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.

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.
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.

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.
Okay, first off, this guitar can and will sustain its sound. The pickups are what you would expect from an intermediate guitar and the finish and floyd rose are amazing. Pick up some EMG's for it and it will be a crowd pleaser. Overall its a really great guitar. Only thing I had wrong with it was the floyd rose was messed up when I took it out of the box. Shipping issues I'm guessing. But its a great guitar to mess around on.
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.
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!
this guitar is good for any metal player, duncan designed won't be of course like the seymour duncan invader, but they don't sound so different: high power and very dynamic, the body is really cool, and the neck is pretty comfortable.
i have played a WRXT at guitar center and it is great. the neck is thin and smooth (which is good for playing fast), it is extremely comfortable to play sitting down, and the sound is great. this is definately a good guitar for you if you play metal, but its also good to play for other genres.
I hope nobody interprets my rating of this guitar the wrong way. It's a wonderful guitar for its price range. I bought mine about 4 years ago. It has a sweet, clear sound, and it's perfect for metal. The locking nut is a wonderful feature, especially when you're around kids a lot. My pickup mounting rings are breaking, but something that minor is to be expected after 4 years of playing it. I've lent it to friends for hardcore shows, and they've all loved it. It's not at all a bad axe for its price tag.
