This is part of the higher quality overseas series that Jackson has been releasing. It has fairly high quality parts all around, especially for the price that you're getting this guitar at. This guitar has the following specs:

Carved top alder body
Maple neck with a bound rosewood fretboard
24 jumbo frets with shark tooth inlays
EMG 81 and 85 pickups
Licensed floyd rose bridge
One volume, one tone
Three way switch

UTILIZATION

I'll start off with the bad as it's pretty small. The licensed floyd on this isn't that great. I find that it sucks some tone. If you can, replace it with an original floyd rose. It'll be a nice improvement in terms of stability and tone. That aside, the guitar is pretty much up there with a lot of other very nice guitars. The fret work on this is very nice, and I was able to get some low action without much of an issue. The ends were nice and properly rounded so I didn't have any issues cutting my hand when moving up and down the neck. Inlay work was also consistent.

SOUNDS

The EMGs in this really gave this guitar some life. The EMG 81 in the bridge is great for that high gain cutting tone. With the alder body, this thing cuts through the densest mix without any issues at all. It's a bit bland for midgain, and the cleans are sterile, but the high gain sounds are top notch. The EMG 85 in the neck is awesome. It's a super fat pickup that is very direct. You can get all kinds of crazy legato sounds with this thing, and it can get pretty smooth if you're looking for that tone. Cleans are decent, and so are mid gain tones. However, it's not the best for those who are wanting to play stuff like classic rock.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are very solid, and you can get them at a great price. Some have fretwork issues, but they're few and far between. The biggest issue with this guitar is the licensed floyd, but an original floyd rose should drop right in. If you can get one at a good price, jump on it. It might even become your main guitar.
