Good guitar, bit overpriced

Comments about Jackson SLAT3-7 Soloist Archtop 7-string Electric Guitar:

Made in Japan Jackson 7 string neck through body.I got this guitar at $1200 before they raised the price and I have to say that I like the build and looks. The jumbo frets are a bit big and you need some time to get used to - so see if you like that kind of fret before you go and purchase.Craftmanship is very good - fit and finish is perfect on this guitar. The pickups are ok but I am not really floored. There just seem not to be enough tone options - I would've preferred a 3 way Gibson style knob on this one where you can mix the two pickups in the middle or maybe at least one more tone control for the other pickup.At $1400 this guitar is starting to sound a bit expensive, $1200 was still a bit much but it comes with a case which they'd sell you for another $120 so if you factor that in, it isn't too bad.

Awesome 7 string, plays Like a dream

Comments about Jackson SLAT3-7 Soloist Archtop 7-string Electric Guitar:

This is the second 7 sting that I have owned and let me tell you it was exactly what I was looking for. The neck on this guitar is very comfortable and fairly thin compared to most necks, which makes it great for shredding and playing fast riffs. I also like that its a 25.5" scale because I find that on longer scales my fingers are not nearly as nimble, especially when playing higher up on the fretboard. Quality wise, you can't get much better. Its made in japan, which has better quality control than guitars made in say Korea or Indonesia. As far as tone goes, this thing sounds awesome. I really like the alder body and maple neck combination. I feel that it keeps your tone clear and articulate especially on the low B string. The floyd rose is nice as well because it keeps the guitar in tune and is great for doing dive bombs and other fancy stuff. The emgs are a perfect match for this guitar. The 81-7 in the bridge sounds good but I ended up putting the 707 in the bridge and the 81-7 in the neck because I like this setup better. I feel that the 707 in the bridge has a crunchier, thicker tone than the 81-7 and I think it just sounds better. The 81-7 in the neck sounds pretty good for cleans too, you just have to roll the volume back a little bit. Overall, I couldn't have asked for anything more in a guitar in this price range. It has far exceeded my expectations.

A Jackson Feel, a 7 string.

Comments about Jackson SLAT3-7 Soloist Archtop 7-string Electric Guitar:

Overall. Love it, couldn't ask for better.

Only 1 gripe. But it's a big one for picky people like me. sigh. I have a "Gun Metal Grey" bass and the color is killer. It looks like in the pictures that it is the same color. It also says it is Gun Metal Grey. But... when you get it, it is actually a gloss grey with SPARKLES. now, in a darker atmosphere at a gig you probably can't notice it... but it is not the matte dark grey that the pix show. it is a gloss grey with millions of little glittery sparkles. To me it just makes it look dusty all the time. lets see. the other choices? gloss black... which will show every fingerprint and you'll be wiping it with a microfiber cloth every 2 minutes. and the average song is what 4-5 minutes? talk about disrupting your playing! lol. the other is that Wicked Green Swirl. Which I admit is pretty sweet... however it looks more like a "look at me I'm the most awesome guitarist in the world" color. which I'm not and don't pretend to be. So I suppose even knowing about the sparkles I still would have gotten this color. Just dissapointing thats all.
Features: the neck through is nice, great sustain. The EMGs sound good too. Floyd rose was easy to set up, although I had to put on an extra spring in the back because I use 11s and it comes with 9s.

As far as features go, the only thing I'd like for this to have is a 2nd volume nob. would be nice to have volume control for each pickup. 8/10 for only 1 volume nob.
Quality: great. I've got a lower grade Jackson (warrior xt) but I loved the feel of it (which is why I went for the Jackson 7 string). and a Schecter Hellraiser. the Schecter is nice... but I kept going back to my less expensive Jackson because I just loved how it felt. This model feels perfect. Action feels great, neck isn't too wide. The case it comes with is an SKB and looks like it'll last a lifetime. nice.
Value. love the guitar so I can't complain much. I did get a bit of a deal on it. I wouldn't want to pay full price for it. Just wait till MF has a 15% off sale and snatch it then. At that price it's a great deal.
