It's a Jackson, so it plays like a Ferrari drives - FAST. The string action is impeccable, and the fretwork is really nice for this price area. The sharkfin inlays are mega-cool, as is the pointy Jackson headstock. The tuners are very stable - I didn't have to re-tune once in an hour and a half of extreme shredding and bends! The fact that this axe has a TonePros bridge and a through-the-body stringing increases the sustain a lot, so it's a big, powerful-feeling guitar to play. And the quilted veneer with the transparent red finish is just breath-taking!


It sounds good, but it doesn't sound as good as it plays or looks. The EMG HZ pickups are a bit weak to my ears. I adjusted the height upward, to try and get more power from the strings, but it didn't do a whole lot for the tone. It's not that the pickups sound bad - they still sound better than most in this price range - I just thought that since the guitar plays sooooo well and has gorgeous cosmetics, this is just a tad lacking. The sounds are great for metal and rock, even jazz fusion, but I'd still think about replacing these pickups with some good Seymour Duncans.


Overall, this is a very good instrument. Any shredders wanting to get serious with a step-up instrument ought to consider this Jackson very seriously. With 24 frets, great natural resonance and acoustic sustain, and some decent pickups, this is a nice instrument to develop the finer points of advanced guitar techniques. With just a bit more money put into this, namely in the area of some better pickups, this guitar could be absolutely scary good. 8 out of 10.
