Comments about Jackson KEXMG Quilt Maple Top Electric Guitar:
Jackson's X-series finally has a Kelly! But the description provided by most of the sites selling these guitars don't tell the whole story - this is a neck-thru with an UNFINISHED NECK. That is an incredible combination - and an option only available through the custom shop on the USA-made Jacksons - or for anybody willing to take sandpaper to their neck-through guitar (no thanks). The unfinished neck is just so much quicker to play than a painted or lacquered neck.
Fit and finish are pretty good for a Chinese-manufactured guitar. The quilt maple top looks great. On mine, it is really dark, so it looks black from a distance or in shadow. The neck plays great. No problems with the Floyd, EMGs or hardware. Some bits of discoloration on the neck binding, but nothing very noticable - looks like its just a bit of paint overrun from where they taped the neck off when they painted the guitar. Overall a nicely manufactured guitar.
As far as tone - you have a set of active pick-ups (EMG 81/85), so the basswood wings shouldn't really be a concern.
Overall - for the price, this guitar is well worth the money.
