Hi everyone, as you ppl see, im new to this forum, because i had a great doubt, about a guitar im buying today. Because i dont like chit-chat
these are the facts.

There's a guy selling me a Jackson Soloist SLSMG at (im from Mexico) 3800 pesos (like 350 US dlls) and i just wanted to know if it was an authentic jackson, because there some things that left me with doubt like, the back of the neck is not black, its like wood, and the frets are shark inlay and not piranha inlay.

These are the pictures of the guitar i am being offered.

And these are pictures from Guitar center or any other internet guitar shop

So ...thats my doubt , as i just said, the one im being offered has wood texture on the back of the neck and has shark inlay on frets. The other isnt.

I would really appreciate it if you told me what you guys think about this guitar , because its at a very goood price and im probably buying it today, so i just want to know if its an authentic Jackson Soloist SLSMG that came out with slight changes.

Thx in advance

P.S : Im sorry if this isnt the right place for this thread.

The pickups are wrong, but the rest of it seems fine. It's probably the older one, where they made them with EMG-HZ's instead of EMG 81/85's

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Yes, the older ones were made with EMG HZ's , but my concern is also being bolt on, and not Neck through like most soloists.

Oh, and to the 2nd guy, it do says Jackson on it. its just a different headstock.
