The Jackson Japan (There are only three places of manufacture for Jackson: United States, Japan and India) low / mid-range factory there ten Danne is a friend to me the was assigned to Pihmisation apprci because he performed work on the Jackson JRR94 (https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index% 2Cidproduit 2C26132.html%)

Given LTAT varnish I lai Fully pumice: the body is composed of five pices of wood!
In fact the tip of horn suprieur is alone in 2 pieces! So the rest of the body (80%) consists of three coins.
Dun it all covered as plating to hide collages! According to the technical description of the test of "Guitar & Bass" in November 1993, it is in Poplar
The Bolt is made of two pices drable as the head tilt is reported, which is less good for the sound handle a pice but paradoxically Confre Resistors better in time!
The key is 24 cases Jumbo frets with rosewood back into plastic ....
JT580 Tremolo Licensed Floyd (Lonewolf confirmation;))
Mcaniques Jackson
2 doubles Jackson J50N to handle and J92C for the bridge, CONTRL a single volume and a 3 slecteur positions.
Tip: The pickups have 4 splitables son and therefore, if we replace the volume by its equivalent push-pull (or lon adds a switch) it doubles the number of sounds;)

In short lensemble correct in the price from the body 5 picesJe found better than JRR94 while they are both the Japan Professional Jackson dune Danne ten, she t may be less labandon leaves, the microphones are less rust etc..

UTILIZATION

The handle is typically Jackson, oddly I Laime less than the JRR94! It is true that a lot jai sanded the handle of this dernire which the affine: lol:
I do CCAA acute correct: we are left with the heel (which is fixelattache belt!) In hand from the box 17me! In addition the horn makes infrieure CCAA dernires two boxes quite difficult!
The form draws for Marty Friedman (https://www.martyfriedman.com/) is sympathetic cons I find it fairly comfortable sitting!
Be careful when you put it on a stand, it tends slide!

Note: my friend does not use vibrato and I did not stem! So no opinion on it ...

SOUNDS

As the form augurs: its not a guitar Jazz
But strangely jai prfr crunch sound to others! Indeed the style that goes best on this guitar with pickups of origin is the Blues: Who would have thought
Tests of stuff in my time (VHT Rack: GP3, 2/50/2 & Tweed 2x12), the clean sounds are not great crunch sound with the volume back! When you decrease the volume it gets better but you lose a lot of brightness, the sound becomes duller! Ca cest cool is volume and tonal
As we feel the guitar distortion over lese, but we must admit that the microphones show their limits rather quickly
The micro severe drooling as much as his alter ego sharp! In clean (volume down and crunch it's going in too rough distortion EST.

OVERALL OPINION

Jai enjoyable t surprised because generally I find what sounds better than the JRR94, yet the microphones that are less probably better oxide ring! The timber apparently DIFFERENT? My rack has changed? The new season of American Idol? The flight of the swallows Boston? Wind speed Beijing? ? But I Mgar
Overall the two guitars are trs which explains the close similarities between the two opinions;)

Obviously amlioreraient new pickups probably sound gnrale but they are not so bad!
A small split should rsoudre a lot of problem in its clear, and that's how we optimize a guitar for cheap
Against distortion as well by ca mtal will mean (precision etc.).

This guitar pretty Gnant ananmoins a default: the handle moves! In fact this happens for two reasons:
Careers News is not dense enough wood are quavec time it starts moving!
Either the problem is the screws in the heel
The good things are moving in all directions, you can either make such effects Dive Bombing: supeeeerrrr (ok jexagre) or carrment bring out the low E key
Once the string bet and screws tight EST perfectly playable but it should not be too hard on the handle by pressing on the head or be too look on the holding of the agreement ...

The shape is a matter of gots, but it's still fairly comfortable lusage
She had to turn around 4000 francs ago ansCest 10 correct!

To note I am EMBT pffff!
Jaime the look but its not comfortable trs!
Judge the guitar in labsolue or taking into account the problem of race in which case the note trssvre'll be!
The sound is average but there are far worse ...

Jackson Kelly STDPublished on 04/25/08 at 03:51
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a notice about my Standard Kelly made in Japan in 1995.
The body is alder, and from what I can see, at least two parties.
The neck is maple 24 cases, and also composed of two parts: the handle itself, and the head. The key is rosewood, with markers in plastoc; damage, I would have liked a little pearl. Jackson lifts oil bath. They are good.
Two double-coil in Jackson.
The bridge, licensed Floyd Rose is a model specific to Kelly (I know, I have enough shit to replace a bridge ...).
The settings are minimal: a 3-position selector, and a master volume. I was not against a tone knob, but good.

On paper it sounds honest I did not like discovering a body in parts, though.......

On paper it sounds honest I did not like discovering a body in parts, though. The finish is good, but perfect, especially at the neck, but it did not affect the game

UTILIZATION

The handle is fine, some might say a little wide, but it is nice and fast. Still, it is still a bit of getting used to. The big problem comes mostly from the heel which makes access to some obvious acute, difficult and downright impossible for the latest boxes.
Body shape (which I still very beautiful) does not play sitting comfortable, unless you play with the strap and bringing the right leg behind the body: in short, we play like we played sitting upright ... Precisely, standing, the body tends to "walk" because of the position of the tie strap. Personally, I play from my belt before the dorsal horn: the Kelly is so super stable.
It takes some getting used to the weight of the beast: with an alder body, it is within 7 kilos if I remember correctly. I often find it difficult to shoulder the first week! Choose a strap with pad.
The floyd is very good. I'm not a fan of vibrato, but I have extensively tested this: keeping agreements is impeccable.
The micro acute delivers a very effective distortion, clear sound deplorable. The neck pickup is itself pretty grim in all areas. Find her could not be easier: there is only really satisfactory position: the switch to the bridge pickup, volume knob and the bottom. This guitar excels in any case only in one directory: the metal distortion.

The Kelly is a guitar atypical discomfort of the first grip skeptical. However, once you have found his feet, playing with is very nice. Still remains the top of the handle virtually unusable.

SOUNDS

As mentioned above, Kelly is very good for metal, as it is not a lover of soli very acute. For the rest, my faith ... it's a pretty bad guitar.
I used it on my Marshall Valvestate 8080 and then on my Laney GH100S with a Metal Zone (yuck), a Dod G7 (yeah, it's going), and the distortion amp (waouh!). It produces a very "Graoua" not particularly crystal-clear (I remember a story a balance: the sound engineer: "Hey you could reduce your not serious? Me:" ha, no, I'm already at zero ... "the sound engineer:" I'm rhaa to -10 "). While it lacks some precision, but not runny either. It lacks a little sustain, anyway.

I find it excellent for metal, mostly rhythmic death, for the rest, it is catastrophic.

OVERALL OPINION

I had time to play on my Kelly: I have since 1995. At the time, the 3 / 4 of the scratch of my friends also bought a Jackson (ha, death metal ...): PS1, Randy Rhoads, King V, etc ... A question of image, basically. That said, these guitars are cut to the metal, and it, too. That's the problem. As soon as one wants to play something else, bah to buy something else! His big black spot is his total lack of versatility.
Rather, it has aged well: the handle has not moved in spite of frequent changes of tone and pulling, heavy use and a long-shelved. Electronics also has aged very well, only the switch is sometimes a bit of his own.
At the time, I had paid 4,300 francs (€ 650, what), it still pays pretty design and brand. Anyway, I still enjoyed playing with it quite appropriate to my use (scratch in a group of death). The price / quality ratio is still very average: there are now many guitars better equipped, better finished, more playable and versatile for less. That said, its original design makes a unique guitar. Kelly left to buy one, I would recommend other models, however: the KE3 or KE7, for example.

Most:
The handle, super thin and very wide highway.
Sound, very Graoua, even though it lacks some precision.
The floyd, which holds the tuning well.
The design! It's late and aggressive.

The -:
The total lack of versatility!
The balance, which forces to place the strap over the upper horn.
The top of the neck, almost inaccessible.
Weight: at first, the shoulder is suffering a bit.

Pm. a little lower aptly described the beast ... To summarize, making Japan (between 1990 & 1995), 24 frets, rosewood fingerboard, dot markers, plastic (it's cheap!), Vibrato Floyd Rose licensed Jackson JT-580LP (more than effective!), Two Jackson humbuckers, a J50 a bit mushy in the neck position and a J92-C-winded in the bridge position, volume control, the mechanical oil bath proper, a maple neck with reported head and body with poplar as the majority Jackson Japanese models that period. So I want albeit a base model, but mine has a peculiarity. This is not a pitch 25.5 inches (648 mm)! After several steps so I did not believe he is a baritone pitch 668 mm (26.3 inches).

So I want albeit a base model, but mine has a peculiarity. This is not a pitch 25.5 inches (648 mm)! After several steps so I did not believe he is a baritone pitch 668 mm (26.3 inches). In short, I never found any trace of this type of pitch on these guitars ... Weird weird. 6 / 10 because the equipment properly without more, is not a must ...

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, fairly large and very flat. The varnish is correct, it glides well and the key is not unpleasant. Not a big stick, but damn. For cons, the paw is because the width of the neck may obstruct small mimine and fatigue occurs quickly (in comparison, a handle is a highway Lag stratospheric !)... The interface is nice because the shape, somewhat convoluted, is relatively well studied and balanced. Standing, no particular problem, the strap (strap-lock fasteners behind the junction sleeve / body and halfway up the horn of the bridge) is not a concern (despite what I've read elsewhere) just that we do not play guitar on his lap. The body is not too unbalanced despite a head that has a tendency to dive (one sleeve a little too long as 668 mm?). Having said this last point is correct because it is far from the mediocrity of a BC Rich Warlock (in the same range of course!). When seated, the guitar is not a problem, although this is not Byzantium. It is always better than a Flying V! The big black point of this guitar and its race remains access to treble that is very bad. Make up on all 6 strings in 5 / 6 last boxes is relatively difficult, and this because of a heel junction too massive and not profiled. It's doable with my big paws (I am fortunate to have toes rather long), but downright crappy for small hands. Otherwise it is quite heavy in fact, there are a lot of material on this guitar with its enormous horn ... For the rest, vibrato is a very good job and is perfect agreement. Get a sound is easy: you plug it and starts the volume. Then it's the amp and the guitar player doing the rest (see review below) ... 6 / 10 because of access to acute and small imbalance ...

SOUNDS

To begin with, this guitar was very well suited to what I was doing (before storing and do not show that on the occasion ...), ie Thrash / Death. I was also soloist and despite its small flaws, it still did not hurt! Two options with this guitar bridge pickup with distortion and clean sound neck pickup. If it does the opposite, it's downright crap: the J92-C is too loud and clear in his J50 too mushy and winded distortion. So no compromise. By distortion, J92-C is doing pretty well despite average output level. This is not the king of accuracy but with good amp settings, it passes. In his clear, the J50 is velvety with very large and serious lack of potato is almost a virtue for its lack of precision greatly handicaps. For information, this guitar has been tested on Transtube Peavey Bandit 112, Peavey 6505 +, 60GX Crate and Randall RH150 ... I changed the pickup J92-C by a DiMarzio DP155 ToneZone I had in stock, and there, we win very much in power and precision, especially with distortion of course. Having said that with the micro Jackson sounds very cold, very clinical. I had earlier this microphone Lag Rockline on a bridge, and the difference is clear: the lag is downright hot hot side of the frigid Jackson! This coldness can find its utility when it plays death metal that kills. on the other hand, blues, pop-rockers or jazzmen, flee, this instrument is definitely not for you! 6 / 10 for a glaring lack of versatility, microphones and an original means of its clinical coldness that freezes your blood (no one likes or elsewhere) ...

OVERALL OPINION

I have this shovel (guitar, sorry ...) since 8 / 9 years now. I had been used for 500 euros at the time (as what we learn at any age), in very good condition because retyped in specialized stores. She lived well (not bad concert, a fall, a few farts and trimballée everywhere) and especially aged well: I have changed nothing except the bridge pickup, vibrato is worn like a charm and handle n Never worked. A very good point as this. I tried a bunch of guitars, shovel-mal of Lag (from low to very high end, I am a fan you would have understood), the Jackson USA, BC Rich of shit, and Schecter (super scratch, quality money monstrous!), the Ibanez (I hate it like that), PSE / LTD, Fender, Epiphone and Gibson and so on. I bought it because I had one second skyscraper scene not too expensive, and I like the shape and Marty Friedman (in all honor <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" /> !)... To summarize all this with the Jackson Kelly Std. its range is in no better or worse than another. The worst being reached by BC Rich Warlock-base of a friend (what a shit, eh guitar, not the dude <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="biggrin" /> !), And must by Lag Rockline / Roxanne / Arkane, the LTD and Schecter 400 series in the same price range (in 1995 it was worth $ 750 on U.S. catalog). The price / quality ratio is still not great for $ 750 in 1995 (and 500 € Used in 2002, I found the invoice !!!), we are more in the scam in the good deal! Honestly I do not do it again this election. With a few dollars extra you could otherwise tracking down a better opportunity (Epiphone, Schecter, Lag, LTD ... I omit the Ibanez pickups and shit) ... But hey, it&#39;s done is done! And baritone as it is, I care! 6 / 10, average ... It would have been 8 / 10 if the bill dealt only with the vibrato and holding the guitar in time!
