chance to try one out you will immediately see the obvious difference in quality. The USA version is a guitar that you will never outgrow, that you will keep for the rest of your life. You will NOT have any poor quality fret jobs such as on this cheap model. To me this guitar was simply useful for kindling. There are other inexpensive guitars that I would buy if I could not buy the USA KE-2 in the meantime that are much better than this guitar, for a few hundred more you can get a very very much better guitar. Get one of those, try out every guitar in your price range in the store and you will find something that fits you. In the end having one really nice guitar like a USA Jackson KE-2 will make you MUCH happier than 10 cheap guitars. My USA Jackson has gone up in value, all my cheaper guitars have gone down, how much I wish I would have not got them and had the combined money for one really nice guitar. It is the only way to go. A Jackson Kelly is an awesome guitar...just not this cheap version.

Sweet Guitar

By Casey Coates

from West virginia

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

For the price, really good guitar. I've only had it for about two weeks, but I love it. Great addition to my collection. I play it through a digitech hot head distortion pedal, and a Randall RX20 amp. I play a lot of hard rock and thrash metal, and this guitar is great for it. It only has one volume control and one tone control, but other than that, stock hardware is great. The pickups sound great through the clean channel, and you can really jam with distortion added. The gigbag is a little loose, offers virtually no protection, but it's a universal fit bag, and gigbags aren't made for protection, but it's definitely better than carrying around alone till you can get a hardshell case. Overall, I would definitely recomend this guitar. It's nice and liteweight, and has a bolt on neck, which makes repairs a hell of a lot easier if something happens to the head or neck. This is just my opinion, but if you buy it, you won't be disappointed

Good for the money

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

Ok, so I bought this guitar to give away but before doing so I had to put it through the motions. For the low price, this guitar is great! No, this isn't pro level gear, but for the beginner who'll be getting this from me-it's perfect! The pickups are hot, the neck is very fast, it stays in tune pretty well; what else could you ask for from an entry-level shredder? You want to start playing metal? Get this guitar NOW! I've honestly never played a better guitar for this price and I've been at it for over 20 years!

No complaints from me

By The Boogeyman

from West Virginia

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

I've owned a total of eight guitars in my time, this Jackson Kelly included. It's one of the best guitars I've ever laid my hands on. The body style balances perfectly, while retaining that wild look. I own the gunmetal gray version, which looks brilliant. I'd have to say that the best feature on this guitar is it's neck, and that is because it's thin and wide. It's perfect for my giant hands.

BEST GUITAR I'VE EVE OWNED!

By anotherblackout

from Fort Bragg, NC

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

This guitar is one of the best guitars I've ever played and hands down the best one that I own. The neck on this thing is super fast and it's easy to get your hand on those high frets because they made the neck a bit longer and the cutaway isn't like the typical les paul, SG, Strat, ect. Another good thing about this guitar is that it's easy to play sitting or standing. A lot of people say they have problems with it standing up. If thats the case, re-adjust your strap until it works for you. The only problem with this guitar is that it is next to impossible to find a hardshell case for it due to the shape of it. My dad looked all over Dallas to try to find a case for it while I was deployed and it was just by shear luck that he found one. The guy at the store told him the reason for the scarceness is because Jackson was bought out by Fender. Not sure if that's true or not so don't quote me on it. Another thing I wish I would have done differently would be to get one with a Floyd Rose tremolo system on it. If you are looking for a change, this is the guitar. Other than the case issue, this guitar is perfect for me and I highly recommend it.

Metal Machine

By Valicos

from Alaska

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

I've owned this guitar for about 3 years now, and its still one of the best guitars ive played since i bought it. the harmonics are beautifull, wicked note bending, and in a drop, it produces a wall of sound. the slim neck lets you play lightning fast. if it seems that you just can't get a good sound out of it, just lower the bridge alittle. the only problem ive ever had with it is about one year ago, the neck shrunk, exposing the frets nearthe open position. hydraded it, and it was all good. i would recomend this guitar.

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

i've been playing guitar and other string instruments for about 45 years. I've played a jazz concert with this guitar and i got so many complements to how beautifully smooth it sounds, but i also have to add the strings should be replaced as usual but this guitar is very easy to pick up and get used to. just plain and simple BEAUTIFUL PEACE OF WORK

Quite surprising for the price!

By Rev2010

from New York

Comments about Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar with Gig Bag:

I've been playing for 19 years so I'm no noob. I have much more expensive guitars in my possession but bought this with the sole intent of upgrading most of it. I got this cause I wanted the string through body (hate dealing with floating trems). Construction is quite good but I needed to oil the neck which was quite dry. The pickups actually aren't bad at all but I'm still gonna throw Duncans in there. The volume and tone posts and the 3-way switch are clearly cheap components but they function and can be upgraded. The input jack needs to be switched as it has play and doesn't hold firmly. But the body, neck, bridge, and even pickups are all quite good. The tuners feel a little too free but surprisingly hold the tuning well. I use this tuned down to B with 13-56 strings. If you do so you should spool the four highest strings the opposite way or some of the strings will slip right out of the nut. So in other words you need to string around the tuners the opposite way so the strings are pulling less to the side of the nut. I got mine with the 15% off so this was a steal!
