The Jackson WR1 is a more extreme guitar that Jackson came up with for the metal market. It's a very "sharp" looking guitar that definitely stands out from the crowd, and it has been copied by other brands such as Ibanez. The WR1 features an alder body, maple neck with ebony fretboard and shark fin inlays, 24 jumbo frets, an original Floyd Rose, HH configuration, volume knob, tone knob and 3 way switch.


This is a really comfortable guitar to play, despite its looks. The neck-thru design and extended lower horn cutaway allow you to really get up to the higher frets without much of an issue at all. It reminds me a lot of the Kelly, actually. The compound radius on this guitar is really cool. This allows you to chord easier at the lower frets, but at the higher frets, you can bend to the moon without an issue thanks to its flatter radius. I'm a huge fan of compound radii, and I wish more guitar builders would utilize them.


The Warrior is a beast in terms of tone. It has an Invader in the bridge and a Full Shred in the neck. The Invader is an extremely bass heavy pickup with tons of output. Thanks to the neck-thru design and alder body, it seems to really work out nicely in this guitar. It's somewhat pidgeon-holed into doing only metal, but that's kinda what this guitar's entire vibe is. The Full Shred is a very awesome neck pickup that's kinda like a mix between a '59 and a JB. It's searing enough to have the fast shred lines stand out, but it's also fat enough to not sound overly thin.


Those looking for more extreme guitars should definitely look into this guitar. I'm not sure why more metal guitarists don't use this. I guess they're more used to seeing either the Vigier or the Ibanez for whatever reasons. The fretwork on this is great, the guitar sounds good, and while it lacks versatility compared to other models, it does that metal tone in spades.
