This guitar is the best one i have, i was looking at it one day at the guitar store, came in the next day and it had been marked down by like $200! so i had to take it, best choice too.i would want to buy this guitar if it were stolen, at first i didnt like the reverse inlays but now i really enjoy them so thats good.
Price: $274.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Larry's Music
Has 24 frets, reverse head and reverse shark tooth inlays,2 duncan designed humbuckers, double locking tremlo floyd rose. has very nice neck that plays very smooth. 1 tone and one volume control,3 ways pickup selector.
Very easy to play, u can dive bomb the heck out of it and it wont come out of tune.
Sound is great, u can get some great clean sounds as well especially some killer leads and cruching rhythms.
no buzzing, i use it thru my gnx3 and its a dream come true, also thru my crate xt 65 amp which is okay but since its going thru my gnx3 is fine.
In a nutshell I can think of better for the new price of this guitar but I like it's real good for 200 bucks and would pay as much as 300 for it in the future.
For the new price the DXMG is a better choise for little more.

This thing has the fastest/smoothest neck I have ever touched. I love the look of the sharktooth inlays but like most guitars they are WRONG. There shouldn't be a marker at fret 1 people! No big deal though. The reversed headstock looks OK but it truely sucks to tune, especialy when coupled with the floyde rose trem. Changeing strings is a job. Once the strings are stretched and tuned it stays there though.
Body style is very comfortable and creates the usual alder/flame maple tone, so thats that :)
As far as the pickups go, I usualy dump the stock pups first thing but these actualy sound pretty good and more importantly for me rite now, there very versatile. They can (allong with a 15 watt marshall) crank out the Megadeth crunch as well as the reverbed to death clean tone of somthing like Clapton. I haven't been restrained by the pickups at all even with the H H config and no single.
Again the bridge is a Floyde Rose "Licensed" double locking 2-point floating trem. You either love or hate a Floyde Rose and even if you love it you usualy hate the copies but the JT580 Jackson trem on this is actualy a pretty nice one (just as good as a true floyde).
Fast, flexable, and smooth. And thats all I got tah say about that - in my best Forest Gump
It don't get the perfect Metal, Blues, or Jazz sound but it does a real good job tryin it all.
Basicly as with any versital guitar it doesn't do anything perfectly but does it all "good".
Plenty good sounding for most people.
My 10 month old knocked it off the stand the first day onto a concrete floor and it didn't even lose tune. Nuff said.
