Recently, I have been trying out guitars lately, trying to pick a second guitar. I have been trying out the Jackson series, as well as the Gibson. I felt that Gibson had a really thick neck as well sticky to. Jacksons necks are insanely thing and sickly smooth. What do you think of this guitar, personally i havent tried it out because i havent gone into Vancouver yet. Comments and Suggestions are always welcomed

i personally think its a pretty good guitar coming from the jackson shop. but what amp do you use? and what music genre do you play?
#3
I use a 15 watt peavy amp but im going to upgrade to a 60watt line 6 amp and i play metal and rock.
#5

Playing more paintball and reading more books than playing guitar lately.

why not there good



Alot of people think the tone is "digital" sounding.

The soloist is a great guitar, but pricey. I also believe thats the one with the fixed bridge (no trem)

Last time I checked the SL3 was about a grand, maybe a few hundred more depending on the paintjob. The '06 models come with Original Floyd Roses, so they're good guitars considering they're MIJ.

I'd say get a new SL3 and a better amp. An American Jackson isn't going to sound any better than a Japanese one through a Line 6.

thats a bit of a bad point wouldnt you say since your spending $1110 on a guitar the electronics should work

A Spider II can sound good if you put a good guitar through it. Listen to my songs if you don't believe me. All done on a Spider II 30w. The rep they got is from tone purists who are used to the sound of tubes and can't handle something else coming along. I wouldn't say thier modeling is spot on but I don't really care. For the price there is nothing better. A Roland Cube doesn't hang with 'em at all imo.

The Soloist SL@ is an awesome guitar btw. My friend has that one with the shattered glass paint job. The neck thru just looks sexy.

well yeh cheap repair maybe cost $30 for all new electronics but yeh Jackson should work on that for future models. and if you wanna have sex with it just imagine the bloke that will be buying your guitar after your finish with it.
