« Great Guitar »

Publié le 04/07/11 à 19:35
This is a guitar in Jackson's lower priced JS series. It's a Rhoads styled body, with the asymmetrical V-like shape. If has a maple bolt-on neck, an Indian Cedro body, and a Rosewood fretboard. It has 24 Jumbo frets, and Jackson Shark Fin inlays. It has a Two-point, Jackson Licensed Floyd Rose style double locking Tremolo. The nut is a Locking Jackson Licensed Floyd Rose nut. It has two knobs, a volume knob and a tone knob, which control both pickups. It has a 3-way toggle-style pickup selector switch. Position 1 is neck, 2 is both neck and bridge, and 3 is bridge pickup. It uses Jackson CVR Humbuckers, and Jackson tuners.

UTILIZATION

It is very easy to play this guitar. The Fretboard has the standard Jackson compound radius, 12 to 16" (304.8 to 406.4mm). The neck is thin and a dream to play on. It is one of the best playing, lower-priced guitars I've played. As with all V's, it can be hard to play sitting down if you don't play in the Classical position, but I normally play like that sitting down, so it's not an issue for me. It is very easy to get a great sound from this guitar. The Jackson licensed Floyd is one of the best Licensed trems out there in my opinion. Very easy to set up, stays set up as long as you don't do anything stupid, it built great and uses quality parts, and keeps the guitar in tune, even through Slayer-style, Whammy bar abusive solos. Shredding on this guitar is a breeze, as is riffing. It's well balanced and is not prone to neckdives.

SOUNDS

It is very, very easy to get a good Rock, Hard Rock, and Metal tone, clean or dirty, from this guitar. The humbuckers have enough bite to cut without being harsh, and there's enough bass to keep it sounding warm, but not flubby and muddy. They're high output, great for distortion, but the cleans are nice as well. I always use the bridge for distorted riffs, and the neck for leads and cleans. The pickups are clear, articulate, and made for metal. What more would you want from a Shred guitar?

OVERALL OPINION

This is a metalhead's guitar. Perfect for any type of metal. Very easy to shred and riff on. The neck is the best in the business. I love Jackson necks. This is a great guitar for those who can't afford one of the higher-end ones. Solid build quality, great quality wood and parts, and just good quality in general. Great guitar for an even greater price.
