« SSS beginner Jackson »

Publié le 08/14/11 à 19:22
This is a very beginner guitar that has some very unknown wood that's not really used in any other guitar out there. It also has below average build quality overall. The guitar has the following specs:

Indian Cedro body
Maple bolt-on neck with rosewood fretboard
24 jumbo frets with dot inlays
Vintage style tremolo
SSS configuration
One volume, one tone
Five way switch

UTILIZATION

This guitar had a slightly twisted neck. If you sight down the neck, you could see it twisting in a few different directions. A truss rod adjustment further showed that it had a slight twist to it. This can be fixed, but it'll take some time and money. The fix for this is more than the guitar itself costs, so there's no real point in trying to fix the thing. The nut had issues, the frets had issues and the overall guitar was just pretty bad. Keep in mind that other models aren't like this, so yours might be a bit better.

SOUNDS

The pickups in this are very noisy. They're also not really my style. The bridge pickup is very bright. It was piercing to my ears, even with the mystery wood trying to dull the overall tone. The split position is only average at best. The middle pickup is something I never use alone, so I can't really comment on that. The next split position, again, is nothing to write home about. The neck pickup is very dull and doesn't have the output that I tend to go for. A pickup swap isn't even worth it.

OVERALL OPINION

I don't recommend this model at all. It's a very beginner model, and some of these have some serious issues. Mine had a twisted neck, and the fix would have been more than what the guitar itself costs. The pickups in this are also really bad, and the overall build quality just isn't worth your time and money.
