Hey guys,

I've finally came down to AXL Jackkknife , only $225 !
And its made of Alder not basswood which I hear is better.

Let me know what you guys think.

Is this an upgrade from my Ibanez RG? Considering I dont want floating bridge on this one.

Guitar World magazine did a review of the Jackknife and a couple of other AXL guitars a couple of months ago. I don't have the issue right on hand, but when I get home I'll edit this post. I do remember that out of the three, the Jackknife was the reviewer's favorite. He didin't say much about the wood, but he particularly enjoyed the P90s

**edit** It's the May 2006 issue. There is also part of the review at this page...

I'd get a Jackson JS-whatever for that price range, man.



Seconded. I saw these at my local store, they looked cheap.

If you do get a JS series Jackson, get a warrior. No one plays warriors, they need the love.

im looking at the AXL because first its almost $100 cheaper than the jackson, and it has a cool design where you can reach the higher frets better... :\

Though the $300 warrior jackson does look nice

Good alder is no better than good basswood, it's a case of preference.
My name is Tom, feel free to use it.
