    An extreme design for extreme players.

    The shape of the Jackson WRXT X Warrior Electric Guitar is both extreme and practical. Sculpted edges make it comfortable to play and the overall balance of the instrument is excellent. Built with an basswood body, maple bolt-on neck with rosewood compound-radius fingerboard, 24 frets, sharkfin inlays, and a 25-1/2" scale. 2 Duncan Designed Detonator humbucking pickups, and a JT580LP double-locking tremolo equip you for the extreme reaches of hard rock and metal.

    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!

    absolutely love this guitar

    By jesse murray

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    the Jackson Warrior is an epic Metal guitar. Its floyd rose tremolo system is sensitive for fine tuning and durable. Its also very easy to use its not as stiff as regular tremelos like fender. The duncan pickups have great clarity and sustain much better than the ones i have on my les paul. i love the style of the body and the neck is rily smooth and easy to play on its a beautiful guitar. I am planning on taking out the duncans and dropping in some EMG 89 active humbuckers for more power and crunch.
    this jackson is an amazing guitar the duncan pickups have unbelievable sustain and clarity and the floyd rose is simply a flawless tremolo system this guitar is a definite upgrade from my les paul and it plays so smoothly. The Jackson Warrior is an epic guitar and i am definitely glad i got this guitar
    this guitar is built for you to play with it have fun it wont break unless ur truly being an idiot like trying to hold yourself up with the tremolo its very durable and extremely well crafted
    this is a great value for this guitar the ones i was looking at were closer to $1000 and higher and this one plays just as well if not better and is at least half the price its a great deal

    Better than I expected.

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    WOW! If you're a metal-head, like double-locking tremolo systems, and need/want a quality guitar for a reasonable price, look no further. The licensed is high quality; it's not as good as the original but it's darn close! It only goes a tiny tiny bit out of tune when you do a high pull-up with the tremolo. As with all Floyd Rose trems, it's a PAIN to tune but, once you get it in the tuning you want this thing stays nearly perfectly tuned no matter what you do: high bend, dive, pull-up, flutter, anything! All it might need is a small bit of re-adjusting but that's it. And don't mind those reviews that complain about the output of the pickups, they're very HIGH output-nearly active. the only thing I could do without is the tone control but if you know what your doing you can do some interesting things with it. I prefer smaller frets (I also own a Squier strat but I needed a nice Metal guitar) but this thing has excellent playability. The hardest for me was putting the guitar strap on it; I assure you, you will NOT need any strap locks, the strap buttons are already HUGE!!! I'm talking about 2/3 of an inch, I mean HUGE!!! I got the trans black finish and it's beautiful. In the right lighting, along with the shape, it gives the guitar the perfect metal touch.Cons: tuning goes a little off when you do pull-ups with the tremolo (not as good as the original), and, as usual, it takes FOREVER to tune and it's hard to set up the first time or whenever you want to change the tuning.Pros: Light-weight, Spectacular shape/craftsmanship, beautiful (in my case) trans black finish, does great with dives, high bends, and flutters, Powerful pickups, good tuning stability, HUGE strap buttons.Overall: for what you get, AMAZING value. However if you have the money, I'd go with the one with the original Floyd Rose if you want perfect tuning stability (and like it's finish better). Or, if you don't mind retuning a [tiny] bit when you do pull-ups, get this guitar. Jackson did an examplary job with this guitar; I assure you, you Wont be disappointed!

    not bad at all

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    the other guitar player in my band has one of these. personally i'm not totally into the radical X design for a guitar but for what this has on it it's pretty well worth it. the floyd allows divebombs easily, and the duncan pickups sound great.

    My First Jackson & Very Impressed

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    I recently started playing again after putting down my guitar for 20 years. Last year I picked up a used Fender Squier Strat to see if I could get back into regular playing (three kids and too many projects). Well, I wasn't fond of the Strat due to heavy pickup buzz and the constant need to tune the guitar every 30 minutes, but I started to recover some of my skills. I was in a cover band through high school. I decided to upgrade my equipment and since I have always owned strat style guitars, I thought I would look into something different. I love this guitar! I love the feel of the neck, the sound of the pickups, the finish, and most of all, the fact that the guitar stays in tune better than any other guitar I've owned. I was concerned about the tuning a locking tremelo (my first one) after reading other reviews, but it's a cinch! Just be sure to properly stretch your strings and follow the E-E-B-A-G-D back to low E pattern (just check YouTube). Then its dive bombs away!Now that I've been playing it daily for about 3 months, I can say that given the chance to do it all over, I would choose this guitar again. I'm trying to think of any dislikes. I wish the guitar came in red, I got the transblack, which is beautiful, but the trans finish is lost on the viewer unless there is a lot of light on the guitar. A few times I've bumped the guitar on cabinets/chairs since it has an unusual shape. While the Duncan designed humbuckers have a nice sound, I've noticed while trying to get a Van Halen tone, the pickups sound a little muted on harmonics and certain tapping techniques - ie I wonder if the EMGs would be more powerful and/or sensitive. I will say the the Duncan designed pickups do not buzz at all with my setup.I use a VOX Valvetronix amp and also spend a lot of time with the JamVox playing VH, Ozzy, etc.. Some of my friends who prefer folk music think the Warrior is hideous, if not entertaining. Other buddies are intensly jealous. I have it hanging on the wall when not in use - even my wife thinks it looks cool!

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    I just started playing a year or so ago, but I definitely have a knack for it. I've plugged in and played five or six guitars. The Jackson WRXT Warrior is by far my favorite. I love pretty much everything about it, from the shape to the paint job to the hardware.Features: You can go to Jackson's website for a full spec sheet, but some of the best features on this guitar are the zero-fret string locks, the floating bridge (more on that later) and the Detonators. The lock at the top keeps the strings from going out of tune for longer than other guitars, which helps compensate for the fact that it sucks to tune. The humbuckers perform very well, giving a warm, rich sound. If you prefer more bite, then using only the bridge pickup gives you a much more responsive note. I guess I could see why people have called them "muddy", but you can fix that pretty easily with the tone knob. I should know, because I play punk, which requires a lot of sharp, treble-y chords. But back to the bridge. With most guitars, when you tune the strings once, you go back to the low E and it's a little out of tune. Well, this is like that on steroids. It's tricky to get them in tune, but be persistent. Once you get the hang of it, you won't even notice it.Quality: I can't site a single flaw in the quality of this guitar, so moving on...Value: I think the price (for the cool trans finish) is a pretty fair price for everything that's packed into this guitar. If you have the money, though, probably best to go for the WRMG.Overall: It's awesome. I love it. I would recommend it for anyone who plays rock, metal, alternative or maybe even punk.Notes: -Even though it's advertised, you can't buy it in trans red. I thought you could, but apparently they stopped making them in that color. It's okay, though, I got a trans black instead and I absolutely love the color and finish. -The jumbo frets make playing bar chords way easier. -Don't try to tune it to anything except an E until you've looked at the Floyd Rose website so you know how to do it properly. -At this point, I'm going to digress a little and say that I have a friend who sells antler picks. I bought one, and I don't use any other pick now. They are perfect for strumming-heavy playing. Check 'em out.

    Playable Right Out of the Box

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    Actually, playable after tuning the strings. This guitar was pretty dang well set up right out of the box. The Jackson Licensed Floyd was spot on, aside from the g-string being just a tad off. Once I got the strings stretched and tuned, I locked the nut. It stays in tune perfectly. The strings were actually ok until they go dead I'll leave them on. The action was set nicely where I like it. This is my first Floyd Rose style trem so it's taking some getting used to but everything sounds, to me, tuned up and ready to go. Docked a quarter of a point for being a Jackson Licensed trem and not an actual Floyd.The pickups surprised me. The Duncan "Designed" Detonators were excellent in Clean and Bluesy tones, especially in the neck position. Their shortfall however is distortion. I've heard it and I believe it be true, they seem to be muddy with distortion, not nearly as much bite as I like. Not even as much as my EMG passives. I'll probably be swapping my EMG for the bridge position but keeping the Detonator in the neck, as it has the smoothness I like for cleaner tones. Docked a quarter of a star for the pickups.I got the Transparent Black finish. It looks spectacular. Not a flaw on it.The body is smaller than I had thought, which works out fine. The weight is very well distributed.Jackson did a great job with this one. Not a flaw.

    Wow...

    Comments about Jackson WRXT Warrior Electric Guitar:

    So, I got some money for Christmas and was looking to upgrade my gear, so I figured what the heck I'll buy this guitar. I loved the shape, however I'd heard some bad things about the pickups, things like they're too muddy and stuff of that nature. Well, let me tell you that that is BULL. This guitar is a hot rodded, shred headed, monster of metal! The neck is super fast. Tuners are nice and fluid so you can tune fast and then lock the strings in place, and fine tune with the knobs on the Floyd, which by the way is also great. Next best thing to the original version. I got the trans black finish and it's gorgeous, very nice to see in person. The pickups are very high output. I can see why people might say they're muddy. Probably because they put them in the WRONG guitar. Not every pickup works with every guitar. These are meant for metal, and need to be put into a METAL guitar. Luckily, this guitar is exactly that.Pros: Great neck, tunes great, amazing finish, hot pickups, shape helps it balance on your lap or bring the neck up depending on if you're sitting or standing.Cons: The pickups are great, but they need just a bit more bite to em. If you have the extra dough, buy the Jackson WRMG because it's the exact same guitar only with EMG pickups and black chrome hardware. Overall, BUY THIS GUITAR if you're in the dollar range. If you're willing to pay more, go for the WRMG.
