New Jackson Pro line!
 
Anyone seen these yet?

http://www.guitarplanet.eu/news/296...ies-models.html

They look absolutely gorgeous, as long as they're made in Korea (if they don't have another Japanese factory I'm thinking about snagging one of those King V's!)

Silverburst, maple boarded Dinky? Nice.

Firebirdz 10-07-2012 11:52 AM

If only that white KV didn't have an FR... grr.

A 3 tuner per side headstock on that would make it just heavenly

T00DEEPBLUE 10-07-2012 11:52 AM

:lurk:

Needs more Kellys though.

I really love the KVMGQ

H4T3BR33D3R 10-07-2012 12:08 PM

So much want.





Too bad I like my KB Rhoads too much. :(

jeleopard 10-07-2012 12:09 PM

So very much want.

I love Silverburst.

Fisheth24 10-07-2012 12:12 PM

Thing here is, would the prices for the X series stuff come down?

Or am I wishfully thinking?

T00DEEPBLUE 10-07-2012 12:31 PM

The only problem i'm seeing is how expensive these guitars could be. They could cost something like 1100 if they're anything like the old Pro Series. :(

Fisheth24 10-07-2012 12:34 PM

I've seen a price for the KVMG at about 670 on Dolphin Music, not too sure if that's correct though.

T00DEEPBLUE 10-07-2012 12:37 PM

That's actually not too bad. Are these guitars made in India or Japan?

Fisheth24 10-07-2012 12:38 PM

I'm honestly not too sure, seeing as their Japanese Factory closed down...

I'm hoping for Korea myself, but I don't think there's been any Jackson's made in Korea. Could be wrong though!

T00DEEPBLUE 10-07-2012 12:41 PM

I've played some Krappy guitars from Korea myself. I really hope its Japan that they're made in.

Fisheth24 10-07-2012 12:42 PM

Will have to wait for further info, but I'm not hoping for too much, well except a seven string Rhodes

T00DEEPBLUE 10-07-2012 12:44 PM

Yeah, Jackson need to build more 7 string guitars. I liked the SLAT7 i played one time, although Tom didn't like it much. He says it just wasn't the guitar for him.

Fisheth24 10-07-2012 12:47 PM

They are doing a SLAT7 in the X series, but I was hoping for a V as a seven string, but I'm torn between picking one of these Pro guitars (depending on Prices), an LTD V-307 or a BC Rich Jr V7...

Tough choice :D

Dave_Mc 10-07-2012 03:04 PM

that chlorine burst dinky looks absolutely awesome. Also i'm glad they have frt-x000s instead of those jackson trems (frts aren't amazing, but they're better than the jt580LP, and also should be a direct swap for an OFR). EDI:T: also JB/59 or EMG 81/85 in everything isn't exactly exciting me. But still better than worse stock pickups.

Need to see where they're made, though. I also suspect they'll be pretty dear, at least in this part of the world (UK/Ireland/Europe).

I see no reason at all to get those guitars over a used Ibanez Prestige. (speaking from an American's standpoint)

True, I guess some like pointy guitars?

yeah that's why i'm very concerned to see where they're made (and also a rough price). If they're around the 500 mark (and i strongly suspect they'll be more) and they were japanese, that'd be awesome. Unfortunately I suspect they'll be 600-700 and not MIJ.
