Jackson JS20 Dinky

Guitar

Made by Jackson

URL http://www.jacksonguitars.com
Description I'm new to guitar playing and this is my first electric. 2 single coil pickups and a humbucker by the saddle. The action is really low and easy on the fingers. Even the sound is great! If there's a better guitar out there for around $200 let me know.

For one of my first "good" guitars, it's awesome. It's great to improve on, and perfect for live performances.
Model Year: 2004
Price: $600.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Southpaw Guitars
Features:
Japanese made, maple body and neck, 24 frets, 6-string, 1 volume, 1 tone, S/S/H, passive electronics, Duncan Designed pickups, double cutaway, Floyd Rose tremelo, graphite Jackson tuners.
Playability:
The action is real fast. The neck is great for zipping back and forth.
Sound Quality:
I play strait through a Crate GFX212, and it sounds great. I play metal and it's got a killer low-end. Some feedback, but not too bad. Great for stage.
Durability:
As far as live goes, this is THE guitar. It's light, and the stock hardware hasn't done me wrong.

I LIKe THIS GUITAR ALOT but if I have enough money I might one different one for me Metal is the way to go so I ll get an ESP later... but if you like just lplain rock go for gibson or yamaha.. I would not recommend Ibanez .. 2 of my friends have it and one is dull and too much of bass in sound and other one is too much middle boost... Ibanez JS series is good though.. -------------------------

"I am getting KH-2 ppl..." this section is added sometime after
Model Year: 1999
Price: $400.00 AU (new)
Where Obtained: Turramusic Australia
Features:
Made in India 22 frets controls for a volume and a tone 2 single 1 hum(ssh) Jackson made pickups bolt on neck fixed bridge gets out of tune really easy It's unbeliveablly good for $400 bucks man.
Playability:
Neck is awesomely fast.. unbelieveable only, jumbo size frets should get the neck better than this. but cuz I m a begginers, the small fret divider or what ever its called helps me getting my finger heaps stronger dot inlays
Sound Quality:
If you like metal this is really good for ya. soloist, this is the one, BUT rhydthm guitarist. Nah look somewhere else... cuz the 2 single coil pickups are uslesss. sound dumb and dull HEAPS OF FEEDBACK, heaps of noise for single coils
Durability:
A wire inside fell off the tone and volume control gets loose and fall off

I'd buy another Jackson in a second if I had the cash.
Model Year: 1998
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musician's Friend
Features:
It's got the average stuff, volume and tone knobs, three pickups (one humbucker) and a 5 position switch.
Playability:
Low action, great intonation. Had to adjust the string level because the one fret buzzed a bit when I first got it.
Sound Quality:
For a beginner's model this is the best I've played.
Durability:
I dropped it and it still stayed in tune... need I say more?
