I usually don't like extreme/pointy guitars, but my brother was selling his beginner Jackson JS30KE, so I bought it off him for $120 AUD ($107 US). It is about 3 years old, but has barely been played and was cheap as chips. I bought it because I really liked how the body shape felt, especially standing up with the strap through my belt and over the horn.

Heres a video review I did of it (I made the review before I decided to buy it off him). For the first sound test, it is supposed to say bridge test, not middle position.

Pros:
-Cheap
-I love how my picking arm can rest on top of the body while playing standing up
-Feels really comfortable when I put the strap through my belt and over the horn like in the photos below. It fixes the neck heaviness and actually makes it really comfortable to play standing up. Even more than my other well-balanced guitars because it feels so secure.

Cons:
-Extremely neck heavy (the video shows that), but fixed if you don't mind looking a bit silly.
-Feels cheap (makes sense!)
-Bad pickups (expected)

Final comments: Good for a beginner, or even an intermediate who isn't fussy. A decent back up for a distinguished player who is playing in a bad neighbourhood and has some better pickups laying around doing nothing.

Man you are very very creative, but it definitely takes at least five minutes to wear the strap like that and hang the guitar. HNGD!!

Just attach the strap holder to the top-right neck bolt (when looking at the back of the guitar while it's upright). It should balance it out.

That's a good idea. I might try that. I do like how the guitar doesn't move at all though with the belt trick. If I push the neck down it will bounce right back up to playing position. It's always where I want it.
