Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water . . .
The WRMG features shark-influenced body design, piranha inlays, 24-fret/25.5" scale neck, EMG-HZ pickups, and an EMG TurboCharger (20dB variable gain boost). Bound rosewood fretboard. Double-locking tremolo.
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!

This axe has amazing sustain while coling and doing dual harmonies with rhythm guitarist even without a through-neck. The emgs are great they work well with a digitech gnx3. I love how cool it makes me look onstage with the radical body design. This is my first jackson and i'm not dissapointed.
It is nice, and the shape is totally wicked, but the sound is just not there. Perhaps with better pickups it would be 100%
Awesome guitar. The bound neck feels just right, and the guitar's balance is perfect. The passive EMG-HZ humbuckers sound fantastic, great for metal. You can play without a battery if you like. The turbo charger can be turned on by pulling up on the third pot. This 20db variable boost allows the player to decide just how active the humbuckers become, so to speak. With an EMG 81, it's all or nothing. You have more control with the HZ, and can make subtle changes to the tone. Or you can open it up a bit, for more bottom end. A nice feature that is misunderstood by many. Jackson must have realized the confusion this feature was causing, cause now they just put regular 81s and 85s in the newer line of WRMG Warriors. I prefer the HZs. And yes, I've tried them both. I even compared this shred tone against the Wolbers Sig Dinky, another EMG 81 driven axe. The WRMG Warrior out-preformed. Yes, new battery in the 81. Of course, its all just a matter of opinion. And this one is mine! The sound is a great complement to my Seymour Duncan driven Jackson DR-3. I create a tidal wave of molten metal when these two tones are recorded together. I love it.Bottom line- this is a quality, professional grade guitar. Its well worth the higher price. If you play thrash/death metal, this guitar will serve you well. Just be careful not to bang that back fin up against something, and you'll be fine. If still uncertain, try before you buy! Cya
Excellent guitar. Has the sound to match it's awesome body style. Very tough to find its match.
Amazing guitar, amazing price, amazing value, amazing features.
Awesome guitar!!!positives 1.Turbo booster makes it scream2.Double locking tremolo helps me bend the strings like crazy3.24 frets for higher tone4.awesome looknegatives1.not a separate knob for the turbo boost (they put one on anyway I don't know why but who cares)2.ok pickups (not bad but not good)3.not jumbo frets (but that doesnt really matter now does it ?)
First of all, I really like how fast and smooth the neck is. 24 frets for crazy-high runs. The neck gives you maximum playability. The EMG Turbocharger system is great; you can use it as kind of an independent solo channel. Black hardware and black paint makes this thing a beast, I put the black Diamond black coated strings on there to make it look scary. The only thing I don't like is how if you are playing really fast on the very low frets, the metal Floyd tremelo nut aggrivates the hell out of your hand.
I have owned several guitars in the past six years that I've been playig, and this ax is the real deal. The playablity is awsome accept if you have small hands and play solos all the way up and down the neck. The floyd rose never dissapoints, the boost is great for putting your lead "out there" in a performance. Overall, this ax is the proper equipment to shred forever. Get it, it wont disappoint!
Although it's a little neck heavy, this is the best guitar i have ever owned/played. Good sound with the emg-hz pickups, i would like to hear it with emg81.
It's my first guitar and I'm not disappointed at all. I love this thing, it sounds great! I've tried my dads guitars and my friends guitar but I like mine much better. I love bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep purple, AC/DC etc. and I have no doubt that this thing will be able to Rock like the big dogs.
I've had this guitar for about a year and a half. I must say, I fell in love with it the second I opened the box. Just looking at the guitar, the lines, the finish, it's beautiful! It plays exceptionally. The fretboard is fast and smooth, and the trem stays in tune no matter what you throw at it. I don't understand how others seem to think the Turbocharger doesn't do anything. I like to run it 1/4 to 1/2 the way up, it fattens up my tone a bit from the extra volume. The EMG's of course are excellent. While they may not be the best, they still beat the snot out of just about any other stock pickup. They have plenty of crunch for rhythm and clarity for soloing or crystal clean sounds. The guitar is also fairly light and easy on the shoulder. About my only complaint is the bolt-on neck. I prefer set neck/neck through, and while I don't usually mind a bolt on, the heel on the Jackson is quite massive, making upper fret access somewhat challenging. Overall, superb quality and playability make this guitar a great buy.
ahh well, first off it's really light and the quality is beautiful.The shark shape is excellent, but the colors they offer are only colors that upset me really.I bought a cobalt blue warrior to play Nocturnus and Morbid Angel so if that's what you wanna play this guitar can shred like a god and scream like a pheonix.Don't be suprised if you level up faster than your other guitar friends, this axe is a real mean and nasty guitar that can whip out some serious sonic brutal death metal.
I play in a thrash band that requires very technical playing for both lead and rhythm, and this guitar is perfect; the neck is fast and slim, the frets are big enough, and the body balances very nicely. The sound is perfectly suited to my style as well. While the EMG-HZ pickups don't produce as much gain as, say, 81's, the sound is very clear and doesn't become muddy. I use the boost for soloing and love the Tubescreamer-like quality that it adds to my tone. A fantastic guitar all around.
This is my first Jackson in about 10 years. I was disappointed with the one I had back then, but this thing is something else. This is my 1st oddball shaped guitar, and I was really surprised at how comfortable it is to stand and sit with. I'm not that great standing and playing, but with this thing I could play as good as sitting. The neck/head bindings are flawless, and the EMG pickups are great. I was looking at the cheaper X model, but if you're gonna replace those cheesy pickups anyhow, just get the WRMG. No need to change the EMG's...they're great. The "overdrive" boost thing is ok, I suppose...but I found it noisy. It's a push/pull pot that just boosts the gain/volume like crazy...good for breaking into solos, but otherwise fairly useless to me. The bridge is steady and doesn't wobble, and the frets are freaking huge! My fingers just slide up and down like on ice. Good to see that Fender hasn't ruined Jackson!
This is a great guitar. Great pickups, a very efficient tremolo, and a sound that is one of a kind. The turbocharger is a great feature which just either gives you a light overdrive sound on clean or a much heavier distortion while on distortion, but while reading other review I read that people think the third knob does nothing, which when it is pushed in, it does nothing. You have to pull the pot up for it to turn on the turbocharger, so don't think that you're being ripped off becuase it doesn't work. You can't tell it doesn't work until you pull the pot up and turn it up. Push it back in and its off again, pretty simple. Great guitar, A+
