Jackson guitars are pretty much a shredder metal player's guitar. They generally feature wild and funky head stocks such as this one with the pointed headstock that doesn't really go with country or indie rock music. The kind of person who would grab these guitars would be a hard rock or metal type guy. These Jackson guitars have a very nice comfortable neck with a bolt on maple wood. It's a very comfortable neck and overall a great feel for shredding in solo playing. This guitar features a alder wood body as well and EMG pickups which give it a great metal sound.

The tone of thi guitar is pretty good for anything hard rock and up. The median balance gets a nice frequency response in the mid range area. Since it has very high output active pickups you to get a good EQ all way across the frequency board with the bottom and low of the pick ups with that nice mid range wood tone. Overall it's a very cool guitar if you like the shredding look for the guitar and buy large pretty well balanced guitar. This guitar does not feature Floyd Rose bridge which many Jackson guitars do so if you need something where you're to be able to pull off and on the tremolo system then this is not to be the guitar for you.
At new you can find these guitars for rider around $800 or so. So for the used section you could probably find them right around $400-$500 in this downtime gear market. It's a cool guitars for the money if you really like this type of look otherwise I would go with a normal Fender Stratocaster type guitar.

A hard tail bridge
One volume, one tone and a three way switch
To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of hard tail bridges. The angle is not something I'm used to considering I played floyded guitars for most of my career. I also prefer the feel of a floyd as they have a bit of give in them when you start bending. That said, this guitar is pretty decent. The fretwork wasn't bad, but it could have been better. For the price point, it's to be expected. The neck joint isn't too bad on this, but there are better ones out there. The overall hardware is decent, but there are a few things I'd change such as the nut and the tuners.
The guitar sounded pretty good. In fact, it was more resonant than the floyded DKMG that I played. It's a solid metal guitar with a really good pickup configuration. The EMG 81 in the bridge gives it a very nice bite. This allows you to cut through a ver dense mix without a problem, and it's super tight, too. The EMG 85 gives an awesome tone for those fat and thick solo lead lines. Legato is super easy with these pickups, and they work awesome for metal. If you get a chance, try the 18V mod on them as they really help open them up.
If you're looking for a decent Jackson with a hardtail bridge that doesn't break the bank, check out this guitar. It's a solid performer, and it is pretty resonant. Be sure to play a few as some of the fretwork on a few of the models in the store was a bit iffy. About the only rival in its price point would be some sort of LTD, which I find are equally as good.

Japanese-made guitar with 24 frets neck screwed, equipped with two active EMG 81 (acute) and 85 (sleeve), fixed bridge with string-through, volume general, a tonality gn eral and slecteur microphones 3 positions. I took the transparent black finish that is beautiful!
This guitar is very pleasant to play with a perfect inning for the rhythm but also for fast game highs. This Jackson is not very heavy and will not ruin the same back after two hours on stage! I plugged in my Warhead and I get insane distortion sounds as clear sound but I Orais prfr an EMG 60 in serious to me.
I bought this guitar to play one tone below and have the big sound I wanted, and my Warhead I get aggressive and powerful rhythms, very clean and clear sound without being too cold.
I use it for 6 months and I am not of my purchase, this guitar is beautiful and is very affordable compared to its price is justified. I would do the same choice eyes closed!

Since production does Jackson bought by Fender, Jackson Many more come from the US, but is DKMGT Japanese manufactured.
24 frets, active EMG pickups (81 bridge, 85 neck).
No Pink Floyd: through-Strings, fixed bridge.
One volume knob, one of Tone.
Channel Trs fast in Maple screwed if my information is correct.
I shall finish level 10 because it's really perfect, I have personal in transparent black, and it is awesome =)
To compare with the DKMGT basic microphones have changed, and the knob in addition to "boost" Has removed.
The neck is super super fast and enjoyable, the slides alone, Access in acute is impeccable for a guitar has 24 frets ...
It is my Cort G210 lgre, my guitar beginners ^ ^ no worries of weight, really enjoyable to have trs webbing.
Level as well is simply superb: Cup with handle claims fairly reversed, which leaves many on the left ... typical Jackson, giving it a great style.
The series in the dinky, I think it's the most beautiful, APRS each his own.
This gives a very easy trs good sound, some rglages and presto!
This scraper has a Polivalente exeptionnelle:
Consumer Alert sounds clear: They are trs good, I had the emg prjujs rputs microphones as "loggers", not at all! the neck pickup (EMG 85) gives a nice clear sound trs, trs clean, trs fluid, rather warm. Even if the guitar has a neck screwed it gives an exellent sustain.
The highlight of the guitar, heavy distortion, they are monstrous! What breath! The 81 at the bridge provides an output level glove! well recess, it is more oriented mtal, and it is the foot prcis Its dynamic, we just get everything! the little rocker in the gro mtalleux.
In short, a guitar or if it is known to dpatouiller in rglages, his pass impecable.
I use it for 2 weeks and I am convinced trs, the particular feature I like most are the microphones and the shape of the handle, the particular feature I like least ... A YEN NO = D.
Acqurir before I tried dja EMG on a Jackson warrior, and I tried the Dinky DK2T.
This skyscraper has an exellent report qualitprix, (870 in shop, 700 on the net) for finishing and sound its worth.
I have no experience of normment because even though I tried quite a few guitars and this is my 2nd guitar, I do it again this choice without a doubt!
