oh hai UG, havent posted in a while
I traded my fja 6505 for this usa jackson sl2, has grover tuners, ofr, and a set of duncans (probably a jb/59 or jazz) anyways forst thing I did was pop in a spring and throw some 11-56s on there and WOW what a guitar, it is glorious. Pic

Its awesome

Now, with the titan on the way out I had to pick up its replacement. With no adieu, here is my new mark iii!


Its a blue stripe, eq, reverb, and simuclass.....and....... COLISEUM!!! It truly is a beast, and the best thing is, where the red stripe seemed to struggle (clean headroom and lower gain) this is flawless! I can literally get 3 great tones out of this mark, especially with the r2 mod, and the reverb mod has been done so no annoying hum. I am in mark heaven right now
A few thing I note: you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the high gain tones of the red and blue stripes. This head weighs a damn metric ton due to these mongoloid transformers. The tolex on this original headshell is nice, and the amp is pristine. The amp has a big r initial instead of mb (which means randall smith :love:

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

Oops, I should have said 150 or 180, not 300. 300 is the series, there are either 150 watt Simul-class or 180 watt AB versions. Seeing as its a Simul-Class, its the 150 watt version.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

You sure thats an SL2? Dont the USA Jacksons usually have binding on the neck and headstock?
#13
It is an sl2, not an sl1 or a sl2h
It was a limited run where they tried to make it more cost effective by using import hardware. It has a quartersawn maple neck thru and poplar body, all usa shop.
The mesa is the 150w, but it might be a green stripe so it could be 165. Ill have to call mesa. It is amazing.
