There are alot of inexpensive Jacksons out there, and in my opinion, they shouldn't even have the Jackson name on them. This is not one of them. If you ever get a chance to play one, take it for a test drive, I think you'll like it.
Model Year: 1994
Where Obtained: Local Music Store
Japanese built Jackson. 24 frets, rosewood fretboard on a maple neck. Floyd Rose bridge, transparent red finish and two dual coil Jackson pickups. I grabbed this guitar from a local music store for $325, obviously, they didn't know what they had. All it took was a new set of strings and a quick neck/bridge adjustment and it was ready to go.
An incredibly well built guitar, the playability and overall feel of this guitar is excellent. Ultra low and clean action with no fret buzz, great sustain and clarity.
The guitar produces a surprisingly wide variety of tones, from a whisper to full on, it always sounds clear with great sustain and tone, never "tinny" or "weak" sounding. I run mine into my ADA-MP1 and I can always get the sound I'm looking for. One thing I didn't like .. I found the stock bridge pickup to be a little underpowered (to me anyway) so I changed it to a DiMarzio X2N (DP-102).
The guitar is very well made, it holds it's adjustments very well and has never given me any trouble.
