OVERVIEW

An affordable, awesome metal axe!

The Jackson WRXT Warrior electric guitar features a basswood body (with flame maple veneer on trans finishes), bolt-on maple neck, fast compound radius rosewood fingerboard, Duncan Designed Detonator humbucking pickups for brutal output, Jackson double-locking tremolo for intense whammy action, and chrome hardware.

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 guitar has really impressed me for many reasons. The first reason is obviously the body design. What metal player could not love the shape of this guitar? Simply awesome... Another great thing about this guitar is the price. If I had to guess the price of this guitar after trying it out, I would estimate it to be atleast 200-300 dollars more. Yet another great thing is the playability. The action on this is sweet. It is real low and it has the right number of frets for shreddin it up. The only things that I don't absolutely love about this guitar are the pickups and the trem. I think a real Floyd Rose as opposed to the knockoff "licensed" would be a lot better, although it is ok for the price. Also, the pcikups aren't that great, but I replaced the stock pickups with the EMG zakk wylde setup (81 + 85 which will run you about 200 more dollars), and this axe sounds killer! Pay the extra money for better pickups, it's worth it!

I have owned the Jackson WRXT for about a year now and this is what I have to say about it(this may not pertain to all, but this is an evaluation of the one I own). The guitar is not a steal, you get what you pay for. I have a trans blue, and it looks great, but the finish is not as stellar as my friends dean. I have even chipped one of the points by bumping into an amp, I'm not saying nothing should have happened, but the paint should be a little more resilient. I?ve dropped a fender mexican and it didn?t chip(pretty impressive). The next thing is the volume knob, it?s made to stay on by tighten a little screw to keep the knob in place. The knob itself is good, but that little screw just keeps loosening, so I need to keep tightening it or else my volume knob falls off the guitar, really annoying. Here is a major designing flaw of the guitar(I missed this when I was buying the guitar). The pickups are duncan design, they aren?t really good to be honest; but I wouldn?t expect Jackson to put anything better than duncan designs for the price. However, if Jackson is going to use basswood for the body of the guitar, then they NEED to change the pickups. The basswood is really bassy and so the guitar sounds really muddy. If you play the guitar thru a Marshall(because Marshalls are thin) it?ll sound pretty good(kind of like a Marshall and Les Paul combination if you know what I mean). But thru a mesa, it?s extremely muddy. Jackson should have really used alder for the body, it would have made a world of a difference(like the WRMG). As for the Floyd Rose, I think it?s amazing licensed tremolo. I do some real low dive bombs and nothing goes out of tune. I don?t have to re-tune for an entire week at times, really amazing. The neck is a little thicker than you?d expect out of a Jackson guitar, and the fingerboard is faster than a fender. The great cut out makes it really easy to hit even the 24th fret. Last but not least, the guitar is a little heavy but it is well balanced, the headstock does not fall to the ground like Sgs or Explorers. Overall, take this all into consideration. I love the shape of this guitar and if you see no other guitar but this one then consider the WRMG. Although I hate EMGs, the wood is better and it?ll sound much better. Or be prepared to change the pickups on the WRXT.

always out of tune

By Go Wylde

from new castle PA

See all my reviews

well i bought the guitar cause it looked good and i also needed a guitar with a whamy bar. needles to say, i never pick it up. the guitar NEVER stayes in tune. it even goes out of tune while your tuning it. and forget about using the whamy bar. the sound is really good if you play metal, but if you cant keep it in tune, whats the point. i have been playing for 21 years and i never had or seen a guitar that did this. what a shame! i wish i would have gotten my money back.

beauty and function

By Andras

I picked one of these up from the scratch and dent sale a few weeks ago, and am very impressed. The price I paid was unbelievable for what I got. I've played bass for a year, and this is my first guitar. The playability was incredible although the straps sit a little weird. I have had no trouble playing from a sitting ir standing position. If you've got the cash, think about it.

Good for shredding, built poorly

By NeoConfederate13-pGPyY

from PA

1 month after I bought this the neck began warping in such a way that the high e string (the smallest string) was off the neck, while the low E string (the biggest string) was in the middle of the neck. The knobs fell off very quickly. Also, I goes out of tune VERY easily, even w/ the tune lockers.Good metal shredding tone. The floating bridge is sweet, but knocks the guitar out of tune VERY easily even w/ the locks.

I played this at a guitar store and liked it. I didnt have a strap and it was kinda hard to play sitting down but it was sweet - smooth neck and good Floyd.

A Great Guitar for the Working Musician

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I'm 14 years old, and I bought this about 3 weeks ago from a music store. I play this with my Gibson Flying V Faded through a Fender Blues Junior, a Digitech Grunge Distortion, and a DOD Chorus, and it sounds great. I had to change the pickups to Duncan Invaders and an extra volume knob, but other than that, it's a great guitar. It fits me well because the music in my band "Megallica" (combined for Megadeth and Metallica) involves a lot of Floyd Rose tremolo stuff, so it's a great back up guitar. Try it out. You might like it. Cheers!

My Dreams Come True

By AxeSlinger91

from Wood Heights, MO

After owning this guitar for a few days I no longer want any more guitars. This is the one for me. Mine has the transparent blue finish and if youve got the money I highly recomend it. The neck fells silk like. Almost to the piont of no friction. The pickups are very good but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If youre like me the floyd ross bridge can be bad but thats because ive gotten into the hobby of resting my hand on the bridge. It's very touchy but is great once you get the hang of it. Overall this is my favorite guitar out of 2 ibanez, a dean, and an oscar schmidt. P.S. Make sure you have a custom case, wall hanger, or very high guitar stand because this things awesome body is to cool for normal things.

OH yea

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Ok, I was a little skeptical about buying this guitar at first, but after I had bought it, I tried it out. AMAZING. It has awesome pickups, and it stays in tune all the time. The only bad thing I dont like, is that when you tap, it is a little dull, but I dont tap much. If you are considering this guitar, DON'T RECONSIDER. It is awesome.

Best Extreme Shape!!!

By Necrocenturion

from Bloomington, MN

See all my reviews

The Jackson Warrior is the best extreme shape ever. Strap buttons in perfect position for excellent balance. Not neck heavy at all like the V's and Kelly's. I swapped out the weak Duncan Detonators for an EMG 81(bridge)/85(neck) set. Very brutal axe for METAL and even with the pup swap, its cheaper than the WRMG. Neck is ultra thin for maximum speed. Thinner than the DXMG neck. I've been playing Jacksons/Charvels for 18 years and this has the best balance for an extreme shape. Jacksons are just built like tanks, howitzers, and gunships. Brutal!

Buy!

By Joltaxe

from Grand Island, NE

I've been playing for 7 years straight and I've owned Epiphone, Peavey, Ibanez, Dean, and Washburn. I loved them all, but this guitar is pushing my talent and I have only had it for 2 hours. The speed, the sound, the craftsmenship, all amazing. If you're looking to be faster and a Dime-esk sound, it's time to get a Warrior! Oh yeah, the JSX head is the perfect complement.

By Dustin Cornett

I bought this guitar 2 weeks ago and received it last week. I've played 2 shows with it already and I love it! It's a really good guitar, but the pick ups could be better, I suggest invaders. The tremolo isn't the best, but it's pretty darn good for the price!!!!!!

sweetness reincarnated into a guitar!!

By drycement1

from Bowie, MD

This guitar is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Especially for it's price. the body is the most amazing thing since microwave ovens, the pick ups are pretty good (good enough for me anyway), and the tremolo is pretty good to...I've never played with a REAL Floyd rose trem. but it probably would be better than the "lisenced" one that it has, but this guitar is still amazing

Great guitar for the price. Pick-ups are great, cannot beat them. I have been playing death/speed metal for 7-years and this is by far the best guitar I have played so far. GREAT Floyd Rose, if it is going out of tune, check your settings. I recommend this guitar to anyone who is a beginner and wants to get better. The experienced will not be disappointed either. LOVE THIS GUITAR.

With this guitar, i was able to inhance my guitar ability. not only do i have to worry about tunning that often but it also has great sounds. iv previously owned a ibanez wiht guitar tunning locking and i was greatly unhappy with it, it made me hesitent to buy this product, but in the end it was a good choice. The guitar not only sounds great but also exseeds my expectations. i greatly recommend it.

Great Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The guitar is an awesome guitar. Great appearance, and amazing all around sound. Jacksons are labeled as metal guitars but if you've got the right gear, you can get any sound you want. The Floyd Rose is a little tight. The worst parts of the guitar are that is very hard to keep in tune while you are tuning, and to find a case is near impossible. Overall: amazing guitar.

Mean Metal Machine

By JLY Pro Series

from Young, AZ

This guitar is awesome! The balance and sound is perfect for anybody looking for a hard rocking, brutal sounding, beautiful guitar.I personally customized mine and replaced the Duncan designed Detonator bridge humbucker with a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker and now produces a much more phenomenal killer tone. But the hardware that comes standard still hits pretty hard as well. All in all, it is the perfect platform for an extreme guitar that WILL rock hard, be comfortable and easy to play, and turn heads on the stage. It is smooth yet still DANGEROUS. The Warrior is indeed a warrior!

Amazing Guitar

By Young Metal head

from Western New york

I bought this guitar used and modified so some parts of the reveiw are different than if you bought it new. The first thing about this guitar is it's made for metal but you could probably use it for just about anything. However even though it's used for metal the neck pickup on mine (which is the stock pickup) is terrible at harmonics. However mine has an EMG HZ in the bridge and that thing screams with harmonics. The other problems with this guitar are that the floyd rose is only licensed and gos out of tune if you dive bomb a lot. Also i think the guy who owned this before messed up the soddering when he put in the HZ so i had to get that fixed but everything else seems quality and sounds good. However the neck feels awesome and since this was my first guitar made for shredding it feels great to plays solos on. All in all buy this guitar and you will love it.
