My mate has a Jackson guitar, I havent personally seen it in person yet, but its a thru-neck apparently, and the body is painted, but the neck isnt, which is weird.

I was generally under the impression that Thru-necks were only unpainted if they had a unpainted body as well, and if the body was painted theyd paint the neck as well.

So yeah, are unpainted necks with a painted body common in thru-neck guitars.

It's not common, but it's not rare either. It's hard to explain, basically if this was a pokemon card it with be a un-shiny ninetales.

.. if it were a dragonball character, it would be child Gohan
.. if it were a yu-gi-oh card, it would be a dark magician
.. if it were a pokemon in a game, it would be a dragonair
.. if it were a super hero, it would be the flash
.. if it were a guitar, it would be a neck-thru Jackson of some kind.

You get my point?
The paint ends where the neck joins the body, look at some carvin neck thru guitars, some of them have unpainted necks.

I'm just wondering where the painted body will end....

I'm convinced hes lying and that its a bolt on, but meh.

Looks kinda weird, I would never buy a guitar like that, the painted neck looks so much nicer.

Anyway, beautiful guitar.

I prefer unpainted necks so much more than painted.A neck thru guitar with an oil finished neck is awesome in my mind.

Wrong, depending on the paint and general preference, the neck can become sticky and harder to play as your hands start to sweat. Alexi L. had the neck on his guitars shaved for the same reason, tho I doubt this would effect someone mashing power chords.

You realise that Laiho is the lead guitarist, right?

^That one doesn't look too bad actually. Maybe 'cos it's a trans finish, it seems to go alright, but that LTD looks disgusting at the joint.

its not that uncommon, bc rich does it alot with there NT designs, such as the Beast which has an Inverted Beast Headstock design that goes into the back of the body

i like it with the front of the guitar painted, and the back (both neck and body) with a natural finish.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

That's how I had my Carvin made. Except I got the natural wood on back clear glossed cause I like the feel of painted necks but don't like the look.

The new Jackson Demmelition V has an unfinished neck and painted body, since you referred to your friend's Jackson.

yeah, i got my legra like that too, except with a satin finish (i don't like the look or feel of painted necks, really, though i don't mind the LP-style see-through painted necks for some reason).

Yep, the power chord part was directed at the average guitar player (protip : not Laiho)
