Arrow UPDATED: Jackson Warrior Customization

[12/26/12] Okay, so this thread is pretty old and this post is pretty cluttered so I'm rewriting the whole thing. I'm going to remove the few progress pictures in this post and instead picture each version of the instrument. Some of the pictures here can be found later in the thread as well, but for the sake of organization I'll have them here as well.

This was a 2002 Jackson Warrior WXRT that was found hanging in a garage in the frigid nothingness that is Western New York. The body was in pretty decent shape, but the fake top was something awful. Unfortunately, the next paint job was just as awful. I like the latest much more, but I may go for a lighter/speed blue sometime next year.

I no longer have a picture of the instrument as I received it.

Take 1:


Take 1.5:


Take 2:


Take 2.5:




And yeah, one thing that hasn't changed is my super terrible phone and lack of a real camera! :lol:

Thanks. I've never been much of a painter for some reason, just don't have a feel for it or something. I'll surely put up a bunch of pics of the finished product!

Hopefully I'll be able to get ahold of a real camera and take some pics when I get it together for a mockup.

That he did! I'm impressed.

I'm considering snagging some other pups instead of the EMGs now, though. Anyone have any experience with the GFS rails?

Man, you should paint it white and put some gold hardware on it. If not, I think I'll get another warrior in the future and do that. It shouldn't be to hard to find a beat up lower end one in a few years.

The 85 60 combo was the one I've always wanted to get. POST CLIPS PLEASE! If not at least tell what it's like (especially in respect to an 81 in the bridge if you've ever played that).

I actually had the combo on my old Jackson, I LOVED it, but they are the only active EMGs I've had, so I can't make comparisons. The 85 in the bridge was outstanding, the perfect pickup in my opinion.
